    With buzz on Chadwick Boseman’s performance from Ma Rainey’s, it seems he will join the elite club of actors to get an Oscar nom posthumously. (Though that is to be seen)

    What is your personal favorite? 🙂

    “Posthumous performance” would literally mean that the actor has risen from the dead to give a performance, and I’m guessing that’s why Eddy Q. finds the wording confusing or at least funny. That’s why I find it confusing / funny anyway.

    Oh sorry for the confusion. I was trying to see who out of these 7 people that were posthumously nominated for an Oscar was their favorite.

    Incidentally, I would have flopped big time at my local pub’s movie quiz night had they asked which two films Jimmy Dean was posthumously nominated for. Giant is an obviousity but I would have bet my grandfather’s corpse on the other one being A Rebel Without a Cause and not East of Eden.

    I hope Elia Kazan is burning in Hell, but…damn, East of Eden is quite the show, and Dean is phenomenal.

    For those that are curious how they died
    Ledger, Eagels- drug overdose
    Dean- road accident
    Triosi, Finch, Richardson, Tracy- heart attack

    If Boseman is nominated,
    Boseman- colon cancer

    Most of these are great. The only one that I don’t think is, is the first person to do this and the only female. Doesn’t help that it was at the advent of sound but if Eagels stage performance of “The Letter” was like this then I don’t understand the fuss she was given for it.

    I almost went with Heath Ledger, but I decided not to deny Spencer Tracy. That speech at the end is so incredibly great I can’t deny iy.

    Isn’t Eagels’s film considered lost?

    Peter Finch was my favorite performance from Network. I am glad he won.
