    It’s not that Mulligan’s performance was bad, per se, it’s just that her overzealous stans made it impossible to root for her to win. Her role was good but it wasn’t as undeniable, bold, or risky as some wanted us to believe. PYW’s screenplay is more overrated than the central lead. Fennell’s direction was the film’s strong point.

    Yeah, even though I loved the movie and the screenplay, the direction is clearly the best thing about it.

    Thank goodness the directors branch showed good taste and nominated Fennell.

    Not complaining about her screenplay win because it was an excellently written script and she was very deserving but I always feel like the academy tends to avoid awarding female directors the win by giving them consolation screenplay prizes? They did a similar thing with Coppola as well, the only difference being that unlike Fennell, Coppola’s screenplay win was undeserving.

    I think it has to do with the fact that the Oscars don’t like rewarding bold female performances as well. I mean, there’s Carey, but Rosamund Pike and Margot Robbie were examples from this decade of bold, often morally ambiguous female characters who lost Best Actress to a much safer performance (or a previous winner in Margot’s case). And I can keep going back with this. Jill Clayburgh in An Unmarried Woman, while her performance isn’t bold in the traditional sense nor is her character morally ambiguous, delivers an unabashedly feminist one. She gave one of my favorite performances of all time, and yet she loses to Jane Fonda in Coming Home. I’ll tell you just from personal experience that nobody I have talked to about these two films thinks Jane was actually better than Jill. Furthermore, Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under the Influence, who was actually expected to win having won the Globe for Drama Actress, lost to Ellen Burstyn in Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. And while that film was very ahead of its time in a lot of ways, Burstyn gave a more traditional/palatable performance. It seems like everyone thinks Rowlands was better, and her performance was bolder. And while we do get our Kathy Bateses and Natalie Portmans every once in a while, whey only come once in a blue moon, and it’s usually when they have no other option. If they don’t have to give it to the bold female performance, they won’t. It’s the sad truth

    Jared Leto may be a creep but he’s also a mediocre af actor who lacks an ability to emotionally transform in his “transformational” performances.

    agree Leto is overrated.

    I know her screen-time was limited, but Margot Robbie’s performance in OUATIH was better than her performance in Bombshell.

    Mulligan is a fantastic actress who was miscast in Promising Young Woman, a film that I genuinely thought could have been far more vicious and scathing. There’s this great article which basically says everything I think about the film. Still, with Manks and Trial of the Chicago 7s stinking up the lineup, it was hard for me to begrudge PYW getting in.

    Unpopular hmmm. Amy Adams deserved to win for Junebug but the only other nom she deserved was Arrival.

    August: Osage County is actually one of the performances Meryl Streep did deserve the nod for. 100% scene-chewing, but there was a good reason for it & I know people exactly like that. It’s a pretty great film and it should’ve gotten even more acting nominations: Julianne Nicholson, Juliette Lewis, Chris Cooper.

    Is this unpopular? It’s a fantastic win! I know people thought Russell Crowe would take his consecutive Oscar and the narrative seemed to be that he lost because he’d berated the BFAA producer for cutting off his acceptance speech, but Denzel deserved this thru and thru. Tom Wilkinson is my 2nd fave in the category, but a distant 2nd.

    I feel this way about Russell Crowe and GLADIATOR. But that is not unpopular. Russell Crowe is very hated in my Proffesional circles but when I talk with normal and simple people, GLADIATOR is One of Very Few Movies that normal people love

    Directors prefer flashier Directing. Especially the DGAs usually prefer flashier Directors. I think that’s why Bigelow is The only female Director who won. Her Directing style is great action scenes and a lot of tension and suspense
