    I had an idea for a fun little challenge/experiment, where you take the four Oscar-winning roles of each year and hypothetically recast them with other actors who have never been Oscar nominated (or if it’s easier to think of, nominated but never won) that you think would’ve fit well. Here’s what I’ve come up with for my personal lineups of the last five years (I’m only going to cast for the movies I’ve seen, so if a role is left out it’s because I haven’t seen the movie yet):

    2019
    Paul Dano as Arthur Fleck
    Drew Barrymore as Judy Garland
    Bruce Campbell as Cliff Booth
    Julie Delpy as Nora Fanshaw

    2018
    Sacha Baron Cohen as Freddie Mercury
    Lena Headey as Queen Anne
    Jeffrey Wright as Dr. Don Shirley
    Kerry Washington as Sharon Rivers

    2017
    Jamie Lee Curtis as Mildred Hayes (the idea that inspired this whole challenge)
    Colin Farrell as Officer Jason Dixon
    Margo Martindale as LaVona Golden

    2016
    Ewan McGregor as Lee Chandler
    Amanda Seyfried as Mia Dolan
    Michael Kenneth Williams as Juan

    2015
    Ben Foster as Hugh Glass
    Kristen Stewart as Joy ‘Ma’ Newsome

    Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill could’ve been interesting, although I dare say there’s a whole range of actors who could’ve played him.

    Any decent trans actress as Rayon would’ve been preferable to Jared Leto.

    I don’t know about Kidman. Dern won cause she was overdue and on a hot streak. Kidman doesn’t have any real narrative. Robbie more than likely would’ve reaped the rewards.
