thoughts? I’m going with Margaret O’Brien, though Jodie Foster comes in at a close 2nd place. Mary Badham is in 3rd for me, IMOOctober 18, 2012 at 9:17 am #540346
Saoirse Ronan – AtonementOctober 18, 2012 at 9:24 am #540347
Either Ronan or Breslin. And they were actually nominated while Wallis – at least by now – isn’t. And Margaret O’Brien got the Juvenille Award, right? That’s not exactly an Oscar. Odd selection. Among listed that would be Hailee.October 18, 2012 at 9:35 am #540348
Saoirse Ronan – Atonement (my winner back in 2007)October 18, 2012 at 11:00 am #540349
For me it’s a tie between Mary Badham and Keisha Castle-Hughes.October 18, 2012 at 11:02 am #540350
It actually was a harder choice than I expected it to be but I did give it to Anna Paquin because that whole movie is so haunting and she was very intriguing in that part.October 18, 2012 at 1:14 pm #540351
I gave it to Mary Badham. She was just so real and natural and made Scout come to life. (connections to my beloved home state didn’t hurt haha)
But this was quite a good list. More young female nominees than males it seems.October 19, 2012 at 4:00 am #540352
It has to be PATTY DUKE in THE MIRACLE WORKER.
one of my all time favorite supporting actress winners..October 19, 2012 at 4:20 am #540353
Anna Paquin and Patty DukeOctober 19, 2012 at 4:47 am #540354
Of the ones listed, I chose O’Neal who I felt was the most natural.
Not listed, always loved Ann Blyth as Veda in Mildred Pierce and
the stylized and over-the-top reading by Patty McCormick as
Rhoda Penmark in The Bad Seed.October 19, 2012 at 9:14 am #540355
@Hollis, I would have loved to included Patty, especially after her brief appearance in The Master (not to forget her appearance in Frost/Nixon). However, I did not think many people would remember her. I included some long-forgotten juvenile recipients in the male version of this poll, but only to get up to that magical, but limiting, number of 10.October 19, 2012 at 1:14 pm #540356
Patty McCormark – The Bad Seed.
At least she was nominated. Sorry Margaret O´BrienOctober 19, 2012 at 1:39 pm #540357
Then, Anna Paquin, Mary Badham, and Tatum O’Neal.October 20, 2012 at 4:29 pm #540358
Patty Duke with Tatum and Jodie close (tied) 2nd.
