    Based on screentimecentral.com, here are the movies with multiple actresses nominated with over a third of the screentime after 1991:

    Favourite 48% 42% 36%

    Notes on a Scandal 61% 56%

    Carol 60% 55%

    Sense and Sensibility 55% 44%

    August Osage County 47% 44%

    Boys Don’t Cry 62% 43%

    Secrets and Lies 43% 43%

    Hilary and Jackie 55% 36%

    Doubt 50% 35%

    The strategy these days is almost always to prevent co-stars from competing in lead (with Kids Are All Right as a major exception). Which if any of the films might have scored multiple lead noms if the campaign had tried to?

    The Favourite, easily. Stone could have taken Aparicio or McCarthy’s spot. Btw if Stone had been placed in lead, I think the supporting actress race would have been a loooot tighter and may have ended up on a win for Weisz (that performance really was undeniable and I think it could have beaten King’s narrative).

    Weisz would have never won. If she was so undeniable, she would have won the SAG when King was snubbed.

    But Stone was in the same category as her. She had to overcome the vote-splitting. With Stone out of the equation, the win would have been easier imo.

    She was able to overcome Stone at BAFTA without King there.

    Secrets & Lies, please!

    It should win Best Actress for Brenda Blethyn and get MJB nominated in the same category. This film is a story about both and, yeah, both have equal screentime.

    Besides, this film deserved the top prize too. Had they realized that it’s the perfect time to honour Mike Leigh, it would’ve been amazing.

    I think being British helped.

    Stone isn’t an English Rose the way she is in US. Meanwhile, Weisz is always a phenomenon.

    In the last 10 years, only 3 brits have won this category. Again, if she was so undeniable she would have easily won at SAG over the unnominated Blunt.

    In the last 10 years, most of the British actresses nominated at BAFTA weren’t the frontrunners of their race.

    In 2011 : Dench and Mulligan weren’t nominated.

    In 2012 : Dench wasn’t nominated.

    In 2013 : No Brits.

    In 2014 : Staunton wasn’t nominated. Knightley was but she was a longshot for the win.

    In 2015 : Winslet won.

    In 2016 : Squires wasn’t nominated.

    In 2017 : Manville was a suprise nom and Scott Thomas wasn’t nominated.

    In 2018 : Weisz won.

    In 2019 : Pugh was nominated but that Oscar was Dern’s from the start.

    So saying that being British doesn’t help is both true and untrue. It does help when you have a good chance at the Oscar like Winslet and Weisz did, it doesn’t when your film isn’t strong. And The Favourite WAS strong (10 noms at the Oscars).

    And again, vote-splitting hurt her at SAG.

    Weisz was 3rd at best at the Oscars. Amy Adams was second.

    It’s reversed for me. But agree to disagree although I’m interested in why you put Amy 2nd.

    Overdue factor. Weisz and Stone already had Oscars. Marina de Tavira was just lucky to be invited to the party lol.

    I’m not saying Amy deserved to be second, not a huge fan of this film or performance.

    I would have liked to have seen Claire Foy take the Oscar that year.

    Hm. According to your logic where being a Brit doesn’t really matter for a win at BAFTA, why didn’t Amy win ? It was her 7th nomination and the fourth one as BSA
