And the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress goes to...
Laura Dern, Marriage Story
I never thought I'd be upset to watch LAURA DERN (whom I LOOOOOVE) win an Oscar. But when we give her the gold simply because she was perfectly cast in a small role in an "Oscar movie" in the same year as her better (& far more layered & challenging) work in a beloved TV series (tbh I only saw season 1 of Big Little Lies, but I presume her work remains the same), I start to wonder about how we as an industry choose to judge acting.
But yes, I called this as well. (As did all but one expert.)
