    I went with Ryder. She gave a great star turn in a movie based on a beloved classic. Plus, she gave a great star turn earlier in the year in Reality Bites. That was a great 1-2 acting punch to back up her work in The Age of Innocence.

    Best of the year for me is definately Linda Fiorentino in “The last seduction”.

    Sigourney Weaver in Polanski’s Death and the Maiden belonged in this line-up.

    She’s amazing here.  It’s too bad HBO debut made it ineligible. Reminds me of Carrie-Anne Moss in Memento.  She did win an internet poll award though, which means people did take notice.

    This is the worst lineup in Academy history (Along with 1975).

    Lange wins by default.

    Lange gives a tremendous performance, IMO.  She’s the only one in this lineup that does…  Sarandon is good in lightweight material, as always she gives depth to her character and is great with a humours line.  The rest are extremely tiresome almost from the start.

    1. Jessica Lange, BLUE SKY 
    2. Susan Sarandon, THE CLIENT
    3. Jodie Foster, NELL
    4. Miranda Richardson, TOM & VIV
    5. Winona Ryder, LITTLE WOMEN

    Foster without a doubt. I really liked Lange here. Other three are fillers.

    Probably the worst year in the history of the category with only 1975 coming close to this year’s awfulnees. Lange over acts her heart out here and Blue Sky seems like her warm up for taking on Blanche DuBois. Foster is just plain embarrassing in Nell. And Ryder, Sarandon and Richardson just seem like filler. I guess I’d go with Ryder.

    Great minds and all that.

    Lange was great and so were Foster, Ryder, and Sarandon but Richardson should be replaced by Meryl Streep for “The River Wild” or Glenn Close for “The Paper”. I had to go with Lange.

    In Nell, Jodie Foster gives one of my all-time favorite performances, which I personally would rank just slightly behind her most impressive work which I feel was in Contact (1997). Had she not already been designated a two-time Best Actress Oscar winner at the time she was nominated here for Nell, I think she’d easily have won and would’ve been my personal pick. Ultimately, though, I went with Winona Ryder for all the fine reasons BamaEd listed above in his post.

    My choice for best actress would be New York Critics winner Linda Fiorentino for “The Last Seduction” but she was ineligible so amongst this very weak line-up I would go with Winona Ryder giving a very fine movie star performance in a very good film. Perhaps the only film in this line-up I would want to watch again.
