    Weaver for sure. Much as I typically adore her, I actually find Davis rather grating here (she’s also Lead). Cusack and Pfeiffer are deserving nominees. McDormand does nothing.

    McDormand won the NBR Award for Best Supporting Actress that year (among other accolades), and I’ve never understood why. As much as I love her, she didn’t do anything truly Oscar-worthy in Mississippi Burning.

    Out of who was nominated Sigourney Weaver. I think she was the first ever actor or actress to be nominated in both acting categories and to lose in both categories ):

    My nominees that year would have been:

    Genevieve Bujold, Dead Ringers
    Lena Olin, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
    Marisa Parades, Women On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown
    Martha Plimpton, Shy People
    Sigourney Weaver, Working Girl

    Weaver’s Oscar is the 1986 one for Best Actress.

    I think they were just trying to make her happen since she wasn’t a contender for Blood Simple.

    Bujold/Sarandon/Close gave the best performances of 1988.

    This was a very good year for supporting actresses. All the nominees were excellent. Davis and Weaver were iconic but I have to go with Pfeiffer. She gave an exceptionally touching and layered performance in a role that could have turned downright dull in the hands of a lesser talent.

    Haven’t cared enough to watch The Accidental Tourist yet. Out of the other 4, Weaver easily. I thought Pfeiffer’s character was the worst in DL, I much prefer her in the fluff that is Married to the Mob. I liked McDormand a lot in MB.

    Most of the best female performances were overlooked by Oscar that year.

    Liaisons was the strongest of her three nominations.

    From what i remember, Pfeiffer was the favorite, she was big that yeear…McDormand was a strong contender but Davis was the big surprise of the Oscar night.

    I respectfully disagree. In my eyes, The Fabulous Baker Boys remains the ultimate Pfeiffer performance.
