    Since the Best Actress one was fun.

    I’d have to go with the much discussed 1982 group:

    Teri Garr (Tootsie)— just perfectly funny and touching too.
    Glenn Close (Garp)—first film! Unique performance of an unusual character.
    Kim Stanley (Frances)-great
    Lesly Ann Warren–funny but most startling since she had never done anything like this kind of character

    and Jessica Lange—yes it is a makeup for not getting lead but she really is quite good in the film. She brings a complicated sadness to the film and her hurt and anger are palpable in the final scene when she sees Hoffman on the street. Even without Frances I think this is ok as an Oscar winning role.

    A few to choose from:

    1939: de Havilland, Fitzgerald, McDaniel, Oliver, Ouspenskaya
    1956: Dunnock, Heckart, McCambridge, McCormack, Malone
    1962: Badham, Duke, Knight, Lansbury, Ritter
    1992: Davis, Plowright, Rredgrave, Richardson, Tomei

    If pressed for the best, I’d go with 1939.

    From the previously mentioned years I like 1978, 1988 and 2001 the most, plus 2008 was notable as well. Haven’t seen Tom and Viv but I also like the 1994 lineup.

    The all-time best is hard for me to decide, but of this decade, I like best the 2013 lineup of Sally Hawkins, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts and June Squibb.

    1972
    Jeannie Berlin, The Heartbreak Kid
    Eileen Heckart, Butterflies are Free****
    Geraldine Page, Pete n Tillie (my choice)
    Susan Tyrell, Fat City
    Shelley Winters, The Poseidon Adventure
    All were great and any one would have been a deserving winner.

    I agree 1972 and 1978 are excellent years.

    1981 is good too.

    Melinda Dillon is very touching.
    Jane Fonda is a little tense but the performance works what with the whole back story of working with her actual father.
    Joan Hackett gets all the humor and vanity of the character.
    Elizabeth McGovern makes the character nicely goofy when in other movies and the musical she is just sort of a beauty.

    and Maureen Stapleton is just phenomenal in Reds.
