    This is alongside Laura Dern’s nomination for Wild, in my opinion, one of the best surprise nominations last decade. She barely does anything, but everytime she’s on screen she elevates the whole thing. Earned nomination.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    This is where I’m at:

    She barely does anything

    I loathe this nomination. The film as a whole is massively overpraised. The performances were okay, but none of them were Oscar-caliber in my opinion. The other four nominees that year were well-deserved; the fifth nominee should have been Emma Watson for The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

    The whole movie is mediocre. She had no business in that line up.

    Loathe. She had no business being nominated for that. Her nomination for Animal Kingdom was definitely one of the best surprise nominations of that decade. But this one? No! Like you said, she barely does anything.

    I simply pressed ‘Results’ because I have basically no strong opinion of it; she does absolutely nothing wrong in a role where she has very little to do except remain level-headed amidst a household of frantic energy. With a few choice lines and reaction shots she gives us a sense of who this woman is, so kudos to members of the actors branch for recognising that I guess, although I’m not sure it’s enough to warrant a nomination. Isabelle Huppert deserved a slot for Amour but we all knew that wouldn’t happen.

    But I’ll take any opportunity to shout out Weaver’s Grandma Smurf in Animal Kingdom. My favourite supporting actress loser of the decade.

    She should’ve won for Animal Kingdom but this nomination was definitely not it.
    Ann Dowd for Compliance, Emma Watson for The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Judi Dench for Skyfall deserved way more recognition than Weaver.

    Nothing role. Nothing performance.

    I loved the movie back then (and I still like it. I mean… who doesn’t like a rom-com?), but Weaver’s performance is a nothing performance!
    I mean, Nicole Kidman got that atrocious snub for THE PAPERBOY, but Weaver got nominated…………

    I’d actually bump out Amy Adams. As good as she is in The Master, she didn’t have a whole lot to do nor did she have a big standout moment. A lot of that movie was more focused on Joaquin Phoenix’s character with Philip Seymour Hoffman having the more prominent supporting role. The other four Best Supporting Actress nominees that year to me had a lot more going for them. While Jackie Weaver may not have had a whole lot to do in Silver Linings Playbook (nor did she have a big standout scene either), I still thought she was great in the scenes that she did appear in and didn’t feel unworthy of the recognition at all. She had the most sane character in that whole movie.

    As much as I loved The Perks of Being a Wallflower, there weren’t really any performances that I felt were Oscar worthy. My personal choice for the fifth slot that year was actually Samantha Barks in Les Misérables. While Anne Hathaway certainly got all the (well-deserved) recognition for that movie, I do think Sam deserved some nominations as well for her performance as Éponine.

    I mean Anne Hathaway won that Oscar from the day the trailer dropped so this is moot…

    I would’ve preferred Maggie Smith in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or Judi Dench in Skyfall. Those were the only two who were actually contenders that I thought would’ve been better than Weaver. I think Kidman popping up would’ve been worse. Dowd was unfortunately never going to happen. I did like Watson as well, but again, was not going to happen!

    Couldn’t disagree more about Amy Adams. I thought the film brilliantly showcased how evil men like Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character do what they do because their wives often enable them or support them in what they do. Her character wasn’t some naive housewife who was clueless about her husband’s true nature. She knew exactly the kind of man her husband was, and in many ways, while her husband was the public face of The Cause, she was often its behind-the-scenes brains. She was the one who often had to persuade her husband to persuade Joaquin Phoenix’s character to either devote himself to The Cause, or leave and never return.

    Truly don’t understand the hatred this performance receives. Weaver breathes life into the character as best she can. She’s not even last in the category that year for me. I won’t ever get over anger for competent performances that get attention over loud performances that suck lol
