    Welcome back to another round of Lead or Supporting! This time around we have the fantastic Louise Fletcher in her iconic oscar winning role as the vile Nurse Ratched. I know she doesnt have a lot of screen time but the impact she makes in her few scenes are so attention grabbing that you can help but completely focus on her. She easily goes to to toe with Jack Nicholson which is no easy feat. In my opinion shes a coolest right along Nicholson and she fully deserved her Best Actress win. What do you all think of her iconic performance?

    Supporting, but I don’t really mind the lead placement.

    I think like with Anthony Hopkins it is a supporting role but the impact is so great that it is ok that it is in lead.

    If she wasn’t in lead who do you think would have won? I guess Isabelle Adjani was a strong contender but Ann-Margret could have won as a makeup for losing for Carnal Knowledge and being a bigger star and not in a foreign language film like Adjani.

    Kind of adventurous for them to nominate Ann-Margret for a film like Tommy. If the sixties were kind of conservative with stuff like John Wayne and Oliver! winning the seventies got really more interesting with the Academy getting more daring with stuff like The Exorcist and Carrie.

    (and Ann-Margret is surprisingly good in Tommy)
