the correct question would be which one I don’t disagree with, but some big ones that come to mind: Viola Davis, Charlize Theron, Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins (TSOTL), Kathy Bates, Parasite, Nomadland…ReplyCopy URL

Ingrid Bergman’s Best Actress win for Gaslight. She’s great, but Barbara Stanwyck should’ve won for Double Indemnity. I also would’ve picked Gene Tierney in Laura over Bergman. Jane Fonda’s Best Actress win for Klute. It’s probably her best regarded performance, but I think she’s done better and that Julie Christie in McCabe and Mrs. Miller and Glenda Jackson in Sunday, Bloody Sunday were both better. Ruth Gordon in Harold and Maude would’ve been my pick if nominated. Kathy Bates winning Best Actress for Misery. A fantastic performance, but Anjelica Huston in The Grifters was even better. Marion Cotillard’s Best Actress win for La Vie En Rose. It’s a great performance, but I prefer Elliot Page in Juno and Julie Christie in Away From Her. Amy Adams in Enchanted is my personal pick, though she wasn’t nominated. Cate Blanchett’s Best Actress win for Blue Jasmine. It’s a wonderful performance, but what Sandra Bullock achieves in Gravity is unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I would’ve chosen her.ReplyCopy URL

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.
This is true. I think it’s hard to argue that Get Out is actually a better script than Three Billboards or Lady Bird.
It’s a better idea than either of them and is definitely better directed than the former, but Get Out’s main strength isn’t the actual screenplay… Kaluuya’s performance, Peele’s direction and the editing are the strengths.
The flaws of Jordan Peele as a writer come clearer in Us, when he is working with a significantly less sophisticated concept, but thinks he’s being profound.ReplyCopy URL

There are a lot of wins I disagree with, but I don’t take issue with. For instance, PSH in The Master is a better performance than Waltz in Django. Same for DiCaprio and McConaughey in Best Actor for the following year. However, I can’t get angry because the performances that win in those instances are really good.
The following are the ones that trigger me, lol.
1979. What Won: Kramer Vs. Kramer. What Should Have Won: Apocalypse Now.
1986. What Won: Platoon. What Should Have Won: A Room With A View.
1988. What Won: Rain Man. What Should Have Won: Mississippi Burning.
2001. What Won: A Beautiful Mind. What Should Have Won: Out of the nominees, Gosford Park. Outside of the nominees, Mulholland Drive.
1967. Who Won: Rod Steiger (In The Heat Of The Night). Who Should Have Won: Paul Newman (Cool Hand Luke).
1988. Who Won: Dustin Hoffman (Rain Man). Who Should Have Won: Gene Hackman (Mississippi Burning), Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers).
1991. Who Won: Anthony Hopkins (The Silence Of The Lambs). Who Should Have Won: Warren Beatty (Bugsy).
1993. Who Won: Tom Hanks (Philadelphia). Who Should Have Won: Daniel Day-Lewis (In The Name Of The Father), David Thewlis (Naked), Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List)
2000. Who Won: Russell Crowe (Gladiator). Who Should Have Won: George Clooney (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), Christian Bale (American Psycho).
2012. Who Won: Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln). Who Should Have Won: Joaquin Phoenix (The Master), Denzel Washington (Flight).
2015. Who Won: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant). Who Should Have Won: Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs), Michael B. Jordan (Creed).
2018. Who Won: Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody). Who Should Have Won: Bradley Cooper (A Star Is Born), Ethan Hawke (First Reformed).
I would have, at one stage, put The Father here, but I’ve come around to Hopkins’ turn in it. I still think Delroy Lindo or Chadwick Boseman probably should have won.
Who Won: Frances McDormand (Fargo). Who Should Have Won: Brenda Blethyn (Secrets & Lies).
Best Supporting Actor:
1997. Who Won: Robin Williams (Good Will Hunting). Who Should Have Won: Robert Forster or Samuel L. Jackson (Jackie Brown), Don Cheadle or Burt Reynolds (Boogie Nights).
2009. Who Won: Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds). (Yes, he’s good, yes, yes, yes, but I don’t think the film he’s in is half as good as he is. Literally he is the only good thing about the film. If you like the film, it’s only because Christoph Waltz is good in it. That’s not enough for me, personally.) Who Should Have Won: Michael Fassbender (Fish Tank).
Best Supporting Actress:ReplyCopy URL
1997. Who Won: Kim Basinger (LA Confidential). Who Should Have Won: Julianne Moore (Boogie Nights).
2001. Who Won: Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind). Who Should Have Won: Maggie Smith (Gosford Park).
2007. Who Won: Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton). Who Should Have Won: Saoirse Ronan (Atonement).
2016. Who Won: Viola Davis (Fences). Who Should Have Won: Michelle Williams (Manchester By The Sea), with a close second being Naomi Harris.
2018. Who Won: Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk). Who Should Have Won: Emma Stone or Rachel Weisz (The Favourite).

I got into making my own personal Oscar and later joining Gold Derby because Moonlight won over La La Land. Watched both movies again recently and I still think La La Land is better.ReplyCopy URL
