    Maybe they look great when you first watching them, but, time goes on, and sometimes some of these ‘great’ performances falls flat on rewatch.

    Which winning performances that do you think doesn’t have much of an impact as it used to be, or feels dated on repeated viewing? And why?

    Joaquin Phoenix – Joker
    DiCaprio – The Revenant

    I find both performances good, but pale to their respective best performances.

    For Phoenix u have ‘Her’, ‘The Master’
    DiCaprio Wolf of Wall Street, The Aviator

    For me thier winning roles rank outside their top 10 performances.

    Renee Zellweger and Hilary Swank double wins must be among the worst offenders.

    Best Actor: Tom Hanks (Philadelphia), Colin Firth (The King’s Speech)

    Best Supporting Actor: George Clooney (Syriana), Peter Ustinov (Spartacus AND Topkaki – not that he’s bad in them… just far from Oscar-worthy. And Olivier gives the best supporting performance in Spartacus.), Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire – and that’s ignoring the allegations)

    Best Actress: Joan Fontaine (Suspicion – especially when considering her other performances and her contemporaries that year), Cher (Moonstruck), Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line – how did this beat Keira Knightley in Pride and Prejudice?), Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), Julianne Moore (Still Alice – almost as bad as Meryl Streep’s win for Iron Lady, tbh), Brie Larson (Room – I still don’t understand why this film and this performance became so acclaimed. Literally won here over Cate Blanchett + Saoirse Ronan, then got a director nom over Todd Haynes and a Picture nom over Carol – wtf?), … (I would say Halle Berry here, but that was a pretty weak year nomination-wise. Spacek and Kidman clip her, but the best performances (Naomi Watts, Mulholland Drive) weren’t even nominated, so I don’t know how to feel and it was certainly good that a black actress won at that point…)

    Best Supporting Actress – Ingrid Bergman (Murder On The Orient Express), Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck), Kim Basinger (LA Confidential – easily the weakest of the four leads. If anyone should have been nominated, it would be Spacey.), Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind),

    …and the be-all and end-all – Don Ameche in Cocoon. Probably the most boring performance to have ever won an Oscar. I’m not joking. He literally does nothing interesting throughout all of this film.

    They still are, lol. (The only exception for me being Weaver in Silver Linings – the rest are solid nominees, with some being win-worthy (Bale in Fighter, Lawrence in Silver Linings and Cooper in American Hustle)).

    Still, David O Russell is kind of an asshole, so I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody is talking about these films in 50 years time cos of that (same with Woody Allen films from the last 30 years).

    Lies! She deserved a win over Hudson in 2006 as well; not just a win against Paltrow in 1998. And a win over Larson in 2015, for that matter.

    Fight me.

    I’ll fight you. Her performance in The Aviator is an absolute cringe. her worst tendencies (mannerism) taken to the extreme. It’s a really bad performance that won because she was due and played an iconic historical figure. Deserving to win for other performances doesn’t make this one deserving or even good. It was a caricature.

    A performance like Joker will hold up to the end of times, they’re still talking about it, they’re still debating about it. I haven’t heard people talking that much about the other performances like this one.
