Which performance in a movie directed my Quentin Tarantino should have been nominated for an Oscar, but alas was not?
My vote goes to Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, specifically Vol. 2.
Originally, I was leaning toward Pam Grier, but I ended up going with Uma, who likely should’ve been nominated for both years (though I suppose Part 2 in particular if I had to choose).
I went with Pam Grier because that’s one of the most powerful and simply greatest kick-ass performances of a black actress I’ve EVER seen.
I went with DiCaprio for DJANGO. Love Waltz, but I still think Leo was the best player in that film. Pam Grier gets my runner-up vote.
I haven’t seen some of those movies but of the ones I have seen definitely Melanie Laurent for Inglorious Basterds she was awesome
leonardo dicaprio for django is my pick but brad pitt should have been nominted for basterds
Pam Grier, Uma Thurman (Vol. 1), Diane Kruger, Melanie Laurent, and Daryl Hannah (Vol. 2)
I voted for Melanie Laurent but Leonardo DiCaprio and the unlisted Vhing Rhames in “Pulp Fiction” also seem very deserving.
They’re all great but I went off the menu and voted for Kurt Russell in Death Proof. Here’s a guy who’s been working since before I was born and is entirely under appreciated imo. He can do comedy, drama, and action films with equal gusto. I wanted to give him props.
