    Rank here the 4 losers for Best Actress in 1995 from the one closest to the win to the one in the 5th place.

    The losers were:

    Emma Thompson in Sense and Sensibility
    Meryl Streep in The Bridges of Madison County
    Sharon Stone in Casino
    Elizabeth Shue in Leaving Las Vegas

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    3. Stone
    4. Streep

    So ironic to see Streep last for her best performance. The Oscars really get it wrong most of the times.

    Shue
    Streep
    Stone
    Thompson (I think since she was getting screenplay and had just won Best Actress voters felt she had had enough—-plus there was some buzz that she was miscast and too old for the role and that Carrington was the film she should have been nominated for)

    Of the nominees, Streep was the best. I can barely finish Leaving Las Vegas because the alcoholism made me sick to the stomach. I’d say Stone and Streep were probably next. Stone was becoming the new it girl and that could have helped her win it.

    1. Stone
    2. Shue
    3. Thompson
    4. Streep

    At this point (1996), I think only Hepburn and Bergman had 3 Oscars, and I don’t think the Academy was in any hurry to give Streep a third one. Thompson was nominated for screenplay and she won that. The Globes weren’t really a “precursor” back then like they are today, but Stone was a major star back then, so I’d say she had the advantage over Shue who only really had critics’ support.

    Glad to see some agree with me that Bridges of Madison County was one of her best roles. Love her in that movie. I remember during that year, she was considered very low in chances of winning. That was a great year for Best actress and many were left off.

    1. Shue
    2. Thompson
    3. Streep
    4. Stone

    The Bridges of Madison County is among my favorite of Streep’s film roles. Her Francesca was so fully developed and her scene as she questions her future with her husband is so intense and well acted. Her eyes are so expressive and her anguish leaves me absolutely gutted. She might have been more competitive if she hadn’t already won two Academy Awards. I also wish the film was stronger, the framing device and many of the scenes with her adult children were a mess.

    Shue was likely first runner-up but I also think that Thompson was more competitive than many of you think. S&S was very popular that year and Jane Austen was having her moment in the sun. She was always winning screenplay but I also think she received support for her acting, including BAFTA and other notices. As mentioned earlier, she also received raves for a Carrington.

    I don’t believe they ever took Stone seriously enough to be in contention. I think the nomination was her reward and Casino was seen by many as being a rehash, it hasn’t been until recently that I think it’s gained in reputation. I personally loved The film and its three core performances. Stone’s Ginger was a tragic mess and I’ve never seen her better.

    Sarandon, Shue, Streep, Stone, Thompson

    This lineup I think its the best one in the 90s and probably in the top five of all time. There are no week or bad performances here.

    After a couple of noms, Sarandon was awarded. Shue was the critics darling and Streep kind of made a “comeback” with Bridges. Thompson was on a high in the 90s and was on demand.

    But Stone, is my ultimate winner. Ginger was such a mess. And the movie is GREAT! Stone was so proud and in shock when she won the GG for drama.

    I miss Sharon Stone on the big screen. She is clearly very talented. What happen to her?

    Maybe I’m slightly biased but I sort of think this was the ranking:

    1. Shue
    2. Stone
    3. Streep
    4. Thompson

    Stone may have won the Globe but I feel like they’ve always loved her while there was also the fact that she probably belonged in Supporting. I also think Shue benefitted not just off being great in LEAVING LAS VEGAS but it also had far more significant support in that it probably just missed out on a BP nomination (much like DEAD MAN WALKING) and got nominated for Director and managed to net a win for Cage.

    I do feel that Thompson, while solid in SENSE, was perhaps a little miscast and that she was a lot better in CARRINGTON.

    As nice of a lineup this is, I still think it should’ve included:

    Nicole Kidman, TO DIE FOR (she should’ve won the damn thing)
    Kathy Bates, DELORES CLAIBORNE
    Jennifer Jason Leigh, GEORGIA

    Was this also the year MURIEL’S WEDDING was eligible? If so, Collete should’ve contended.

    Huh. This was really an easy win for Sarandon when looking at the narratives that year. Streep didn’t need a third, Thompson had just won and was getting another Oscar anyways, and Stone was a supporting role with the nomination being her reward. I guess Shue would’ve been the (distant) runner-up.
