    I just rewatched this film last week. While I’m not a big fan of the movie overall, I do love Juliette Binchoche’s performance. My question is, why was she campaigned in Supporting? Honestly, it feels like she has more screen time than Fiennes and Scott-Thomas and Dafoe. She has all of her scenes caring for the patient and her own love story with Kip (Naveen Andrews). Also her scenes at the opening of the movie in the hospital and on the bus.

    Were people upset that she won Supporting for pretty much a leading role? It truly is a beautiful and powerful performance.

    It is somewhat odd that Binoche is billed before Scott-Thomas, yet the leading distinction is solely granted to Scott-Thomas.

    I have no evidence as to why they actually did this, but my guess would be that Binoche’s performance stood out more by a slight amount to critics and viewers and they wanted to spread the wealth. Neither of them would have been anywhere close to winning in Lead, so my guess is they gave it to Scott Thomas as the filler nom and pushed Binoche in Supporting since a win for her there would be more likely. Personally, I think they made the right choice; I don’t think Scott Thomas would have won Supporting and I don’t think both of them would have been nominated in the same category.
