This year the frauds are worse than in 2015, after all, in 2015 there were only two. This year it was FOUR.
But I think Mara’s fraud was worse because the studio decided to campaign for supporting actress, in the case of Lakeith, the studio campaigned for lead actor, but for some reason the academy decided to opt for the fraud.

Every time I see people talking about the Oscar winning films and performances that they hate, it’s clear that many have never seen most of the award-winning films released before the 90s.
There are MUCH worse winners than the ones you all hate …

Rebecca Hall: She should have a bigger career, she is extremely talented.
Mia Wasikowska: She had a good career at the beginning of the decade, but she needs a comeback.
Kristen Stewart: She managed to build good filmography after the end of the Twilight franchise.
Carey Mullingan: One of the best of her generation, after a decade of building solid filmography, will finally receive a second nomination.
Amanda Seyfried: She never fully reached her potential, maybe that will change after Mank.
Emma Stone: She managed to build a good filmography since 2014 and won an Oscar.
Anna Kendrick: She wastes her potential with mediocre films, but she has had a good number of box office hits.
Evan Rachel Wood: It’s not that relevant in the cinema, but it’s doing well on TV.
Abbie Cornish: I don’t follow her career.

I don’t care so much about the fact that Lady Gaga received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for ‘A Star is Born’. She was fine. There have been several far worse performances that have been nominated in the past decade. If any other actress had played this role instead of her and delivered a performance at the same level, many people would not have criticized in the same way that they criticize.
Christian Bale should stop making so many physical changes, I can barely remember when he last delivered a performance that impressed me. And he should start making more diverse and interesting choices as he did in the early 2000s, in that decade ‘The Fighter’ is the only good movie he made, the rest is average or mediocre.

It is not necessarily a performance that I consider one of the worst winners in the category, but Ingrid Bergman winning by ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ was a random choice. If I’m not mistaken, she even said that she doesn’t think she deserved that Oscar hahahaha.
If anyone was going to win an Oscar for this film, it should have been Lauren Bacall, she was great in that role.

Timotheé is a leading actor, while Lucas is a character actor, as are Jamie Bell, Nicholas Hoult, Barry Keoghan etc. He will probably have a long career ahead of him, but he will not be considered for the same roles as Thimothée. He will probably do better in low-budget art house films.

At the moment, Adam Driver has the best career among those mentioned. But overall, considering all the filmography and performances, I voted for Jake.

The Golden Globe should bring back the category of Best Documentary and include a category of Best Adapted Screenplay.
The Gotham Awards should include the categories of Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

No doubt it was Jennifer Lawrence. In 2010 she had her first prominent role in a film with four Oscar nominations, including best picture and actress.
In 2011 she first appeared in the reboot of one of the biggest superhero franchises in cinema (X-Men).
In 2012 she had her leading role playing one of the most popular and iconic female characters of the past decade in a film that became one of the biggest box office hits of the year. In the same year she won several awards for her performance on ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ including the Oscar.
In 2013 she did the sequel to The Hunger Games which was also a box office success and was again nominated for several awards for her performance on American Hustle.
Only in that three-year period she had already played an iconic character in pop culture (Katniss), won the five most relevant awards in American cinema (GG, CC, Bafta, SAG, Oscar), had also won minor awards (AACTA, Spirit Awards, Gotham, Satellite) and had also won the top three critical awards (NYFCC, NSFC, LAFCS).
Even though other actors like her have had roles in major franchises and won an Oscar in their first or second nomination (Stone, Brie, Vikander, etc.) Lawrence still had a bigger breakthrough than the others.
