The best actress Oscar is one of the most appreciated awards of the evening. It recognizes the best female interpretation of the whole year, a distinction that many actresses hope to obtain. Report respect from your colleagues and legitimacy in your profession. After winning the Oscar, you know you are one of the best actors in the world.
Unfortunately, acting alone does not make a film, and many of the best actress-winning films have received a collective shrug from the general public. And some don’t. This is the way with movies.
These are the ten films that won the actress in 2010, ranked by IMDb.
10 The Iron Lady – 6.4
The general public didn’t seem to care The iron ladyand it’s not really difficult to understand why. Not only was it the typical Oscar-baited biopic turgidly centered on a politician (yawn), but he played the lead role of Meryl Streep. As such, many have viewed it as somewhat pretentious. But above all, it wasn’t a very good movie.
He is currently only 51% on Rotten Tomatoes and 54 on Metacritic, with most critics agreeing that Streep was the only great thing about the film. This is perhaps one of the blandest Oscar films of the decade.
9 Judy – 7.0
Speaking of generally forgettable winners, we have the best actress winning film this year. Judy plays Renée Zellweger in a fantastic return performance as Judy Garland. It’s very similar The iron lady, received a sensational shrug from film criticism. Sitting 82% on Rotten Tomatoes (average score of 7.0 / 10) and 66 on Metacritic, it is clear that this film did not exactly anger the critics.
It is also found at 7.0 / 10 on IMDb with only 20,000 votes, with the female 45+ demographic giving it the highest score at 7.5. No surprises there.
8 Blue jasmine – 7.3
Cate Blanchett was the favorite favorite of the 2014 Academy Awards after winning the Golden Globe, SAG and BAFTA for her portrayal of Manhattan’s wealthy socialite Jasmine Francis. Critics obviously loved Blanchett’s performance and the film scored 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Things are not so enthusiastic on IMDb, given that it ranks at the lowest third 7.3 / 10. The ratings are uniform for all demographics, indicating that everyone has found Blue jasmine “pretty good.” Not exceptional, not bad. Just … good.
7 Still Alice – 7.5
Alice again plays Julianne Moore as Alice Howland, a linguistics professor who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Like most films about debilitating diseases, it’s a nice Oscar role, and it worked. Moore has won all the major awards of the year, although the film itself is only at a relatively low 72 on Metacritic.
On IMDb it is at 7.5 / 10 based on 121,000 votes, with females giving a slight advantage to males (7.6 against 7.4). It is also interesting to note that 33.6% of the voters gave it an 8/10 and 31.6% a 7/10.
6 The favorite – 7.6
Sitting slightly above Alice again is The favourite, a film starring the brilliant Olivia Colman as Queen Anne. Unlike most of the other films mentioned so far on this list, The favourite he was a favorite of critics. He obtained 90 and very respectable and rare Metacritic, also winning the jury Grand Prix at the Venice Film Festival.
He was nominated for the ten Oscars of the years, although Colman was his only winner. What is very interesting is the demographic ranking on IMDb – the group that classified it as the highest (8.3) were males under the age of 18.
5 Silver Linings Playbook – 7.7
Silver Linings playbook it was the first film since 1981 to be nominated for all four acting categories – Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence as the protagonist, Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver for support. Unfortunately, Jennifer Lawrence was the group’s only winner (she also went home with the Golden Globe and the SAG Award).
It stands at a respectable 7.7 / 10 with 636,000 surprising votes, a clear indication of its popularity. Males preferred this film to females (7.8 versus 7.6), with males under the age of 18 once again giving it the highest score (8.0).
4 Black Swan – 8.0
The first winner of the decade was Natalie Portman for her surprisingly good interpretation of the troubled Nina Sayers. Black Swan it grossed over $ 330 million at the box office and brought Portman a number of awards, including Oscars, BAFTAs, Golden Globes and SAGs.
Tradition, critics and breaking audiences enjoyed this film in equal measure, as it is located at 79 on Metacritic and 8.0 / 10 on IMDb. However, it seems that the older you get, the less fun you have – both boys and girls under 18 rated it above 8 (8.5 and 8.3, respectively), while those over 45 rated it a paltry 7.5. They just don’t understand, man.
3 La La Land – 8.0
Emma Stone has had a great decade. She was nominated for three Oscar awards – Birdman, The favourite, is La La Land – and won his first Oscar for the latter. It was one of the film’s six Oscars, although the film itself received fourteen record-breaking nominations.
What is surprising about IMDb’s demographics is how unpredictable they are. Young people loved the film much more than the old demographic, and males rated it higher than females (8.6 versus 8.2 under 18, 8.4 versus 8.1 in demo 18-29).
2 Room – 8.1
As opposed to La La Land, Room received higher ratings from the female demographic. The demographic with the highest score is represented by females under the age of 18 (8.6 against their male counterpart 8.2), while females over 45 have rated it 8.2 (their male counterpart , 7.9).
1 Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri – 8.2
Top of the list is Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri a wonderful film starring the always spectacular Frances McDormand. This was McDormand’s second Oscar winner (later Fargo) and fifth nomination. With this film, she consolidated her legacy as one of the best actresses working in the industry.
Critics and audiences loved this film, as it scored 88 on Metacritic and 8.2 / 10 on IMDb. And the most favorable demographic? You guessed it – males under 18, at 8.6. Interestingly, the least favored demographics were also males, as both males 30-44 and 45+ rated it 8.0.
