    People are still mad that Sally Hawkins lost, but she didn’t do anything special in that boring film. Robbie and McDormand were more deserving indeed.

    I love Sally Hawkins and thought she was excellent but I find it personally so tiring to hear people go on about her performance as if it’s one of the best in human history. Purely because she performed in ASL. Similar thing with Saoirse Ronan.

    What I really liked about McDormand and Robbie’s performances was the fact they had a lot of depth. Neither were “caricatures” and in spite of the tonal eccentricities of Robbie’s film, both felt really grounded in their roles. I also felt they offered novel interpretations on their character types.

    There are a lot of poor recent ones….

    Emma Stone in La La Land has to be the least deserving. At least you can chalk up Roberts and Bullock to them being huge stars and the Industry wanting to recognize them. Stone did nothing in that movie that a million other actresses couldn’t have done – and a lot of them would have done it better.

    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).

    She played a real-life figure and based on what I’ve seen from Leigh Anne Tuohy, Bullock nailed the woman’s whole persona. So although some prefered others to win the actual prize, I think calling her acting ‘basic’ and ‘bad’ is still a stretch.

    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.

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

    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.

    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
