    Most people would agree about Alicia Vikander and Viola Davis in 2016 and 2017. In my opinion, Alicia Vikander is the lead in The Danish Girl (however her win was actually well deserved).

    Hailee Steinfeld was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in True Grit despite the fact that she is literally in every scene.

    Catharine Zeta-Jones in Chicago (she and Zellweger were co leads).

    Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain (he and Ledger were co leads).

    All time is Tatum O’Neal for Paper Moon.

    People complain about Vikander but both Emma Stone and Mahersala Ali this year blow her out of the water in terms of being a LEAD.

    Rooney Mara in Carol was awful too.

    Amy Adams needs more recognition for not submitting supporting for Nocturnal Animals a couple years back. She mightve very well got a nom but she chose not to even though she already had a leading vehicle that year in Arrival. Makes that Arrival snub sting all the more.

    Emily blunt is fraudently submitting supporting in A Quiet Place since she has Mary Poppins

    Viola Davis is probably the worst I’ve seen.

    Viola Davis is not the worst at category fraud.

    The worst at category fraud are the following:

    Tatum O’Neil for Paper Moon
    Hailee Steinfeld for True Grit

    Ethan Hawke in Training Day and Rooney Mara in Carol are just utterly mind-boggling.

    I haven’t seen Fences.

    Actually, the worst of all time is Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    Jack Albertson in The Subject Was Roses is actually worse than Hutton- he was in 58% of his film, versus the latter’s 52%.

    Also have to include Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker, who was in 61% of her film, just behind O’Neal’s 65%.

    Haing S. Ngor was a lead in The Killing Fields.

    Julia Roberts in August: Osage County

    A reverse case was Patricia Neal in Hud. That was baffling. She’s barely in it but for some reason went lead. (I mean it worked and she got a Best Actress Oscar but still it seems odd.)
