    The Oscar nominees for Best Actress of 1981 were:

    Katharine Hepburn, On Golden Pond – WINNER
    Meryl Streep, The French Lieutenant’s Woman
    Marsha Mason, Only When I Laugh
    Susan Sarandon, Atlantic City
    Diane Keaton, Reds

    Did all of them deserve to be nominated? If you knock out one or two, who would you replace them with? Others who were in the running:

    Sally Field, Absence of Malice
    Sissy Spaccek, Raggedy Man
    Bernadette Peters, Pennies from Heaven
    Carol Burnette, The Four Seasons
    Liza Minnelli, Arthur
    Jill Clayburgh, First Monday in October
    Glenda Jackson, Stevie

    Who REALLY gave the best female acting performance on celluloid that year?

    Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest; she was brilliant! She captures Joan Crawford and this is a movie I enjoy watching…

    My five finalists:

    Faye Dunaway, Mommie Dearest
    Katharine Hepburn, On Golden Pond
    Glenda Jackson, Stevie
    Diane Keaton, Reds
    Marsha Mason, Only When I Laugh

    Marília Pêra in Pixote would be my choice, but I like Meryl’s performance best of the nominees (funny how it’s one of her least personal favorites).

    It wasn’t eligible in ’81 but it should be noted that Isabelle Adjani gave one of the decade’s finest performances in Possession.

    If it was as appreciated, I would’ve picked Faye Dunaway. But out of the list, Meryl would be my choice.
