    Janet Leigh is iconic in Psycho and should have won. Given that she won every precursor that existed at the time (albeit it was only the Golden Globe – major critics awards didn’t give supporting prizes until the late 60’s) I can only assume that her loss was a major upset.

    I’m surprised it doesn’t place on more “shocking Oscar losses” or “biggest Oscar upsets” lists.

    Not one of the best lineups in this cat, but not terrible.  PSYCHO is for sure the best film mentioned here and Leigh was good, but I can’t deny that I feel her written character was more interesting than her performance of it.  

    Shirley Knight & Mary Ure are my only real options.  Knight by a slim margin.  Johns was very engaging alongside Peter Ustinov.  Jones, I think, bit off a little more than she could chew.

    1. Shirley Knight, THE DARK AT THE TOP OF THE STAIRS
    2. Mary Ure, SONS AND LOVERS
    3. Glynis Johns, THE SUNDOWNERS
    4. Janet Leigh, PSYCHO
    5. Shirley Jones, ELMER GANTRY

    Johns easily.

    Leigh is just in the most famous film. She does nothing of note performance wise.

    Having said that Jones’ win is completely unfathomable.

    Janet Leigh.   Her facial acting while driving the car and imagining her boss’ discovery that she stiole the money is great.  I also love her scene with Perkins in the back parlor.  I think she nails the whole torn, confused young woman who is trying to exude a tough exterior perfectly.
