Jul-Jules. She was on fire that year.October 10, 2020 at 4:46 pm #1203770418
Tough because where some had great ones (Lange-Frances, Hunter-The Piano) their other performance weren’t that great to me.
I always loved Sigourney’s 1-2 punch because you can’t get any more different than Diane Fossey and Katherine Parker. Sad she went home empty handed.

I voted for Holly Hunter. I know a few people have commented over the years that “The Firm” was a filler nom. But she was fantastic IMO in that. She made the whole movie with her few scenes.October 11, 2020 at 8:21 am #1203771231
Went for Hunter. She was phenomenal in both The Firm and The Piano even if she had a few scenes in the former like JayDF said.

Scarjo duh. The way she triggered every snowflake on the internet with it was hilarious too.October 12, 2020 at 12:07 pm #1203773191
Lange > Weaver >>>> Blanchett >>>> Scarjo
Haven’t seen both from the rest.
Also, Fay Bantier, Teresa Wright and Barry Fitzgerald are missing from the list.October 12, 2020 at 12:16 pm #1203773222
I can’t get over Pacino’s Glengarry Glen Ross – simply one of his best roles ever.October 12, 2020 at 12:52 pm #1203773294
Julianne Moore really slayed everyone that year. She was stunning in Far From Heaven, and her work on The Hours was also stellar.October 12, 2020 at 1:03 pm #1203773310
Moore, obviously, followed by Weaver and Hunter. And I’m saying this as a Blanchett fanatic.October 12, 2020 at 1:44 pm #1203773403
Jessica Lange. It mightn’t be popular but I think she was brilliant in tootsie in such a beautiful and human way. And it goes without saying that her performance in Frances is beyond iconic and would have easily won her an Oscar any other year where it didn’t have to compete with Meryl in her most acclaimed role.October 12, 2020 at 1:54 pm #1203773436
👑Cicely Tyson (1924-2021)
👑Mary Wilson (1944-2021)October 12, 2020 at 1:58 pm #1203773443
I voted for Weaver since she never won and is likely to go without a competitive win. She’s too iconic to not have at least one major prize on her mantel (Oscar, Emmy, Tony).October 12, 2020 at 2:12 pm #1203773459

I 100% agree. It’s kind of ironic how those who usually criticize Lange for being over the top and hammy can’t appreciate her performance in Tootsie. It’s such a stand-out in her career.
