    This is a very interesting year for Best Actress, all the performances are so different and all are   nomination worthy.  

    It was also an interesting year in regards to the race that year-  Smith’s win was very surprising, but boy she deserved it!! What an amazing performance!!! Very well deserved win. She is magnificent.  From  what I’ve read, and  from what ScottFerguson told me ,  Fonda,  Minelli,  and  Bujold  were  all strong contenders to win.  Smith  definitely could not be ignored though.  

    My thoughts:  

    1.  Smith-  Superb, amazing, ect

    2.  Bujold- Riveting, powerful,  fantastic.  

    3.  Fonda-  Terrific, if a bit repetive due to the nature of the film

    4.  Minelli-  She was originally second,  but I forgot  the film completely, need to see her again.  

    5.  Simmons-  She is  quite strong and  very vulnerable and hartbreaking in her performance, but the film is such a mess that it takes away from her performance.      

    Your thoughts?  If you were follwing the Oscars then, did Smith’s win shock you?   What do you think of the other nominees?

    SMITH  was the favorite and predicted winner before
    the show and a couple of weeks earlier…The shocker
    was nomination day when  STREISAND  was left off
    the list in place of Simmons…My personal best was Fonda
    for They Shoot Horses, Dont They?…..one of my all time
    favorite films…
    This was my order
    FONDA
    SMITH
    BUJOLD
    STREISAND
    SIMMONS..

    As usual, for me..Minnelli was undeserving
