How she was not only nominated but won for Shakespeare in Love?

Not to mention the guy actually playing Shakespeare in that film totally snubbed for a nom lol

Her win is a textbook example of how winning this award is 10% talent, 90% playing the Hollywood game. Excluding some rare instances, of course.

Upon research it looks like Weinstein had a huge part in why it won so many awards :rip:

Gwyneth should give her Oscar back and give it to the rightful winner of that year Cate Blanchett :-*

Yes. Shakespeare In Love is beyond overrated. One of the most undeserving films being awarded.

She was the IT girl at the time. I worked in a video store at the time and people hated the film lol that and Episode I had the best comments from people - there was another film that had the line “You’re The Devil, The ****ing Devil” edited version we showed in the store said freaking - lots of pissed off people. I think it had French Stewart in it

Yes, she should give it back to the academy so they'll give the award to the true winner and one of the greatest actresses of all time - Fernanda Montenegro - instead. :jonny5:

Tea. At least Sandra Bullock's Oscar was a reward for her entire career. Reese has neither the range nor the catalog.

No, she's one of the greatest winners and absolutely deserved to win over her competition.

Maybe for the acting categories, but overall, that title belongs to Crash winning Best Picture

Excuse you, Reese was fantastic in Walk The Line, had no competition and was in the likely 6th BP nominee.

 

The only bad part about her win is that it’s an arguable supporting role, a reverse Vikander tea :rip:

Cate deserved for Elizabeth the better movie set around the same time as Shakespeare.
