What annoys me about both her victories is how formidable her competition was both times. And she’s not a real leading lady if we’re going there.
Another unpopular opinion is that I don’t think her competition was that formidable the second time. Sally knocked it off the park but she was the only one who was robbed imo. Ronan was overrated, Streep didn’t deserve a #4 for this (though I liked her performance) and Robbie was fine (she’ll inevitably win one anyway)
My ranking that year was Sally > Frances > Margot > Saoirse > Meryl
And it doesn’t matter whether she’s a real leading lady or not. She led the hell out of 3BB and completely carried an otherwise very flawed movie (unlike Fargo where she was absent for half of the film)February 23, 2020 at 5:15 am #1203357267
Argo, The Artist, and Green Book deserved. Just not The King’s Speech.February 23, 2020 at 8:21 am #1203357412
Micheal Keaton losing Best Actor to The Theory of Oscar Bait is one of the worst losses, how tragic
I like Redmayne, but him winning was so obviously just because he had a baity role. It was insulting to see Birdman sweep but not bringing along the man who held it all together. On the bright side though, Keaton’s film and performance will be remembered and cherished while most people will never care about Theory of Everything.February 23, 2020 at 1:21 pm #1203357767
Cold War should’ve been nominated for Best PictureFebruary 23, 2020 at 2:14 pm #1203357801
Chris Pine should’ve been nominated for Into the Woods. Even with the unforgivable removal of Agony’s reprise (for anyone whose only seen the film, it’s just as funny as the first one) and how they didn’t have him double as The Wolf (almost all professional productions do this), he still made a delightful and hilarious impression as Cinderella’s Prince.February 23, 2020 at 2:45 pm #1203357813
Star Trek Into Darkness is the best Star Trek film. Benedict Cumberbatch deserved to be in competition for Best Supporting Actor.
May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.February 23, 2020 at 3:56 pm #1203357886
The King’s Speech would’ve been a better movie if it had been directed by Kenneth Branagh.February 24, 2020 at 7:11 am #1203358438
She had a great accent lol. Many people praised it. And that’s not what name check means.
“a public mention or listing of the name of a person or thing such as a product, especially in acknowledgment or for publicity purposes.” it is literally exactly what name-check means.
Sorry but in this scene her accent has many bum moments. Also, you better believe in a movie they’re able to pick and choose your best moments. So imagine what the worse moments of accent were… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZcmfV9Rd0A
I love Stone! I think she’s fantastic in La La Land. And her acting is really good in The Favourite. But I don’t think it’s Oscar-worthy because she seemed a little out of place in the period, and also her accent wasn’t precise.February 24, 2020 at 7:12 am #1203358442
I’ll go further and say she is better as an actress than a director or writer, and that is saying something. I want to see her in a lead actress role again, something that she can put what she’s learned from directing back into her performances.
I agree!!! She’s fantastic in Frances Ha. Greta for me is Actress > Writer > Director.February 24, 2020 at 7:52 am #1203358525

I agree with this as a huge fan of her directorial work, she was amongst the best working comedic actresses, only a handful could measure up to her timing and delivery
