    Winner: Diane Keaton, Annie Hall
    Other nominees: Anne Bancroft, The Turning Point
    Shirley MacLaine, The Turning Point
    Marsha Mason, The Goodbye Girl
    Jane Fonda, Julia

    This was a great lineup. My personal preference was Marsha Mason but wondered what others thought. I am thinking in the voting Shirley MacLaine may have placed second (long overdue). All 5 were excellent.

    I miss the poll function :/

    Bancroft and MacLaine were the two best things about an otherwise unforgivably sappy and shallow film, but for a performance to warrant a win (or even a nomination) the movie has to be of acceptable quality. I would not have rewarded anyone for the turkey that is The Turning Point.

    Mason was fine in a forgettable crowd-pleaser. Julia I have not seen yet.

    Keaton, though, was in a class of her own that year. Her turn was touching, funny and feisty, and while she made it look light and effortless, the role was actually seriously challenging and profound. The movie is unforgettable largely thanks to her.

    First off, it’s a freaking travesty Shelley Duvall (3 Women), Gena Rowlands (Opening Night) and Lily Tomlin (The Late Show) were not here – they’re vastly superior to all of the Oscar nominees.

    With that said, of the Academy’s picks, I’d go with…Mason, I guess? I think all five of them are merely “pretty good.” And yeah, I imagine MacLaine was probably runner-up, though considering how little they liked The Turning Point, I’m not terribly confident about it. It could’ve been Mason or Fonda.

    O I dunno. Bancroft is incredible in everything, but she made me laugh when she pretended to be able to dance, frankly. We KNOW Shirley can.
    All of the nominees are wonderful, but I’m with Diane, who also had Looking for Mr Goodbar that year.

    I think Shelley Duvall should have been a nominee for 3 Women, and I also enjoy Irene Papas eating the scenery (and a human liver, from what I recall) in The Message — I also think Keaton’s one-two punch that year is fantastic and made for a deserved win.

    But my personal choice would be Gena Rowlands in Opening Night, which I think is even better than her more popular Cassavettes collaboration from ’74 and one of the very best of the decade.

    Shelley Duvall should’ve won for “3 Women”, or even Spacek. But I’m fine with Keaton taking it.
