7 DAYS OF OSCAR COUNTDOWN ~ DAY 5 ~ BEST ACTRESS

Standard

Here we are – Day Five of the ‘SEVEN DAYS OF OSCARS’ countdown and we are at ‘Best Actress”. Once again I give who I think will win – and what my pick would be – as those two choices sometimes differ.

ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE
NOMINEES

SALLY HAWKINS
The Shape of Water
Sally gave a truly wonderful performance here as she so comically put it when del Toro asked her to be in the picture at a party and said “Hey I have a film I’d like you to be in, you play a deaf mute who falls in love with a fish” to where she replied ‘Sure’ – I just love that. And no, I won’t be mad if she wins.

FRANCES MCDORMANDMY PICK/WINNER
Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
Francis this little golden man is meant for you – and thank you for an amazing performance in this movie that I just loved.

MARGOT ROBBIE
I, Tonya
Margot – you were good in this film considering you had never even heard of Tonya Harding or Nancy Kerrigan. I just don’t think Oscar-type good and for me personally, I just can’t be onboard with the idea of celebrating Tonya Harding at all.

SAOIRSE RONAN
Lady Bird
Ms. Ronan has definitely proved herself to be a good young actress, she just happens to be in the category with some truly GREAT actresses.

MERYL STREEP
The Post
I feel like I go through this every year. We love Meryl, we love her body of work, just please stop using her as filler in the best actress/best supporting actress categories. sigh.

  1. I, Tonya was one of my favorites of this year’s oscar slate. I’m rooting for Margot Robbie to cause an upset. I wasn’t familiar with the Harding scandal (like you were) so it was like watching it all unfold for the first time.
    I too was impressed by Hawkins, especially since I remember her for talkative Poppy in Happy-go-Lucky, the polar opposite to a mute!

    • I did like the movie a lot – And while I knew about it – it was more vague and didn’t know the back story etc.. at all. Again, I just don’t think Tonya Harding should be celebrated & that’s kinda what a win would do for her even tho penalizing Robbie for a fun, good performance is also kinda not fair.

    • She is definitely NOT the victim though she portrays herself well as one and still does today. I do not like the fact that she was walking the Golden Globes red carpet with Robbie.. being celebrated.
