The BFCA/SAG/GG/BAFTA club.
Tilda Swinton in 2012 and Marion Cotillard in 2013 are the only actresses to hit almost every percursor awards, including the major ones BFCA/SAG/GG/BAFTA and not receiving an Oscar nomination, for their roles in We Nedd to Talk About Kevin and Rust and Bone, respectively.
Curiously, the two won an Oscar on their first and only nomination, in 2007 (Tilda for Best Supporting Actress in Michael Clayton and Marion for Best Actress in La Vie en Rose) and in my opinion both have had a post-Oscar career filled with snubs (Tilda in Julia and Marion in Nine, for example)
So, the question is: who, out of the two, deserved that nod the most? Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin on Marion Cotillard in Rust and Bone?January 22, 2013 at 8:08 am #541698
Why reduce their lack of post win appreciation with a pitting them against each other thread?January 22, 2013 at 8:24 am #541699
Swinton was ROBBED for We Need to Talk About Kevin. She should have replaced Williams. I still don’t get how she missed out, that movie and performance still haunt me today and it ranks as one of my favorite female performances of the decade.
Also you might want to retitle your post with the correct spelling of Worst.

Marion Cotillard.January 22, 2013 at 8:56 am #541701
Hard to say, both were absolutely tremendous performances. I will say Marion was snubbed in favor of performances that were just as strong as hers. Tilda had no business being snubbed in favor of the likes of Williams and Close, so I’ll say Tilda was more snubbed.January 22, 2013 at 8:59 am #541702

That’s a really good point. Can someone please tell me how Close got nominated?January 22, 2013 at 9:06 am #541703
I wouldn’t have nominated either. Weisz was the most worthy odd woman out this year. I preferred Kristen Wiig and Kirsten Dunst last year. Swinton did the best she could, but I thought the movie was borderline unwatchable. Also, Williams should have won last year.January 22, 2013 at 9:38 am #541704
Can someone please tell me how Close got nominated?
She’s Glenn Close.January 22, 2013 at 12:31 pm #541705
Both are stellar and won on the same night but somehow weren’t able to return as nominees despite multiple performances proving their talents again and again. Certainly “We Need To Talk About Kevin” and “Rust and Bone” were their respective post-Oscar peaks and they should be included in the Oscar line-up. I refuse to choose between them.January 22, 2013 at 1:00 pm #541706
Both films are difficult to watch for different reasons.. Its possible that the 60yo+ Academy voters just couldn’t finish their screeners with dozens piling up. I pick Swinton. I think she might be the greatest currently working.January 22, 2013 at 1:16 pm #541707
Have you ever even seen Albert Nobbs? Close deserved her nomination.
anyway……. Tilda gets my voteJanuary 24, 2013 at 1:46 pm #541708

Haha, Glenn Close needs an Oscar.
I voted for Tilda Swinton, but I don’t feel comfortable kicking anybody out lol. Can we move Viola Davis to supporting and bump out Berenice Bejo? I’m fine with that.
