    Very weak year in Best Actress in my opinion. Hence Emma Thompson winning in a major landslide. I will say McDonnell was an underrated gem though. Stone should’ve been in this lineup.

    Wasn’t this the year that was considered one of the weakest years for women in the history of the Academy Awards? I remember this being the year that the SAGs, Oscars, and Golden Globes had basically different line-ups for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress categories, mostly because this is the year I remember Kyra Sedgwick getting a Globe nom for Best Supporting Actress.

    There wasn’t a SAG awards for the ’92 award season.

    This was far and away an easy win for Emma Thompson, whose win is still among the greatest in the history of the category. It is one of those rare instances where a truly subtle and internal performance was recognized over the typical flashy performances that normally win.

    Mary McDonnel was definitely strong in Passion Fish. She makes a strong second choice.

    The great EMMA THOMPSON was so far ahead of the field in performance
    and precursors..that she was quite an easy choice as best actress…she actually
    was the only 1 deserving of a nomination….although i do the love the film Lorenzo’s Oil
    but i didnt care for Sarandon in it..
    DENEUVE—-  she was awful….
    MCDONNELL AND PFEIFFER… 2 TV movie- like films and very weak performances..
    Thank goodness for Thompson’s win!!!

    Oops, I made a mistake LOL

    Deneuve and Sarandon are far AHEAD* of their competition, but I can’t complain about an Oscar for the great Emma Thompson (in a borderline supporting performance).

    There’s no borderline she’s head of the ensemble.

    Thompson won in a landslide and deservedly so.

    It’s one of those years where an amazing performance emerges in a weak field (Heath Ledger, Christoph Waltz in 2010, etc)

    Interesting to note that every actress nominated is a wondeful actress that all gave, in their nominated films, their weakest performances (except McDonnell who is a safe but distant second).

    If there’s a lead, it’s Bonham Carter.

    I don’t think you know what a lead is.

    Pfeiffer is the only real weak link to me…overall not an incredibly strong lineup, but not a bad one either.  Thompson is the only choice for a winner though.  I thought Deneuve and McDonnell were strong.  Sarandon very good.

    1. Thompson
    2. Deneuve
    3. McDonnell
    4. Sarandon
    5. Pfeiffer

    Great group of actresses, very weak work.

    Thompson of course was terrific in Howards End, and was very lucky to be up against this lineup because she probably couldn’t have won against any of the other winners of the 90’s (even the bad ones).

    McDonnell and Pfieffer are distant.

    Emma Thompson was the only actress really worth voting for in 1992. Hence my vote goes to Thompson.
