    Welcome back to another round of love or loathe. This time we have Julianne Moore and her Oscar winning performance in Still Alice. While I do understand why the Oscar’s gave her a win for this Performance (they love to reward roles with disabilities) I’m really not a fan of it. Her Performance came off as odd and melodramatic which is just my view. I would not have even nominated Julianne, and how in the hell can you compare Juliannes Performance to Rosamund Pikes as the greatest femme fatal of all time in Gone Girl. Rosamunds Performance and movie is still talked about and remembered to this day while Juliannes is not. Rosamund Pike gave an iconic Performance as Amy Elliott Dunne and no one can say otherwise. Let me know what you all think do you love or loathe her win.

    I thought she was good but I would have given it to Cotillard who gave one of my favourite performances of all time in Two Days, One Night!

    My lineup that year:

    – Marion Cotillard, Two Days, One Night
    – Julianne Moore, Still Alice
    – Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl
    – Birte Schnoink, Amour Fou
    – Reese Witherspoon, Wild

    FYC: Better Call Saul, The English and The Good Fight in all categories including Emily Blunt, Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Loveeee. Moore delivered a heartbreaking performance and seeing her gradually lose herself felt so authentic in a horrifying way. Moore is such an established composed scholar in the beginning of the film and by the end she is a hollow shell of herself, yet is still able to recognize love in a bittersweet tender moment with Kristen Stewart.

    I agree that Rosamund Pike delivered a better and a more iconic performance than Julianne Moore, but I’m also glad that Julianne Moore has an Oscar. She should have won both for Far From Heaven and The Hours.

    One of the few makeup Oscars I’m okay with. It’s not her best performance but was good enough to justify giving it to her then. She and Leo were in similar situations and won back to back. I just love Julianne.

    It’s a great performance. Marion Cotillard and Rosamund Pike were better but I don’t mind Julianne’s win at all. She was overdue and had the right role. Just wished the movie was better tho.

    It’s a fine performance, not something that ever should have won, especially when she should have been winning in supporting that same year for Maps to the Stars.

    Really like it. It’s one of these career wins that I don’t begrudge at all, however Marion Cotillard was my favorite of the line-up by far; one of my favorite performances ever.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I…like it. I’m happy that she won for a good performance and not other phony stuff like The Hours or Far From Heaven. She was my third favorite of the lineup (behind Cotillard and Pike) so she wouldn’t have gotten my vote, but still solid work from her. And of course, I can’t be mad at all considering she also had Maps to the Stars in that year – should have won every single award with that, from Cannes to the Oscars.

    I don’t mind her win, I just think she won for the wrong film. Rosamund Pike should’ve won and Julianne should’ve won Supporting Actress for The Hours. One of her best performances of her career.
