    Not so good film aside, Saoirse Ronan‘s performance in “The Lovely Bones” is gold and one of my favorite performances by a younger actress, ever.

    I do think she deserved an Oscar nomination for it: she has earned two of the big awards nominations, a BAFTA nomination and a BFCA nomination for Best Actress. What do you think, she was close for another Oscar nomination as Susie Salmon?

    2010 Best Actress Countdown
    BFCA: Sandra Bullock (won – tie); Meryl Streep (won – tie); Emily Blunt; Carey Mulligan; Saoirse Ronan; Gabourey Sidibe.
    BAFTA: Carey Mulligan (won); Saoirse Ronan; Gabourey Sidibe; Meryl Streep; Audrey Tautou.
    SAG: Sandra Bullock (won); Helen Mirren; Carey Mulligan; Gabourey Sidibe; Meryl Streep.
    GG DRAMA: Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side – won); Emily Blunt; Helen Mirren; Carey Mulligan; Gabourey Sidibe.
    GG COMEDY: Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia – won); Sandra Bullock (The Proposal); Marion Cotillard; Julia Roberts; Meryl Streep (It’s Complicated).
    LAFCA: Yolande Moreau.
    NYFCC: Meryl Streep.
    NBR: Carey Mulligan.
    NSFC: Yolande Moreau.

    So I think we can pretty much say that all Bullock; Sidibe; Mulligan and Streep were lock for the nomination. But I think for the fifth spot, three women – Mirren; Blunt and Ronan – were fighting to make the cut.

    I think Ronan was 6th, Blunt 7th.

    What do you think? Discuss.

    I think with a globe nod she would have not only been nominated but ahead of Blunt, but she did not so I think she was 7th.

    7th, but a bit distant in 7th.
    There were already 20somethings Sidibe and Mulligan in, and she was in her mid-teens. I think 20something Blunt in an Important Biopic and who had been buzzed without a nom previously for Prada was way more likely.

    Blunt was definitely ahead- Ronan would have been a highly surprising nominee had she been nominated.  It was Blunt vs Mirren for that last slot for sure. Ronan must have been a very distant seventh.

    So, then? Who was close?

    She got a BAFTA and a CRITICS CHOICE nomination. Blunt got a GOLDEN GLOBE and a CRITICS CHOICE nomination. So based on the big awards she was either 6th or 7th, but as BAFTA voters are actually voting on the Oscars, unlike GG voters, I think she was 6th.

    Yeah we know who the top five were. But I really doubt she wasn’t close at all. She was definitely in Top 7.
