    Yes I said it. Unleash the Lange fanboys!

    Sorry but I just rewatched the brilliant Tootsie, and Teri Garr gives such a revelatory, understated, Oscar-worthy performance as Sandy, totally deserving of that Supporting Actress gong that year… Jessica Lange being in Supporting was the highest form of category fraud (equal to Julia Roberts this year), and should have been nominated in Lead… If Lange wasn’t in the same category, do you think Garr would have won? She brought so much weight to that role which, in the hands of another actress, a could have been such a thankless, worthless part. Lange deserved her Oscar for Blue Sky, but I don’t know how voters thought her performance in Tootsie was worthy of the trophy that year.

    Insight & thoughts?

    Honestly, anyone was better than her in that category. Don’t get me wrong she was good but not only was it a leading role but also she was upstaged by Garr in the same movie. They have awarded her here because of Streep. She was equally worthy so got her make-up award in supporting.

    What does Lange do to merit Lead consideration? She’s mostly in the film to react to Hoffman, isn’t she? Does she get any scenes where he isn’t in the room, so that the audience can focus on her thoughts, instead? If not, that doesn’t seem like a Leading performance to me. The movie is Hoffman’s story, and is about his growth above all else. 

    I actually really enjoy Lange in Tootsie. The part itself risks serving as more of a device than someone with distinct characteristics, but she does a great job of injecting sympathy into Julie Nichols. I felt a great attachment to her, and could see why Hoffman’s character fell so head-over-heels for her. Lange’s win might have been a make-up Oscar, but it’s a performance that I’ve always loved.

    This whole forum deserves this gif. 

    If you want to see a reactionary performance, you should take a look at Emmanuelle Riva in ‘Amour’. It’s so reactionary it’s almost human. Almost. I mean also even Lil Q > EmmanR.

    and on the topic’s question.

    Lol No she didn’t.

    Jessica Lange had a great year. She was great in Tootsie but better in Frances. It’s a shame when she had to go up against Streep’s ‘Choice’ because ain’t nobody else was winnin’. So they had to give the consolation prize for her lesser but still great performance.

    In my opinion Jessica Lange deserved the Supporting Actress Oscar for Tootsie; it totally was Hoffman’s movie.  Sometimes you get super strong contenders in the same race and only one can win.  As mentioned, there was no possible way Streep could lose. The supporting race that year had great contenders as well including Garr.

    Teri Garr was very good but I have no problem with Jessica Lange’s win.

    I have to disagree with two points:
    – Teri Garr was excellent, but it wasn’t exactly an understated performance.
    – Jessica Lange didn’t commit category fraud. This wasn’t a leading role. It was placed in the appropriate category. Dustin Hoffman was the only lead.

    The thirst is real in this post.
    If you consider Bradley Cooper’s and Amy Adams’s performance a leading one in American Hustle, then Jennifer’s in SLP is entirely justified. She even had more relevance and screentime. This discussion is exhausting, how many times do we have to insist?

    And Jessica Lange was supporting Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie. She’s the female lead but that doesn’t mean a thing.

    Did I write that Lawrence was supporting? No. I consider her to be pretty much leading or as I like to say when the other lead has less screentime, co-lead. She’s co-lead and was rightfully campaigned in leading category. Ugh!
