    Not exactly “weirdly unrecognized”, but Vicky Krieps was the heart, soul, and body of Phantom Thread

    I still don’t get how John David Washington didn’t get in for BlacKkKlansman. He was the star of the movie. He should have replaced Rami Malek.

    Movie-lover overall.

    Not really weird since it’s only competitive in Best International Film, but Jasna Djuricic in Quo Vadis Aida could wash most of the Best Actress nominees this year.

    Also Andrew Garfield in Silence. I really think it’s a superior performance than Hacksaw Ridge. But the movie sadly flopped.

    I know they all got nominated pretty much everywhere, but it was weird that The Shape of Water’s cast couldn’t win a single televised award. And the SAG ensemble miss remains baffling.

    I liked 3BB more overall but Hawkins and Jenkins deserved better.

    it was also odd that Michael Shannon, who was excellent, got no attention. This was even after he got a random nomination the year before for Nocturnal Animals, so he should have been on the minds of the academy anyway.

    Richard Gere in Chicago

    I used to hate it when I would comment on how great an actor’s performance was in a film and my parents would say, “but you should have seen [so and so] on stage— [he or she] was even better in that role.”  BUT, here I go— having seen them both, Richard Gere was great in the movie, Chicago, but I thought Jerry Orbach was even better as Billy Flynn in the Broadway version.

    Anne Hathaway really sucked up all the supporting actress oxygen for that movie, but I think she was also hurt by Hooper totally fucking up her big number. I mean it’s one of the most famous songs in the show and he directed it so strangely!

    I’ve always thought Kelly Macdonald was excellent in No Country for Old Men and should’ve gotten more recognition.

    She got a BAFTA nomination!

    Many didn’t make BP so I suppose that’s telling, but they hit somewhere or the other.

    Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby & Hannah and Her Sisters
    Barbara Hershey, Hannah and Her Sisters
    Vicky Krieps, Phantom Thread
    Amy Adams, Arrival
    Kirsten Dunst, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, also I think she freaking nails her white-complicity character in Hidden Figures. Octavia’s scenes with Dunst got her the nod, but Dunst went toe-to-toe with her and those were the best and most nuanced parts of the entire film.
    Kathleen Turner, The Virgin Suicides
    Michael B. Jordan, Creed & Fruitvale Station
    Kiki Layne & Stephan James, If Beale Street Could Talk
    Annette Bening, 20th Century Women
    Anne Hathaway, Brokeback Mountain
    Rosemarie DeWitt, Rachel Getting Married
    Emily Blunt, The Devil Wears Prada
    Allison Williams & Betty Gabriel, Get Out
    Joel Edgerton, Loving
    Winona Ryder, Girl Interrupted
    Jena Malone, Pride & Prejudice
    Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road
    Emily Watson, War Horse
    Paul Dano, There Will Be Blood
    Angela Bassett, Malcolm X
    Meryl Streep, The Hours
    Julianne Nicholson & Juliette Lewis, August: Osage County
    Sandra Oh, Sideways
    Christina Ricci, Monster
    Carey Mulligan, Shame
    Regina King, Ray
    Tilda Swinton, I am Love
    Paymaan Maadi, A Separation
    Laura Linney, The Truman Show
    James McAvoy, Atonement
    Glenn Close, Reversal of Fortune
    Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road
    Song Kang-ho, Parasite
    Michelle Yeoh, Crazy Rich Asians & Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    Ashton Sanders, Moonlight
    Ethan Hawke, First Reformed
    Evan Rachel Wood, Thirteen & Across the Universe

    Anne Hathaway was amazing in that movie, but I always thought of Barks being the heart of that movie. I feel bad for saying this because Barks would have done a better job then any of them. But I feel like if a bigger star got that part. They could have easily gotten a nomination. Its a shame because Samantha Barks was so good. Hooper did wacky things with that movie in general
