    Same as 81. How would you rank the nominees and what’s your personal line-up?

    For me, it is:

    1. Sissy Spacek – Coal Miner’s Daughter
    2. Mary Tyler Moore – Ordinary People
    3. Gena Rowlands – Gloria
    4. Goldie Hawn – Private Benjamin
    5. Ellen Burstyn – Resurrection

    Really love the first three but I slightly like Sissy more and Mary is supporting anyway so I left her as runner-up.

    Then, my personal line-up:

    1. Vertamae Grosvenor – Personal Problems
    2. Sissy Spacek – Coal Miners Daughter
    3. Gena Rowlands – Gloria
    4. Fernanda Montenegro – They Don’t Wear Black Tie
    5. Anouk Aimée – A Leap In The Dark

    HM:

    Susan Sarandon – Atlantic City
    Theresa Russell – Bad Timing
    Ingrid Burgoin – Simone Barbes or Virtue
    Isabelle Huppert – Loulou
    Shelley Duvall – The Shining

    I use letterboxd dates and it’s labeled as 1980. In other sources it says 81 or even 83 but I use LB.

    It’s bizarre Shelley Duvall was nomd for a razzie in that role. Could’ve been a nominee

    From the lineup, Sissy had a deserving win.

    And yeah They Don’t Wear Black-tie is a 1981 film, it was the year it released in Venice and Brazil. And only 1983 in the US making it eligible for the 1984 ceremony.

    Burstyn was outstanding in Resurrection.

    This is one of those heartbreaking years where there were many possible deserving winners.

    Spacek gave maybe the greatest biopic performance/impersonation ever. (and she did all her own singing and sounded just like Lynn. I can’t help but compare all future singer biopics to this one.)

    Moore was raw and emotional and cast so against type that it only made the performance more riveting.

    Hawn was so funny. Those scenes where she is in basic training could only be done by a gifted comedic actor. (great physical comedy too)

    Burstyn was also great in a complex role.

    (Rowlands was just ok in my book. I’d have put Shelley Duvall in that slot.)

    BTW Wanda’s typo in the first post brings up some funny images. Shelley Winters in The Shining. Interesting!

    Mary Tyler Moore in Ordinary People wins this for me. Her performance was so subtly real and heartbreaking.

    Oscar noms:

    1. Sissy Spacek – Coal Miner’s Daughter
    2. Ellen Burstyn – Resurrection
    3. Mary Tyler Moore – Ordinary People
    4. Goldie Hawn – Private Benjamin
    5. Gena Rowlands – Gloria

    I go back & forth between Spacek and Burstyn.

    Personal line-up:

    1. Dolly Parton – Nine To Five
    2. Sissy Spacek – Coal Miners Daughter
    3. Ellen Burstyn – Resurrection
    4. Mary Tyler Moore – Ordinary People
    5. Goldie Hawn – Private Benjamin

    OK…I’m obsessed with Dolly and have been since I was 4, a year before this film came out. She’s perfect. No apologies. Otherwise I kept the same line up except Rowlands. She’s good in GLORIA, but she might not squeak out at 6th to be honest. I have both Duvall & Sarandon in supporting for the obvious works that year. I know they are largely considered lead still I see them both in the gray area.

    1. Sissy Spacek
    2. Ellen Burstyn
    3. Gena Rowlands
    4. Goldie Hawn
    5. Mary Tyler Moore (a recent second viewing did not change general dislike of this performance or the film).

    My own personal choice:

    1. Sissy Spacek (Coal Miner’s Daughter)
    2. Theresa Russell (Bad Timing)
    3. Susan Sarandon (Atlantic City)
    4. Shelley Duvall (The Shining)
    5. Ellen Burstyn (Resurrection)

    Coal Miner’s Daughter is the gold standard for musical bio-pics. As Carice said above only Jessica Lange has come close. I can’t think of another since Sweet Dreams that rises to the level of these two films or performances.

    Sweet Dreams has an odd history. Meryl Streep was originally promised it by Karel Reisz her director from French Lieutenant’s Woman. Then he suddenly gave it to Lange. I think Streep would have done her own singing. She always seems hurt by the switch when discussing it.

    I wonder if that is what has also soured her on French Lieutenant’s Woman. She now says that isn’t one of her best performances.

    Lange is very good in it though even if she doesn’t do her own singing.

    I wonder if Beverly D’Angelo was ever considered. She did a good job as Cline in Coal Miner’s Daughter. Guess she wasn’t a big enough star.

    As wonderful as Streep is when singing and matching sounds when speaking I suspect she would have not sounded like Cline. D’Angelo didn’t sound like her very much either. I usually hate when singing roles are dubbed but I forgive this film with Lange bc she looked like Cline so much and of course is a terrific actress.

    Huh, okay I’ll be the first to throw support behind Rowlands 🙂
