Maggie Smith for A Room with a ViewMay 1, 2017 at 5:39 am #1202081324
Tess Harper?! That would’ve been stunning, given she does virtually nothing in that film. I would think Hannah, Woody Allen, Bob Hoskins, Kathleen Turner, Tom Berenger and Maggie Smith.

I guessed Tess Harper out of desperation plust she was overlooked for Tender Mercies. I was going to say Maggie Smith but would they have given her a third? I guess maybe. I don’t particularly remember Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio too well and Piper Laurie was barely in Children of a Lesser God (although I guess she could have won a makeup award.)May 2, 2017 at 7:04 am #1202082403
From Vincent Canby in the New York Times…
Best supporting actress. The nominees are Tess Harper, ”Crimes of the Heart”; Piper Laurie, ”Children of a Lesser God”; Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, ”The Color of Money”; Maggie Smith, ”A Room With a View”; Dianne Wiest, ”Hannah and Her Sisters.”
This would seem to be a three-way race among Miss Mastrantonio, Miss Smith and Miss Wiest. As much as I admire Miss Wiest, I can’t understand how she could be nominated without nominations also going to her ”Hannah” co-supporting stars (if that’s what they are), Mia Farrow and Barbara Hershey. (And if Miss Wiest is to be classified as a supporting actress instead of a star of ”Hannah,” what would you call the remarkable Maureen O’Sullivan in the same film – a supporting supporting actress?) Miss Smith, already the winner of a best-actress Oscar (”The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie”) and one as best supporting actress (”California Suite”), is certainly deserving, as is Miss Wiest. If, by chance, ”Hannah” wins the best picture Oscar, Miss Smith will be given her award for ”Room” – voters like to spread their cheer around. If it’s the other way around and ”Room” wins as best picture, Miss Wiest will get it for ”Hannah.”
My preference is Miss Mastrantonio for the sheer force of her new screen presence in ”The Color of Money.” The winner will be Miss Smith.

Canby’s analysis is odd. Wiest was the total stand out in Hannah.May 3, 2017 at 7:57 pm #1202083811
Hoskins and Smith were the runner-ups, fore sure.May 4, 2017 at 5:43 am #1202084081
Of the Hannah ladies, I actually most like Hershey. Can’t argue with the Wiest win, though.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Room With A View was runner up in Picture/Director.
Supporting Actor is the hardest. Could be any of them.April 29, 2019 at 8:48 am #1202872201
Hannah is an amazing film- Wiest was definitely fantastic but a Hershey nomination not happening is odd. Farrow is actually quite good but the role doesn’t feel substantial enough ironically given the title but that was definitely the point in a way given that Hannah was supposed to be the center of the film in many ways.April 29, 2019 at 3:45 pm #1202873021

Either Siskel or Ebert picked Mary Elizabeth Mastratonio to win too.
Maggie was not winning a 3rd and they rewarded A Room with a View elsewhere so I think MEM may have been second.
Siskel and Ebert both thought Kathleen Turner should have won and considering she arguably gave the best performance and was hot hot hot at that point and the other contenders with huge strikes against them she was runner up to Matlin.
Bob Hoskins was clearly 2nd to Newman. He won EVERYTHING and would have won had Newman already won.
Berenger or Hopper runner up to Caine.

Bob Hoskins won everything. So no way he wasn’t second place.
Kathleen Turner won some awards too and there was probably residual love for Romancing the Stone for which she won some awards as well.
Smith I think is the logical second place from her group.
Dennis Hopper seems like logical choice with Blue Velvet being released that same year and possibly getting a career award. Tom Berenger also seems like a good choice for second place.
I don’t think anybody was beating Caine and Wiest anyway.
Hannah and Allen deserve a second place here, assuming that they ended up there.
