    3/21: Meryl Streep, Doubt
    1/2: Angelina Jolie, Changeling (plus Jean Hersholt)
    1/2: Melissa Leo, Frozen River
    1/2: Anne Hathaway, Rachel Getting Married
    1/7: Kate Winslet, The Reader

    The race was between two overdue Oscar perennials. Ultimately being a win for the actress without an Oscar. But I can’t help but wonder had Winslet won earlier, Iris for example, Streep could have won here and we would not be stuck with that Iron Lady bullshit for a 3rd win.

    Had Winslet won for an earlier nomination I believe that she still could’ve won in 2008, but in a much closer race. Winslet won every award for this performance, and the academy went out of their way to nominate her in lead for this performance instead of Revolutionary Road. The overdue factor certainly helped but without the urgency to finally reward her Streep could’ve become a better alternative to finally reward, but I believe the result would’ve been the same.

    Winslet deservedly won but like you said, Streep would have won if Winslet wasn’t without an Oscar. Anyway, Winslet should have won at least two Oscars by now
