    In terms of worthiness, that is.

    NOTE: must be from the same category.

    So for example, does Allison Janney give a more Oscar worthy performance than Viola Davis?

    Please feel free to discuss.

    For the four main acting categories: I haven’t seen Janney yet, but I doubt she is better than Davis. I would have given Affleck the Oscar over Oldman, not sure about Chalamet though Stone was far from the best in her category, even though I think people are too harsh on her win, but I think she is lesser than the three out of the recurring five contenders (Streep, Ronan, McDormand, Hawkins, Robbie) I’ve seen (haven’t seen Streep and Robbie) Ali is better than Dafoe IMO, not sure about Rockwell though. I will probably have to watch all three films again to have a more clear answer.

    On Janney and Davis, that was purely for comparison’s sake, not to be punitive to Davis. Davis is frankly something else compared to Janney, and I loved Janney in her film.
    On Affleck and Oldman and Chalamet, that’s fair enough. I’d probably tie Affleck and the latter tbh, they are both great in their own way.

    Last year, at least in my opinion, the best category was Supporting Actress and the worst was Supporting Actor (I saw all performances except Isabelle Huppert). This year, Best Actress seems to be the best although I have barely seen any performances. I don’t know which category is the weakest… maybe Supporting Actress?
