    What a weird year…my brain says Colman, my heart says Aparicio. The last two are pretty interchangeable. Close gave me about half of what I needed out of that performance, and Gaga gave me what I needed in one sense, and didn’t in another lol.

    Aparicio
    Colman
    McCarthy
    Close
    Gaga

    Personally, I wish it looked like this:

    1. Kim Min-hee, The Day After
    2. Juliette Binoche, Let the Sunshine In
    3. Regina Hall, Support the Girls
    4. Emily Browning, Golden Exits
    5. either Helena Howard in Madeline’s Madeline or Isabelle Huppert in Mrs. Hyde

    I’m really surprised that people on GoldDerby hate Aparicio’s performance. I thought it was delicate and beautiful. However, McCarthy gave the performance of her career and really should have gotten a lot more recognition.

    1. McCarthy

    2. Aparicio

    3. Close

    4. Colman

    5. Gaga

     

    My personal line up would have been:

    1. Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    2. Carey Mulligan, Wildfire

    3. Toni Collete, Hereditary

    4. Yalitza Aparicio, Roma

    5. Amandla Stenberg, The Hate U Give

    Aparicio was good in Roma; she was very reactive and open and went about her business, and it is an effortless performance in the most beautiful way. Cuarón used Aparicio really well. Often times the main action is unfolding around Aparicio, like in this scene of her walking down the street, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yP8yZL51BwM She herself doesn’t really do a lot in the scene. She simply crosses the street. But she is completely living it, which is a lot easier said than done of course. She’s at ease. Throughout the whole film, Aparicio is used beautifully well by Cuarón. Stylistically, it all comes together immaculately. But given that her role requires little doing and much reacting, I would argue that it is in many ways less of a challenge than Queen Anne, and Close’s and Collette’s characters, among others.

    So I think a lot of times people are dismissive of Aparicio’s performance because she didn’t have much to do other than be herself as fully as she could. But that doesn’t mean her performance is any lesser because of that. This distinction is important. Although there are definitely some weaker moments. I think the stillbirth isn’t exactly an honest reaction.

    People hating on Yalitza’s performance maybe because it was too subtle for their taste. But for me, her work in Roma were beautifully heartbreaking, complex, and haunting.

    My predicted lineup that year:

    Glenn Close, The Wife

    Yalitza Aparicio, Roma

    Olivia Colman, The Favourite

    Toni Collette, Hereditary

    Lady Gaga, A Star Is Born

    Aparicio was definitely the worst nominee.  It didn’t help that Roma was extremely mediocre and self contemplating.

    Roma showed me how much I was getting tired of the B&W long take gimmick, the film was all about that. If Yalitza deserved to be nominated, then JDW should be in for Tenet, they’re just props in the film, the laziest way of “acting” you can get. Anyway, Olivia rightfully won Best Actress over Glenn and the rest.

    1. McCarthy – Usually not a big fan but damn she was good!
    2. Colman – Really Supporting but whatevs…sis deserves her Oscar
    3. Gaga – The most iconic performance of the line up.
    4. Aparicio – Hopefully we see more of her. She was really effective.
    5. Close – I HATED The Wife! So glad she lost for this terrible movie.

    Oh yes, Regina Hall was excellent. Diane was a contender this past year, though
