    … which performances would be nominated? Following tradition and calibre of the acting jobs of this year’s selection that Oscars usually have, which five actors/actress would be up for an Academy Award?

    Eva Green in all categories. Maybe I’m a broken record but how is it possible that she was snubbed not one but three times in a row? Her Vanessa Ives is a performance for the ages.

    Let me just say I am glad Emmys are not the Oscars and I am so we won’t have to imagine such a nightmare-ish situation. Most of the nominees would be the ones campaigned most and the winners would be the most obvious and basic choices. At least here we get to see exciting nominees and winners fueled with passion votes where each category(most of them?) is only voted by the people in that branch, so a sound designer doesn’t get to choose who is better at acting.
