    Judi Dench. She also should have won for Notes on a Scandal.

    Judi. Elizabeth was never that fat but Judi captured her imperiousmess and bawdy temperament to a T.

    I don’t begrudge Judi Dench her win but I think I’d give my vote to Lynn Redgrave. Kathy Bates would be up there too.

    A lot of my favorites were snubbed: Joan Allen for PLEASANTVILLE, Lisa Kudrow for THE OPPOSITE OF SEX, Laura Linney for THE TRUMAN SHOW, and Marisa Tomei for THE SLUMS OF BEVERLY HILLS.

    Lisa Kudrow and Joan Allen were robbed of nominations. Lynn Redgrave and Rachel Griffiths are the best of this bunch, but I’d vote for Lynn. Dench’s win was a make-up award and even Judi knew she didn’t deserve, but whatever, she could have won for worst and more forgettable performances than this archetype of character that Stoppard gave to her.

    Definitely Lynn. This is a prime example of one awful win having terrible repercussions.

    Had Judi rightfully been awarded in ’97 there is no way she would have won here and then Lynn Redgrave could have a much deserved Oscar onstead of being snubbed because the Academy felt guilty.

    Brends Bletyn gives one of the worst nominated performances of all time.

    Kathy Bates, hands down, 2nd Oscar worthy.

    Both Mckellen and Fraser were far far “better” than Redgrave, who made me laugh out loud everytme I saw her on the scrreen. She’s been much more memorable in a handful of other films and is unforgettable in Georgy Girl.
    Jmho.

    The final scene should’ve sealed the deal for Redgrave, it was stunning.

    Lisa Kudrow in the Opposite of Sex should’ve won and she wasn’t even nominated. How the hell did Blethyn and Griffiths got in over her and other candidates like her and Joan Allen. 

    Dench was a mediocre winner and I agree that it was just a consolation prize. Should’ve rightfully won it the year before for her powerful performance as Mrs. Brown.

    Of the nominees, Kathy Bates, no question. I usually hate to use the word “heartbreaking,” but that’s exactly what her last ten minutes on screen was. But the true best supporting actress of that year IMHO was Kimberly Elise as an unexpectedly superb Denver in Beloved.

    I’m going for Bates with Dench right behind…  Griffths was very good. I am a fan of Lynn Redgrave for sure, however, not all that crazy about her performance here.  Blethyn made me want to kick myself in the head.

    1. Bates
    2. Dench
    3. Griffiths
    4. Redgrave
    5. Belthyn

    Beverly D’Angelo in American History X. In an already underrated movie her performance is still underrated. She was amazing. Her and Norton both should have gone home with oscars that night
