    1-Gwyneth Paltrow, absolutely a bad performance
    2-Sandra Bullock, so close to Paltrow
    3- Jennifer Lawrence, a dumb performance

    Natalie Portman’s Oscar win for “Black Swan” was one of the best the Academy has thought to bestow, and at least top three calibre in the past ten years of this category.

    AMEN!

    Julianna Moore (Still Alice) beating Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl.) Love Moore, but terrible decision.

    Pike was great, but Moore had, in my opinion, one of the best performances of the decade in Still Alice. She absolutely deserved it.

    Someone will have to explain to me what Natalie Portman in Black Swan do that would rank her as one of the best winners. The dancing, costumes, and cinematography carried her through the film. There was one good scene when she cried to her mother over the phone. She was good but did nothing worthy imo. I read someone ranked her with Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard? Id put Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Kate Winslet (The Reader), and Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) up there before Id even mention Portman.

    I find Moore one of the weakest too.

    I agree with you about Cate Blanchett and probably Meryl Streep. But Moore and Winslet won because they were overdue.

    Julianne Moore having an Oscar is more important.

    The ususal suspects-

    – Elizabeth Taylor, Butterfield 8 over Shirley MacLaine in the Apartment
    – Judy Holliday, Born Yesterday over Bette Davis, All About Eve and Gloria Swanson, Sunset Blvd
    – Katherine Hepburn, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner over Anne Bancroft, The Graduate
    – Glenda Jackson, A Touch of Class over Ellen Burstyn, The Excorcist
    – Jane Fonda, Coming Home over  Ingrid Berman, Autumn Sonata and Jill Clayburgh, An Unmarried Woman
    – Marlee Matlin, Children of a Lesser God over Kathleen Turner, Peggy Sue Got Married
    – Cher, Moonstruck over Holly Hunter, Broadcast News
    – Jodie Foster, The Accused over Glenn Close, Dangerous Liaisons and Meryl Streep, A Cry in the Dark
    – Nicole Kidman, The Hours over Julianne Moore, Far From Heaven

    -Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady over Viola Davis, The Help

    Helen Hunt, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry. Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, Sandra Bullock, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s wins were underwhelming and will be mentioned too but I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the nominees those years so I can’t fault the Academy.

    Some of my personal more “controversial” ones

    – Shirley MacLaine, Terms of Endearment over Debra Winger, Terms of Endearment

    I watched Terms the other night on NetFlix.  Still like MacLaine a lot but Winger is so clearly more emotionally central, layered, likeable, relateable, and goes through a bigger range of emotion.  Clearly a case where past status of being overdue trumped what was actually on screen.

    – Kathy Bates, Misery over Anjelica Huston, The Grifters.

    Bates is fun but Huston gives one of the best performances of ALL TIME IMO.

    Huston postures tough when necessary and crumbles like a gremlin being exposed to sunlight. It’s not a very technical performance nor one where I could not imagine someone else making a greater impact in the role. She was suppose to be sexy but the Bea Arthur wig throws everything off.

    Jennifer phucking Lawrence.
    Sure, she has her legions of fans. But go back and watch the scene between her and Bradley in the diner. She is terrible. Like, high school
    theatre camp audition-bad. Blame it on the editing, but the truth is she is the one who delivered such a turkey in that scene.
    And for the record: Portman’s win is right up there with Blanchett, Theron and Cotillard in regards to the best in that category in the last fifteen or so years.

    Agree 100%, Jennifer Lawrence’s performance was mediocre. This is a great example of an Oscar winning performance  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCuSh0nGDh0 that’s the type of performance that should be getting recognition.

    Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady, Our Lady of Accents strikes agains this time with a lame impersonation in an even lamer movie which is basically a emotionless clip reel of Thatcher highlights spliced together with Meryl doddering around her kitchen in loads of makeup; just terrible

    Bette Davis, Dangerous, Davis is as sacred of a cow as any Great Actress but this performance (and movie) stinks to high heavan; every beat of this role is played in a screechy tone and even worse its all played to the rafters; only later would Davis learn the value of nuance

    Loretta Young, The Farmer’s Daughter, I echo tonorlo on this one; I have no idea how to explain this win

    Elizabeth Taylor, Butterfield Eight, “Mama face it I was the slut of all time”; and this is the greatest stinker of all time

    Kathy Bates, Misery, she was much better years late in another King adaptation Dolores Claiborne, which is a revelation; here though she is so aggresively one note that she strains herself in the process; cartoony

    Kate Winslet, The Reader, Nazi war criminals and illiteracy – that says it all right there, doesn’t it?

    Cate Blancett, Blue Jasmine, so shoot me! But I thought this was a miserable performance in an absolutely miserable film; What the fuck was up with her accent: no one talks like that let alone in New York; every mannerism was telegraphed, every actorly trick was on full display; Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger gives more natural performances

    I’m surprised no one has yet mentioned either Helen Hunt or Halle Berry. Those used to be the boogeymen in this category.
