    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

    I didn’t say that being a Brit didn’t matter. If is a tight race, that can sometimes put your over the top.

    Amy was probably 3rd at BAFTA or maybe even 4th. Obviously The Favourite was the big brit film that year. Vice missed put in the big categories.

    Weisz, Stone then it was either Adams or Foy.

    I’m sure that Weisz winning BAFTA did have alot to do with her being a Brit and her film being a major nominee that year. I just don’t think she was undeniable if Stone was in Lead.

    I also think it helped Weisz that she didn’t win for The Constant Gardener. So she had a bit of overdue factor from her home country.

    1996: Diane Keaton & Meryl Streep for “Marvin’s Room”
    Streep was nominated at the Golden Globes and Keaton at SAGs – both in leading category. At the Oscars only the former was nominated for more awards-friendly role.

    1998: Rachel Griffiths & Emily Watson for “Hilary & Jackie”
    I haven’t seen it yet but I read a few times that Griffiths was a category fraud. And she got top billing too!

    2002: Nicole Kidman & Meryl Streep for “The Hours”
    Streep was almost certainly sixth in that race and had “Adaptation.” nod in supporting as a consolation prize. Moore should’ve been lead too but she had “Far from Heaven” that year so she frauded into supporting.

    2006: Anne Hathaway & Meryl Streep for “Devil Wears Prada”
    Not that Hathaway was in the running but construction of the film allowed them both to compete in this race.

    2006: Cate Blanchett & Judi Dench for “Notes for a Scandal”
    It’s seen through Dench’s character POV but it’s a blurry line for Blanchett, TBH. I get why she’s in supporting but I also get why people are talking about category fraud here.

    2009: Amy Adams & Meryl Streep for “Julie & Julia”
    The same as with Hathaway/Streep.

    2010: Annette Bening & Julianne Moore for “The Kids Are All Right”
    Both were legitimately lead character so kudos to Moore for sticking to that this time even if that meant she was snubbed.

    2011: Viola Davis & Emma Stone for “The Help”
    The same as with Hathaway/Streep and Adams/Streep.

    2013: Julia Roberts & Meryl Streep for “August. Osage County”
    If Julia’s role had been written for a man, he would compete in Best Actor.

    2015: Cate Blanchett & Rooney Mara for “Carol”
    Disgusting category fraud. I think if they had balls to submit both actresses in lead, Mara would’ve been nominated over Jennifer Lawrence.

    2018: Olivia Colman & Emma Stone for “The Favorite”
    I can live with Weisz in supporting but movie has a VERY CLEAR arc for Emma Stone’s character and I’d argue she’s more of a lead than Olivia Colman’s queen. I think Volvi Cup for Colman and Stone’s recent Oscar win lead to that separation.

    I think that’s it unless you count film that got no Best Actress nomination in the end (for example “Death Becomes Her” or “Carnage” – very clear that both Hawn/Streep and Foster/Winslet were equal there).

    Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett for Carol. Easily

    I think the Academy needs to step in with cases of extreme category fraud.

    FYC

    Best Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Best Actress: Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)

    Carol with Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett. Mara had a strong chance on the lead nom

    Notes on a Scandal with Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett. Though I love my Queen of Acting, the supporting nod should have been in the lead. But the 2007 leading ladies was strong bunch: Streep, Mirren, Dench, Cruz and Winslet. The weakest link being Winslet, I think

    In both movies, Blanchett has a sublime on screen chemistry with both Mara and Dench

    Switch Blanchett and Streep. Streep isn’t lead.

    August: Osage County is the most guilty of this. There’s no way that Julia was supporting. The other women in the movie were supporting, but Meryl and Julia were both leads.

    FYC: Vanessa Kirby - Pieces of a Woman

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

    Pls. Not this Amy Adams delusion again. She definitely wasn’t second when she couldn’t even win SAG against a vote split and two Oscar snubbed Actresses.

    I don’t know if this is true but I’ve heard Streep had her FYC advertising reduced so that Keaton would have the better shot at a nomination for Marvin’s Room.

    So who was second? Cause neither Weisz nor Stone could win with the same circumstances. Lol.

    Weisz won BAFTA, with Stone and Amy there. So she most likely was the Runner-up. But Amy definitely wasn’t.

    Sure. Whatever you say.

    Once again, even with Wiesz winning BAFTA, there is no excuse why she didn’t win SAG.

    I think Wiesz lost SAG because an overlooked sentiment grew for Emily Blunt, like it had with Idris Elba a few years before.
