    Winner: Katharine Hepburn in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
    Other nominees:
    Anne Bancroft in The Graduate
    Edith Evans in The Whisperers
    Faye Dunaway in Bonnie & Clyde
    Audrey Hepburn in Wait Until Dark

    I just watched “The Whisperers” for the first time last night; Edith Evans is outstanding. It has been awhile since I’ve seen the other nominees. Just wondering what people’s thoughts are on this race. I know Edith Evans had won several awards (including The Golden Globe Drama ) for her work. I am thinking she likely placed second after K. Hepburn followed by Bancroft, Dunaway and then A. Hepburn.

    Evans had the critics, the GG and two previous nominations. She was, easily, the second place that year and only lost because Tracy died, we all know that.

    She’s MAGNIFICENT in this role and, by far, the best performance out of the nominees.

    Bancroft is amazing and mesmerizing in The Graduate, she’s my second place. Between Audrey and Dunway, I have to go with Miss Hepburn because it’s a really different performance and really good to be honest, Dunway is a close fourth.

    Hepburn is the weakest here, she’s good but nowhere near the level of the award, and maybe the nomination alone.

    Indeed, Evans was almost certainly runner-up, followed by Bancroft and Dunaway/Hepburn in a close call for 4th/5th.

    My personal ranking would be Evans, Dunaway, Bancroft, (Katharine) Hepburn and (Audrey) Hepburn. I can’t get too worked up about the Hepburn victory though – I do find her immensely entertaining and charming in her film. It’s the other Hepburn IMO who’s the clear weak link.

    Evans is far and away the best in ’67. In fact she may be the best nominee of the 60’s.

    I’ve never seen “The Shop on Main STreet” but want to. I agree that Edith Evans was perfection in “The Whisperers” but frankly couldn’t wait for the film to end…certainly not as entertaining or interesting as the other nominees the Best Actress nominees were in.

    Dame Edith Evans deserves this award while Bancroft really could’ve gotten away with a bump down to Supporting. If that happened, I would’ve given her my vote.

    Dunaway getting the nomination was fine.

    As for the two Hepburns, Audrey did well in WAIT UNTIL DARK but I would’ve nominated her for TWO FOR THE ROAD instead.

    Katharine Hepburn had sentimentality on her side to be sure. She may do well when she cries to Tracy about being on her daughter’s side or, more memorably, her tear streamed face as she watches Tracy give his final monologue, but it just doesn’t feel like an Oscar winning performance.

    After watching all of these performances, I am one of the few that will stand by Katharine Hepburn’s win here. Evans deserved it but I truly enjoyed Hepburn in ‘Guess Who.’

    Audrey Hepburn was a mess despite Wait Until Dark being my favorite film of the nominated performances. Anne Bancroft would have been better in Supporting Actress in my personally opinion. Dustin Hoffman was simply the lead person in the film and everyone was secondary (my opinion). Edith Evans was likely 2nd. Faye Dunaway was likely 4th, although I thought she was great in Bonnie & Clyde.

    Whoa. Tough choice. Thinking about it I haven’t changed my mind about Faye. Imo all of them were deserving, regardless of their respective films.
