oh most definitely. there's gotta be much more of a factor than "well she's an oscar winner" Just like it drives me nuts when people suggest someone for a part just simply because they're a good actor.. being a great actor doesn't always mean you can make any part your own, and that you are completely versatile enough to play any part... very very few actors are truly that much of a chameleon.
It's like Anna Kendrick being up for Sharon Carter. Yeah, she's a fantastic actress, but she no where near embodies who i perceive the character.
