Below are some articles declaring her magnificent performance, and exploring the mystery of her snub, and some general information if you're not familiar with her or the film:

Although Miranda Richardson is one of my favourite actresses and her turn in Made in Dagenham was marvellous, Manville in Another Year is my winner by a mile, and would be if she hadn't been criminally overlooked by Hollywood.

I'd be very grateful if you joined the Facebook page I made up, to show there is passion behind this snub, one of the worst of the year including Christopher Nolan's Best Director snub.

Thankyou for your time
