    Francis did not deserve to win for Fargo. Out of the nominees, I would have placed Francis as high as third. I go back and forth between Watson and Blethyn for the win.

    Frances McDormand Fargo – WINNER
    Brenda Blethyn Secrets & Lies
    Diane Keaton Marvin’s Room
    Kristin Scott Thomas The English Patient
    Emily Watson Breaking the Waves

    I feel some people resent her win, mainly because they wanted someone else to win or they think she’s an actor undeserving of 3 Oscars because she’s not as good as other actors, but fail to talk about her performance, which got her the award in the first place. At the end of day, I loved Frances McDormand’s win and it was such a beautiful yet subtle performance and so lived-in. She deserved it.

    LOVE. It’s her best win and arguably her best performance to date. However it still kinda shocks me that the Academy manage to award a very subtle performance like this. Still good for her anyways!

    Olive Kitteridge is best work.

    I can’t say that in any year of her three wins was Frances was my fav. But I do think all her wins are deserving. And she’s done some great work beyond those three wins. Claiming she’s not “iconic” is just nonsense. Just because she doesn’t indulge obvious Oscar bait every year and has mostly stayed out of the limelight doesn’t mean she’s not that bytch.

    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

    Davis was lead in The Help. There’s a reason the movie ends on her character. Stone is also a lead, but her character is more like a filter so ideally white people could more easily get into the story. The movie probably would have been better without Stone’s character being the filter, and perhaps Davis would have won the Oscar if that wasn’t the case. But Davis’ character has a lot of screen time, the most obvious arc, the most dramatic moments. The movie is centered around her journey and conflict and ends on her.

    I can agree with the other two examples.

    Probably I would have given Frances the Oscar just for 3 Billboards (Emily Watson my pick in 1997, Mulligan this year).

    Anyway in Nomadland she givea great performances so I will never include her in the undeserved group of Oscar winning performance.

    Olive Kitteridge is her best performance.

    By far my favorite performance of all the 20 acting nominees. One of my most satisfying times at the oscars

    Loathed the film and felt kinda indifferent to her performance. Not saying it was bad though.

    Out of her 6 nominations she was most deserving for Almost Famous and Nomandland.
