    Woodard also should have been nominated for Best Actress with Crooklyn.

    She should be a 5 time nominee at this point!

    -Best Supporting Actress (Cross Creek)
    -Best Supporting Actress (Passion Fish)
    -Best Actress (Crooklyn)
    -Best Actress (Down in the Delta)
    -Best Actress (Clemency) WON

    One of the most talented actresses of all-time.

    Her guest appearances on L.A. Law (which won her an Emmy) are just astounding acting.

    Alfre’s appearance on L.A.Law was amazing and one of my favorite wins.

    This year Oscar were boring. That impersonation, seizure like performance by Renee Zellweger won and that awful acting in Harriet got nominated instead Alfre Woodard in Clemency. The lineup would be better if :

    Awkwafina, The Farewell

    Alfre Woodard, Clemency

    Cho Yeo Jeong, Parasite

    Scarlett Johansson, Marriage Story

    Florence Pugh, Midsommar

    She is such a fantastic actress. I agree that she was snubbed of nominations for PASSION FISH, CROOKLYN, and CLEMENCY.

    @GALAXY98: LOVE your list!! Though I would’ve nominated Cho in Supporting and given her the win there.

    My list is as follows:

    Awkwafina, THE FAREWELL
    Adele Haenel, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE
    Lupita Nyong’o, US
    Florence Pugh, MIDSOMMAR
    Alfre Woodard, CLEMENCY

    Honestly I’m not sure who I’d give it to. Probably either Woodard or Nyong’o.

    It is hard to figure out what happened with Passion Fish. She was high up on the list of prospective nominees. The Academy saw the film since Mary McDonnell got in.

    Woodard did show up as a runner up at the LA Film critics award in lead so maybe that confused voters where she should be placed. Although just the year before LA gave Mercedes Ruehl Best Actress and she went on to win supporting almost everywhere else.

    I haven’t seen the movie in a long time. Not sure how long her screen time is and if she belonged in lead or supporting.

    It’s a co-lead role in Passion Fish and her campaign in supporting was wholly strategic. I blame either Tomei and Plowright because the other three nominees feel unmovable.

    I remember being surprised Redgrave got in. People love that performance but it never really did much for me. I didn’t think others would vote for her.

    Charlton Heston was open about denying Redgrave a vote because he was scared of what she might say were she to win. But he did like her performance.

    The race was obviously quite open, but taking all predictions in, people thought Redgrave was the most likely winner in a field where no nominee had a passionate group behind them. Richardson was liked by critics but I think the academy did not care for the movie very much.

    I do have to ask: was Tomei even considered a possibility as a nominee?

    It just seems so far out of left field….and then she won the damn thing.

    I feel like had the SAG Awards existed that year, she might have been the victor there.
