    Vozas’s recent 80s Best Actress thread got  me interested in doing one for the 70s, especially since he says that its signifigantly stronger which I would be interested to see if thats a conscenus among most of us.   

    My ranking:  

    1.  Fonda 

    2.  Minnelli 
      
    3.  Dunaway 

    4.  Keaton 

    5.  Burstyn 

    6.  Field 

    7.  Jackson 

    8.  Fletcher 
     
     

    I have not seen Jackson in Women In Love or Fonda in Coming Home yet, but I really need to.  Which one should I watch first?

    “Which one should I watch first? “
     

     

    Probably Coming Home. It’s Hal Ashby, features two winning Leads, is well written, and all round pretty good film.

    On the other hand, depending on how you feel about Ken Russell, who btw is one of my favorites, Women in Love is worth checking out as well. This is the perf that Jackson so often gets lambasted about. Whatever. She’s a fabulous thespian overall. But Russell is such a quirky guy. Not all of his films work, but noone can call the guy conventional.

    I was leaning towards Coming Home, given I tried to watch Women In Love and I couldn’t get through it. That was a while ago now though and I will force myself to sit through it regardless.  I’m surprised you said she gets criticized for that one.  I always though her Touch Of Class  win was unfairly criticized and she’s often praised for her work  in W.I.L.   She’s definitely someone I want to see more of-  She’s fantastic in Hedda as well.

    1). Jane Fonda (Klute)
    2). Ellen Burstyn
    3). Sally Field
    4). Faye Dunaway
    5). Liza Minelli

    7). Glenda Jackson (Touch of Class)

    9). Louise Fletcher
    10). Jane Fonda (Coming Home)

    Weird that Fonda is both Best and Worst. She could be hit and miss. The 1970s was really her decade mixing a variety of different kinds of films its just too bad she’s seriously underrated as an actress. 2-4 are interchangeble for me.

    Not particularly impressd with this decade at all. If I’m honest I prefer the 80’s.

     

    Surprised Fonda has ended up so low as she’s one of my favourite actresses.

     

    Jackson is fabulous in ‘A Touch of Class’. Great win.

    Honestly, besides Fonda for Coming Home, I really liked or loved most of these performances….a lot of them were my first or second choice in their respective years….except for also Jackson for ATofC, not a bad performance but she was in a fairly strong category.

    Who knows. Perhaps because their personal favorites bowed to her? Of course the same can be said for reactions to her win in  A Touch of Class. And Weinstein was just a kid then, wasnt he? Or at least, “kiddish”.

    Personally, having seen those nominees, my heart would have been with Marsha Mason, or Woodward, although Streisand and Burstyn are also worthy nominees. They’re all so different.

    I can understand why she won.

    Noone was going to beat her in WiL. What an esoteric lineup.  Although, I thought Carrie Snodgress was fabulous in Diary of a Mad Housewife.
