#FilmNominations2014 : Best Supporting Actress


Somehow a more crowded category than its best actress partner with performances of the caliber of Emma Stone as the daughter/assistant of a fading star in ‘Birdman’; Imelda Staunton’s Welsh lead of a small miners community in ‘Pride’; Demet Akbağ as the bitter sister of an ex-actor turned hotel owner in ‘Winter Sleep’ or Dorothy Atkinson as Mr. Turner’s maid not making it to the final selection.

The ones who got shortlisted instead are Agata Kulesza, remarkable as the debauched auntie who reveals the sad fate of her niece’s relatives in ‘Ida’; Jessica Chastain, unfairly snubbed at the Oscars for her terrific turn as the self-made man’s controlling wife, dealing in the shadows with the dubious side of business in ‘A Most Violent Year’; Marion Bailey as the pension owner and late love interest of ‘Mr. Turner’; Patricia Arquette, the courageous, divorced mother of two supporting her family against every obstacle of life, the role that makes ‘Boyhood’ gel effortlessly; Rene Russo who returned to the big screen with one of the best parts of her career, the jaded chief editor of a TV News channel in ‘Nightcrawler’ and Uma Thurman’s standout turn as the abandoned wife losing it in front of her husband and his new lover in the dependably controversial Lars Von Trier’s ‘Nymphomaniac’.
