    The options are my personal favorites, I have included “Other” if you disagree.

    Shout-outs:
    Kathy Bates – Primary Colors
    Annette Bening – The Grifters
    Ellen Burstyn – The Last Picture Show
    Glenn Close – The World According to Garp
    Jodie Foster – Taxi Driver
    Catherine Keener – Being John Malkovich
    Helen Mirren – Gosford Park
    Geraldine Page – The Pope of Greenwich Village
    Lily Tomlin – Nashville
    Sigourney Weaver – Working Girl

    I just wrote a whole long list of more deserving performances and then went and deleted it by mistake.

    Anyway this is a really randon list to choose from.

    I’ll go with Cortese from those we can choose but my overall best loser would be Susan Tyrell in Fat City.

    Can those who picked “Other” say who they wanted in a post? I’m curious to see what they picked.

    Honestly… where are Judith Anderson for “Rebecca,”  Agnes Moorehead for “The Magnificent Ambersons,” Thelma Ritter in “Pick-Up on South Street”? (To name only a FEW of the most gourmet prospects missing….)

    A few of these are hard to choose from. I will say Amy Adams because despite me HATING her film, she was truly sublime.

    I do think two of the worst losses ever are for Agnes Moorehead for The Magnificent Ambersons and Thelma Ritter for Pickup on South Street.

    I’m very surprised no one mentioned this one: Angela Lansbury, The Manchurian Candidate.  An incredible performance.

    Amy Adams so shoud have won for Junebug. She lost to Rachel Weisz for The Constant Gardner who should have been in the lead category. Some other great supporting actress performances that didn’t win: Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April), Abigail Breslin (Litlle Miss Sunshine), Toni Collette (Sixth Sense), Marisa Tomei (The Wrester/In the Bedroom), Cate Blanchett (Notes on a Scandal).
