Not a performance per se, but is there a reason Amadeus wasn’t nominated for score, of all things?
I’d have thought it would be obvious why the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wasn’t eligible for an award for film scoring; that year’s winner Maurice Jarre even quipped on stage that he was fortunate he didn’t have to compete with Mozart.January 21, 2022 at 1:12 pm #1204742426
Having just watched Glory for the first time I must say I was impressed with Matthew Broderick’s performance and surprised he gained no traction. The movie was a critical success, he’s white, heterosexual, was handsome, and as far as I know in his first dramatic lead role…what went wrong?

Fair enough! I thought there would still be points for production, or selection and arrangement or performance, not necessarily authorship of the original music (like adapted screenplay). Someone still had to put the film score together. But yeah now that obviously makes sense.
ETA i just read the original score eligibility … chalk this up to a blonde moment.

She is SO good in everything. I found that story in Variety enraging about how a crew member in Yellowjackets body shamed her and suggested she get a personal trainer!!!!
Not the same Melanie, that article was talking about Melanie Lynskey not Mélanie Laurent…January 21, 2022 at 2:27 pm #1204742692

Nicole Kidman and John Malkovich in The Portrait of a Lady. Barbara Hershey was nominated and imo both Kidman and Malkovich gave win-competitive performances.
Joan Crawford in a number of films namely A Woman’s Face and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? In the latter she gives an incredibly thoughtful and natural performance, especially compared to Bette’s overacting (which I’m not gonna lie- I live for.)

I still think Cold Mountain missing out on loads of nominations is criminal, especially Kidman. She 100% should of been nominated.Not now
