    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…

    Mary J. Blige, duh, OBVIOUSLY!

    Seriously, the answer to the topic of this thread is so obvious to any sane person that I don’t think it even needed to be made an actual thread.

    For your Goldderby Film Awards consideration: Isle of Dogs for every category, especially Music Score for Alexandre Desplat!

    Have to agree with Teridax for once.

    Mary J. Blige was not subtle. She was BLAND. You could have replaced her with a cardboard cutout of Blige and I’m almost entirely sure that cardboard cutout would STILL be nominated for a freaking Oscar!

    Mudbound was a serviceable period piece, a fine film with some very good performances from Jason Mitchell, Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan… but Mary J. Blige, no freaking way! Even Rob Morgan was more memorable and layered than her performance, so where the heck is Rob Morgan’s Oscar nod?!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Blige was not subtle or bland, she was REALLY BAD.

    It makes me really sad, ’cause Mulligan ate her alive.

    Mary J. Blige should have never been nominated. The rest of the cast of Mudbound was 20 times better.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
