    Still can’t believe that Streep got in for that awful performance in the forgotten Florence Foster Jenkins, but Adams got snubbed for Arrival.

    My mistake, I totally missed Cotillard’s run! So sorry for the oversight.

    And Swinton.

    Cotillard in Rust and Bone I think is the only non-English-language performance to be nominated at SAG (probably the most subtitle-averse of the major awards bodies) but not at the Oscars, being pushed out by a different French-language performance.

    u forgot DiCaprio – The Departed + Winslet – Revolutionary Road as well, even if those were technicalities.

    Kate Winslet actually missed at Critics Choice for Revolutionary Road, funnily enough.

    I honestly think that’s one of her better recent performances. Perhaps she wouldn’t have made my top 5 of that year, but I preferred her Jenkins to her Margaret Thatcher, and even more so against her miscalculated performance as Violet Weston.

    Amy Adams. She literally gave one of the performances of the decade in Arrival.

    I mean I love Emma Stone and she was good in La La Land but let’s face it that Oscar should have easily gone to Amy.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Amy Adams forever and always. She should be winning that year.

    Cumberbatch and Cooper were pretty expendable that year.

    In the Ninth Dimension, where I assume this could be the only place this would ever happen, had both Cotillard and Riva been nominated, who would you say had the better performance and deserved the Oscar?

    The only silver lining is that it strengthened her overdue narrative.

    Which resulted in the barf-inducing nomination for Vice

    Excuse you. Streep was outstanding in both as and in Florence Foster Jenkins. Two of the most difficult elements of acting are comedic performances and musical performances, she excels at both here.

    Even more so, performances that are supposed to be bad are excruciatingly arduous to execute efficiently. Not even bad performers can’t give bad performances. There’s a reason why Ray Romano become one of Scorsese’s go-to players and not Kevin James.

    Furthermore, her nomination wasn’t even bad or shocking on the day. She got nominated EVERYWHERE; Hugh Grant was likely 6th; it was already guaranteed a makeup nomination and after her Globes speech, there was no way she was missing.

    It’s only looked down now because of Adams’ stans, when in reality they really should redirect the frustration towards sole nominee Ruth Negga.

    Amy Adams easily. She was the HEART and SOUL of Arrival. Critics and pre-Oscar televised shows backed her up. Her film was nominated in all key categories including Best Picture.

    I think Riva, although I haven’t watched Rust and Bone since it first came out whereas I’ve watched Amour multiple times over the years since, so maybe it’s an unfair contest. It’s just how Riva subtly encapsulates an entire life experience while we see it slowly breaking down into shards, though I’ll admit my grandmother being in a similar condition at the time added to its poignancy for me.

    Both Cotillard and Riva got in at BAFTA (Riva won), so I guess BAFTA is in the ninth dimension now. Same at Critics Choice, with six nominees.
