    Jennifer Connelly’s agents or publicist or whoever it was filled out the paperwork the wrong way and accidentally submitted her for lead at SAG and probably cost her the award.

    Back in the days of Suddenly Last Summer a big star like Hepburn would never go for supporting. It was considered a step down and a sign your career was in trouble. Shelley Winters has said she insisted on being campaigned as lead for Lolita because she already had a supporting Oscar and then she didn’t even get nominated. After that she stuck with going for supporting and won again for A Patch of Blue and said people just remember if you won. They forget what category.

    I like Shelley Winters.

    Same with Rosalind Russell in Picnic. She insist to be campaigned in Lead instead of supporting, thus she was snubbed.

    Yeah, in Shelley Winters’ memoirs (the second one she did), she writes at length about how campaigning in Lead for Lolita proved a huge mistake on her end. She also taunts her ex-husband Anthony Franciosa about garnering a Supporting and not Lead nomination for A Hatful of Rain…when in reality he actually was a Lead nominee! She is hilarious.

    Curious to hear how Winters taunts Franciosa in the book!

    I saw an interview where she was joking about how once she was ushering at some play reading at the Actors Studio and was asking people their name and then checking it off on a list.

    Franciosa arrived and she asked him his name and he said Shelley, it’s me!

    She seemed to enjoy the fact that she didn’t even recognize her ex-husband.

    If I recall correctly, Winters discusses Oscar nominations day in 1958 and how Francoisa was in a taxi home when he heard about his recognition. Francoisa yells out to Winters from the taxi window upon arriving outside their building, “Shelley, I was nominated!” To which she yelled back, “Yeah, well, I was nominated in LEAD for A Place in the Sun!”

    My favorite Shelley Winters Oscar moment is with Robert Osborne on an episode of Dinah Shore.

    It’s better to watch it then have me explain it.

    It starts at about the 36 minute mark.
