    Kirsten Dunst, hands down. Definitely the best actor of her generation (or at least amongst). 3 decades of Oscar-worthy work. Not a single nod.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    The Power of the Dog / Jane Campion / Benedict Cumberbatch / Kristen Stewart / Kirsten Dunst / Troy Kotsur

    David Oyelowo, who’s a way better actor than Mahershala Ali.

    The fact that he didn’t get nominated for Selma so that Bradley Cooper in American Sniper could get in is a goddamn shame.

    She doesn’t really do much significant film work though.

    She doesn’t really do much significant film work though.

    She seems to be moving into film more now. She mentioned in an interview recently that she hadn’t been getting many film offers which is why she focused more on television and theatre but that after her appearance in The Crown she has started to get more film offers. She’s going to be the lead of a World War II drama from the director of Monster’s Ball this year.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    I still can’t believe how they looked over my girl Emily Blunt, who has never had a problem with the precursors (she even got a globe nom for Prada lmao.) – that SAG win or a Quiet Place still baffles me to this day.

    It’s odd how she always does well in precursors etc and it’s never for “bait-y” projects.

    The Devil Wears Prada – a summer comedy
    The Girl on the Train – panned thriller
    A Quiet Place – March horror
    Mary Poppins Returns – a musical remake

    Also nearly forgot Yahya Abdul-Mateen II

     

    On reflection, there’s a lot of supremely talented young black actors about to reshape the best actor/supporting actor race in the next few years. Hopefully starting with Daniel this year. I don’t feel up and coming black actresses are getting the same opportunities though. I have a bit of Zendaya fatigue already. Teyonah Parris I would like to see a lot more of.

    It could be the intersectional issues at play – Me too/times up helped opportunities for women, but disproportionately favoured white women, and the BLM/oscars so white seems to be disproportionately giving an opportunity bump to black men (all POC films/big roles this year are heavily male casting overall eg Ma Rainey, Da 5 Bluds, One Night in Miami, Judas and the Black Messiah). It seems in every effort black women are the ones being neglected in the industry.

    Considering the fact his film was so beloved, Sutherland’s snub for Ordinary People is one of the worst snubs of all-time.

    I was going to mention Donald Sutherland. I find it interesting that the academy never nominated any of his performances, but felt he was good enough to receive an honorary Oscar. A head scratcher.

    Life is a thin thread.
    We hang on tightly knowing
    it will snap one day.
