    She wasn’t my favorite that year (Sally was) and I didn’t like 3BB like that, yet I LOVED her performance. She totally deserved to win

    Mildred was such a refreshing character. Had men shook everywhere

    Perfectly serviceable McDormand doing the usual suppressed rage performance in a forgettable film that added nothing to the culture, but Robbie deserved.

    Darlings, the Prime Minister absolutely loathed it. What an offensive performance. A disgrace to humanity. Thank God she redeemed herself with Nomadland.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    The movie was mediocre but Frances has a lot of baity scenes in the film so I was indulging every time she showed up her on the screen. Kind of reminds me how I feel about Blacnhett’s tour de force in Blue Jasmine. Hated the film love the performance.

    I actually wouldn’t give any of the wins to Frances, while good, there were better performances both years! However she delivered one of the best performances of the decade in any form in Olive Kitteridge so she deserves another decade of accolades

    She always plays different shades of the same character over and over again.

    Wildly overrated actress.

    Loved her and love her.

    She definitely deserved it. IMO, Robbie was a decent runner up.

    Good performance in a meh film. I think Robbie gave a more interesting and memorable performance (albeit in a meh film too) so I would have given her the win (haven’t seen Hawkins).

    In a way I do love this win because her acceptance speech gave us this iconic gif:

    While I would’ve given Frances the win that year if I was an Academy member, Sally Hawkins’ work in The Shape of Water is very close for me. The latter should have easily won the Golden Globe and BAFTA given that on paper, you’d think the more international awards groups would go for a Brit like her. Whether I agree with the person sweeping an entire awards season or not, I do very much prefer having races going into Oscar night instead of just having the winners set in stone beforehand.

    I thought it was a good performance, but in my eyes no where near Hawkins.

    Voted loathe, don’t actually loathe. She’s a great actress, the movie’s decent, I just thought her casting was a little on the nose (similar to Casey Affleck in “Manchester by the Sea”, though that one was worse). Of everyone nominated that year, Sally Hawkins definitely should’ve won. How the hell do you give “The Shape of Water” Best Picture, and not give her Best Actress?

    Probably the best performance of the decade, and one of my favorites ever. She has more great scenes in this than most actors in their entire career. I still get chills in the fire extinguisher scene every single time.

    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Original Screenplay
