    Donald Sutherland in Ordinary People. He should have had Jack Lemmon or Peter O’Toole’s spots.

    I’ve always wondered what Glenn Close was campaigned for, lead or supporting?

    Totally agreed. Both Woodard and Mary Kay Place in “Diane” needed bigger pushes to get the academy members to see/hear about these wonderful performances.

    Alfre Woodard, Clemency.

    Had the film been released earlier in the year, Alfre would’ve been a nominee.

    NEON should’ve treated “Clemency” how Sony Pictures Classics handled “The Wife”. There needed to be a campaign highlighting Woodard’s tenure in the business. While also recognizing her extraordinary work in this film.

    It’s a case of the right actress in the right movie distributed by the wrong studio in the wrong season.

    Diane Keaton in The Godfather and The Godfather part 2

    How Talia Shire got in for Godfather II over Keaton is really odd. That scene where she tells him about the abortion and then the scene where he slams the door in her face are iconic.

    Also how Michael V. Gazzo and Lee Strasberg got in over John Cazale is also baffling.

    Honestly, most of the ensemble of PARASITE not getting attention was absolutely bonkers…especially once the passion we saw the film had.

    Song Kang-ho did have critics award attention but Cho Yeo-Jeong, Park So-dam, and Lee Jung-eun in particular not getting any attention was shameful.

    I also love the Ashton Sanders mentions for MOONLIGHT. He was the one that should’ve won that Oscar and not Mahershala Ali.

    This year alone, we had Adele Haenel and Alfre Woodard getting shut out of the mix (though PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE had even more hurdles to overcome than CLEMENCY did).

    “The art of making art is putting it together...”

    Courtney Love screwed herself out of a nomination by wanting to go lead. She’d probably have gotten in as Supporting (taking Joan Allen’s spot.)

    I always thought her desire to go lead probably had something to do with wanting to beat out Madonna for Evita. She’s always had animosity towards her. (she threw a shoe at Madonna once on MTV live and Madonna said something about this is what recreational drug use does to you.)

    He did get the Robert Altman Award at the Indie Spirits and the MTV Award for Best Kiss so he at least couldn’t go away from that season completely empty handed (despite deserving more).
