    How would you rank the nominees and what’s your personal lineup?

    For me it’s:
    1. Diane Keaton – Reds
    2. Susan Sarandon – Atlantic City
    3. Katharine Hepburn – On Golden Pond
    4. Marsha Mason – Only When I Laugh
    5. Meryl Streep – The French Lieutenant’s Woman

    My personal line-up:

    1. Isabelle Huppert – Lady of The Camelias
    2. Jutta Lampe – Marianne and Juliane
    3. Diane Keaton – Reds
    4. Sissy Spacek – Raggedy Man
    5. Jessica Lange – The Postman Always Rings Twice

    Honorable mentions:

    Isabelle Adjani – Quartet
    Barbara Sukowa – Lola
    Isabelle Adjani – Possession
    Catherine Deneuve – Hotel America
    Katharine Hepburn – On Golden Pond

    I consider Sarandon as 1980 and Smith in Quartet as supporting. Otherwise both could have made it.

    At the time I remember that I really wanted Marsha Mason to win for “Only When I Laugh”……now I’m not so sure after having recently seen that film as well as “Reds”, “Atlantic City” and “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” since the pandemic started. “On Golden Pond” is a great film that I’ve seen a few times.

    My rankings now would be:
    1. Katharine Hepburn
    2. Marsha Mason
    3. Diane Keaton
    4. Meryl Street
    5. Susan Sarandon

    3. Judy Davis, Winter of Our Dreams
    4. Katharine Hepburn, On Golden Pond
    5. Bernadette Peters, Pennies From Heaven

    I also have Sarandon in 1980, but in supporting.

    1. Susan Sarandon
    2. Marsha Mason
    3. Diane Keaton
    4. Katharine Hepburn
    5. Meryl Streep

    My personal choices:

    1. Sissy Spacek, Raggedy Man
    2. Lisa Eichhorn, Cutter’s Way
    3. Kate Nelligan, Eye of the Needle
    4. Susan Anspach, Montengro or Pigs and Pearls
    5. Marsha Mason, Only When I Laugh

    **I have Susan Sarandon in Altantic City listed in 1980 selections. But if Atlantic City was a 1981 film she would be no. 1.

    Based on actual nominees:

    #1-Sarandon
    #2-Keaton
    #3-Hepburn
    #4-Streep
    #5-Mason

    My personal lineup:

    Isabelle Adjani, Quartet
    Isabelle Huppert, Lady of the Camelias
    Diane Keaton, Reds
    Bernadette Peters, Pennies From Heaven
    Sissy Spacek, Raggedy Man

    **Sarandon would’ve been a worthy winner in both 1980 and 1981. I, too, have her as my Supporting win in 1980.

    Why do some people consider Atlantic City a 1980 release? It didn’t play in the US until 81 so that is what the Oscars go by.

    I just watched it again when it was on TCM. I’d always wondered about Sarandon’s category placement (the story that she voted for herself in supporting etc.)

    I think she is definitely a lead. It seemed to me she had almost as much or maybe even more screen time than Lancaster.

    My ranking would be

    Keaton
    Hepburn
    Mason
    Sarandon
    Streep

    (and Faye Dunaway should have been a nominee.)

    Some of us go by first commercial release date anywhere in the world, some people go by imdb date and no doubt there are other reasons people make their choices to determine their respective year placements. Though Atlantic City didn’t play in the US until 1981 it opened in France, West Germany, Canada & Italy in 1980.

    Faye’s work in Mommie Dearest would have been a great choice too.

    Re: Winter of Our Dreams, Pennies From Heaven, Cutter’s Way & Eye of the Needle.

    All those titles are worthy tracking down. Winter of our Dreams & Cutter’s Way are two of the most bleakest films ever made. Pennies From Heaven though a musical is also rather bleak – great stuff.

    Bernadette Peters won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her performance.

    Faye Dunaway should have been nominated at the very least. Hers is probably still the most talked about from that year.

    Meryl Streep is one of the best actresses. I’d vote for her to win everything.

    What category do people think Sarandon belonged in? Lead or supporting?

    She famously voted for herself in supporting and was shocked she got a lead nomination. I assume she was campaigned in supporting if that is where she voted for herself.

    1. Keaton

    2. Sarandon

    3. Hepburn

    4. Streep

    5. Mason

    Keaton definitely deserved Oscar #2 here. She was spellbinding in Reds.  Sarandon is my personal #1 for supporting. Also, Bernadette Peters should’ve been here instead of Mason(who was in a terribly uneven film).
