Maggie Smith in the Harry Potter saga (nerd alert!). Marion Cotillard in Inception. Barbara Hershey in Black Swan. And ultimately, the biggest supporting actress of all supporting actresses: Beatrice Straight.September 3, 2014 at 7:07 am #160433
All those supporting women in Black Swan were amazing.September 3, 2014 at 7:09 am #160434
I didn’t mention Mila Kunis because she had a very decent amount of screentime… She should have been nominated for an Oscar.September 3, 2014 at 7:15 am #160435
I would have prefer Barbra Hersey or Winona Ryder but Kunis was great tooSeptember 3, 2014 at 7:59 am #160436

Sally Hawkins in blue jasmine had no baity scenes and was present throughout the film. She didn’t need to scream or cry to give a great performance….. she gave the most natural and the best supporting performance in 2013.September 3, 2014 at 10:09 pm #160440
Can we talk about these women, please? I’m in love with real supporting lady performances.
When I’m talking about real supporting lady performances I’m thinking on ladies who’s not cameos, but only having a small screetime and a small role itself. So it’s not the Anne Hathaway-type-of supporting performance, when her character had her own storyline.
I’m thinking on performances like Jacki Weaver in “Silver Linings Playbook”. Or Helen McCrory in “Hugo”. And my ultimate favorite Donna Pescow in “Saturday Night Fever” (Oscar-worthy!)
Women who have barely anything to do on screen by themselves, they never have scenes on their own, they are just popping up in others. There are many of these women, but only a few can make such an impression. I mentioned three. What about you?
The Donna Pescow mention is incredible. I saw that movie for the first time 3 years ago and then I searched to see if she had one an Oscar for that performance and turns out she was never nominated…. I was upset about that.
Id say that Jennifer Jason Leigh and Judy Pariff in Dolores Claiborn deserve mentionings. Clearly the best cast that year and a horrible yea for snubs. Best Supporting Actress should have been a battle between Leigh and Parriff that year.September 4, 2014 at 4:12 pm #160442This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 4, 2014 at 4:15 pm #160443This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 4, 2014 at 4:17 pm #160444
