    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.

    FYC:

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

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

    Helen Hunt for ‘As Good As it Gets’ was an awful undeserving win. Should have gone to Kate Winslet for ‘Titanic’ that year.

    Natalie Portman in Black Swan. I think it is a good performance but I don’t understand the extreme hype. I think the film is just okay at best as well.

    If I go with the last decade, I’d say Daniel Day-Lewis does absolutely nothing for me in Lincoln. I find Joaquin Phoenix in Joker completely horrendous and I hate the film as much as his performance.

    On the actresses side, Natalie Portman happens to be very underwhelming in Black Swan for me while Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine is probably one of my top 10 least favorite nominees in acting out of the entire decade. For supporting, I think Patricia Arquette is a terrible actress and Boyhood was no exception.

    I think the case with Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada is that I kept wondering what is her character doing when she was not on screen. Also, Meryl’s character is discussed a lot when she is not on screen. This for me makes it seem like there is more screen time than there really is for Meryl’s character because of the presence (actual screen time plus discussion about her character).

    Emma Stone in La La Land. Utterly dreadful. Should’ve gone to Huppert or Negga.

    I agree with this darling… proves the Oscars prefer popularity and mediocrity over merits.

    FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION DARLING.
    Tessa Thompson, Lead Actress for PASSING
    Ruth Negga, Supporting Actress for PASSING
    Charlotte Rampling, Supporting Actress for BENEDETTA
    Martha Plimpton, Supporting Actress for MASS
    Arawinda Kirana, Lead Actress for YUNI
    Kathryn Hunter, Supporting Actress for THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH

    All of Titanic wins outside craft categories. The movie deserved every bit of that technical awards but Picture? Directing? Hell Nah!

    Some of these wins y’all calling out are fairly divisive or at least aren’t really “universally loved”.

    I will say that I think Titanic is one of the strongest BP winners ever. It’s hardly faultless and is unabashedly cheesy. But it’s blockbuster movie-making and weepy/melodramatic storytelling done really right. It ain’t an art film, but it is a borderline great movie. Would have still preferred to see LA Confidential win, which I think is one of the few best American movies of the 90s. But once again, I do consider Titanic one of the stronger winners of BP.

    Natalie Portman in Black Swan. So overrated. Some gave nerve to even call it one of the best wins ever. He’ll naw. That should have been Kidman’s Oscar.

    Any of the five women nominated that year I think would have been solid enough winners, though I suppose Lawrence was my favorite. I’m fine with Portman’s win. I don’t love it as much as others. But a good performance in at least a solid movie is about all you can ask for in that category. Blanchett, McDormand, Coleman were easily my favorite winners of that decade.
