    she is full of joy and excitement- must be one of the few actresses that pulled off such a fun speech instead of crying her eyes out.

    I agree that Ellen Burstyn was absolutely robbed. Her performance stuck with me for a long time after watching the film, and I've only been able to watch it twice. Such a hard but rewarding film. Ellen is a true actress, very skilled.

    Julia Roberts may be a good actress but this Oscar should have gone to Ellen Burstyn who gave an acting class

    Julia is beautiful, but she's a one-note actress. Burstyn should've won, but Hollywood is like high school prom.

    It is good to see that every comment is about to Ellen Burstyn. Still one of my favourites performance by an actress today. Maybe she should have been nominated as a supporting actress, so she could have won. See Emma Stone vs. Viola Davis... Viola was much stronger in my opinion, but she went for the supporting category, so she could win easily.

    Ellen Burstyn deserved it (let's be honest), but Julia's Oscar speech is still one of my favourites. She's so infectiously giddy and genuinely happy about it, without being weepy and melodramatic. "I love it up here!" I can imagine.

    Ellen Burstyn should have won for Best Actress. But I also feel like they should have acknowledged Bjorks performance as well in "Dancer In The Dark" which was equally heartbreaking

    Julia should have won best actress for Pretty Woman. But Ellen Burstyn deserved this Oscar.

    Great speech but she left out the main person. The real Erin Brockovitch probably should have been at least mentioned..idk

    A lot of people don't like 'Requiem for a Dream'. It's too scary. And too depressing. But I'd still have given the Oscar to any of the other 3 over Julia myself.

    Julia Roberts Is the last big recognizable diva Hollywood has produced, a real icon. She Is not only an actress, She Is an icon. She could do the worst movie in the world and still being Julia Roberts.

    Watching in 2019 sadly.. the sentiment: American political blowhards have denounced their love for their beloved Hollywood characters. The magic is dead. Actors are merely “privileged liberals” In the eyes of the most vocal of the self proclaimed “new majority.” Ahh, if we could all just share such simple minds. These truly where last of the good ol’ days. Oh ya, everyone loves Julia Roberts. Probably even in 2019 ironically. Never thought the climate of capital hill would captivate the hearts of so many people; so much so to actually replace the passion we all had for talented, whimsical, emotionally provocative Hollywood compatriots. Weird times, indeed. And Kevin Spacey?!? well, that’s a whole different brew of new world “stuff.” Just, wow. I thing we’ve lost our way. Sometimes, I really miss that pre- 9/11 world I grew up in. Things were just simpler then.

      Have you seen Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream? Julia had no business winning that award but she's Julia Roberts. She was too famous to ignore. Ellen Burstyn was the finest performance and arguably one of the best of the decade.

    Julia is great actress but she had better roles, Ellen Burstyn should have won, she turned into another person in Requiem

  • Joe Martinez
    Joe Martinez 5 months ago

    Julia was at her peak during this time so she was the favorite by just being so gosh darn famous. Unfortunately this is one massive mistake the Oscars made. Compared to Ellen Burstyns performance for Requiem for a Dream ,Julia's performance looks like an amateur. Ellen was robbed for The Exorcist and especially for Requiem for a Dream. That's such a shame.
