These are my Best Actress nominees for 2016. Feel free to vote for your pick.
I voted Portman, Adams and Huppert would be tied for a not that close 2nd, then Stone, and Negga in last place.
Isabelle Huppert’s was very inexpressive and disgusting in that crap called Elle. It is such a mysoginistic movie. As the Academy always goes right, the most iconic performance won.
Huppert > Portman > Adams >>> Negga >>> Stone
I’d have preferred to see Rebecca Hall here too. She gives a fantastic performance in Christine.
Amy Adams and Ruth Negga (tie)
Stil haven’t seen Elle
Viola Davis should have won this instead of Supporting. I am glad Emma Stone beat Isabelle Huppert. Elle was garbage.
Elle was the best movie of 2016 and Isabelle gave the best female performance of 2016. End of the story.
Huppert and Portman were basically equal for me. This line-up needed Beckinsale and Hall to make it legendary.
Of this lineup, Stone and Portman were the most deserving. Overall though, Annette Bening in 20th Century Women was the best of the year.
