    Since 2003 (when the Critics Choice began choosing nominees), there have been six actresses who didn’t make it in at any major precursors (Golden Globes, Critics Choice, SAG, or BAFTA) but still slid into the lineup on Oscar morning. Which of these surprise nominations was the best?

    Definetly Shohreh Aghdashloo. Her performance was absolutely fantastic and shouldve won. I still can’t believe she lost.

    On a side note: Marina de Tavira is not only an excellent actress and did a terrific job in Roma, but she also was so sweet during awards season. Loved every interview she did.

    She is in the Lisa Joy movie and I’m very excited for her. Maybe a 2nd Oscar nomination is coming?

    Shohreh Aghdashloo was a shocker? In what world?

    She didn’t get nominated for any precursors. Before the Oscar nominations she was only a Critics and Spirit Awards thing. She shouldve won but her nomination was definetly not a slam dunk.

    The craziest Actress nomination shocker for me was Jacki Weaver for SLPlaybook – it was my “wt*” nod of the last decade.

    But Shohreh Aghdashloo was the best/most deserving one for me. What a performance. And then Laura Dern comes close for being so memorable with so little screentime in Wild.

    For those following that season, she was not a shocker. She won LA and NY, for crying out loud!

    So did Ethan Hawke (“First Reformed”) and look how that turned out

    Girl, I literally said she was only a critics thing before the nominations – which includes her wins at LAFCA and NYFCC. And please…just because you win those critics doesn’t mean you’re getting nominated for an Oscar. Her nomination was a surprise from the point she didn’t get nominated for any precursor.

    At least she was in the Awards Conversation compared to the other women listed in the poll who literally had NOTHING with them going to the Oscars.
