    Just because it came up in this year’s Best Actress thread, how would you rank the 2017 Best Actress race? For me: 1. Ronan 2. Hawkins 3. Robbie 4. McDormand 5. Streep

    Each of them were excellent:

    1. McDormand
    1. Robbie
    3. Hawkins
    4. Ronan
    5. Streep

    2017 was a great Best Actress line-up, and while Daniela Vega, Brooklyn Prince or Vicky Krieps would’ve made more inspired fifth nominees, this is my probably Meryl’s best performance this decade. Underrated and nuanced.

    1. Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird

    2. Sally Hawkins, The Shape of water.

    3. Margot Robbie, I Tonya.

    4. Frances McDormand, Three Billboards

    5. Meryl Streep, The Post.

    My Personal 2010s Winners:

    2010: Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone (what a lineup though, career best work from Nicole and Michelle!)

    2011: Kirsten Dunst, Melancholia (what a weak list of nominees and amazing list of possible noms with Swinton, Binoche, Colman and Theron.)

    2012: Emanuelle Riva, Amour.

    2013: Sandra Bullock, Gravity.

    2014: Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl.

    2015: Cate Blanchett, Carol.

    2016: Annette Bening, 20th Century Women.

    2017: Saoirse Ronan, Lady Bird.

    2018: Olivia Colman, The Favourite.

    2019: Alfre Woodard, Clemency.

    (2020: Frances McDormand, Nomadland)

    My Personal 2000s Winners

    2000: Ellen Burstyn, Requiem for a Dream (love Julia, but Ellen wins here because I don’t have her winning in the 70s over Sissy, Liv or Gena)

    2001: TIE – Naomi Watts, Mulholland Dr & Isabelle Huppert, The Piano Teacher*

    2002: Julianne Moore, Far From Heaven

    2003: Charlize Theron, Monster

    2004: Kate Winslet, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    2005: Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line (I don’t feel passionate about any possible nominees and I feel Teese is deserving of at least one. Ideally Swank could’ve won this year and then Reese could’ve won for Election in 1999 but alas…)

    2006: Helen Mirren, The Queen

    2007: Marion Cotillard, La Vie En Rose

    2008: Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky

    2009: Gabourey Sidibe, Precious.

    judy holliday deserved her win (and is one of the best best actress winners). she was LEAGUES ahead of bette davis and gloria swanson.

    I just watched Born Yesterday for the first time, and while I wouldn’t describe her as being ‘leagues ahead’ of Davis and Swanson, Holliday in many ways gives the most technically impressive and immersed characterisation of the three. (Playing the role on stage beforehand must have helped a great deal.) Her winning the Oscar might have been partly due to the transformative element of her vocal and physical mannerisms as Billie in contrast to her real self; both Davis and Swanson were often considered to be playing heightened versions of themselves.

    Considering we were talking about the 2018 lineup how about we rank the performances from that year we found to be top 10?

    My ranking:

    1. Carey Mulligan, Wildlife
    2. Olivia Colman, The Favourite
    3. Yalitza Aparicio, Roma
    4. Charlize Theron, Tully
    5. Viola Davis, Widows

    Honourable Mentions:

    6. Toni Collette, Hereditary
    7. Glenn Close, The Wife (she was excellent but the performances that got snubbed that year where out of this world)
    8. Rosamund Pike, A Private War
    9. Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns
    10. Melissa McCarthy, Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    2018 Actress nominees? Let’s go.

    1. Charlize Theron, Tully
    2. Viola Davis, Widows
    3. Olivia Colman, The Favourite
    4. Toni Collette, Hereditary
    5. Kiera Knightley, Colette

    6. Natalie Portman, Vox Lux (I actually dont know which she was campaigning)
    7. Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns
    8. Saoirse Ronan, Mary Queen Of Scots
    9. Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade
    10. Amandla Stenberg, The Hate U Give

     

    I also haven’t seen Roma so I’m not snubbing her I just don’t know what I think. Emily Blunt I would have preferred to say A Quiet Place but of course there was that supporting ridiculousness.

    Believe it or not, she campaigned supporting, although the HFPA overturned this and put her in lead contention. Of course in the end she barely got nominated anywhere in either category.

    Thank you! That’s strange to me, I mean I can understand that both leads are border but I think both should have just been campaigned in lead. It’s such a shame that film was slept on, how it didn’t even get song nods is beyond me.

    I’m going to drop a potentially controversial opinion here, I don’t know, but Katniss Everdeen should have been an oscar nominated role for Jennifer Lawrence. More than once. I rewatched The Hunger Games franchise semi-recently and she outacted most nominees from each of the years in those films. I assume it was blockbuster bias but she was deserving!
