    James Stewart for Mr Smith goes to Washington instead of the Philadelphia Story Bogie for Casablanca instead of the African Queen

     

    Agree with James Stewart should have won for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

    I would be concerned for Jessica’s career then.

    I’ll pretend that Jessica won her Oscar for Scenes From A Marriage like Matthew McConaughey won for True Detective.

    I too did not think Jessica Chastain deserved the Oscar this past year. In my personal ranking of the 2021 Best Actress nominees, she’s fourth above Olivia Colman. The other three were superior with Kristen Stewart head and shoulders above everyone. Yet, Chastain somehow managed to steal the Oscar that had Stewart’s name engraved on it.

    Darling, there’s so many. Especially in the 2010s.

    Here’s the most baffling (and their most deserving role that goes Oscarless)

    Joaquin Phoenix for Depressed Clown (Her)

    Nicole Kidman for The Nose (Rabbit Hole or Dogville or The Northman)

    Meryl Streep for Thatcher of Goldderby (The Bridges of Madison County or A Cry In The Dark)

    Jessica Chastain for Tammy Faye’s Eyebrows (The Tree of Life or Interstellar)

    Ellen Burstyn for Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (this is such a good win, but The Exorcist or Requiem For A Dream is one for the ages)

    Leonardo DiCaprio for Bear Rape (Titanic or The Aviator)

    Jennifer Lawrence for O’Russell’s Overacting Vehicle (Mother!)

    Judi Dench for Weinstein In Love (Notes On A Scandal or Philomena)

    Laura Dern for Slutty Lawyer (Wild or Inland Empire)

    Jack Lemmon for Save The Tiger (The China Syndrome)

    Jane Fonda for Vietnam War Thing (Julia or The China Syndrome)

    Will Smith for Oscar Bait (nothing really)

    Al Pacino for Hoo-ah (The Godfather Part II or Dog Day Afternoon)

    Ingrid Bergman for 3 of her Oscars (Autumn Sonata)

    Kate Winslet for David Kross is Gorgeous (Titanic)

    FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

    Michelle Yeoh, Everything Everywhere All At Once
    Tang Wei, Decision To Leave
    Rebecca Hall, Resurrection

    James Hong & Jamie Lee Curtis, Everything Everywhere All At Once

    The Oscar: What they should have won for:

     

    This still pisses me off cause I love her so much, especially in these movies she was nominated for (in the exception of Revolutionary Road, her greatest performance to date 🙄).

    Winslet is so terrible in Revolutionary Road, if she had to win that year at least she won for a servicable performance.

    She should’ve won for Sense and Sensibility.

    What is really annoying with that “winning for the wrong role” is that it happens in 80 % of the time with the “long overdue” narrative (excuse my eventual mistakes, I’m french).

    It’s true about several comedians I adore (Al Pacino, James Stewart…).

    Most of the time they’re still great or really good in the movies that finally got them the little golden guy, but it’s very occasionnally for a very best work.

    The examples that pisse me off the most (all is relative, hugh, nobody died) are the next ones :

    – Marlon Brando, great in The Godfather, should have won years ago, a first time, for A Street Car Named Desire. Instead, in 1952, he lost the oscar to a growing old Humphrey Bogart for The African Queen, an excellent but far less subtle performance than his older ones.

    Al Pacino his the one that should have won for the Godfather (one of the very best male performances of all time, same about the second part). Especially when you know Brando refused his prize, and that Pacino won years after for a spectacular but not nuanced performance in Scent of a Woman, just because he had to win at the expense of Denzel Washington in Malcolm X or Robert Downey Jr in Chaplin.

    The worst of all in recent memory is Leo DiCaprio’s case !!! The guy has quite a resume, he has always been one of the greatest but I began, at the early 2010’s, to be bored by this serious face who needs recognition (his performances from the second half of the 2000’s – Revolutionary Road aside – are the only ones I found overrated).

    And then, bam : The Wolf of Wall Street comes out, and Leo gives his greatest performance to date, and one of the most memorable of the last 20 years !

    But, noooooo, he had to grumble, drool and freeze to get it ! 🙄
