    Anne Baxter was lead in All About Eve, and correctly placed. The movie revolves around her, and she’s in big portions of the film that Bette Davis is absent in (especially the second half). It was wrong I suppose for her to get greedy and deprive Davis a third Oscar, but she wanted what was right- correct placement. 

    I honestly think Davis’s behavior to her costars and colleagues cost her a third win. Every time I hear about working with her, it’s been bad news. She cursed out Celest Holm on the first day without even knowing her, and yep- Holm was already an Oscar winner and therefore- a voter too. I bet Ms. Holm didn’t check off Bette Davis’s name for Best Actress in 1950, despite her being a costar.

    That is interesting how many women in the 70s got lead nominations for supporting work. 

    Aside from those women cited above it seems like category came down to how big a star you were.

    I’ve read Michael Caine now admits that the reason he didn’t attend when he won for Hannah and Her Sisters was because he was a bit offended by being in supporting. He felt he was a leading man and not a supporting actor.
