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.
I definitely agree with your take on it. Also agree that while she played the part well it could have easily worked with quite a few other actresses.
