    Time for another round of lead or supporting. This time we have the fantastic Melanie Laurent for her beautiful turn in Inglourious Basterds. I think shes a lead along with Pitt and Waltz but I’m curious to to hear what you all think. I would also add that I think it’s a horrendous crime that she didnt get a nomination because not only would I have nominated her in Lead Actress but I would also give her the win.

    This is very interesting. I feel like, out of all the characters, Shoshanna/Emmanuelle had the most developed arc. But tbh I always saw Inglorious Basterds as (mostly) an ensemble movie and the characters being equally important for the development of the movie. So I would probably go with Supporting but Lead is just as plausible. I think it depends on your POV.

    Ensemble movie, all supporting. She should have been nominated too.

    I believe everyone is supporting in that film, but her and Waltz are the closest thing it has to leads. Still, my vote goes to supporting, where she should’ve been nominated.

    Was Brad Pitt submitted as a lead? I wouldn’t put him there, but I can imagine that the studio did since he was the biggest name and billed first.

    Yea I’m ok with her being supporting since it is such an ensemble movie, but I agree with above poster that Shoshanna definitely has the most developed arc, she’s the character that goes through the journey we generally associate with the protagonist. So even if she doesn’t have the most screen time, she sort of feels lead to me. And I would have given her a nomination in lead.

    I’d say she is the one lead of the film.

    Lead, easily. She, along with Pitt and Waltz, are the cores of the narrative(s).

    I thought everybody in that movie was a supporting player.

    I just love movies. And awards.
