Best and Worst in Film 2014

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Emma Stone (Birdman)

Birdman
This was another close call between Stone and Patrica Arquette (Boyhood), and in all honesty it came down to their signature scenes. While Arquette’s moment at the kitchen table right before Mason leaves for college is heartbreaking, I have to give the slightest of edges to Stone’s monologue in Birdman. She completely rips her dad apart in the most vicious way possible, but it’s Stone’s immediate reaction that seals it. She instantly regrets it. It’s one of the most powerful scenes in Birdman, and a sequence where Stone went to that next level of acting.
