When Alicia Vikander was submitted for and won an Oscar nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category for The Danish Girl (2015) some critical eyebrows were raised. It was alleged that Vikander should have been nominated for Best Actress, but that Focus Features decided to category shop and put forward Vikander in a less competitive category to increase the odds of a nomination and perhaps a win. 

It has been argued that Vikander was, in fact, a lead actress in the film as she had more screen time and more dialogue than costar Eddie Redmayne who was nominated for Best Actor. 

Should Alicia Vikander have been nominated for Best Actress or Best Supporting Actress for her role in 'The Danish Girl'?

Best Actress

I thought the question was going to be if I prefer her in a lead or supporting role.

Vikander was Lead Actress for The Danish Girl, I haven't watched the film but it seems like for every single awards, she was nominated as a lead actress, and was nominated for supporting for Ex Machina. You can tell by watching live reactions to the Oscar nominations when the name Alicia Vikander is mentioned, everyone is nodding but then comes the title and they're all WHAAAT?!, everyone expected a double nomination but she only got one, in the wrong category.
