1. Hepburn. Takes one of the most notoriously difficult playwrights of the twentieth century to the mat, abdicates the role of movie star for that of an earnest actor, and gives perhaps her most indelibly haunted performance.

2. Davis. Admittedly, a bit of a love-hate relationship for me with this performance. One day, I see the vulnerable artistry Davis weaves into the performance; other days, all I can see is its bombastic grotesquerie.
  
3. Bancroft. Not so much a case of socking it between the eyes as much as it is canny calibration throughout the performance.... Lets just enough out without ever going for blatantly obvious effects. Laudable.

4. Page. Luckily, you can be overripe with Tennessee Williams and get away with it... But for all of Page's percolating theatricality, she does manage a poignant underline to the character that a lesser woman would have lost.

5. Remick. Tries so hard, and is often commendable for the trying... But it's very tough to steal a movie from Jack Lemmon, although Remick gives a surprisingly sturdy account of herself in the attempt.

Great lineup with only Remick not quite reaching the level of the other ladies, but very good nonetheless.  I can easily go for any of my top three for the win, but will stay with the oscar's choice as Bancroft is my favorite actress ever and she is sublime.

1. Bancroft
2. Davis
3. Hepburn
4. Page
5. Remick

One of the best lineups ever. Shamefully I've never seen Hepburn (Despite owning the DVD).

What a great lineup. Honestly any of these women (except maybe Remick) were worthy enough to win......but in the end, I will give it to Katharine Hepburn, whose work in this film (along with Alice Adams and The Lion in Winter) is my favorite performance of hers ever. It also doesn't hurt that she plays one of the best characters ever written for the stage by one of the best writers to have ever lived. If forced to rank them, my list as of today would be:

#1-Katharine Hepburn
#2-Anne Bancroft
#3-Bette Davis
#4-Geraldine Page
#5-Lee Remick

It's the best performance of Katharine Hepburn, she should've won.

I would agree with the above rankings.
