Actresses Who Should Have Been Nominated for Oscar
The Top Ten
Yes she was. And the most charismatic and most beautiful I've ever seen her. Plus as a fan you can tell it was a cathartic performance of her forgiving the world for taking her mother at 5 years old and embracing her maternity. It took serious hard work to sing the way that she did before and discovering her upper register,using her head voice and singing as a mezzo-soprano. Her rendition of don't cry for me Argentina was tender, lyrical and beautiful. The best singing of her career and the most impressive growth.
Her voice was impressive. The costuming set a Guinness record. The sets were amazing.
And MADONNA was IMPECCABLE in every aspect.
She got robbed.
She wouldn't have won it, but she DESERVED a nomination for this role. This was a big event movie for the year and one of the top female characters on screen for 1996. Madonna departed from her usual and gave a performance to remember.
This was a performance of a lifetime. Madonna was genuine and authentic and made the musical endearing.
Can't believe her performances didn't make the cut in the least memorable year in the 90's
Such an underrated movie and Actress, I can't believe she only has 1 oscar nod
Yes did deserve an Oscar nomination
She and Emma Thompson were litteraly the only remembered performances of that year, how could she not be nominated
And Niagara, Gentlemen prefer Blondes, The Misfits, How to marry a Millionaire, Asphalt Jungle, River of no Return and maybe even Clash by Night and Bus Stop - all great performances. Certainly should have one, at least, one Oscar. - punksnotdead
Best supporting for sure. Punishing her bad behaviour on set by withholding a nomination was not only cruel but nasty.
That movie was hilarious
It was more of a teen movie, and not something that would usually get nominated, and that's why she didn't, even though she deserved to be at least nominated. - ilovekelly75
She should be nominate for oscar for this film, because the way she played the role of Jamie Sullivan. It's unforgetable
This movie is just great.
Pam is a 70s icon who is known for her extreme beauty as well as her power-house acting. Her role in Jackie Brown received rave reviews and many were shock she didn't receive an Oscar nomination.
This Performance was one of the biggest snubs ever. Im not african american but I can truly say she disevred the oscar for her performance in jackie Brown. - israel08
One of the best performances of the 90s
Monica deserves Oscar for her performance in this movie.. Chanceless.
Bold & beatuifull in real sence. Mind blowing... She rocks
Demi Moore has gone in bad movies but Ghost is just awesome not only for the great performance of Whoopi Goldberg and her chemistry with Swayze but also Moore was everything: she cried, laugh and made us feel the way she did she deserved much more than what she got
As to why her peers cannot see how great an actress Demi is, is simply beyond comprehension. Demi Moore is a really awesome actress.
! Yes she was overlooked because of the awesome Whoopi Goldberg but she made me cry (
Yeah, this really was her only chance for an Oscar nod but she was a major snub
She's a great actress.
She should have been nominated over that chick from Tom & Viv
She was excellent as Ingrid.
Not Oscar-worthy but definitely Madonna's best performance ever, much better than Evita. I mean if she received a big accolade for her portray of ever Perón (which wasn't her finest in my humble opinion), this performance deserved at LEAST to be nominated for another Globe, this time in the Drama or Supporting category. She should've won the Best Actress award at the Venice film festival, too.
This is a Best Actress worthy role. I can't really think of any other actress that could have played this role as good as she did. To me Kathy has always been underrated even though she has an oscar to her name.
A personal opinion, Demi was absolutly amazing in both films. Her performances are still to this day being watch and remebered by millions. I love her acting.
Not only was she great in this film, but she looks more gorgeous bald.
Not nominating her because she has done Striptease? Really?
I was really surprised when I found out she wasn't nominated, she was definitely robbed
