    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.

    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.

    Michelle Williams Oscar campaign manager.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    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.

    And? Her win is still bad 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)

    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.

    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.

    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.
