    No, I don’t believe it was a snub. She wasn’t scoring with the other major awards either, so I don’t see a reason for the Academy to go for her.

    The real snub for that category that year was Kidman. She would’ve been a worthy substitute for either Sarandon, Stone, or Streep.

    In fact, let me go further and say that either Kidman, Thompson, or Shue would’ve made a worthy substitute winner for Sarandon.

    Oh, Stone is absolutely sensational in Casino. I actually consider Thompson the category’s weak link.

    This was such a great year for female performances even though Whoopi Goldberg made a joke about how three of the female nominees across Lead and Supporting got nominated for “playing a hooker” and then asked how many times did Charlie Sheen get to vote? Nothing wrong with playing prostitutes though.

    Bates was THE best if the year, but Oscar’s are so much more than performances.

    I would have snubbed Emma Thompson.

    This year I stan: Taron Egerton for Rocketman / Brad Pitt, Margaret Qualley and Dakota Fanning for OUATIH (so far)

    She didn’t need an acting nod with her screenwriting one.

    I’m fine with Susan getting her overdue in the category.

    A very competitive year for actresses. By the time Oscar voting was underway there were probably 7 strong possibilities vying for 5 spots (Kidman, Leigh, Sarandon, Shue, Stone, Streep & Thompson).

    Kathy Bates & Julianne Moore never had a chance in such a strong year appearing in films that underperformed and didn’t attract the buzz or awards attention that the other seven did.

    With the nominated actresses I would have dumped Stone down to supporting where she belonged and nominated Jennifer Jason Leigh for Georgia.

    However, out of those nine performances I would have selected Bates, Leigh, Moore, Sarandon & Shue for the final 5 nominees. I certainly don’t begrudge Streep & Thompson their nominations though. Ditto Stone, though she belongs in supporting.

    I’ve always loved Caliborne and all the performances in it. I don’t know why it flew under the radar and was generally ignored.

    I didn’t know it was restructured after bad test screenings. I love the editing and structure as it is now. I wonder how it was different.

    The studio likely wanted a Best Picture player and not simply an acting vehicle for its star. When the movie scored poorly with test audiences they re-shot the ending and moved the release date to the beginning of the year as a commercial play.

    I think it was just one of those films that failed to capture the attention of the movie audiences and failed to capture the buzz of awards season. It was a very dense year that year and so many movies were vying for awards attention. During the critics vote, it was written that some people were wondering why Dead Man Walking was missing from many of the critics’ choices after giving it very high reviews and noting Sean Penn and Sarandon and Robbins’ direction as being standouts in the year. Some suggested that it was highly congested and the critics decided to go ahead and make their picks early before many of them saw Dead Man Walking.

    Jennifer Jason Leigh won the New York Film Critics award that year for Georgia. She was in the running but the film was so little seen.

    Marie Winningham in many respects was lucky to get nominated though she was easily gave the best performance of the nominees.

    I’d definitely keep Streep. She would have been my runner up.

    Streep’s my pick for the win though, beyond the Oscar nominees, Bates would top her.

    I want Bates to work with David O Russell so badly. She has a Melissa Leo in The Fighter ham fest waiting to sweep award season. Bates for Oscar two.
