    I think Rooney Mara is the lead in ‘Carol’. Cate Blanchett’s category placement would be so confusing; neither a lead per say but faraway from being a supporting. My preferred lineup would have been:

    Actress in a Leading Role

    Brie Larson,  Room

    Rooney Mara,  Carol

    Charlotte Rampling,  45 years  (Should have win: a performance that is breathtaking in its underlying complexity)

    Saoirse Ronan,  Brooklyn

    Charlize Theron,  Mad Max: Fury Road

    Actress in a Supporting Role

    Cate Blanchett,  Carol (Should have won: Talk about an iconic performance that enthralls viewers! Cannot imagine anybody else in her role.)

    Jennifer Jason Leigh,  The Hateful Eight

    Rachel McAdams,  Spotlight

    Kate Winslet,  Steve Jobs

    Alicia Vikander,  Ex-Machina (LOVED her in Ex Machina and was equally deserving, but not for the Danish Girl though)

    Blanchett was my favorite but Oscarless Mara should have won. Carol SHOULD have won something on top of Picture + Director noms

    Theron also should have been nominated over Lawrence’s mess

    Best Actress - Viola Davis, Frances McDormand
    Best Actor - Delroy Lindo, Chadwick Boseman
    Best Supporting Actor - Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman
    Best Picture - Nomadland

    I voted for Cate Blanchett but honestly I would’ve also supported a win from Charlotte Rampling and I think Rooney Mara should’ve been in Lead as well…not that her being lead is some sort of controversial opinion.

    I did like Larson though and felt she was worthy of the nomination.

    Charlotte Rampling. Any of them would’ve been a worthy winner except Lawrence. I’m totally fine with Larson winning but I don’t understand how she swept that year. It wasn’t the best performance in the lineup, she wasn’t an it girl, nor was she overdue.

    Room & Brooklyn were the ONLY two movies I saw and after Brie Larson’s performance, I can see why she won because she was pretty good. I really wanted Saoirse Ronan to win because she was fantastic in that film PLUS I love Irish movies

    For me, it was always baffling that Larson won an Oscar when the best part of the film and the acting MVP, Jacob Tremblay, didn’t even get a nomination.

    Ronan would have been my winner.

    There was goodwill from her Short Term 12 snub. That was a great performance.

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Nicole (The Others), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    Larson gave a bad performance, worst in the category. I actually like Lawrence’s performance; my favorite of her collaborations with Russell. Of the nominees, Rampling is an easy win for me.

    Personally, Mara should have been nominated here. Hoss should have won for Phoenix.

    Rampling! Hands down. Never seen her better. An amazing performance

    Emily Blunt – Sicario
    Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    Cate Blanchett – Carol
    Charlotte Rampling – 45 Years
    Rooney Mara – Carol

    Dark horses: Charlize Theron, Alicia Vikander,

    Charlote Rampling in 45 Years.

    This situation is kind of similar to 2013 when IMO, Riva should have defeated Lawrence and 2017, when queen Huppert shoud have won over Stone.

    But among the it girls Lawrence, Larson and Stone, the one whose win I don’t find the most sickening is definitely Larson.
