    Hands down, I’m tired of people treating Diaz like crap. She has hell of a good performances, and although lately she’s been in trash films, giving awful performances, she was pretty good in many of her movies including “Vanilla Sky” “My Sister’s Keeper” “There is Something About Mary” “Gans of New York” or “Being John Malkovich”.

    Keener is so boring in everything that I really don’t understand her Oscar nomination over Diaz.

    Tough decision. But if I were forced to choose, I would say Keener. It was a tough year for supporting actresses that year imo. But here is what my lineup would look like (subject to change):

    Thora Birch, American Beauty
    Helena Bonham Carter, Fight Club (WINNER)
    Cameron Diaz, Being John Malkovich
    Catherine Keener, Being John Malkovich (runner-up)
    Chloe Sevigny, Boys Don’t Cry

    Cameron Diaz. Not only this was totally different from usual roles (deglam!), but it was simply great acted and I wished she had gotten an Oscar nomination for it.

    Diaz easily. I don’t even remember Keenan in it but Cameron was a revelation.

    I sat through the first half of the film thinking how good Amy Brenneman and wondering when Cameron was going to show up.

    I’ve said it before (And I’ll say it again) but she should have aboiut 5/6 noms by now.

    I understand that a few Diaz performances have been somewhat underappreciated. But come on now.

    BJM is one of my favorite from the 90’s. And I wouldn’t have minded seeing both women nominated. But let’s not completely dismiss Keener’s wonderfully dry performance in order to praise Diaz.

    Yes, Razzie nominations…I’m kidding of course, Cameron can be excellent when she wants to be, and charming when she doesn’t even try

    I loved both, and both are deserving of nominations. Overall, I went with Keener because she was the funniest and most entertaining IMO

    I am a heavy critic on Diaz’s work but this was a knock out performance. It was the best supporting actress performance on 1999

    Keener was incredible, and gets my vote. Diaz is certainly very good, though.

    Hope Sasha chimes in.

    The casting of Diaz in her wacky role is inspired, but Keener’s performance is more incisive as the sort of person I can’t stand socially but who is brilliant and hilarious in the context of a movie. She gets my vote.

    This thread has made me cry. It reminded me what a wonderful actress Cameron was during late nineties and early noughties. Oh, how do I miss those years!
    As for the question, well, they were both absolutely outstanding and bias aside I really have to go with my girl. She was absolutely everything in this role. I consider 1999 to be a great year for actresses, especially those playing supporting roles. I could name at least ten roles that would be absolutely worthy of nomination. It’s just the recent years that this particular category has become freaking stale.
    God, it’s such a shame that she was snubbed by Academy during her prime as a thespian because nowadays she doesn’t even stand a chance at getting nominated. And honestly, she just doesn’t care. I probably wouldn’t care too if I was given eight-figure salary for POS such as “Sex Tape”.
