    Who was the front runner? Was Maggie Smith a surprise? 

    It was probably an irresistible opportunity to make fun of themselves by voting for an inside Oscar view like that BUT I’d have thought Maureen Stapleton would have had overdue factor.

    Anyone remember?

    I think it was between Maureen Stapleton, Maggie Smith & Dyan Cannon.  Meryl Streep and Penelope Milford weren’t really a threat……..

    Meryl Streep must have bee the terrifc ad beautiful young actress in a best picture winner and she had the NSFC Award. She couldn’t have been a filler. I’m not sure, but I somehow doubt it.

    Streep was close,  I think. And remember her part may SEEM small, but it’s a 3 hour film. The scenes she’s in she nails. But I was happy Smith won- such a fun and witty performance, and great chemistry with Michael Caine.

    Streep was a relative ‘unknown’ then, and what an impression she made! A wonderful, understated performance (remember those subtler days Meryl?)

    Looking at that nomination list, it’s not so surprising Dame Maggie won. With Jane Fonda winning Lead for Coming Home, it’s behooves them to skip to Smith (I agree with Jason on her perf and win) and honour that wonderfully witty and poignant film.

    My hunch is that Stapleton was marginally favoured for the win that year. They made things up to her a few years later and gave her the (deserved and worthy) win for Reds.
