Actresses that Didn't Win the Oscar But Should Have
Should have won for this role, hands down!
She did it all!
Most perfect casting ever, without a doubt😍
Next to Aliens, this was Sigourney Weaver's best movie. - nallimcamybloc
She should have won an Oscar for this movie!
The scene with Haley Joel Osment in the car alone is enough for an Oscar win!
Amazing actress in everything she does!
Yes. Sigi was amazing in "Gorillas in the Mist" but Aliens is special one! In 1986 She was really the best - Alexandr
Sigourney Weaver at her best! - nallimcamybloc
Really against your for her and she sort of switched the comedic role with Jim Carrey who is actually great as the "straigh guy" for a change in his stereotyped roles.
Perfect performance. Jessica Lange's performance was good but the movie was horrible. Oscar is never ready to give Jodie or Meryl their 3rd oscar. Jodie was robbed.
While Julia Roberts was clearly excellent and memorable in Erin Brockovich, I feel the performance is a bit overrated, especially when compared to Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream. Roberts is convincing as the sharp-tongued environmental activist, but as the plucky can-do yet vulnerable woman, it's both a role we've seen before and a role we've seen Roberts play before. On the contrary, Burstyn gave a mesmerizing performance as Sara Goldfarb, an aging woman desperate for the attention of her narcotics-dealing son and searching for a sense of purpose in her life since the death of her husband. Sara's life seems to take a turn for the better when she is invited to appear on her favorite television program, but first she must suppress her food addiction in order to fit in her husband's favorite red dress. As the movie progresses, we see Sara essentially lose her mind from diet pills as her refrigerator comes to life and people from the T.V. appear in her apartment to taunt her. ...more
Breathtakingly amazing. brought jo march to life
Helen Hunt was good but Kate Winslet was phenomenal
She did win can oscar for her screenplay if that's a consolation.
Amy Adams was standing out in this movie, so I'm glad that the overrated actress didn't win.
Honestly, This was in her "Top 3 Performances, " Well Done, Meryl Streep!
It was puzzling why Glenda Jackson won best actress. I think it was poltics and jealousy happing around Barbra Streisand's success of the movie and song.
This movie did get so many Oscars nominees, but it's Amy Adams who's really stand out in this movie.
If you ask me the overrated Jennifer Lawrence don't deserve even a nomination. This actress is so annoying and arrogant. Amy Adams really deserves to win an oscar even if this movie is not one of her best movies ( I'm refering to the moviescript and not Amy Adams's performance here ).
This was a case of a deserved win for another feature film but Doctor Zhivago was on another level, not to disrespect Darling the movie which won Christie her Oscar in the same year. - jezza0
Arching an eyebrow isn't done any better than by Anjelica Huston. Her performance was Oscar worthy for sure! She surpassed her Prizzi's Honor role by making you hate her cunning and seductive way of robbing people blind.
In many years time, this performance will have become iconic, and Julianne Moore's win will look unfair.
