Cate Blanchett winning for Blue Jasmine: Blanchett is one of my favorite actresses of all time, but I always hated her first Oscar for The Aviator, Portman or Madsen deserved to have won that year. When she won her second Oscar for Blue Jasmine I LOVED, not only for being one of my favorite performances of that year and of this decade, but for being an Oscar that I consider a redemption for her first Oscar. This performance is easily top 15 of this decade, top 5 among the performances of 2013, the best win in the Best Actress category in this decade tied with Olivia Colman and the best of her career tied with Carol.

Because there were very few female contenders who were in biopics this decade. When it comes to male contenders it is the opposite, that’s why I mentioned male performances instead.
Now we finally have a woman’s biopic after so many time.

These performances are not performances that I consider overrated only here at GoldDerby, but in general, performances that I see often being praised in forums, film groups, which have received recognition in awards (television awards or critics associations or film festivals …). Just to be clear, I like some of these performances, some are even my favorite of their respective year, I just don’t think they are as amazing performances as most people.

Yes, she deserved both oscars. I think her performance on ASND is better and more complex, but her character on GNTW is more ‘iconic’ in pop culture and cinema history in general.October 16, 2019 at 5:41 am #1203139008
just remembered that rihanna was supposed to star in annette at some point, any idea who ended up taking her role?
Rihanna was supposed to play a supporting role when Rooney Mara was still involved, but she dropped out and Rooney left a few months later and was replaced by Williams.October 14, 2019 at 1:41 pm #1203136515
Sorry if I sound edgy but I thought mental illness/deranged are the key/popular elements in Oscar baity/winning performances any way so what’s so special and unique about it, enough for us to have a whole thread dedicated to it?
First, roles about people with mental illness do not always guarantee Oscar nominations or are oscar bait.
Second, the reason why performances like that always get attention and are often discussed is because playing a mentally ill person is not easy, there are a lot of such performances that are considered among the best in movie history like Vivien Leigh in A streetcar named desire, Kathy Bates in Misery, Anthony Perkins in Psycho, Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive, Isabelle Huppert in The piano teacher etc…
Playing someone with mental illness is not easy, and when successful can result in a memorable performance, even if it does not necessarily win an Oscar.October 8, 2019 at 10:58 am #1203127909
Considering that she is blatantly snubbed for Happy-go-lucky, delivered a fiery performance that didn’t get overshadowed by Cate in Blue Jasmine, and should have won last year for TSOW, she IS!
I love Sally and for me she would already have an Oscar, but she is definitely not overdue in the same way as Julianne, Bening, Adams etc …October 8, 2019 at 10:56 am #1203127904
She stole Chastain’s nomination, but anyway that lineup would still suck. In a year with so many good performances, the nominees were so weak …September 19, 2019 at 6:55 pm #1203087773

Meryl is fantastic in Florence Foster Jenkins. It’s unnecessarily hated on because of she got an Oscar nomination for against Amy Adams, when in reality Negga was likely the one who stopped Adams.
Everyone knows that it was Ruth who stole Amy’s nomination this year, people only complain about Meryl being nominated because most of them liked Ruth’s performance more than Meryl’s and thought Meryl should have been left out so that both Ruth and Amy could be nominated.August 23, 2019 at 8:57 am #1203036216
