Last round it was Rooney Mara for Carol so I thought it would only be fair to take Vikander and her placement to task as well considering she won the Oscar over Mara for what in my opinion was a leading performance. What do you all think was she lead or supporting and was he deserving of her win?ReplyApril 15, 2020 at 10:38 am #1203428304This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.

She’s co-lead. For a supporting actress Oscar winner, she has the 3rd longest screentime in Oscar history (59:37). While Redmayne has approximately 20 more minutes screentime than Vikander which could maybe be the only argument someone could make for her being supporting, the movie is essentially the two of them together and her role in the plot and screentime feels much more co-lead than simply a supporting character.ReplyCopy URLApril 15, 2020 at 11:29 am #1203428408This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.

The film is about Eddie’s transition and Alicia’s storyline changes depending on Eddie’s character. She doesn’t have her own thing on the film to be considered a lead. Having 20 less minutes is not the only argument that could be made about her placement.
To me the story is not solely Eddie’s transition but their love story. –

Co-lead in the same way Felicity Jones was a co-lead in Redmayne’s previous film, The Theory of Everything.ReplyCopy URL

Definitely a co-lead. She should have won for Ex Machina.ReplyCopy URL

She was a co-lead, and IMO there was nothing borderline supporting about her role.
The Danish Girl is just as much about Lili’s transition, as it is about Gerde’s experience, and their marriage overall. Sure, the movie’s title references Lili and her transition propels the plot, but Gerde was just as much of a fully realized character with a full emotional journey arc, and she had bountiful screen time on top of that.
Her supporting campaign was a completely strategic and consciously fraudulent move to boost her winning chances, because Lead Actress was Larson’s to lose that year.ReplyCopy URLNot now
