    All of Frances McDormand Oscars

    All of Mahershala Ali Oscars

    Regina King was also a nothing performance in Beale Street.

    I’m not sure how loved it is but I firmly disagree with Hilary Swank winning for Million Dollar Baby. Kate Winslet was nominated for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and that is enough to justify my opinion.

    Honey, how did Kathryn Hunter steal the show in TTOM with like 15 minutes of screentime against McDormand?! She was phenomenal in 3B, okay in Nomadland, okay in Fargo, but just got lapped in TTOM. Her husband directed it too which is even more funny to me.

    I agree

    Frances is my girl and I’m gonna stick besides her regardless

    I don’t sure these were loved. Most people don’t know who they are. Young people only know him as Blade and even though she won 4 Oscars, she is not a movie star. I suppose the worst wins were Tom Hanks. He was Worldwide adored in the 1990s but the New generations don’t care about Tom Hanks and some even hate him. I saw a lot of crazy conspiracy theories against Tom Hanks very recently

    I find Olivia the least leading of the three because Emma and Rachel’s actions and their rivalry was the principal focus and they had a greater hand at shifting the narrative compared to Olivia’s charachter. I may be in a minority though.

    I felt the same way. But I don’t think Rachel or Emma or both were leads. Just that they had more focus than Colman, which was definitely a more peripheral character, with less development. IMO, they were all supporting each other and all three lacked screentime. The category fraud to me was Colman in lead.

    The Artist for Best Picture.  I’ve seen the movie and I didn’t think it was the Best Picture.

    I love Nomadland but didn’t think Frances McDormand’s performance spells Oscars.

    Bohemian Rhapsody winning Film Editing was a head scratcher.

    Emma Stone for La La Land.  I was hoping either Isabelle Huppert (Elle) or Ruth Negga (Loving) would win.

    Frances McDormand in Fargo, and I loved her performance! I just found Emily Watson and Brenda Blethyn more deserving.

    I agree with you and I would have ranked Frances maybe fourth at best.

    Frances McDormand – Fargo – WINNER
    Brenda Blethyn – Secrets & Lies
    Diane Keaton – Marvin’s Room
    Kristin Scott Thomas – The English Patient
    Emily Watson – Breaking the Waves

    I did not care for L.A. Confidential and I did not care for Kim Basinger’s win. My vote would have been for Julianne Moore or Joan Cusack, but Debbi Morgan should have been nominated for Eve’s Bayou.

    Kim Basinger – L.A. Confidential – WINNER
    Joan Cusack – In & Out
    Minnie Driver – Good Will Hunting
    Julianne Moore – Boogie Nights
    Gloria Stuart – Titanic

    I know that a lot of people love La La Land and Emma Stone’s performance in this movie, but I thought Emma was more deserving for The Favourite. My vote would have been for Isabelle Huppert.

    Emma Stone La La Land
    Isabelle Huppert Elle
    Ruth Negga Loving
    Natalie Portman Jackie
    Meryl Streep Florence Foster Jenkins

    I love Helen Mirren and she’s fine in The Queen but I’d definitely have given her Oscar to either Judi Dench in Notes on a Scandal or Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada.

    Or even Penelope Cruz in Volver.

    Mirren was great in The Queen but her performance was far from the best in that lineup.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    And that was one of the biggest sweeps in history, every major precursor, the Trifecta, NBR, Volpi Cup and 20+ critics circle wins.

    Meryl should have swept BSA for Devil Wears Prada.

    That would have been one of the worst category frauds in recent Oscar history. Anne Hathaway may have been the principal lead but Meryl was unquestionably a lead as well in that film.

    Would it be though? I’d say she could go either way for that role. Anne Hathaway is definitely the POV character.
