    Winner: Katharine Hepburn in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
    Other nominees:
    Anne Bancroft in The Graduate
    Edith Evans in The Whisperers
    Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde
    Audrey Hepburn in Wait Until Dark

    I just watched “The Whisperers” for the first time last night; Edith Evans is outstanding. It has been awhile since I’ve seen the other nominees. Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on this race. I know Edith Evans had won several awards (including The Golden Globe Drama ) for her work. I am thinking she likely placed second after K. Hepburn followed by Bancroft, Dunaway and then A. Hepburn.

    Evans had the critics, the GG and two previous nominations. She was, easily, the second place that year and only lost because Tracy died, we all know that.

    She’s MAGNIFICENT in this role and, by far, the best performance out of the nominees.

    Bancroft is amazing and mesmerizing in The Graduate, she’s my second place. Between Audrey and Dunway, I have to go with Miss Hepburn because it’s a really different performance and really good to be honest, Dunway is a close fourth.

    Hepburn is the weakest here, she’s good but nowhere near the level of the award, and maybe the nomination alone.

    Indeed, Evans was almost certainly runner-up, followed by Bancroft and Dunaway/Hepburn in a close call for 4th/5th.

    My personal ranking would be Evans, Dunaway, Bancroft, (Katharine) Hepburn and (Audrey) Hepburn. I can’t get too worked up about the Hepburn victory though – I do find her immensely entertaining and charming in her film. It’s the other Hepburn IMO who’s the clear weak link.

    Evans is far and away the best in ’67. In fact she may be the best nominee of the 60’s.

    I’ve never seen “The Shop on Main STreet” but want to. I agree that Edith Evans was perfection in “The Whisperers” but frankly couldn’t wait for the film to end…certainly not as entertaining or interesting as the other nominees the Best Actress nominees were in.
