    Meryl Streep won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical and tied with Sandra Bullock at Critics Choice whilst Carey Mulligan won the BAFTA when Sandra Bullock was snubbed. Who was second in the race that year and how close were they to beating Bullock?

    I actually think it was Gabourey Sidibe because Precious overperformed at the Awards in general and surprisingly won Screenplay when Up in the Air was considered one of the biggest locks of the night. Also Mo’Nique won so you know actors supported the film.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    It was propably Sidibe, since Academy went crazy for Precious even giving it Adapted Screenplay in a huge upset.

    I’m not convinced it was either of them. I think it easily could have been Gabourey Sidibe from Precious. She did win the Independent Spirit award and didn’t really miss nominations. Also, Precious winning the Adapted Screenplay Oscar showed wider support than just Mo’Nique. I think it was very close among those 3. I think Mirren was definitely 5th, but 2-4 was very close. Nobody really took the lead overall. Streep won NY and Globe and Mulligan won NSFC and BAFTA. But then you have Sidibe with the Spirit and many breakthrough performer wins in a film with multiple Oscars.

    You know damn well Streep was runner-up to the very undeserving Bullock. Neither of them should’ve been ahead of Gabourey Sidibe. Her performance in Precious was a revelation.

    That year’s outcome… at least we have An Education and Precious to appreciate.
    Oh, and probably Meryl. Huge wave of support after TDWP and Doubt.

    I know many preferred Sidibe but I think they would have given it to Streep.

    Imagine being Helen Mirren that year showing up knowing she’s definitely 5th

    I do think Streep was 2nd, although I would’ve voted for Mulligan among the nominees.

    My personal vote would’ve been Kim Hye-ja for MOTHER.

    I do have to say that I was quite charmed by JULIE & JULIA. I would even say it’s one of the very few of the surge of Streep nominations in recent years that I supported.

    Second should have been Gabourey Sidibe, but it was probably Streep. I would placed Streep fourth in the lineup. Mulligan would be a strong third and Mirren would be fifth in votes. My preferences were as follows:

    1. Sidibe
    2. Mulligan
    3. Streep
    4. Mirren
    5. Bullock

    You guys are overreacting to Up in the Air’s loss in screenplay. Its director was involved in controversy over screen credit. So a lot of people didn’t want to see him win.

    Same here.
