Actresses Who Should Have Been Nominated for OscarIrina2932
The Top Ten
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.
At the time the film was made, I don't think anyone available could have turned in a better performance. Madonna may have a lot in common with ever Peron, but she was certainly acting -and acting well. Excluding her from the list was sheer spite. She earned the nomination.
Well, Madonna isn't brilliant actress but in this film she was wonderfully Brilliant. It was Oscar level definitely - Alexandr
Yes, truly truly snubbed - she's not the most amazing actress - she could use an acting class or it's more that she doesn't really seem to have the 'actor's' mindset when delving into a character - but this film required a presence - and an ability to 'act' while singing - which her videos have always proven she's brilliant at - mind you in most of her videos, she basically plays the same character, but she does it in a way that you cannot take your eyes of of her - in this film she actually gave an 'operatic' singing/acting performance - there are some truly heart wrenching and haunting moments all due to Madge - She also shines when playing herself, especially in secondary or supporting parts ('Desperately Seeking Susan' - 'A League of their Own' - 'Dick Tracy' - I'd even venture fairly good in 'Girl 6' and 'Shadows and Fog') - there's no doubt some nastiness involved in the snub for 'Evita' - Courtney Love got snubbed that year too, and the amazing Debbie Reynolds - perhaps and ...moreV 2 Comments
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
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
YES! She was so good and hot in that role she was like sooo convincingV 1 Comment
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.
Monica deserves Oscar for her performance in this movie.. Chanceless.
Bold & beatuifull in real sence. Mind blowing... She rocks
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
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 (
Dumb on the part of the academy, just dumb.V 4 Comments
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
