Which actress featured in a 2015 (eligible for the Oscars 2016: Best Actress in a Leading Role) should have been actually nominated this year but wasn't?

Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth in Macbeth (2015);
Rachel Weisz as Lena Ballinger in Youth (2015);
Helen Mirren as Hedda Hopper in Trumbo (2015);
Rachel McAdams as Maureen Hope in Southpaw (2015);
Emily Blunt as Kate Macer in Sicario (2015);
Alicia Vikander as Ava in Ex Machina (2015);
Jennifer Jason Leigh as Lisa Hesselman in Anomalisa (2015);
Laia Costa as Victoria in Victoria (2015);
Olivia Cooke as Rachel in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (2015);
Jessica Chastain as Melissa Lewis in The Martian (2015);
Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015);
Amy Poehler as Joy in Inside Out (2015);
Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015);
Kitana Kiki Rodriguez as Sin-Dee in Tangerine (2015);
Bel Powley as Minnie in The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015);
Helen Mirren as Maria Altmann in Woman in Gold (2015);
Maggie Smith as Miss Shepherd in The Lady in the Van (2015);
Sarah Silverman as Laney Brooks in I Smile Back (2015);
Amy Schumer as Amy in Trainwreck (2015);

The lucky ones who actually were nominated this year.
1. Cate Blanchett: For Carol (2015)
2. Brie Larson: For Room (2015)
3. Saoirse Ronan: For Brooklyn (2015)
4. Jennifer Lawrence: For Joy (2015)
5. Charlotte Rampling: For 45 Years (2015)


No films with an IMDb rating under 6.0 will be accepted. That maybe made stricter (to 7.0). For now? Minimum of 1000 votes/IMDb ratings for a given film. No current Razzie nominated actresses will be accepted either.

@tsarstepan,
I've seen all of the performances listed below. The following four performances could have easily got a nomination and deservedly so.
Emily Blunt as Kate Macer in Sicario (2015);
Alicia Vikander as Ava in Ex Machina (2015);
Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road (2015);
Amy Poehler as Joy in Inside Out (2015);

The following three performances were pretty darn solid but I'm not losing any sleep over their lack of nomination.
Jessica Chastain as Melissa Lewis in The Martian (2015);
Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015);
Kitana Kiki Rodriguez as Sin-Dee in Tangerine (2015);

@tsarstepan,
BM - (so I can find it later)

I would consider Helen Mirren in Trumbo to be in a supporting role.
