Oscars 2016 Alicia Vikander

Oscars 2016: Alicia Vikander Wins Best Supporting Actress for Danish Girl

It’s been said — at the end of Showgirls, I believe — that behind every Best Actress, there’s a Best Supporting Actress just waiting to push her down the stairs.

Five of Hollywood’s most supportive supporters went head-to-glamorous-head at the Oscars on Sunday: Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Rooney Mara (Carol), Rachel McAdams (Spotlight), Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs).

The honor went to… Vikander for her role of painter Gerda Wegener — the wife of Lili Elbe (played by Eddie Edmayne), one of the first women to have a sex reassignment surgery — in The Danish Girl.

Do you think Vikander deserved the Oscar? Watch video of her win below, then drop a comment with your thoughts.

  1. Well deserved. She was the star of the film

    This should be Redmayne.

    She’s good in this. But horrible in the man from uncle. And just my opinion, she was great when she’s sad/crying/emotional, but when she’s not, she appears a little bit of smug.

    This was a blatant category fraud. Should have been given to a true supporting actress performance.
