It’s a fact that comedic/musical performances are generally not as highly regarded as dramatic ones. In fact, most of the hated Best Actress wins of the last 25 years belonged in the Musical/Comedy at the Globes (Stone, Lawrence, Witherspoon, Paltrow, Hunt) with a few exceptions (Bullock and Berry who didn’t even win the Globe)
But which win of this “lesser” category do you really like ? Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose was beyond impressive (amongst the all-time best) but even then, it’s an actually very dramatic performance that should have won in the drama category if La Vie En Rose wasn’t a musical biopic
Otherwise I loved Diane Keaton in Annie Hall the most. She was exquisite.
Bonus : which of these Golden Globe winning/Oscar nominees performances do you feel also deserved to win the Oscar ? I loved Angela Bassett in WLGTDWI, Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge and Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia. They all kicked ass

Marion is the obvious answer so I´ll pick Amy Adams in American Hustle.I wish this film was released the previous year.January 8, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1202726123

Was just going to say Amy Adams in American Hustle. Also Sally Hawkins in Happy Go Lucky, but she didn’t even get an Oscar nomination after her GG win.January 8, 2019 at 12:48 pm #1202726146
Sissy Spacek for Coal Miner’s Daughter is another great Globe/Oscar win IMO. For those who lost the Oscar, I loved Angela Bassett in What’s Love Got to Do With It as well, shame she had to get nominated in the same year Holly Hunter was steamrolling. I also really liked White Michelle in My Week with Marilyn, though my personal Oscar winner that year was Rooney Mara.January 8, 2019 at 12:51 pm #1202726150
My top 5 (since 2000 onwards):
1) Nicole Kidman – Moulin Rouge
2) Marion Cotillard – La Vie en Rose
3) Olivia Colman – The Favourite (now that it’s happened she counts)
4) Michelle Williams – My Week With Marilyn
5) Amy Adams – American HustleJanuary 8, 2019 at 2:09 pm #1202726257

Oh yeah, I loved Sissy tooJanuary 8, 2019 at 2:35 pm #1202726292
Barbra Streisand – Funny Girl
Liza Minnelli – Cabaret
Cher – MoonstruckJanuary 8, 2019 at 2:38 pm #1202726296
Diane Keaton in Annie Hall.
Meryl Streep for Julie & Julia ought to have won instead of Sandra Bullock.January 8, 2019 at 2:50 pm #1202726325
Sandra Bullock won the Golden Globes the year she won the Oscar…
For me :
Amy Adams – American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings PlaybookJanuary 8, 2019 at 3:04 pm #1202726358
I would have voted for Meryl Steep in Julie and Julia. I liked it so much because she didn’t take herself too seriously much like in Adaptation. My second choice would have been Abbie Cornish in Bright Star but she wasn’t nominated for anything.January 8, 2019 at 3:46 pm #1202726412
probably mary poppins or cabaret, imo judy garland in a star is born was better than either one of them but that’s a different conversation I don’t even wanna startJanuary 8, 2019 at 5:02 pm #1202726530
My top five:
-Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins
-Diane Keaton, Annie Hall
-Liza Minnelli, Cabaret
-Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose
-Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl
Though my favorite performance of 2009 was Carey Mulligan in An Education, I also loved Meryl in Julie & Julia (and would’ve been happy to see her win)
