    This one was easy….Frances McDormand. It is not that Kate Hudson was bad, but I really didn’t see her as Oscar-worthy. McDormand will steal every scene she was in, though….but despite this, the actual winner that year (Harden) trumps both of them….but McDormand was my second (or third to Julie Walters) in that category.

    While I agree that Frances McDormand gave the much more complete performance and characterization of the two, there is no denying that Cameron Crowe captured something really special with Kate Hudson. No other director before or since has used her to such great effect, which has been slightly maddening since she was so luminous at moments such as this one in Almost Famous:

    Is Hudson the more technically gifted actor? No. But Penny Lane was just such a perfect bit of casting that it’s no wonder she received the lion’s share of attention and accolades for the film when it was first released.

    Frances McDormand. She was the best thing about Almost Famous while Kate Hudson was underwhelming to say the least.

    Hudson, definitely. This is coming from a guy who has held contempt for her ever since.
