    There is nothing to understand. Amy did absolutely NOTHING in Arrival.

    Like I said, you just don’t understand. Your judgment is questionnable.

    Adams was phenomenal in Arrival and her only performance to outmatch it is in Sharp Objects, which is on a whole other level.

    I feel like this isn’t an unpopular opinion on GD, it’s been a long ass while since I’ve seen someone say she deserved the Oscar.

    Gold Derby has this problem in the Unpopular Opinion threads where they try to push an opinion about something they despise as unpopular in order to just to be able to say it when in reality it’s the opposite. For example, I don’t know how many times I’ve seen “so and so is an overrated actress” when in reality half the internet considers them an overrated bimbo.

    Girl yes, I wish there were more real discussions on the Unpopular Opinions thread as opposed to an echo chamber. It would be interesting to hear people discuss on this thread why they think a highly regarded win by almost everyone wasn’t deserving. I replied to that comment specifically bc I can count on my hand how many times people have said Janney was deserving on this site in the last year, so def not an unpopular opinion

    Darlings, you’re talking a lot about how undeserving Janney was, but however most of you stanned Regina King last year, who did literally nothing to win the dildo. That is what I call an undeserving win and not Janney’s.

    Because unlike King, Janney delivered:

    Amy Adams should’ve been nominated for her role in Her over Julia Roberts.

    Although 1995 was crowded, Angela Bassett should have DEFINITELY been a nominee for Waiting To Exhale, which also holds the record for the worst Best Original Song snubs in history.

    The tea is good today. Angela truly deserved so much more during her career. Truly an outstanding actress

    Barry Jenkins needs to cast her in some highbrow drama so she can get herself a Supporting Actress Oscar

    A tweet with the Bernie Harris car Burning / 732 scene just went viral with the caption (“Angela Bassett gave one of the most iconic scenes in movie history and the Oscars snubbed her.”)

    Clearly not an unpopular opinion and I’m glad to see that the general public has taste.

    I’m an Amy fan but she’s far from an Oscar nomination for Her.

    And the only good thing from Her is the cinematography and the story. All remaining is ranged from being boring to cringey.

    I think Shelley Duvall and Heather Donahue were Oscar worthy for The Shining and The Blair Witch Project, not Razzie worthy. Raw and real performances of fear have been unfairly criticised over the years.

    Although I’m pleased the Academy did the right thing and nominated Sigourney Weaver for Aliens, I think they missed an opportunity by ignoring her and Veronica Cartwright for the first film in the series.

    Totally!!! Especially Shelley Duvall, who was amazing in my opinion.

    the Duvall thing is really interesting. I rewatched the Shining recently and her line delivery in the first half of the movie (before everything goes wild) is straight up cringe worthy, it sounds like a came from a cheesy 50’s sitcom, but then I thought this may have been Kubrick’s intention to create atmosphere. I still don’t totally know.

    Poor Shelley Duvall shouldn’t be judged imo considering Kubrick borderline emotonally abused her while filming.

    It seems like as soon as people’s fav doesn’t win due to another performance, people on GD start panning the winning performance regardless of how good it actually was; it happened when Close won the Globe over Gaga, and also when Janney won the Globe over Metcalf. I wanted Metcalf to win more than anyone, but it’s such an overexaggeration to say that Janney did anything less than deliver . Metcalf did have way more material to draw from, but let’s not act like Janney didn’t totally elevate a character that could have easily been one note. That scene in the diner still gives me chills honestly

    Heather Donahue would have been a more deserving nominee than Meryl Streep in Music of the Heart. I said what I said

    Strange Days is Kathryn Bigelow’s best movie. Its concept is insane
