    Personally, I think SB was one of the worst Best Actress winners ever. Team Streep.

    1. Carey Mulligan, An Education
    2. Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
    3. Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
    4. Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia
    5. Helen Mirren, The Last Station

    forgettable winner and a pretty weak list of nominees (besides Mulligan). Saoirse Ronan, Emily Blunt, Marion Cotillard (she had a lead campaign after all), Abbie Cornish, Yolande Moreau, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Penélope Cruz were far more deserved of these spots

    This is a really bad lineup. Not that anyone gives a bd performance asuch but there’s certainly no great ones.

    Obviously Sandy shouldn’t have won. I’ll go with Meryl just over Gaby.

    2009 is one of the worst recent years of films. And Bullock is one of the worst Best Actress winners (Right behind Paltrow.)

    Bullock was very hard to take serious, since her dramatic acting was laughably bad. She was more Oscar worthy in The Proposal (even though that film was pretty awful, mainly thanks to White) than the truly horrendous Blindside.

    Mirren was atrocious.

    Streep had one of the funniest and her most comedic roles here, but her performance was pretty exaggerated and fluffy. Nothing really like the real Julia Child. Worthy of her nomination though.

    This should’ve been between Mulligan and Sidibe. I’ll give the edge to Sidibe, because that performance hit me like a truck.      

    Bullock and Mirren should’ve been replaced by Cornish, Cruz, Blunt…Hell I cannot even think of any contenders to make a good lineup this year was just that bad.

    I would have voted for Gabourey Sidibe, Precious because I was moved more by her performance.

    I think that Streep’s nomination was one of her weaker efforts and the split in storyline between Streep and Adams did not help Streep.

    I didn’t like “The Blindside” BUT I have to admited Sandra was pretty good (just not good enough to win but by that time everyone knew it was between her and Streep so it wasn’t a surprise).

    Mirren was good but in the end it was a forgetable movie. Same for Mulligan. Sidibe was good but that movie was all Monique. She was the best  in that movie. Streep was excellent and the movie was really good. Saying that, I disliked the duel storylines.

    I know I usually hate career wins, but in a year as poor as this where no one deserves to win, I think they’re the only passable scenario in a year like this. That’s why I’d choose Streep, I clicked Mulligan by mistake though.

    Sandy Bullock was diabolical!

    What a mixed bag of a list. I don’t get the massive praise Sidibe received….she was good, but I didn’t view her as deserving to win an Oscar.

    Helen Mirren was solid at best.

    Sandra Bullock gaining traction for this movie is still one of the most baffling events I think I have witnessed since I started getting invested in the awards season in the late 90s. I don’t hate her as an actress and think she was very good in GRAVITY but this performance was just…there.

    For me, it comes down between Streep and Mulligan.

    I think Julie & Julia was entertaining fluff. It wasn’t superb but it was an easy and breezy watch and whenever Streep was onscreen, I had a smile on my face.

    Mulligan gave a performance that you kind of had to look for. It was very natural but also very compelling to me….and I think her film, despite getting a Best Picture nomination, was quite underrated.

    Carey Mulligan is my choice.
