    It’s so interesting that when I think of more deserving winners than the actual winner after Halle Berry’s win, I can unequivocally say at least 3 Black actresses deserved it the most in their field.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    The Power of the Dog / Jane Campion / Benedict Cumberbatch / Kristen Stewart / Kirsten Dunst / Troy Kotsur

    This isn’t a personal attack but I’m familiar with your hatred towards Renée’s win since last year. I don’t see similar hate directed towards other undeserving wins though and, God, there are many of those.

    That’s a bit random but okay. I don’t even think she’s the worst Best Actress winner of the decade. Maybe I’m vocal about it because it’s a recent win and her performance was in the typical and basic Oscar bait, which I hate, and I don’t think she did anything special in the movie. If you revisite some of the previous pages, I’ve been vocal about several winners I highly dislike.

    Kate Winslet won in the right year but for the wrong performance. A win for Revolutionary Road would have been one of the best ever whilst The Reader wasn’t particularly worthy.

    I can’t believe the first comment on this thread called Portman the worst winner. One of the worst takes I’ve ever seen.

    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

    Bullock was not bad is my point.

    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.

    This. People just love to hate Renée.

    100%. Revolutionary Road is a strange film. I remember absolutely LOVING it and being blown away by it & then years later I sort of felt like it had too many stylized histrionics, but it’s still a very good film. But either way Kate Winslet’s performance was awesome—I think Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married still edges her out for me, but I would have been totally happy with her winning for Revolutionary Road given that she was “overdue” at the time and it seemed kinda obvious she would win.

    2004 – Hilary Swank (deserved in a strange field, I think Catalina Sandino Moreno was fab)

    Kate Winslet in ESOM easily.

    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.

    Agree, I don’t think that’s anywhere near “bad acting” at all. It’s not a showy performance and not the best of the year but hardly razzie-worthy many are making it to be.

    I would definitely say Helen Hunt & Paltrow did bad acting though.

    Bullock in The Blind Side. Wouldn’t even have nominated her for the role and I say that as someone who didn’t hate the film and thought she was exceptional in Gravity.

    It’s not a terrible performance by any means and I guess my sentiments towards it aren’t that of detestation but even as someone who really liked Shakespeare in Love (and thought it deserved its Best Picture win over Saving Private Ryan), I just find Paltrow’s win really unremarkable. Not only is it a performance that imo shouldn’t have even been nominated that year, never mind won over Blanchett, Montenegro and Watson’s unimpeachable turns, but I just don’t even think it’s Paltrow’s best performance that year. Any actor could have played Viola de Lesseps just as well or even better than she did that year. The same can’t be said of some of her fellow nominees that year or even some of Paltrow’s performance around and shortly after her win like those in Sliding Doors, The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Royal Tenenbaums.

    I recently watched The Good Earth and Luise Rainer has to be the worst Best Actress winner of all time right? Not only is the movie bad and offensive but Rainer managed to be 10x worse. A blank space of emotions, it was basically like watching a robot. Just bad. 💀

    Absolutely the worst winner. The yellowface of it all and the bad acting, I dislike that win so viscerally.

    I wish there was any myriads of other actresses from that era that could have cake-walked this win. Paltrow winning is proof it was the film’s success and not the character/performance itself, so I just wish it was somebody else that could’ve had a win on their resume who was a bit more… deserving of the honor on a career basis. I’m thinking like a Christina Ricci or somebody, although Ricci woulda been miscast. You get my drift, though. lol

    I have to go with Cher. It’s unbelievable that she beat Close and Hunter. Unreal. For the most basic rom com performance. Close and Hunter turned in legendary performances, while Close in Fatal Attraction is an iconic timeless role.

    Who still watches Moonstruck or even thinks about it?
