    In 1979, Ingrid Bergman received her 7th and final nomination for her final film role in the swedish film Autumn Sonata. Her co-lead, 2x Academy Award nominated actresss Liv Ullman, was snubbed.

    Do you think, considering the competition, both should have got in?

    Also, between the two performances, which one is your favorite? [Answer in the poll]

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    This is tough because both Liv and Ingrid were fantastic in this movie.

    1978
    Jane Fonda Coming Home – WINNER

    Ingrid Bergman Autumn Sonata
    Ellen Burstyn Same Time, Next Year
    Jill Clayburgh An Unmarried Woman
    Geraldine Page Interiors

    I would have nominated Liv in Lead Actress and removed Ellen Burstyn. I would not have voted for Jane Fonda. My pick would have been between Jill Clayburgh or Ingrid Bergman. Ingrid did not deserve to win Supporting Actress for Murder on the Orient Express.

    Certainly both deserved to be nominated. In terms of my preference, I’ll have to say Bergman by a hair. Ullmann has a heart-stopping monologue and fully convinces in downplaying her natural luminosity, but she’s played roles of greater complexity and subtlety in other Ingmar Bergman films. I sense Autumn Sonata is more interested in Charlotte than Eva (understandably so), and Ingrid Bergman responds in capturing her mass of contradictions, refusing to overplay the few sympathetic elements of her character (which is quite the opposite from most of her Hollywood roles). The subtle gradations that play out on her face during the Chopin Prelude scene are a marvel.

    Ullmann was robbed of a nomination but I also concur that the win should’ve been a battle between Bergman and Clayburgh though I do think the former deserved it by a hair.

    Not wild about Burstyn or Fonda though. Page is certainly a borderline Supporting case but I think her natural quirks and eccentricities worked perfectly for that role.

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen the film but I would’ve considered nominating Aurore Clement for THE MEETINGS OF ANNA.

    Ullman was robbed of a nomaintion for scenes of a marriage too. Movies premiering on tv before theatrical release wasn’t a disqualification yet so snubbing the movie was bizarre and many directors thought scenes from a marriage was robbed of all the possible nominations it could’ve gotten and even had a petition to overturn the academy decision

    Oh yes, she for sure deserved to be nominated for SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE.

    The only real issue was she would’ve had to compete against Gena Rowlands. That, for me, might end up being the most difficult personal vote for me to have to decide on in Oscar history.

    I wonder had ullman been nominated she would’ve won? She came so close to winning the Oscar for both the emigrants and face to face. Had liv been nominated for scenes from a marriage I think liv would’ve won especially Rowland still lose the Oscar to Burystn despite being considered the front runner.
