    I love all of them. But Network is tops.

    I’ve seen two of them, and hear she was great in the third. She was very good in Network but I just have to give it Chinatown. She was incredible in that movie and completely held her own against Jack Nicholson, and honestly in my opinion outshined him in some scenes. It’s honestly one of my favorite film performances.

    Dunaway is, in my opinion, the best (and my favorite) actress from the New Hollywood (late 1960’s-early 1980’s) era, though there is quite a bit of close competition.

    Of these performances, her performance in Chinatown is noticeably weaker than the other two (even though Chinatown is probably the strongest film of the three overall). It’s definitely hard to choose between Bonnie and Clyde and Network. Both are ensemble films starring wonderful actors, and I’m going with Network simply because of how great the character was and how great of a job she did building said character.

    I just wish she hadn’t stopped making quality films and giving worthy performances after her win. With her skill and her renown in the industry at the time, she could have won many more Oscars.

    They’re all worthy, though I grant that Chinatown isn’t quite as much a showcase for her as the other other 2 performances are. Still, while Network was more than deserving of getting her the commendation, I found myself riveted by her work in Bonnie and Clyde.

    Network. But she was nominated for 3 excellent performance and I would be ok with her winning for all of these roles, that a good achievement.

    Network. Dunaway is a wonderful actress, but I think that her role in Network was the most well-developed. Her characterization made it shine.
