    Its time for another round of love or loathe. This time we have Lupita Nyong’o and her Performance in 12 Years a Slave. Honestly speaking I hate this win because I personally feel like she didn’t do anything in the movie. I would not have even nominated her and if I were to nominate an Actress from the film it would definitely be Sarah Paulson, who made my personable line up that year. Paulson was miles better than Nyong’o in my opinion. So let me m ow what you think do you love or loathe her win.

    You think the slaveowner was better than the slave? Be serious.

    One of the best wins of the whole decade in any category.
    An outstanding Performance worthy of every accolade.

    Yes I did. I found Paulson gave a better Performance in my opinion.

    Thank god she won darling. I can’t imagine that overacting Razzie-worthy girl from American Hustle considered to be a frontrunner in 2014.

    I feel it was the other way around. Paulson did nothing

    Lupita Nyong’o gave one of the most auspicious debut performances in the last 25 years. So I voted loved, obv.

    Not my personal winner that year (if I remember correctly it was Johannson for Her) but of the nominees and major contenders, absolutely. She doesn’t get as much to do as she’s capable of, but there’s more to her perf than people remember. They used that same goddamn clip of her screaming about the soap at EVERY AWARDS SHOW so that’s what people remember but imo her best scene is actually the one where she very quietly and calmly wakes Solomon up in the middle of the night and asks him to kill her. So much controlled emotion that makes the later blow up much more powerful.

    The post above just reminded me that SCARLETT JOHANSSON should have been nominated for Her. Would have been a bold, daring and unconventional nomination. She created a complete character through just the words and delivery.

    Just a solid performance, nowhere near the best of the year. But it did stop Lawrence from winning a second Oscar with a DOR film, so I’m voting for love!

    You don’t have to be an asshole sweetie. We get it, you have made it pretty clear that you don’t like Jennifer Lawrence. In fact you don’t like when a young yt woman wins an oscar. Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma stone, Alicia vikander… the list just goes on.

    I don’t loathe the performance, Nyong’o is a talanted actress and I appreciate what she brings to the role, but there’s only so much she can do with a role that asks little more of her than to endure abuse. Not a case of a bad performance winning an Oscar, but not a particularly worthy performance either in my opinion. It was never going to happen, but I think Sally Hawkins should’ve won for Blue Jasmine. Honestly I think any of the other nominees would’ve been a better choice. I’d rank them as follows:

    1. Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine
    2. June Squibb, Nebraska
    3. Julia Roberts, August: Osage County
    4. Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle
    5. Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave

    If I chose the nominees I’d keep them the same except replace Nyong’o with Léa Seydoux in Blue is the Warmest Color.

    ^ I’d swap Roberts and Nyongo but I agree with pretty much everything else you posted!

    If I were to choose the nominees for that year, it’d look like this:

    1. Shu Qi, Journey to the West
    2. Zhao Tao, A Touch of Sin
    3. Lola Dueñas, I’m so Excited
    4. Uma Thurman, Nymphomaniac
    5. Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine

    She was my personal choice that year although it’s a win that ages poorly for me not because I like her performance or the film any less (far from it, 12 Years a Slave remains the 2nd best picture win of the past decade imo) but because it just feels unfortunate now we’ve seen what Lupita can really deliver on screen that the only mainstream recognition Hollywood has given her outside of Us (which she for some reason wasn’t even nominated for) is for playing a slave.
