I realize I can google this but who else was more deserving in the field?
Best Supporting Actress
* Tilda Swinton - Michael Clayton
o Cate Blanchett - I'm Not There
o Ruby Dee - American Gangster
o Saoirse Ronan - Atonement
o Amy Ryan - Gone Baby Gone
I'd have gone with Amy Ryan or Ruby Dee.
Honestly, the field wasn't that strong. Tilda, while a good actress, didn't deserve an Oscar IMO for a role that could have been played just as easily by 20 other women off the top of my head.
