Speaking of "miracle" nominations of this decade, we're forgetting one of them.
And if Huppert counts (GG win and all), then my girl deserves a shout-out too.
So basically, last-minute Best Actress surprises are the best, as I'm sure Stephen will agree.
Yeah, even though I was predicting Negga when everyone else had dumped her (one of the few things I got right last year, along with Mad Mel and the O'Connell/Gilbert wins), she's a far bigger "miracle" than any of the other four save for maybe Cotillard.
Also, all three of these ladies are my top three nominated lead actress performances of the decade. Coincidence?
I guess there wasn't any miracle BA nominee last year.
1. Ruth Negga - One of the performances of the decade (along with Edgerton). One of the best on-screen couples in my opinion. 2=. Marion Cotillard - Spectacular. My winner. 2=. Emmanuelle Riva - Also spectacular. My winner. I would hardly call her a "miracle" nominee though. She scored a precursor (BFCA) and won one (BAFTA). 4. Wallis - Brilliant child performance. 5. Rampling - Meticulous and delicious. 6. Huppert - In line with her other austere performances. Very consistent but I wasn't really touched. I wouldn't call her a "miracle" nominee either. She won the globe for this.
Anyway, all 6 are worthy nominees.

Huppert - because it could be played in a whole lot of ways - unlike the others - and there is a ton of thought and choice that goes into the performance. Probably not in her top 10 even - may sneak in - that's how great she is. People saying it's "typical" for her lead me to believe they don't know her filmography much past a few big roles tbh.

1. Marion Cotillard, Two Days, One Night 2. Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years 3. Isabelle Huppert, Elle 4. Emmanuelle Riva, Amour
I really like the first 2 and Cotillard is easily the best, Huppert was good as always but her (character) doing crazy, shocking things on screen isn't the same as giving an oscar worthy performance and Riva, ma délicieuse Riva, love her but not here, many of her lines delivery doesn't ring true at all to me (and I know a bunch of French who feel the same way), Trintignant should have gotten the lion's share of the (international) love instead, need a rewatch tho.
