    Solid category. Still not sure how I feel about Stone.

    There have been worse years in this category (cough1994cough) but this category missed some amazing work, including my personal favorite: Nicole Kidman in “To Die For”. Other great performances were Toni Collette in “Muriel’s Wedding”, Jennifer Jason Leigh in “Georgia”, and Kathy Bates in “Delores Claiborne”….and even Annette Bening in “The American President”.

    Emma Thompson was nominated for the wrong movie. Even though SENSE was the big movie for her that year, she was MUCH better in CARRINGTON.

    Sharon Stone had no business being nominated. Her slot should’ve been Nicole Kidman’s.

    Meryl Streep is quite good in BRIDGES. Her nomination was deserved but I wouldn’t give her my vote.

    Susan Sarandon at least won her overdue Oscar for a performance that was worthy, but I actually would give my vote to Elizabeth Shue. 

    I think my personal lineup would’ve been:

    #1-Nicole Kidman, To Die For
    #2-Elizabeth Shue, Leaving Las Vegas
    #3-Susan Sarandon, Dead Man Walking
    #4-Emma Thompson, Carrington
    #5-Meryl Streep, The Bridges of Madison County

    I totally disagree, this still remains one of the best line-ups ever for the category.

    The 5 actresses gave incredible performances and it was a very tough year, Kidman, Leigh, Bates and Collette all gave incredible worthy performances too. At the end of the day I’ve replace Thompson for either Kidman or Leigh, but the other 4 actresses were outstanding, especially Stone and Shue. I would vote for Sarandon, anyway.

    I wouldve replaced STONE with Nicole Kidman in  TO DIE FOR..

    iN ORDER..MY 5 FAVORITE..

    Streep–one of her greatest performances
    Sarandon- she won for 3 reasons…the nobility of the character, she was overdue and she gave a terrific performance
    Kidman- breakout role..shes finally noticed as a great actress
    Thompson- Carrington and Sense and Sensibility—solid in both films
    Shue- not much before and after for her..but this “role” was baity and playing off Cage, she was quite good

    Fine lineup, but I would’ve without a thought replace Thompson (Who was already up for screenplay anyways) and most especially Stone (Someone who had Zero business here, should’ve been nominated for Basic Instinct) with Kidman and Bates. With a lineup like that, any of the five could have won that year for all I am concerned.

    I’m not a crazy streep fan who thinks she should have 20 oscars, however i do think that she should have won this year. Her performance in Bridges of Madison County is one of the best. To this day it’s pretty much the only film that can make me cry every time i see it. And i read the book and she totally nailed the character!

    Meryl should have won for…….

    Kramer Vs. Kramer
    Sophies Choice
    A Cry in the Dark
    The Bridges of Madison county
    Julie and Julia
    The Iron Lady

    (2008 was a great year……. i  would have a 3 way tie between Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Kate Winslet)

    To me this is one of many times that Streep wind by default. She’s not a her best just better than the others.

    Had Kidman or Colette been in they would get my vote easily.

    I’m usually politically correct and give it to Sarandon eventhough I really give it to Streep in my mind.  

    In all honesty, as I’ve said before, this should’ve been her third Oscar.

    Should have been her 4th. 

    What would you have given her Oscars for?

    Me:

    Kramer vs. Kramer
    Sophie’s Choice” (though sometimes I give it to Lange because of reasons given by other Lange and Streep fans, ironically enough; it really should have been a tie; and, yes, I still would’ve given Lange the Supporting Oscar)
    Cry in the Dark“/”The Bridges of Madison County” (either as her third, though a case can be argued for her winning her third for “Cry…” and her fourth for “Bridges…”)

    Susan. Streep and Shue get honorable mentions.

    I’m a sucker for Thompson this year.  Streep is wonderful as usual.  Big fan of Sarandon’s, she plays the moments just right…but the total lack of a cajun accent for this cajun nun gets on my nerves a lil bit.  Shue is very good.  Stone is a more of a mess than her character.

    1. Thompson
    2. Streep
    3. Sarandon
    4. Shue
    5. Stone

    The best performance of the year was Jennifer Jason Leigh in GEORGIA.

    Then, Julianne Moore in SAFE and Nicole Kidman in TO DIE FOR.

    Then, the 5 Oscar nominees.

    My thoughts exactly. I genuinely think she gave the best performance in each of these years.
