    Would’ve been a nice to time to recognize ScarJo… Zellweger’s “Judy” Oscar was a make-up award for her being robbed for “Chicago” (even though her “Cold Mountain” supporting win – an AWFUL winner – was already a make-up award of sorts).

    Lol it obviously wasn’t a makeup award. She swept awards season. Other than Erivo, Zellweger was ten times better than her Oscar lineup.

    Jay pharoah can do a helluva denzel amongst the many other impressions he can do, Im fairly certain that he’s likely not winning awards anytime soon. That was just a long way of saying mastering impressions is the most basic level of acting.

    No one was talking about impressions here. I was talking about nailing a character. It means she was pitch-perfect as that woman. Was it Oscar-worthy? Some say it was, some say it wasn’t. But it wasn’t bad acting and you know it.

    Emma Stone. I always thought Ryan Gosling was the stand out of that movie.

    As much as I dislike Emma Stone’s victory, she was much better than Ryan Gosling. Both shouldn’t have been nominated though

    Apart from Darkest Hour, what wouldn’t have been a better picture winner than The Shape of Water? Three Billboards was one of the best films in the Picture lineup (I personally preferred Get Out and Phantom Thread) and whilst I was rooting for Robbie, McDormand gave a phenomenal performance and was thoroughly deserving of her win.

    Three Billboards was messy and Phantom Thread was a sleeping pill. The Shape of Water deserved.

    Margot Robbie should have won best actress

    Looking back now, Jennifer Lawrence is one of them. She won because she was the “it” girl at the time. Should’ve have been Riva.

    There was a Film4 (I think) advert here recently showing a mash of clips for their Hunger Games marathon, most of her forced yelling and grimacing, I still don’t understand how she got acclaimed for those movies being such a limited actress…

    Darlings I’m so happy that Chadwick and Viola’s overrated Black Bottoms didn’t win. Such a boring film. Avenger Mulligan and Demented Hopkins were the pick of the bunch. At least one of them won.

    Renee was the best in that lineup. Deal with it.

    She was extremely mediocre, just like the overall quality of that line up. She was top3 but considering the competition of that year, she wasn’t even close to being top5.

    And Jay pharoah’s pitch perfect as Kanye every time he does him, doesnt mean he shouldve got an emmy when he played him on Saturday Night live. If the best one could say about someone’s performance is that they nailed their targets essence then it wasnt a good performance

    I kind of feel this way about Renee. I thought she was the best in the lineup but no way was she good as the actresses who were snubbed. I wouldn’t even consider Renee top 7 in the past decade of Best Actress winners.

    Scarlett Johansson was the best in the 2020 best actress lineup, and she’s the only actual nominee I would’ve nominated in best actress that year. My personal lineup would be:

    Taylor Russell, Waves

    Awkwafina, The Farewell

    Florence Pugh, Midsommar

    Scarlett Johansson, Marriage Story

    Cho Yeo-Jeong, Parasite

     

    I don’t care if the first and last were supporting, they feels like bordeline to me, and it’s actually they millon times better than the rest of the actual nominees. Last year acting lineup was so terrible.

    FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

    Michelle Yeoh, Everything Everywhere All At Once
    Tang Wei, Decision To Leave
    Rebecca Hall, Resurrection

    James Hong & Jamie Lee Curtis, Everything Everywhere All At Once

    Interesting that you say that because I quite honestly think she’s better in The Hunger Games than she is in any of her other films except Winter’s Bone. Granted, she’s playing a very similar character as in Winter’s Bone, and yes it’s a limited range but what she does well she does very very well.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    Well, Morfydd Clark outacted McDormand and Mulligan this year but no one is crying about it. So many people get snubbed year by year. The Renée attacks are getting tired.

    And? Her win is still mediocre and this thread is exactly for us to call out the wins we dislike.
    And regarding Morfydd, sadly (almost) no one watched Saint Maud and A24 did an atrocious job with it.

