    Here we go for another round of love or loath. This time we have Judi Dench and her oscar winning 8 minutes of screentime in Shakespeare in Love. I personally dont like the movie but Dench however makes it worth watching for the few scenes she has alone. She own everything and everyone whenever shes in the room and you just cant take your eyes off of her. Truly deserving. What do you all think?

    She deserved her Oscar. She was brilliant, imo, and she is my favorite Queen Elizabeth on screen. I still need to watch Helen’s Mirren’s performance.

    Judi is one of the best actresses of all time so I’m glad she has an Oscar one way or another.

    love.

    Glourious scene-stealer and possibly the most memorable thing about this great movie. Love, love, love this win.

    She was the only good thing about that Weinstein trash. However, I personally think Kathy Bates in “Primary Colours” should have won for her unforgettable performance.

    FYC:

    Best Actress: Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
    Best Actor: Anthony Hopkins (The Father)
    Best Supporting Actress: Ellen Burstyn (Pieces of a Woman)
    Best Supporting Actor: Leslie Odom Jr. (One Night in Miami)

    Her win here is a double edged sword. It was a makeup for losing Best Actress the previous season. But voters never felt motivated to make her a contender for a sophomore win in the lead category. Especially since she was brilliant in Iris, Notes on a Scandal *her best, and Philomena.

    Plenty of regional critics groups agree plus Critics Choice and SAG.

    Irrelevant but she snapped in Notes on a Scandal.

    The best of her nominated work.

    Everyone agrees she should have an Oscar so no one is really loathing this victory that much.

    She was absolutely fantastic and thoroughly deserved the win, as did the film overall. It’s funny how the salty Saving Private Ryan fans are still upset about it.

    Loathe the movie (I go back and forth on it, but I am not a fan), but Judi Dench is great fun and deserving for making the movie better.

    I do not like this Oscars year – Saving Private Ryan is a film I think has done more harm than good to the history of war film, Elizabeth is a great Cate Blanchett performance structured around woeful historiography and writing, Life Is Beautiful’s audacious ambitions are not executed that well, and Shakespeare in Love is formulaic pap. In a year that had Pleasantville and The Truman Show, what a weak lineup.

    Love it. One of my favorite Oscar winners in supporting actress.

    Joan Allen should’ve won for Pleasantville. How wasn’t she even nominated?!

    Judi Dench was amazing in Shakespeare In Love and, in my opinion, the only good thing about that mediocrity. And considering she was absolutely robbed for Mrs. Brown, I can’t be mad about this win at all. Even though it’s not one of her most memorable perfomances. She also should’ve won for Notes On a Scandal (by far her best performance) but no one was stopping Helen Mirren that year. I think she was (probably) the runner-up.

    She was fine but I’d swap her win for Chocolat any day.

    FYC:

    Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
    Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
    Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)
