    She should have won for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and she did.  That is the only Oscar, in my opinion, that she should have received.

    Cat On a Hot Tin Roof and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
    Two iconic performances in two iconic films based on two iconic plays.

    The lead actors from each film should have won as well.

    Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966) – One of the top three Best Actress winning performances, next to Meryl Streep in “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) and Vivien Leigh in “Gone with the Wind” (1939)- truly iconic.

    Should have also won for “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (1958) and “Suddenly, Last Summer” (1959)

    Should have recieved nominations for “National Velvet” and “A Place in the Sun”

    Cat on a Hot Tin Roof & Virginia Woolf. My understanding is she was set to win, the frontrunner, for Hot Tin Roof but her public scandal  sullied her chances..

    ^ I agree she should’ve been nom’ed for A Place in the Sun..

    She’s good in Giant (aged well in it). Day (The Man Who Knew Too Much), Mansfield (The Girl Can’t Help It), and Barbara Stanwyck (There’s Always Tomorrow) should have been contenders.

    Not sure she was nominated, but A Place in the Sun anyone?

    She was terrific in Father of the Bride as well

    She was fabulous in  A PLACE IN THE SUN…but
    Shelley Winters was nominated for best actress instead
    of Elizabeth and Monty of course was nominated for best actor.

    She had 5 nominations for best actress…
    I wouldve added
    1951 a place in the sun
    1956 giant

    Sorry but no way should Taylor have won Actress for Suddenly, Last Summer up against Simone Signoret for Room at the Top. THAT is an iconic performance.

    She’s so good in Woolf. She earned it and she won. I loved her in Giant, Suddenly Last Summer, Elephant Walk, Shrew, Tin Roof, Father of the Bride, National Velvet; even Cleopatra and Father of the Bride.
    I dont think I would have given her a second Oscar for anything else, but who could begrudge her. She was so divine.

    She’s actually pretty decent in BUtterfield-8, though she didn’t deserve the Oscar for it.

    She’s fabulous in ‘Butterfield 8’. Unpopular as it may be I completely agree with her win.

    She’s my #1 in………….

    1959 – Suddenly Last Summer
    1960 – Butterfield 8
    1966 – Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

    I’d also be more than happy fo her to have won in 1958 as well but would probably give it to Roz that year for ‘Auntie Mame’.
