    Welcome back for another round of love or loathe. This time we have Brie Larson and her devastating Performance in Room. I personally felt she was beyond brilliant in the movie and is fully deserving of her win. My personal winner of that year was Charlotte Rampling for her master class of acting in 45 years, but that’s not to say Brie was not deserving, you can have limitless deserving performers in a year. I loved the movie it was easily one of the best of the year when it came out and Jacob Tremblay should have been nominated. Let me know what you guys thin donyou love or loathe her win for this movie.

    It’s an okay performance. I can see the appeal but I just did not care for it, at all. I also find the movie overrated. Jacob Tremblay definitely MVP and deserved a nom.

    My personal ranking of the nominees:

    1. Rampling
    2. Ronan
    3. Blanchett
    4. Larson
    5. Lawrence

    Love it. Rampling should’ve won, but Larson was still worthy and made sense as a winner. Blanchett just wasn’t winning only two years after her second win, Ronan was overrated in that forgettable film and Lawrence shouldn’t even have been nominated.

    Definitely best of that really good year – which could’ve been made better without category fraud.

    Should’ve been, in order, Larson, Ronan, Vikander, Mara, Blanchett, who all gave Oscar-worthy performances.

    I like her as an actress in general so I don’t have any problem with her winning, but I didn’t connect to this film or her work as much as many others seemed to.

    For me squarely the best performance eligible in this category was Nina Hoss in Phoenix, and I also thought Rooney Mara gave the best performance of any nominee that year. Not to mention Rampling’s excellent work too and the best nominated in her category. So for me, I don’t consider her performance in Room to be among the best by an actress that year, but it’s closer to indifference than loathing.

    Love, and I think she absolutely earned that Oscar.

    She was great, it actually surprise me how much I liked her performance and the film. But obviously there were better options that year (Ronan, my personal favourite). It’s kind of sad that she went to Marvel so fast…

    Blunt, Taylor-Joy, Tremblay, Rampling, Ronan, Vikander and Mara were better. Shame the latter two were frauded into supporting as either should have won. It was a baity and one dimensional performance any unknown actress could have given and won. The fact Brie has done nothing of relevance since says a lot.

    FYC:

    Zar Amir Ebrahimi - Holy Spider (Best Actress)
    Ana de Armas, Julianne Nicholson - Blonde (Best Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Samantha Morton - She Said (Best Supporting Actress)
    Kerry Condon - The Banshees of Inisherin (Best Supporting Actress)

    I love it. It may not be my favourite performance of the year (Rampling is) but it was a good and devastating look into motherhood. Jacob Tremblay was the MVP of the film and his snub (along with Abraham Attah’s snub) is disgusting. Joan Allen was also great.

    My personal ranking of the nominees that year:

    1.) Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years
    2.) Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn
    3.) Brie Larson, Room
    4.) Jennifer Lawrence, Joy
    5.) Cate Blanchett, Carol

    Of the BA nominees, she was my 4th choice behind Ronan, Blanchett and Rampling.

    Had I selected the nominees, she wouldn’t have been nominated— I preferred Blunt in Sicario, an “unfrauded” Mara in Carol, Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road, and/or Mulligan, whom I liked very much in Suffragette, even though that movie itself could have been stronger.

    Ronan would have been my choice that year, but her time is coming soon enough. Larson was again in that middle ground of neither love or loathe, but good enough.

    I used to love it darling, but years later this performance and win not ages well, now I resent it because of how badly robbed Charlotte Rampling was. Her performance in 45 Years is an acting masterpiece, one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    Karen Larson also become so unlikable lately.

    I really like Brie’s performance, but Saoirse’s performance in Brooklyn was way better.

    I don’t really like hating on anyone, but I really loathe this. Charlotte Rampling was literally right there. Honestly all of the nominees were better than her (except maybe Lawrence, but I wouldn’t have nominated either of them anyways). I don’t dislike Brie Larsson and she did a good enough job in the role, but in my opinion this win was based on baity material and not merit.
