    It was a travesty when Swinton was snubbed for Kevin but I have to say Reese Witherspoon is a powerhouse in Election, and she also deserved an Oscar nom for that. Matthew Broderick also deserved a best actor nod for the same movie.

    I’m always torn between Sally Hawkins and Pam Grier. Voted for Sally this time.
    Poppy might be the most optimistic film character ever been, but it was “too happy” for the Academy I guess.
    Contrary is We need to talk about Kevin. That was definitely too dark for them.

    3 Way tie. Resse Witherspoon, Emma Thompson, and Tilda Swinton. Also I would like to add Marion Cotillard in Nine, Laura Dern in Citizen Ruth, and Scarlett Johanson in Don Jon

    I´m so torn! My instinct goes with Bjork, but then I think of Swinton…..Those are definitely my top 2, along Dunst (melancholia)…

    Pam Grier is a travesty, but not the biggest

    Sally Hawkins should have definitely been nominated for Happy go Lucky, however i voted for Bjork here. Only because i think Bjork gave one of the best performances of all time.

    I went with Sally Hawkins, but tomorrow it could be Bjork, then Tilda, then Pam.

    THANK YOU!

    I think the four I bolded ARE THE MOST SNUBBED actresses in their times.

    For Ingrid Bergman, I think they should let her have two nominations and move out Greer Garson.

    For Audrey Hepburn, I couldn’t believe my eyes! If Julie Andrews reprised her role for My Fair Lady, I thinks she WOULD get a nomination and WIN, but then she won for Mary Poppins.

    Sally Field was WAY BETTER than some actresses nominated, but not Tandy (sorry, I LOVE Driving Miss Daisy).

    And Robin Wright! They lost out to this nomination but awarded it to Tom Hanks, ugh!

    The most recent BLOW-OUTs I think are Tilda Swinton for We Need To Talk About Kevin and almost EVERY  OTHER ACTRESS EVERY YEAR!

    i have always thought that Reese Witherspoon in ELECTION was one of the best performances ever.  and it should have gotten a nomination.  i think her performance in Walk The Line was NOT oscar worthy in the least.  Election should be Reese’s oscar winning role
