    What do you guys think of Fairuza Balk’s performance in The Craft?

    I honestly feel like she should have been in competition for an Oscar with that tour de force performance. I do know that category placement might be confusing as the story was more-so Sarah’s (Robin Tunney) but Balk did have top billing it seems. She was incredible. No one else could have played Nancy like she did.

    Had the film been released today, I think she would sweep the Best Supporting Actress category.

    If the film were in contention today, she would definitely be snubbed. The Academy has a bias against horror films and performances. (i.e. Lupita Nyong’o in Us, Toni Collette in Hereditary)

    I do agree that Fairuza was sensational. She’d definitely make my list of best performances of that year. It’s an iconic portrayal. One of the best cinematic witches ever!

    She was my 2nd best female performance of that year behind Emily Watson for Breaking The Waves.
