    “Well Max, here we are: Middle-aged man reaffirming his middle-aged
    manhood, and a terrified young woman with a father complex. What sort of
    script do you think we can make out of this?”

    Yes, the
    words are Chayefsky’s, but the delivery is pure Dunaway.  Yes, she was
    overdue after “Bonnie & Clyde” and “Chinatown,” but rarely has an
    overdue nominee been so forceful in the role that finally won her the
    prize.

    I’d say Faye Dunaway…..it is honestly the best role she had that was suited to hear neurotic tendencies.

    Sissy Spacek and Liv Ullman were also both wonderful.

    Marie Christine Barrault was solid but not amazing.

    Talia Shire had no business being here. She probably would’ve won in Supporting, but either way, I wouldn’t have wanted her to win….plus her dour expression to losing doesn’t help.

    I’d say Dunnaway as well, but I would love to see Liv Ullman with an Oscar.

    It kills me not to go with Spacek…

    1. Ullmann
    2. Spacek
    3. Dunaway – wonderful but a little overrated IMO.
    4. Shire
    5. Barrault

    Ullmann, but Dunaway was excellent too.

    Sissy Spacek.    The blood dump scene contains some of the best facial and physical acting ever capture.  Her telekinitec induced “trance” is and will forever be iconic.
