    In honor of the likely Oscar noms for Laurie Metcalf and Allison Janney, we’re planning to do an article + list + photo gallery about all of the women nominated or won Oscars for portraying a Monster Mom. For example:

    Monique in Precious
    Jacki Weaver in Animal Kingdom
    Jo van Fleet in East of Eden
    Gladys Cooper in “Now, voyager,”
    Meryl Streep, August: Osage County

    Arguments can even be made for these two:
    Elizabeth Taylor, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”
    Katharine Hepburn, “Lion in Winter” (Richard to his mom Eleanor, “You are Medea to the teeth”)

    Who else should we consider?

    Metcalf in Lady Bird isn’t a monster mom – it’s a complicated relationship but do we forget her sewing Lady Bird’s dresses, paying all the bills, picking her daughter up after some heartbreak and hugging her, etc? Nothing she did was illegal (ala throwing a knife at one’s daughter like Janney in Tonya).

    She was nomination worthy over the eventual winner.
