    Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs. While his performance was amazing and his Oscar was well deserved, you can’t deny that his role in that film was purely supporting. The film is 138 minutes in length and Hopkins is on screen for less than 11% of it.

    It didn’t feel like it… And since he was the main male character/actor, it made sense.

    But if his screentime is so low, then it was definitely a fraud.

    I was shocked at how low Hopkins’ screen time was too. His presence is felt even when Hopkins is not on screen and I think that is why I thought that he was on the screen a lot longer.

    A post in the BA thread disputing the notion that Blunt in A Quiet Place being put for BSA is category fraud made me wonder…are there performances that get accused of category fraud so often and so adamantly by GD posters that it becomes an accepted truth that you actually disagree with and believe they were put in the right category?

    ^ Yes! A star is (re)born! Welcome back, doll.

    What an iconic look, Cammie.

    I couldn’t leave you and others during these difficult times. Also I still have BFCA to diss this Sunday.

    And thank you, that scene in The Mask was one of the best introductions of a movie star in the history of cinema. Truly iconic.

    Why do you always make new accounts? Like you forget the passwords or what?

    I didn’t even know Steinfeld was an Oscar nominee. Wow

    Biggest category frauds

    Julia Roberts in August: Osage County

    Alicia Vickander in the Danish girl

    Rooney Mara in Carol

    Unpopular opinion… I feel like Viola Davis was supporting in Fences

    Hailee is a wonderful actress. o see big things for her. and she can sing, which means she will probably star in a big musical one day

    If you have four main actors, they are all leads (Closer, Carnage, Women in Love, etc.) A Quiet Place cast is all leading. Case closed.

    Ensemble films have always confused the Oscars. In 1983 the whole cast of The Big Chill was advertised as supporting. You could also argue they were all lead.

    In my book, category fraud would be to submit Emily Blunt to lead but Millicent Simmons to supporting. Since they’re both supporting, I don’t mind.

    Is there such thing as category fraud in TV ?

    Take How to get away with murder for exemple, only Viola is submitted to lead but everyone pretty much has equal screen time. Same with Jane the Virgin.

    Just wondering…

    Well the thing is all the other actors or actresses can leave the show and it will still be the same.Viola on the other hand is irrepleacable.

    The placememts for This Is Us make no sense at all.

    I’d argue that show has 5 Leads.

    I havent seen that show but for example placing Lisa Krudow in supporting at the emmys is category fraud
