Helen Mirren could be this years’ Greer Garson ala Sunrise at Campobello. Big biopic of a celebrated man. Male actor snubbed while actress playing wife is nominated and a very clear front runner.
`I went with Melina Mercouri. From this group her perf is the one I remember best, although all of them gave great perfs imo
There is something awesome about Elizabeth Taylor as the quasi-call girl in BUtterfield 8, so she gets my vote.
I also really like Wendy Hiller/Sons and Lovers.
Jean Simmons gets my vote…she was so robbed of a nomination. Judy Holliday & Wendy Hiller were also robbed actually…I would have nominated those 3 instead of Taylor, Garson & Mercouri. Of the actual nominees MacLaine by a smidge over Kerr.
SHIRLEY MACLAINE gets my vote..a stunning performance of comic timing
mixed with heartbreaking drama…a tour de force…she shouldve won but
Liz had the sympathy vote and after 4 straight nominations.. the academy couldnt
resist giving her the oscar for a good performance in a terrible film…
I agree Taylor was good but was in an awful film. She should have won for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.
Shirley Maclaine all the way!
MacLaine or Kerr.
Shirley MacLaine should have won her Oscar here and not for Terms of Endearment.
