brie larsonBrie Larson, Room

“Brie Larson’s portrayal of her character was very multidimensional – maternal, creative, depressed, petulant, angry, and ultimately resourceful and resilient.  What a ‘wow’ performance.”  — Hilde Kaiser

“I couldn’t vote for Charlize Theron so…”  — Joshua Corey



charlotte-rampling-45-yearsCharlotte Rampling, 45 Years

“I want a classy older lady to win.  She’s an amazing actress who has somehow never won.  Also, she’s looked better on the red carpet than starlets half her age.  Have I mentioned she’s a boss older lady?”  — Bridget Petrites


Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn

“Before seeing Brooklyn, I read the book and figured that there was no way I would like the movie as much as I liked the book.  Saoirse Ronan really brought the book to the screen.  She was totally believable.”  — Heather Ross


And the EPL Oscar goes to…
