    I know Hattie will probably be the favorite, but i have always believed Olivia De Havilland should have won.

    1. Olivia De Havilland
    2. Hattie McDaniel
    3. Geraldine Fitzgerald
    4. Maria Ouspenskaya
    5. Edna May Oliver

    It was petty of De Havilland to tantrum over her loss in this category to her co-star — who obviously wouldn’t be given the opportunity of a leading role to compete in what then at the time was the white woman’s category: Best Actress.

    I would have opted for De Havilland myself, although I consider McDaniel one of the worthiest winners of this Oscar in the Academy’s history.

    (And while Fitzgerald, Oliver and Ouspenskaya are all very good, I would have dispatched them for Greer Garson to be in the right category for “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” Rosalind Russell in “The Women,” and Margaret Hamilton in “The Wizard of Oz.”)

    <<<Russell would have been a great nominee…and frankly Hamilton as the wicked witch is one of the best supporting screen performances ever and would have been my choice had seh been nominated.

    I go back and forth between McDaniel and Fitzgerald this year…also enjoyed Oliver’s performance quite a bit.

    1. McDaniel
    2. Fitzgerald
    3. Oliver
    4. de Havilland
    5. Ouspenskaya

    McDaniel of course! However, had Margaret Hamilton made it into this category, she would have instantly gotten my vote.
