    Marisa Tomei won the award in a race that could have gone to anyone.

    Judy Davis – Husbands and Wives

    Miranda Richardson – Damage

    Joan Plowright – Enchanted April

    Vanessa Redgrave – Howards End

    I would have voted for Vanessa Redgrave’s utterly moving and evocative turn as Mrs. Ruth Wilcox.

    Richardson’s brief but powerful performance in Damage.

    Love Tomei’s performance and the win, as well. But if I’m being honest with myself, I am drawn more to Davis’ performance.

    Richardson ruled that year, she was in The Crying Game and Enchanted April as well.

    Tomei deserved her win… People really underestimate the difficulty of comedy.

    Miranda Richardson in “Damage.” Bonus points for “The Crying Game.”

    Miranda Richardson. She was really really great in Damage AND The Crying Game, and Enchanted April. She’s THE underrated actress.

    RU: Both Dame Joan Plowright & Vanessa Redgrave

    Marisa Tomei rightfully won. Rex Reed, the bastard that he is, can go screw himself!

    It’s a difficult choice but I would’ve gone with Judy Davis, who was an absolute force of nature in Husbands and Wives. But Vanessa Redgrave was absolutely hypnotising in Howard’s End in what was the definition of a scene stealing supporting performance, so I’d have been equally happy for her to have taken it.

    Emmy FYC!!: Chloe Sevigny (We Are Who We Are), MJ Rodriguez (Pose), Billy Porter (Pose), Emma Corrin (The Crown), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), Maya Erskine (Pen15), Anna Konkle (Pen15), Naomi Ackie (Master of None), Thuso Mbedu (The Underground Railroad), Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown), Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You)

    Even though I would’ve voted for Judy Davis, there is no way to deny that Tomei was hilarious and memorable in MY COUSIN VINNY.

    1. Judy Davis, Husbands and Wives
    2. Miranda Richardson, Damage
    3. Marisa Tomei, My Cousin Vinny
    4. Joan Plowright, Enchanted April
    5. Vanessa Redgrave, Howards End

    Honorable Mentions
    Helena Bonham Carter, Howards End
    Alfre Woodard, Passion Fish

    I had my issues with Husbands and Wives but Davis is AMAZING and she likely lost due to the backlash of the director at the time. As mentioned by various posters above, Richardson was having a stellar year and her major scene in Damage is shattering. Tomei is WORTHY and she makes me smile every time she’s on screen. I’m surprised so many people are drawn towards Redgrave in Howards End. I’ve always felt she was a glorified cameo and only was nominated because she was a name check. I need to revisit this film to re-evaluate her brief performance. I would have easily nominated Bonham Carter from the same film, as I felt she was the perfect actress for that role opposite Emma Thompson. Alfre Woodward SHOULD have also been nominated for her stunning and subtle work as the caring and complex Chantelle.
