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.
Ruby Dee being nominated was kind of a joke too. She had like maybe 3 or 4 lines the entire movie. She got nominated for slapping Denzel.

One of the best plays Matt has ever made.
