I know not all these people won but I think it would be interesting to see what Goldderby thinks about these picks.
P.S. There are eleven films that have done this but I could only pick 0 so I dropped Johnny Belinda.October 31, 2012 at 6:41 am #540704
By far………………. A Streetcar Named Desire.October 31, 2012 at 6:42 am #540705

A Streetcar Named Desire (sure), Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf and Reds.October 31, 2012 at 8:57 am #540707

Streetcar, definitely, with From Here to Eternity probably the strongest possibility after that (although Hepburn was a great pick for Roman Holiday).October 31, 2012 at 12:16 pm #540709
Is it about the best emesemble or the best picture among them? Those are different things.
Either way, I’d go with “Bonnie & Clyde”. But if it’s picture, “Sunset Boulevard” should be getting more votes than “A Streetcar Named Desire”.October 31, 2012 at 1:07 pm #540710
Impossible choice for me. These ensembles kick ass. All of them.October 31, 2012 at 1:56 pm #540711
I would have picked Network, but they should have nominated Duvall instead of Ned Beatty. Duvall, hands down, gives his best performance ever in this film. He never takes center stage but is like a slowly brooding volcano.
Sunset Blvd. features some stellar lead performances and a great supporting bit from von Stroheim, but Nancy Olson is a bit bland in the film.October 31, 2012 at 3:36 pm #540712
I’d say the easiest choice here is A Streetcar Named Desire.
Closely following would be Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (with the weakest link being George Segal), Reds, Network, and Bonnie & Clyde.October 31, 2012 at 7:53 pm #540713
I went with From Here to Eternity. As great as Streetcar was, I think Eternity is an overall smother more coherant film deserving all four awards.November 5, 2012 at 9:36 am #540714
Network. Somehow, all five of them should have won, plus Duvall.
