    Sorry it took me forever to make another poll, I’ve been locked out of my account I’m not sure why but I’m back now. Frances winning her third Oscar was obviously shocking especially considering who we all thought who the frontrunner were. I’m not made at her she is absolutely deserving to be a three time acting champ and I love her win. However my personal choice is Carey Mulligan but McDormand is desering none the less. What do you all think do you love or leather her win.

    I thought she was one of the 3 who were deserving: Kirby, McDormand and Mulligan. (Personally I’d vote for Kirby). But I won’t loathe her at all. It’s nice to see subtle work be appreciated.

    Btw I don’t understand Viola Davis’last 3 noms category placement.

    The Help: Emma Stone was the lead. Viola Davis had a screentime only a bit more than Spencer. Davis was borderline lead in a supporting role. (In my opinion)

    Fences: LEAD LEAD LEAD

    Ma Rainey: Supporting

    Just because she ruined our prediction doesn’t mean she didn’t deserve the awards and acclaim she received for her performance in Nomadland. Everyone with the name Frances keeps winning.

    Carey Mulligan should have won but McDormand was also quite deserving so I’m not too bothered by her win. That was a great lineup!

    Fantastic performance in a fantastic lineup, maybe sans Day. I would have wished for Carey but I would never complain about a legend getting her deserved third Oscar in Lead.

    This is actually the only time I would’ve voted for her (I would choose Watson in ’96 and Hawkins in ’17). Complaints that she’s “playing herself” in Nomadland are unintentionally a compliment, as her performance is so well lived-in (literally) and suggestive of a complex inner life that we are never distracted by her presence among real-life nomads. That she was so easily able to blend into her surroundings despite her recognisability is, in its own way, the type of actorly showcase that explains how she was able to win a third lead acting Oscar for such an unflashy role.

    I rewatched Nomadland after the Oscars and appreciated her performance much more this time around. Not a single note of artifice. I was quite annoyed by her win frankly. But I realized that I was wrong to begrudge this win. The main reason I was unhappy was probably because (in my opinion) she didn’t deserve her last two wins, over Watson and Brenda in 1994 and over Hawkins and Robbie in 2017. Yet, this year she thoroughly deserved the Oscar.

    LOATHE

    She’s definitely not an actress who deserves three Oscars like Daniel Day-Lewis, Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, and Ingrid Bergman.

    She’s nowhere near the level, status, and talent of these iconic actors

    And to think that Bette Davis wanted in advance to be the first to have three Oscars and in the end they left her seated thanks to mommie dearest.

    I voted LOVE but I don’t think she should’ve won or been nominated in the end.

    Among the list of nominees that did get in, I think she is a solid winner.

    You’re right.

    She’s greater than each of them.

    She’s great and all but considering her greater than Hepburn and Bergman is a stretch, at least to me.

    That said, her 3rd acting win was certainly more deserved than Bergman’s (as well as Streep’s).

    I LOVED it, and Im still quite surprised she won.

    The role is subtle and incredibly natural.
