    I just think that others was better like Hawkins, Robbie, and Ronan. Plus her sweeping the season was just 😬

    Also that nominees were stacked AF. I would’ve loved to put Chastain, Lawrence, Stewart in.

    1. The film is extremely divisive. Many people have issues with the way racism was portrayed onscreen.
    2. In a lot of people’s minds, McDormand won Oscar #2 over more deserving performances, such as Saiorse Ronan’s in Lady Bird and Sally Hawkins’ in The Shape of Water.

    I don’t hate the win, but I would have voted for Robbie. Her role had the highest degree of difficulty and she killed it.

    I’ve heard many actors say that one of the easiest things to play is anger. And McDormand basically gave us two hours of anger–she let us see the humanity under it, which is why I don’t hate the win–but there’s more rage than range there.

    Once I rewatched 3 Billboards on a plane, I took back what I said. She truly deserved her Oscar.

    Amy Adams should have started in I,Taynya.

    It’s a perfect role for her true but she gives it so much strength and power as well as vulnerability. Even with the competition their decision to give her a second win was justified as not all second wins can take place in weak years like 1984 where Sally Field won(although she wasn’t that deserving IMO).

    Margot Robbie should be the one sweeping that year. What a performance.

    One of the most deserving wins of the last years. Stunning performance. Those who think Ronan was better… need some glasses.

    This year I stan: Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Joanna Kulig, Sam Elliott and Toni Collette (at the moment).

    Ronan was my choice. McDormand’s win doesn’t bother me as much as it did at the time, but it’s a very similar performance to her superior Emmy winning performance in Olive Kitteridge. And this Chloe Zhao movie looks VERY SIMILAR too. Sis has THE RANGE, so this isn’t a slam.

    I think overall people who hate her win think that the performance was very one-note, in a movie that offended a lot of people. Especially since there were other “deserving” nominees who had never won before. Personally my favorite by far was Sally Hawkins.

    Margot, Sally and Saoirse were better

    It really stems from the fact that the other nominees were better that year.

    I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    Her performance was very one-note. I wouldn’t have nominated her but I am biased because I hated the entire film. I found it to be a tacky mess. Rockwell should give his Oscar back too!

    I thought the film was wildly entertaining- I would have liked to see Martin McDonagh nominated for directing. I guess we’ll see how the win ages with a few more years.

    This thread reminds me how underrated Sally Hawkins is. The good sis is just a stellar actress.
