    I previously started a thread asking people about controversial Oscar wins they happen to defend. So out of curiosity, I thought it would be fun to start another one asking people the opposite question. Throughout all of Oscar history, what are some wins that almost everyone loves and/or thinks was the most deserving, but you personally would’ve voted for something else?

    For those wondering what my answers are, I’ve got quite a few, but I decided to list one in particular (for now): I thought Julie Andrews was (pun intended) practically perfect in every way as Mary Poppins. I’m not mad at her Oscar win at all. Though with that being said, I actually would’ve given Best Actress in 1964 to Kim Stanley for Seance on a Wet Afternoon. While it may not be best movie ever made, I found Stanley’s performance there to be incredibly haunting.

    Don’t know if Holly Hunter’s win is considered universally adored, but I personally would’ve given it to Angela Bassett.

    Olivia Colman – The Favourite, a film that doesn’t deserve any of its praise and the most overrated performance of the decade, albeit not necessarily bad.

    I will get in trouble but Louise Fletcher for “Cukoo’s Nest.” Great speech, good performance, but I wouldn’t even give her supporting actress.

    Honestly, I agree. Lead should’ve gone to Isabel Adjani.

    However, Fletcher probably would’ve won Supporting for me unless I’m forgetting a particular performance.

    Is this only about acting? Because if not, it’s hands down Get Out’s Original Screenplay win. It was 5th in that category. The unsubtle and at times even stupid screenplay was the worst aspect of the whole film. Peele was awarded for his idea more than for his screenplay.

    For Your Consideration:
    The Banshees of Inisherin in ALL categories, including:
    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Actor (Colin Farrell)
    - Best Supporting Actor (Brendan Gleeson)
    - Best Supporting Actor (Barry Keoghan)
    - Best Supporting Actress (Kerry Condon)
    - Best Supporting Actress (Sheila Flitton)
    - Best Original Screenplay

    Holly was great because she’s a great actress, but Angela’s performance is one of the best ever put on screen. Angela was robbed.

    Parasite would be my choice, i hate that movie, it was nothing special for me. Probably the most overrated movie ever. And the fact that people got so triggered about someone not liking this movie makes me hate it more.
