You can name more than one actor/actress for each year.October 3, 2020 at 5:14 pm #1203757396
First that comes to mind in terms of nominations is Ralph Fiennes missing out for Grand Budapest Hotel.
Granted, it’s not the most awards friendly performance, but there’s nothing about his work in that film that I don’t adore.October 3, 2020 at 5:17 pm #1203757402
Lupita Nyong’o – Us
Song Kang-Ho – Parasite
Imagine outacting most of the nominees in all categories yet still being sidelined
Best Actress - Viola Davis
Best Actor - Delroy Lindo, Chadwick Boseman
Best Supp Actor - Daniel Kaluuya, Yahya Abdul-Mateen IIOctober 3, 2020 at 5:19 pm #1203757412
1. Amy Adams in Arrival
2. Amy Adams in Arrival
3. Amy Adams in ArrivalOctober 3, 2020 at 5:29 pm #1203757431
I mean, they rarely get it right. Out of those who got close and deserved a nomination, I’d say Ralph Fieness is a good choice.October 3, 2020 at 5:33 pm #1203757444
From last year, out of those who stood a chance:
Best Actor: Robert De Niro – The Irishman
Best Actress: Lupita Nyong’o – Us
Best Supporting Actor: Song Kang Ho – Parasite although I consider him lead
Best Supporting Actress: Margot Robbie – Once Upon a Time In HollywoodOctober 3, 2020 at 5:34 pm #1203757449

I literally forgot one of the biggest snubs in Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler. Idk how I forgot that one lolOctober 3, 2020 at 5:41 pm #1203757467
Awkwafina, The Farewell
Zhao Shuzhen, The FarewellOctober 3, 2020 at 5:49 pm #1203757486
Awkwafina, The Farewell Zhao Shuzhen, The Farewell
I would’ve easily taken Zhao over any of the supporting actress nominees last year.
Oh yes, that was embarassing
And lmao tell me about it. Idris performance was one of the best that year and he literally got in everywhere else (including a win at Sag), but the academy just said “nah” and moved on so they could nominate Hardy instead smh.October 3, 2020 at 6:03 pm #1203757523
Ethan Hawke in first reformed. Imo he was better than the whole category that year.
Joaquin having to become a clown to win an Oscar when The master exists.
Alfre Woodard in Clemency. Best actress 2020 was too weak for me to accept that Alfdre couldn’t get in. Her movie was too under the radar.October 3, 2020 at 6:10 pm #1203757536
They have already been said on this thread by other people and I’ve brought it up in the past, but:
The fact that Lupita Nyong’o and Song Kang ho were snubbed when they were far and away better than anyone in those categories was truly laughable. That’s especially true in the former’s case as I don’t think any of the actual Actress nominees should’ve been considered.
Awkwafina, THE FAREWELL
Adele Haenel, PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE
Lupita Nyong’o, US
Florence Pugh, MIDSOMMAR
Alfre Woodard, CLEMENCY
Choi Woo shik, PARASITE
Willem Dafoe, THE LIGHTHOUSE
Tom Hanks, A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Al Pacino, THE IRISHMAN)
Song Kang ho, PARASITE
Oh and to add to that, Cho Yeo jeong was an easy victor for PARASITE…and to think she wasn’t even nominated while Laura Dern swept for THAT performance.
I also love the mention of Ralph Fiennes for GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.

Best Supporting Actress: Margot Robbie – Once Upon a Time In Hollywood
She probably did enough votes to nominated (convinced that the BAFTA five were the same Oscar five but because of the only 1 actor-in-1-category rule, her votes were nulled and actual 6th place vote getter Kathy Bates got nominated instead.)
