    I was shocked that there wasn’t a thread for the most talked category in award show history (at least on the internet). I think this could be a great place to discuss past winners, nominees, and snubs. This can be a fun place to post our random/unpopular opinions on Best Actress. I will start.

    Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, and Ellen Burstyn were all worthy of winning 3 BA Oscars.

    Last year’s winner should have been Scarlett Johansson when it comes to the nominees. Hilary Swank deserved both Oscars.

    Pam Grier was the best in 1997.

    Here is a link to the YouTube channel Be Kind Rewind. She does great journalism work in mostly discussing the Best Actress category.

    Do you think there was a split in the voting, or do you think Judy was going to win regardless?

    Correct.

    I am interested to know which 3 performance you are referring to conerning those 4 ladies. For me, it would be
    Meryl Streep: Sophie’s Choice, A Cry In The Dark, The Bridges of Madison County
    Katharine Hepburn: Alice Adams, Philadelphia Story and The Lion In Winter
    Ingrid Bergman: Gaslight, Anastasia, Autumn Sonata
    Ellen Burstyn: The Exorcist, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Requiem for A Dream

    Hilary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry is one of the best win ever in this category.

    I would’ve given Meryl a third Oscar for Out of Africa (she totally carried the film on her shoulders) but Geraldine Page was fantastic and nuanced in The Trip to Bountiful. I don’t see Page’s Oscar as a “career Oscar” at all. That was a masterclass from a veteran actress. So she deserved her win.

    Hilary Swank rightfully won for two groundbreaking female roles: playing a transman and a female boxer.

    Jodie Foster did not deserve either of her wins, but Sally Field did deserve both her wins.

    Nicole Kidman’s Oscar should have been for To Die For not The Hours.

    Just taking a look at the nominees, Meryl deserved three Oscars but not for the performances she won for. She should have won for Silkwood, The Bridges of Madison County and Adaptation.