    Ones I can’t get over:

    Cher over Holly Hunter/Sally Kirkland/Glenn Close

    Helen Hunt over Judi Dench/Helena Bonham Carter, not to mention the exclusion of Pam Grier

    Gwyneth Paltrow over Fernanda Montenegro/Cate Blanchett/Emily Watson

    Julia Roberts over Ellen Burstyn

    Reese Witherspoon over Felicity Huffman (although Woke twitter would have a problem with Felicity winning nowadays)

    Jennifer Lawrence over Emmanuelle Riva

    Emma Stone over Isabelle Huppert

    I’m not mad at too many Oscar wins enough to say it’s the WORST performance, but I do think the best performance in any given lineup doesn’t often win.

    I feel like for me the wins that I dislike the most are probably Sandra Bullock & Gwyneth Paltrow. Other than that, it’s mostly been a case of “I kinda wish somebody else had won.” Lol I’m going to piss off every single person with this post (I don’t mean to, I promise)

    1990 – Kathy Bates (deserved, but Julia Roberts would’ve been great too)
    1991 – Jodie Foster (deserved, but also Geena Davis)
    1992 – Emma Thompson (ugh this is hard bc I love her so much, but should’ve been Catharine Deneuve)
    1993 – Holly Hunter (super deserved—but…Angela Bassett was neck-in-neck!)
    1994 – Jessica Lange (Miranda Richardson or Winona Ryder deserved it more)
    1995 – Susan Sarandon (totally deserved, best in lineup for me)
    1996 – Frances McDormand (great win, but Emily Watson was better)
    1997 – Helen Hunt (weird field, Hunt was good, maybe Helena Bonham Carter deserved it more)
    1998 – Gwyneth Paltrow (terrible win, Fernanda Montenegro is my fave but could’ve been a win for anyone else. Emily Watson & Streep were great).
    1999 – Hilary Swank (close one, Annette Bening was fantastic too)
    2000 – Julia Roberts (Ellen Burstyn for sure)
    2001 – Halle Berry (super deserved, maybe Judi Dench comes closest)
    2002 – Nicole Kidman (I do not like this win because it’s not even the best performance in the film. Julianne Moore or Diane Lane deserved it more.)
    2003 – Charlize Theron (deserved, personally I love Samantha Morton’s performance more)
    2004 – Hilary Swank (deserved in a strange field, I think Catalina Sandino Moreno was fab)
    2005 – Reese Witherspoon (SUPER weak field imo, but…maybe peak Keira Knightley? Such a weak field tho)
    2006 – Helen Mirren (good, but preferred Judi Dench and Kate Winslet)
    2007 – Marion Cotillard (probably the best win on this list)
    2008 – Kate Winslet (she was better in Revolutionary Road, and Anne Hathaway’s best performance is still Rachel Getting Married so…)
    2009 – Sandra Bullock (oof, awful. Gabourey Sidibe deserved it most, but everyone before Bullock)
    2010 – Natalie Portman (OK win, Michelle Williams deserved it way more)
    2011 – Meryl Streep (the worst lineup ever. Nobody deserved it, shoulda been Kirsten Dunst or Tilda Swinton who were not nominated, but…OK, Viola Davis then)
    2012 – Jennifer Lawrence (clearly Emmanuelle Riva)
    2013 – Cate Blanchett (everyone loves this win, I never did. Controversial but this is my fave Streep performance. Strangely weak field otherwise, I loved Bullock at the time but I rewatched it and thought “she’s not doing much at all” lol)
    2014 – Julianne Moore (imo, deserved, but Marion Cotillard would’ve been a great winner too).
    2015 – Brie Larson (on balance, I liked this performance a lot, but Charlotte Rampling & Saoirse Ronan were better)
    2016 – Emma Stone (again, liked it a lot, but far from best. Isabelle Huppert by a mile, and then maybe Ruth Negga)
    2017 – Frances McDormand (This isn’t a bad win by any means but Sally Hawkins was better. I’d have put McDormand at #2 anyway).
    2018 – Olivia Colman (OOF, such a great win, but Glenn Close was indeed amazing—for me they’re neck-in-neck)
    2019 – Renee Zellweger (what even is this field?! All the best, especially Alfre Woodard, were snubbed! Cynthia Erivo I guess was the best in this lineup)
    2020 – Frances McDormand (great win but Kirby was the best)

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.
