    • Christian Bale – Vice
    • Gary Oldman – the Darkest Hour
    • Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    • Casey Affleck – Manchester by the Sea
    • Natalie Portman – Jackie
    • Kate Winslet – Steve Jobs
    • Keira Knightley – the Imitation Game
    • Felicity Jones – the Theory of Everything
    • Sandra Bullock – Gravity

    Umm excuse me, but Sandra Bullock deserved to win for her performance in Gravity. And Kate Winslet and Keira Knightley were both excellent.

    Rockwell definitely did deserve that win.

    Harrelson deserved it.

    These performances are not performances that I consider overrated only here at GoldDerby, but in general, performances that I see often being praised in forums, film groups, which have received recognition in awards (television awards or critics associations or film festivals …). Just to be clear, I like some of these performances, some are even my favorite of their respective year, I just don’t think they are as amazing performances as most people.

    Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander – The danish girl
    Frances Mcdormand – Fargo
    Amy Adams – American Hustle and Doubt
    Michelle Williams – My Week with Marilyn
    Kate Winslet – The Reader
    Sean Penn – Mystic River
    Rachel Weisz – The Deep Blue Sea
    Lady Gaga – A star is born
    Glenn Close – The Wife
    Brie Larson – Room
    Yalitza Aparicio – Rome
    Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    Keira Knightley – The Imitation Game
    Liv Ullman – Persona, Cries and Whispers

    The upside of the Dafoe/Rockwell year is that regardless of who won (I would’ve been fine with either) it launched them both into a career renaissance

    Rockwell definitely did deserve that win.

    Also his character arc and the fact that his character was so sympathetic definitely helped him win.

    Harrelson deserved it.

    That’s actually the first time I’ve heard that opinion.

    Anyway, the most overrated performance I’ve seen this year was Margot Robbie in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. By no means a bad performance, but she just does so little. The fact that some people call her the heart of the film seems ridiculous to me since the film actually has a pretty charming friendship between DiCaprio and Pitt to act as the heart which gets more screen time and focus than Margot’s entire role. Unlike Robbie, Leo and Brad play developed characters, so it’s easier to care about them. I think Tarantino was just banking on people liking and sympathizing with the real life Sharon Tate, so he didn’t bother trying to develop her role. I get the feeling that she could’ve definitely given a great performance if she was given the material, but what she was given was just Sharon Tate walking around acting nice while barely saying anything. Again, I think she’s good. Just not great.

    Margot getting Oscar buzz was because of the hype the film had and its position as an early front-runner. I don’t remember anyone, critic or member (Except Thatcher) stanning hard for her performance. Some of us knew she had more chances with Bombshell than with Once Upon.

    To stay on topic, I find this to be the most overrated performance of the year:

    This thread’ s not for me and I’d been rooting for Rockwell for decades, but…

    She was sweet in the role but that category isn’t that devoid of worthy contenders, surely? I’ve just recently watched it and her performance doesn’t call for the hype she’s getting here. Diana Lin had a much richer performance but is barely even talked about.

    Yeah, the character is good, of course. But if we are being critical..herself as an actress didn’t emote me at all. I also didn’t feel chemistry between her and Awkwafina, at any moment. Which I could see with Diana Lin, who I agree gives the best supporting performance of the film.

    I agree with Casey Affleck. Denzel acted circles around him. That August Wilson dialogue is insanely difficult and both him and Viola gave masterclass performances. Also, Yalitza really wasn’t great. Cuarón filmed half the film with her back to the camera for a reason.

    I actually really liked Yalitza’s performance. The fact that she wasn’t an actress and was a teacher when she signed up for the role made her performance so raw and pure to me. I loved that Alfonso Cuaron cast her actual best friend in the movie to play her best friend. It made the performance much more real. Yalitza wasn’t comfortable with the nudity so Cuaron filmed the nude scene and Yalitza separately. But she’s from a small village so it’s understandable. Marina de Tavira is absolutely phenomenal in Roma so I’m so glad she got the oscar nomination last year. Her performance also aided Yalitza a lot, as actors feed off of one another so she had a big part of Yalitza’s beach scene with her crying that she never wanted the baby that she lost.

    My most overrated performances are mostly all Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lawrence performances, sorry Kellis! (The Joy nom was a joke and she should not have beat Jessica Chastain in 2013, who was nominated for Zero Dark Thirty). Gwyneth Paltrow winning the Oscar for Shakespeare in Love over Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth still bugs me. Honestly, same with the Judi Dench win that year but unfortunately, that was at the height of the Weinstein campaigning fiasco. As much as I love Meryl Streep, I felt that her performance in The Post should not have been nominated for an Oscar and was pure Oscar bait. The nomination that year should have gone to Vicky Krieps for Phantom Thread. Lastly, Emma Stone’s win for the literal Hollywood handjob, La La Land. Her performance was nothing special and the award should have gone to Isabelle Huppert for Elle who delivered such a complex and deep performance.
