For me: 1973
Jeannie Berlin, The Heartbreak Kid
Eileen Heckart, Butterflies are Free
Geraldine Page, Pete ‘n Tillie
Susan Tyrell, Fat City
Shelley Winters, The Poseidon Adventure
Every single one of them would have been a deserving winner.June 30, 2019 at 8:20 am #1202956670
2006, 2007 and 2015 were stacked with five great nominated performances.

2002 as the year of films or the oscar year? Because Kathy Bates didn’t really do anything special in that ugly film. How sad she was nominated for this but not Fried Green Tomatoes and Dolores Claiborne.
Her nude scene placed her over the top for the nod. Listen, Bates’ initial Oscar win was treated like a Cinderella story whereas they weren’t interested in investing in her as a leading lady despite efforts to capitalize off her Misery notoriety from a handful of productions in the early 90s.June 30, 2019 at 4:45 pm #1202957077
For me, it’s 2013.
Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine
Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle
Lupita Nyong’o, 12 Years a Slave
Julia Roberts, August: Osage County
June Squibb, Nebraska
While it’s clearly a Lawrence-Nyong’o fight, the three other actresses however gave decent and lovable performances. I would really not complain if any of them wins.

2019 was fantastic also the year Alicia Vikander won was pretty good
Also the year Penelope Cruz won, it was really anyones game that year
The weakest year was probably when Melissa Leo won and when Viola won (both had amazing performances but everyone else was mediocre)
But in terms of Best Actress… the year Cate Blanchett won for Jasmine and the year Geraldine Page won were the two best in my opinion.June 30, 2019 at 10:47 pm #1202957317
1982 with Lange, Garr, Close, Stanley and Warren is pretty perfect. Anyone of them deserved an Oscar. (yes, even Lange. I like her performance in Tootsie even if she really won for Frances she still did a nice job in Tootsie.)
I like 1979 too with Streep and Candice Bergen standing out but the others all good too.July 1, 2019 at 8:08 am #1202957683
3 very memorable performances. I am satisfied with the winner though.July 1, 2019 at 8:24 am #1202957712
- 1999 was pretty good year too and any of the nominees would have being a worthy winner
