So in the first entry in the poll series where I delve into the Best Supporting Actor category in 2012, Leonardo DiCaprio is by far and away your winner for Django Unchained. For the second entry, I’m going right into the Best Actress category in 2014. Now some of these contenders were longshots, but were still in the conversation at least. Also, even though The Babadook was ineligible, I still put Essie Davis on here in case you guys want to create some justice.
My personal pick is Jenny Slate for Obvious Child. But how about you guys?January 27, 2016 at 8:32 am #213253This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.January 27, 2016 at 8:38 am #213254
Kristen Wiig for The Skeleton Twins was my favorite performance of the year but from the list it is a close tie between Slate and Davis. They both tied for 2nd place for me last yearJanuary 27, 2016 at 8:58 am #213255
I don’t know that this was the strongest year for this category, especially not compared to this year or the year before it. Pike, Moore and Cotillard all absolutely deserve to be there, Witherspoon was very good in her role but would have been left out in a stronger year, and Jones was the obvious fifth, and I would have replaced her with Davis had she been eligible. The Babadook is one of the best horror movies I’ve ever seen, and her performance carries it.January 27, 2016 at 8:59 am #213256
If you dare not to vote for her…

Gugu Mbatha-RawJanuary 27, 2016 at 9:28 am #213258
Gugu’s one-two punch of “Belle” and “Beyond the Lights,” bitches! No reason for Felicity Jones wasting space with all of these women available to take her place. Also wanted to mention Marion Cotillard’s equally brilliant performance in “The Immigrant” from this year. Voted for Gugu’s “Belle” from the available options.January 27, 2016 at 9:50 am #213259
TBH all of the nominees deserved to be there. Cotillard, Pike, Moore, and Witherspoon gave winning performances. I would have replaced Felicity with Swank or Davis but she was still nominee worthy.January 27, 2016 at 10:01 am #213260
Essie Davis easily, but unfortunately The Babadook was not eligible. Other than that, I’d go for ScarJo’s career best work in Under the Skin – a largely silent performance which makes a great double bill with her exclusively vocal performance in Her.January 27, 2016 at 10:45 am #213261
Hmm I’m not terribly fond about any of those performances. I guess Davis, even though I consider “The Babadook” wildly overpraised.January 27, 2016 at 11:35 am #213262
The Babadook also should have been nominated for sound.January 27, 2016 at 11:40 am #213263
ESSIE MOTHERFUCKING DAVISJanuary 27, 2016 at 11:43 am #213264
Sarah Snook for Predestination.January 27, 2016 at 1:06 pm #213265
Emily Blunt and Jennifer Aniston both should have made it in my opinion.
