    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

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

    My personal line-up:

    1. Sissy Spacek, Raggedy Man
    2. Diane Keaton, Reds
    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.

    (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.

    Never heard of these. May take a look later.

    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.

    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).

    From the nominees, Diane Keaton. Meryl also very good in that one.

    Outside of the nominees, I’ll be biased and pick NSFC winner Marília Pera for Pixote. Tho she was really supporting in that.
