    Was looking back on wiki at the Best Actress nominees over the years……1973 might be the year where all nominees could have won and been a worthy winner….

    Glenda Jackson in A Touch of Class (winner)

    Marsha Mason in Cinderella Liberty

    Joanne Woodward in Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams

    Ellen Burstyn in The Exorcist

    Barbra Streisand in The Way We Were

    I bet the voting was really close…..probably with this ranking…..Jackson/Streisand/Burstyn/Mason/Woodward

    I think 2010 was a great set of Best Actress nominees: Natalie Portman, Annette Bening, Michelle Williams, Nicole Kidman, and Jennifer Lawrence. All 5 had rave reviews, all 5 were in films that had great reviews, and all 5 were deserving of the win in their own right. It’s my opinion that it went to the right lady that year (Portman), but a case could be made for the other 4 ladies as well.

    I have to second 2010 but am going to add the 32nd Oscars (1959) and the 1956 Oscars.

    My favorite year was 1981, or was it 80?

    Sissy Spacek “Coal Miner’s Daughter”

    Ellen Burstyn “Resurrection”

    Gena Rowlands “Gloria”

    Mary Tyler Moore “Ordinary People”

    Goldie Hawn “Private Benjamin”

    These ladies were absolute powerhouses that year, and you just don’t see female roles like these today, sadly.

    That was 80

    I would go with 2010 also but add on 2011.

    Meryl Streep “The Iron Lady”
    Viola Davis “The Help” 
    Rooney Mara “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”
    Glenn Close “Albert Nobbs”
    Michelle Williams “My Week With Marilyn”

    Plus some of the other people in the bubble like Tilda Swinton “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and Kristen Wiig “Bridesmaids”

    An easy vote for 2006:

    Penélope Cruz, “Volver”
    Judi Dench, “Notes on a Scandal”
    Helen Mirren, “The Queen”
    Meryl Streep, “The Devil Wears Prada”
    Kate Winslet, “Little Children”

    I’ll go with 2005:

    Hilary Swank, “Million Dollar Baby”
    Imelda Staunton, “Vera Drake”
    Kate Winslet, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”
    Catalina Sandino Moreno, “Maria Full of Grace”
    Anentte Bening, “Being Julia” 

    Even tho I would have subbed Uma Thurman (Kill Bill: Vol. 2) for Bening – and maybe given Thurman my imaginary Oscar vote that year.

    I vote for 1973, 5 brilliant performances. Or maybe 1977: 

    Dianne Keaton, Annie Hall
    Shirley Mc Laine and Anne Bancroft, The Turning Point
    Marsha Mason, The Goodbye Girl
    Jane Fonda, Julia

    I agree also with 1977.  Any one of the five ladies nominated would have been a deserving winner.  My preference was Marsha Mason.  The voting probably went like this:  Keaton, Fonda, Mason, MacLaine, Bancroft (the latter two due to split votes)……though Shirley did have a “due” factor I think.

    1967 was pretty great. Faye Dunaway and Anne Bancroft each delivered some of their best performances and helped to make Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate the iconic films that they are. Haven’t seen Evans, but have heard nothing but great things about her work. Audrey wouldn’t have been win-worthy, but it’s always a pleasure to see her nominated and she pulled off the blind role well enough. And while I’m not too big a fan on Kate Hepburn coming out the victor for Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, it’s a pleasant and emotional enough performance in and of itself.

    Yes! What an inconic line-up. My personal pick would have been Penelope Cruz, but their was no denying Mirren.

    Glad Winslet and Cruz went on to win oscars (in the same year).
