    After rewatching Captain Marvel, I actuly enjoyed Brie Larson’s performance.

    She was like a less sexual Tony Stark imo.

    Since there seems to be a lot of Larson hate recently, this feels like a fitting forum to state that I think Brie Larson is one of the most talented actresses of her generation. Although I may support Ronan for Best Actress in 2015, Larson was an exceptional winner for Room and easily one of the best of the decade (definitely better than 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017). That line-up was stacked anyways, so anyone besides Lawrence would’ve been phenomenal. Likewise, Larson should have gotten a nomination for Short Term 12 in 2013. Such an endearing and powerful performance that got snubbed when it was significantly better than the likes of what Adams and Streep gave us. Larson has standout supporting performances in Scott Pilgrim, The Spectacular Now, and 21 Jump Street and was a great addition to the MCU as Captain Marvel.

    The hate she receives on Gold Derby is mostly from Ronan stans and entitled Marvel fanboys, all of which is incredibly unnecessary and tends to ignore the actual talent exhibited in her performances. As someone who actively supports inclusion within the film industry (despite her work often being misconstrued as “man hating”) and advocates for sexual assault survivors, she deserves a tremendous amount of respect and admiration. I expect her to be one of the biggest stars in the years to come and hope that she will become more widely appreciated.

    Despite the movie being hard to get through and my vote being for Blanchett, Larson is still a pretty good winner. Though, the idea of Woodley in that movie is too good to ignore and I feel utterly robbed.

    What makes you believe Peter Finch is supporting? I may be wrong but I rewatched the film recently and he´s even more lead than Holden and Dunaway.

    He felt more supporting for me. He was the main point of there being a “Network” but I felt like he was only on screen to deliver his lines, then he I would totally forget about him. I wouldn’t mind both of them being nominated in lead but I felt he was talked about more than he appeared in the film. But that could also make a good case of him being lead. Although it felt like Holden was gone for a hot minute, he was basically the ending, besides the final scene of course. I felt Faye Dunaway throughout most of the film.

    Fair point.Your point is what makes me believe he´s lead but I understand where you are going.

    -Bette Davis in Dangerous, Joan Fontaine in Suspicion and Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins are the worst Best Actress winners.
    -Jodie Foster in The Silence of The Lambs is one of the most overrated performances of all time.She just found the right role and stole Sarandon´s oscar.Her performance in The Accused was miles better.
    -Jessica Lange deserved her two oscars more than Maggie Smith did.
    -Helen Hunt in As Good As It Gets is the best female comedic performance to win, after Olivia Colman in The Favourite.
    -Elizabeth Taylor deserved the oscar over Shirley MacLaine.
    -Jack Nicholson was awful in As Good As It Gets and About Schmidt.His oscar for Terms of Endearment was forgettable too, can´t say if it was deserved or not yet.
    -Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl did it MUCH better than Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club.
    -Neither Dianne Wiest and Uma Thurman deserved to win best supporting actress in 1995.Jennifer Tilly did.
    -Bonnie & Clyde is overrated and BORING.
    -Sandra Bullock did us all a HUGE favour by winning that damn oscar.Sidibe and Mulligan were never happening which would lead to Streep winning for that horrendous Julie & Julia.

    Just to be clear I also think Larson is a good winner. While she was not my personal choice for that year (Blanchett was), I still think she killed that role. My comment about Woodley was just an observation since the role is similar (but more emotional) to the one she plays in BLL.

    This is the truth. Marvel fanboys are the worst.

    I would have to see Shailene play Brie’s part in Room.

    I can easily imagine Shaileene in this role, this role is not even so difficult to play, most of the actresses who were considered before Brie was cast probably would have delivered a good a performance as she did …

    Agreed. To add on further, I would consider Leto to be one of the worst supporting actor wins this decade. His performance was a mockery of transgender individuals and misrepresented said demographic entirely. Beyond the blatant insensitivity of the role itself, Leto stumbled as an actor throughout the entirety of the film. I wouldn’t label the performance as atrocious by any means, but I was not as impressed as the Academy clearly was. Fassbender and Cooper were much better that year, and Gandolfini, Stanfield, Bruhl, and (Chris) Cooper all would have been better nominees anyways.

    Speaking of Best Supporting Actor, besides Bale (’10), Plummer (’11), and Simmons (’14), I haven’t been wowed by any of the winners this decade. Rylance (’15) and Ali (’16) were fairly strong, but Waltz (’12) and Ali (’18) were obvious category fraud. Rockwell’s (’17) win has aged like milk. Tommy Lee Jones (’12), Michael Fassbender (’13), Idris Elba (’15), and Willem Dafoe (’17) all would’ve made for a better group of winners. This category is always the most disappointing. That’s a pretty significant statement, considering that the Best Actor category hasn’t really hit the mark recently. I miss the days of greatness with the Bardem, Ledger, Waltz streak.

    Ugh, I can’t tell you how much I agree with this. I will never understand his sweep and Harrelson’s nomination. I’d go more in depth about that, but it’d be a published novel. In regards to the rest of your post, there aren’t enough like buttons in the world to contain my reaction. The way Fassbender and Cooper were ignored in the lineup (and others outside) while Leto swept on such a stereotype is eye rolls for years.
