I was clinging on to a tiny bit of hope that Sally might have been able to clinch the BAFTA and maybe contend for the Oscar after that but I guess McDormand has this completely wrapped up now. I'm happy for her and think her performance was fabulous but I'm not sure she deserves a second Oscar before Ronan and Hawkins even have one.

1 Sally Hawkins (Such a good performance, especially when you think that it is in a language that she doesn't speak herself! The scene where Richard Jenkins repeats what she's signing was so impressive)
2 Frances McDormand (An incredibly charismatic performance and I couldn't imagine anyone else acing the role like she did but it just doesn't feel worthy of the win to me?)
3 Meryl Streep (One of her best performances in years to be fair and it was nice to see her do a bit more of a subdued performance again, this year is super tough though and I do feel she'll probably end up at the bottom of the pile again for me this once I see the other two nominees)

Surely Saoirse is coming for the win next year with Mary, Queen of Scots?!? (pls)
