My top 5: 1- Linda Hunt, The year of living dangerously 2- Jane Darwell, The grapes of wrath 3- Ruth Gordon, Rosemary´s baby 4- Kim Hunter, A streetcar named desire 5- Dianne Wiest, Hannah and her sisters
1. Kim Hunter - A Streetcar Named Desire 2. Eva Marie Sant - On the Waterfront 3. Hattie MacDaniel - Gone with the Wind 4. Mo'Nique - Precious 5. Sandy Dennis - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? 6. Maggie Smith - California Suite 7. Ruth Gordon - Rosemary's Baby 8. Anjelica Huston - Prizzi's Honor 9. Meryl Streep - Kramer vs. Kramer 10. Catherine Zeta-Jones - Chicago
For me Mo'Nique put up one of the best suporting performances. I really loved Whoopi Goldberg, Cate Blanchett, Catherine Zeta Jones, Hattie MacDaniel, Sandy Dennis, Macia Gay Harden, and of course Meryl Streep's performances.
My top five aren't on this list :( my vote will go to Hattie McDaniel. Maggie Smith? Marcia Gay Harden? Dianne Wiest? Linda Hunt? Sandy Dennis? Without looking at a complete list, I think those are my top five..
1 - Monique 2 - Patty Duke 3 - Claire Trevor 4 - Ruth Gordon 5 - Penelope Cruz
With special mentions going to Meryl, Tatum, Whoopi, Juliette, Cloris and Shelley for A Patch of Blue. I suspect Jane Darwell should be in my Top 5 but it's been such a long time since I've seen it I can't be certain.
Whilst all of these performances are amazing there have been some absolutely shocking wind in this category.
