I just want to see how big Streep’s lead will be.May 13, 2013 at 3:44 pm #544557
It is a very good lineup, although I am not sure I would nominate Winger.
Streep does get my vote fairly easily. Though Lange is the ultimate “If it had been another year” contender.May 13, 2013 at 5:11 pm #544558
I just can’t not vote for Streep.May 13, 2013 at 7:54 pm #544559
I just can’t not vote for Streep.
Double negative.May 13, 2013 at 9:06 pm #544560
One of the biggest oscar questions. Love both Lange and Streep, but it’s no contest for me…Lange’s FRANCES is my choice.
5. WingerMay 13, 2013 at 10:28 pm #544561
An intense lineup! All are so superb.
Voted for Meryl, in a performance which, imo, is at the top tier of great performancesMay 13, 2013 at 11:04 pm #544562
Voted for Lange, though, in my ideal scenario, both would’ve tied for the award and the picture below would’ve been exactly the same with a different headline If I have to pick, though, I’d give it to Lange. Definitely one of the top 10 or even 5 performances of all time. Also, way too relevant to Hollywood, to the media, to “mental illness” and the “treatment” of it, and to various other systems to not be as poignant today as it was when it first premiered. In fact, it’s poignancy has only strengthened with the years and Lange’s performance has only grown hotter, brighter and more iconic. This is one of the reasons she’s a legend; because she actually gives Meryl Streep, in one of her best and one of the best performances of all time, a run for her money. It’s not an insult or hyperbole, but fact. It’s actually a compliment to both these Queens. NOBODY can touch either. Nobody. They’re just perfect, even in their flaws and inconsistencies, and they just shine even brighter when next to each other. The ultimate ying-yang become manifest.May 14, 2013 at 2:07 pm #544563
1. Meryl Streep
2. Julie Andrews
3. Jessica Lange
4. Sissy Spacek
5. Debra WingerMay 15, 2013 at 10:39 am #544564
I watched Frances the other day finally and the performance was raw and honest, but the level of suffering and tragedy communicated in Sophie’s choice makes the decision a relatively eay one.June 27, 2013 at 4:56 pm #544565
Streep, but only by a few inches.August 31, 2013 at 5:52 am #544566
imo the most tight competition in oscar history that didn’t end up as a tie
lange was outstanding, but it is and always will be streep, her sophie’s choice will haunts me till the end of my life
