Maybe the best episode of the season. It felt classic all the way through.February 23, 2020 at 7:29 pm #1203358015
Most of the actors you list got career awards to make up for being overlooked in the past. I don’t have a problem with that unless someone really outstanding gets overlooked which I don’t think really happened in any of the cases you mentioned.
Geena Davis is an exception to your list. That is a real shocking win. Sigourney had the double nomination and was in the more popular film. That is one of those real head scratchers like how did that happen?
Davis worked with a lot of people from Tootsie alone. I think she was the softer and more likeable alternative to Weaver. Supporting Actress used to be unpredictable.February 23, 2020 at 6:21 pm #1203357997
Oscar recognition is never necessarily on time. For most it comes either too early (Marisa Tomei/Jennifer Lawrence) or too late (Gary Oldman/Christopher Plummer).February 22, 2020 at 9:50 pm #1203357178
Many people disregard Frances’ 2nd win because she beat out the superior Sally but I think the performance was worthy and absolutely stands on its own
What annoys me about both her victories is how formidable her competition was both times. And she’s not a real leading lady if we’re going there.February 22, 2020 at 4:40 pm #1203356897
Lisa Kudrow. Easily could become a thing with the right project in the supporting category.February 22, 2020 at 10:43 am #1203356611
Johansson and Robbie would have been competitive for the win.February 21, 2020 at 11:44 pm #1203356104
Actress in a Leading Role
Kathy Bates, MiseryFebruary 21, 2020 at 12:39 pm #1203355599
Roma winning best director is bullshit. Lanthimos would have been a more satisfying alternative.February 17, 2020 at 3:49 pm #1203349901
Neon with Clemency.
A24 with High Life and The Last Black Man in San Francisco.February 17, 2020 at 1:43 pm #1203349829
Theron. Her movie won makeup and that has matched the best actress category in the past: Driving Miss Daisy, La vie En Rose, and The Iron Lady.
ScarJo’s consolation votes are in supporting.February 12, 2020 at 7:22 pm #1203344984
Jolie is such a singular type. Who is remotely an alternative choice to her?
