    I wanted to have a little fun and honor 5 film mother performances by actresses. These 5 mothers were very mean to their children. And the nominees are…

    Best Actress in a Mean Mother Role:

    • Anne Ramsey (Throw Mama From a Train)
    • Faye Dunaway (Mother Dearest)
    • MoNique (Precious)
    • Piper Laurie (Carrie)
    • Shelley Winters (A Patch of Blue)

    Here is how I’d rank them…

    1. Anne Ramsey
    2. Shelley Winters
    3. Piper Laurie
    4. Faye Dunaway
    5. MoNique

    How would you guys rank them.

    Wow I have actually seen all of these! 

    In terms of evilness 

    1. Monique
    2. Faye Dunaway
    3. Shelly Winters
    4. Piper Laurie
    5. Ann Ramsey  

    In terms of performances it would be the same except I would swap Faye and Shelly

    Someone should note that Dunaway is: 1) not a supporting actress, and 2) she was the lead in Mommie Dearest. In her place you can substitute any number of supp. actress nominees, maybe use Jacki Weaver from Animal Kingdom or even Amy Ryan (more nonsensical and uncaring than mean) from Gone Baby Gone.

    I agree with Logan. Dunaway is not supporting and unlike the other four, not nominated. As a replacement, I suggest Gladys Cooper in Now Voyager or Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate.

    I fixed it. Thanks guys. My goal at first was to have all supporting actresses in this but I could not think of a 5th slot.

    I’ve only seen two of these. Monique and Piper Laurie. The former is very good and deserving, although a bit overrated (I wouldn’t consider to put her in my Top 3 in ten years) and the latter is just pretty mediocre. Patricia Clarkson and Julianne Moore both did a better job playing Carrie’s mother.
