Mary J. Blige. Mudbound
Just don’t get it. There’s a lot of worthy choices like :
Carey Mulligan, Mudbound
Holly Hunter, The Big Sick
Bria Vinaite, The Florida Project
Melissa Leo, Novitiate
Tiffany Haddish, Girls Trip
Duh… academy, duh…

Have to agree with Teridax for once.February 21, 2018 at 3:10 am #1202497975This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 21, 2018 at 5:52 am #1202498029
Octavia Spencer and Mary J. Blige are the two worst nominees this year (I still have 5 more performances to see though) but Mary J Blige is easily the worst.February 21, 2018 at 7:53 am #1202498113
J. Blige, yeah.February 21, 2018 at 7:56 am #1202498116
Yeah, so sad she was nominated when Bria Vinaite wasn’t. Also, Holly Hunter would be one of the few people to be nominated for the last 4 decades.February 21, 2018 at 8:02 am #1202498119
I don’t understand the criticisms towards Blige’s nomination. She was perfectly understated for me and was more than just “she’s not a terrible actress”. In fact, none of the nominees actually give bad performances.February 21, 2018 at 8:20 am #1202498134
i think Denzel was way more boring that Mary

Mary J. Blige should have never been nominated. The rest of the cast of Mudbound was 20 times better.February 21, 2018 at 9:31 am #1202498179
Yes, it’s between Spencer and Blige. I go back and forth, right now I would actually go with Spencer since she’s giving the same performance again and she was just nominated for it last year.
Sometimes I want to say it’s Blige because Mulligan was so much better in the same film, how did this happen? I suppose Blige at least had a better character though. Spencer was just the sassy friend…again.February 21, 2018 at 10:21 am #1202498221
Blige was not subtle or bland, she was REALLY BAD.
Yeah this. Lesley Manville was subtle, Mary J. Blige was just bad.
I definitely would’ve nominated Hunter instead. She’d be my winner or no.2 after Manville. She was electrifying in The Big Sick. Gemma Jones in God’s Own Country and Tiffany Haddish in Girls Trip were both marvelous as well.February 21, 2018 at 10:40 am #1202498228
I have disagree with the majority. I felt a lot of emotion from Mary’s performance. I don’t even know if I would call it subtle (though some moments were). She had some pretty straight forward moments, like her monologue about how she only prayed for her son the whole time he was away. I actually have her second to Laurie of the nominees. My personal opinion though.February 21, 2018 at 10:59 am #1202498245
I don’t get the hate towards Blige. While I do agree that she was the weakest performance in the category, it was far from a bad performance. I personally would’ve subbed her out for Allison Williams in Get Out (and replace Manville with Kirsten Dunst for The Beguiled), but no one in this category was a bad nominee, I think they ranged from excellent to very good.
