    Happy New Year guys!! The movie year of 2020 is going to be SO great!

    I have a question. Cate Blanchett was marvelous in Carol. She was nominated for an Oscar in the best actress category with:

    Brie Larson
    Jennifer Lawrence
    Charlotte Rampling
    Saoirse Ronan

    I have the feeling that Blanchett was really close to win this. What do you guys think?

    I thought she had the second best performance right after rampling and she most likely would have won had she not one for blue jasmine 2 years earlier, the biggest thing that upset me was the that masterpiece of a film wasn’t nominated for best picture

    I absolutely LOVE Carol. One of my favorite movies of all time. Im SO SO pissed the movie and Todd Haynes didn’t get a BP and BD nomination. But tbh I don’t think she was second. I actually think she was 3rd. I think Saoirse was 2nd. The fact that Brooklyn got into BP and Blanchett had just won her 2nd makes me think Saoirse had more support. But IMO Larson, Ronan, Blanchett and Rampling gave masterful performances and were all deserving of the win.

    She was very good in it. Her Blue Jasmine victory stopped her from winning

    She was fantastic. One of my favorite performances of the decade. She would have won if it wasn’t for Blue Jasmine

    I totally agree! Carol should have and deserved to be nominated for Best Picture.

    She should have won in that company but lost to Rooney Mara in reality. The two of them had the best performances that year (male or female) and it is a f*cking crime that Carol didn’t win any Oscars.

    Darling, you’re talking about Goddess Blanchett. Of course she was great. Lesbian Blanchett was a marvelous, classy performance and one of her best. Nuanced Lesbian Mara was even better, but they tried to pretend she was supporting. What a fraud. Anyway, Classy Lesbians should have been nominated for Best Picture and Director. Thatcher was angry about that.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    She is overrated in Carol and so is the film. I think the top two was definitely Larson and Ronan. Maybe Rampling had some passion votes so Blanchett could be third or fourth. Lawrence was lucky to be nominated.

    She gave a great, delicate and austere performance, like you’re looking at her through glass in public as she carries herself with the performative barrier necessary for a housewife and mother of that class in that era, with all that she’s previously been through, until she lets her guard down in the more intimate company of someone she cares for.

    Probably was always going to be too subtly interesting and layered for the basics in the Academy to properly appreciate, just like the film itself was. I would also wager that Ronan was second given the BP nomination for the film practically on her shoulders alone, and I would guess Rampling had enough of a narrative as the veteran legend finally getting the recognition she deserves to be third. I would hope that Cate at least got more votes than Lawrence in Joy (yikes at that nomination).

    I think it went like this:

    1. Larson

    2. Ronan

    3. Blanchett

    4. Rampling

    5. Lawrence

    Ronan and Blanchett were probably fairly close to each other, but I’ll give the edge to Ronan since she was in a Best Picture nominee, and unlike Blanchett, she didn’t win only a few years ago. I think Blanchett would’ve been a lot closer to winning if she hadn’t won so recently. She might’ve taken it otherwise. Both her and Ronan would’ve been very deserving winners, although I won’t deny that Larson was great in Room and deserved her award, even if I don’t like her as a person. Rampling had a critically acclaimed performance, but her film didn’t have the support to get her very close to winning. I’m guessing several voters thought the nomination was her reward. She was probably a somewhat distant 4th place. Lawrence was certainly dead last. She had won fairly recently, and her nomination was a seen by many as blatant name check since she was in a poorly received film where her actual notices weren’t anything too special. Not to mention, this was around the time when Lawrence’s backlash was really starting to catch on.

    Don’t know how Larson won over Ronan or Blanchett, or even Rampling for her histrionic performance. The “fucking sick dog” scene made me lol.

    After her comparatively subdued “Short Term 12” work, she was hungry for some scenery in “Room” and she ate like a person who’s been starved in the desert for ages. Funny thing is Barbrie wasn’t even the lead in the film, her younger co-star Jacob Tremblay was. He should have been the individual nominated from that film, not Barbrie.

    I would say she was third. Larson, Ronan, Blanchett, Lawrence and finally Rampling. She was definitely not going to win a third Oscar anytime soon for a movie that underperformed and missed BP, but to me she was 2nd best in the lineup behind Rampling.

    I think this is one of the best performances of the decade, however it was simply too close to her Blue Jasmine win for the academy to give her another one.

    I would have rather Blanchett, Ronan or Rampling won this year though. I also would have dropped Lawrence from the nominees and put Rooney Mara in lead where she deserved to be.

    Blanchett, Rampling and Ronan gave masterful performances. I think the nod for Lawrence in Joy was….not good

    If I could choose, I would have given the win to Rampling
