    I really enjoyed her work until she started to get praised over Nicole Kidman, who was electrifying, sublime, and obviously more Emmy-worthy.

    Furthermore, mentioning her work in the same breath as Bryce Dallas Howard’s or Susan Sarandon’s is insane.

    She did absolutely nothing for the second half of the series, basically modeled the character after her own persona and failed at playing a person other than herself. She was so non-transformative, it was to the point of being obsolete.

    Sorry, not sorry.

    LOL I haven’t even SEEN Big Little Lies yet! I’m just doing this to troll Alex B. for his needlessly being a dick to my friend @Hunterbergfeld yesterday.

    My mom actually DID see Big Little Lies, and she told me that Nicole was the best of the cast, with Laura Dern her 2nd favorite.

    Watch the trailer for the new Resse Witherspoon movie, she plays the EXACT same character as her character in Big Little Lies, right down to the driving her kids around, the affair, her persona in general. Alex B, get a life, you over-obssessed STAN. This is your girl Reese, typecast just as she was in Big Little Lies:

    When I saw this thread I audibly sighed. Lol, glad to see you’re just trolling. As far as Big Little Lies is concerned, my list would be Kidman, Witherspoon, Woodley, Sarsgaard, Dern, Scott, Kravitz.

    There’s already a thread about Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. Where’s moderator? Who allows these countless threads about the same topic?

    BLL was among Witherspoon best work alongside Election, Walk The Line and Wild.

    She passed from being the true lead in the first three episodes to be a part of the ensemble, but she still delivered great scenes in the final two episodes.

    It was a complex, deep and impressive performance and she totally deserves the nomination she will get.

    With episode one also she could win, and I would be ok with it.

    This thread has no sense at all (there’s a BLL thread).

    Anyway my personal pick still would be Nicole and Reese should have lost the Oscar to Felicity Huffman…so I’m not a Witherspoon fanboy.

    LOL I was just trolling here, I haven’t actually SEEN Big Little Lies, although I stand by Reese Witherspoon playing the same damn character in mostly everything she does. Yell at Alex B., since he was being legit with his STANNING.

    Even if this is a troll post, I still agree. Reese Witherspoon cannot act. I’m still baffled at how she has an Oscar (other than her being popular at the time and in the weakest year ever for Best Actress). It’s gonna be fun seeing her losing face when Kidman wins over her. Hope it’s as good as the time she lost to Julianne Moore a few years ago.

    No matter what, Reese gave one of the best contemporary performances in Election. No one can take away that being one of the great snubs. She’s not super versatile, but she’s a natural, charming comedienne, and has been very good to great in a few projects. I don’t like her Oscar win, but it’s not like she has a bunch of undeserved awards and nominations like some people.

    You’re being too generous! Even Reese knows she isn’t getting nominated for an Emmy for Big Little Lies, unlike Nicole who could actually win!

    She’ll definitely win an Emmy for producing Big Little Lies.
