    In my opinion Sissy Spacek is a much better actress than Frances McDormand. I might include Diane Keaton in that statement also.

    Frances McDormand is a legend, in my opinion. She’s not Meryl Streep, but she’s a legend nonetheless. She’s about to be one of only a handful of actor and actressess to be nominated for an Oscar in four straight decades. She’s given many great performances and actors love her.

    I love Frances McDormand, but she should not have won that (still deserved) first Oscar, there were at least two more people more deserving than her that year she won (I preferred Watson to have won).

    Spacek is a legend, arguably one of the greatest of all time, and she (and Tom Wilkinson) were robbed for “In the Bedroom”.

    Between these two, IMO Spacek takes it, but McDormand is terrific in her own right, if a bit limited in terms of range. They are both great though, and McDormand would be worthy of her impending second Oscar.

    She hasn’t done a film since 2012, so it’s normal she has not been nominated, you know…

    For what it’s worth, I think Mary Tyler Moore should’ve prevailed in 1980 (with Spacek winning in 2001).

    Um, 3 Oscars for what?

    Faye Dunaway, Ellen Burstyn, and Susan Sarandon have far more talent, and they all have 1 (my personal opinion)

    Mary Tyler Moore was wonderful in Ordinary People. I agree with that. I still think there are actresses who don’t even have one Oscar who are just deserving of McDormand having two.

    I knew McDormand would win two. But I didn’t suspect she would again in Best Actress. All of her previous nods except her winning one were supporting. I hate she beat Thompson, Hunter, and Bates to second Best Actress wins. Those three at best can hope for supporting nods in the future.
