    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!

    Her performance in Hunger Games and Catching Fire is better than all of her Oscar-nominated performances and better than her win.

    2018 Actress nominees? Let’s go.

    This is my personal top 5.

    1. Toni Collette – Hereditary
    2. Nicole Kidman – Destroyer
    3. Rosamund Pike – A Private War
    4. Yalitza Aparicio – Roma
    5. Melissa McCarthy – Can You Ever Forgive Me?

    I also liked the performances of:

    Sandra Bullock – Bird Box
    Julia Roberts – Ben Is Back
    Glenn Close – The Wife
    Sofia Gala Castiglione – Alanis
    Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie – Leave No Trace

    2018 was by far the strongest year in recent history for lead actress performances. Probably the strongest year ever. You could probably make a list of at least 20 solid performances from that year.

    Insane year for lead actress performances and somehow the worst performance, Yalitza got nominated. Terrible decision.

    The 2011 lineup was so horrible. Neither should have been nominated but I would have awarded Rooney over everyone else (who was a somewhat surprise nominee that year). Any ways, here are PERSONAL my 1990’s winners:

    1990 – Kathy Bates (Misery)
    1991 – Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs)
    1992 – Emma Thompson (Howards End)
    1993 – Angela Bassett (What’s Love Got To Do With It)
    1994 – Kathleen Turner (Serial Mom)
    1995 – Kathy Bates (Dolores Claiborne)
    1996 – Emily Watson (Breaking The Waves)
    1997 – Pam Grier (Jackie Brown)
    1998 – Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth)
    1999 – Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry)

    How did the “overdue” narrative help women like Streep and Julianne Moore but failed when it came to Close?

    Streep beat Close in 2011. Imagine, losing for a 6th time to a woman who just won her 3rd Oscar.

    Interesting list. I see you put Peggy Ashcroft in lead. Who would you give the supporting actress award to that year?

    Her performance in Hunger Games and Catching Fire is better than all of her Oscar-nominated performances and better than her win.

    Better than Winter’s Bone or mother! ?

    To be honest, me moving Ashcroft to Lead was kind of abrupt and I could end up changing it the more I think about that year. For Supporting, I’m leaning towards Nastassja Kinski for PARIS, TEXAS…granted that’s based on haven’t seeing the film in several years so that could change as well.

    The Close vs Colman race really should’ve taken place that year. It should’ve been Close in Albert Nobbs vs Colman in Tyrannosaur.
