    Today, I count any one-episode one-hour long film in streaming sites as a movie.

    I’d just reiterate Behind the Candelabra and Game Change as my strong contenders.

    I think Moore would even be competitive for a win.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Vanessa Redgrave in Playing for Time would’ve given Sissy Spacek in Coal Miner’s Daughter a run for her money, even after that infamous “Zionist hoodlums” Oscar speech three years prior. It’s a Holocaust drama and Redgrave’s performance is more harrowing in many ways than Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice. Although I don’t like to think of Spacek without an Oscar.

    I don’t know if it would have happened at the Oscars, but Temple Grandin is a great film and Claire Danes and Catherine O’Hara are award worthy in it, especially Danes.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Behind the Candelabra was able to get some BAFTA nominations out of the blue.

    I believe it would’ve gotten Damon and Douglas nominated, plus Costumes, Production Design, possibly even Screenplay.

    Something I just wondered, if Prayers for Bobby is Oscar eligible, does that mean Signourey Weaver finally gets her little gold man over Bullock?

    I would hope that the quality of her performance along with the fact that she is so overdue would’ve propelled her to a win but the fact that Bullock was still able to pull it off with THAT performance in THAT movie over the work of those 4 ladies is simply incomprehensible.

    Weaver was fantastic in that and I think she would’ve been a worthy winner.

    Of the nominees, I would’ve voted for Mulligan.

    To further add to everything, I do feel like Julianne Moore would’ve been in it to win it for GAME CHANGE…especially considering she could’ve beat Jennifer Lawrence. I would’ve especially loved to see Sarah Paulson slip in for a Supporting nomination.

    I also think RECOUNT would’ve had a harder time but I wouldn’t have been surprised if Laura Dern gained more traction for that one. I think she could’ve been competitive considering Penelope Cruz crept in after they promoted Winslet to Lead.

    Judy Davis might very well be an Oscar winner had her version of Garland’s life hit the big screen. Of the nominees, she easily would’ve deserved it but in my opinion, she would’ve been in a close battle with the snubbed Naomi Watts for MULHOLLAND DRIVE.

    Speaking of the Judy Garland movie, I would’ve been thrilled at the idea of Blanchard winning in Supporting. To this day, she’s the one that I marvel at in particular and she was easily better than any of the Supporting nominees.

    I don’t think I saw anyone bring up ANGELS IN AMERICA. Granted that was technically a miniseries but I do wonder how it would’ve fared if they released MILLENNIUM APPROACHES and PERESTROIKA separately.

    Cicely Tyson won the Emmy in 1974 for The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. This was released in January 1974. Cicely would have definitely been nominated and it would have this one hell of a race.

    Ellen Burstyn – Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore – WINNER
    Diahann Carroll – Claudine
    Faye Dunaway – Chinatown
    Valerie Perrine – Lenny
    Gena Rowlands – A Woman Under the Influence

    Queen Latifah & Mo’Nique would be 2x Academy Award nominees because their performances in “Bessie”.

    I had a whole post written and I realized we’re excluded miniseries and Limited Series. Whoops.

    Anyway, Claire Danes for Temple Grandin would have made the 2011 Best Actress race so much better. It was already so sad they left off Kristin Dunst for Melancholia.
