    Tatum O’Neal was only 10 years old when she won the oscar for Best Supporting Actress for Her wonderful performance in Paper Moon. Its obvious to me she is a co-lead with her father and should have been nominated in lead actress. I never understand why awards bodies always nominate childrens performances in only the supporting categories when a lot of the time they deserve to be in the lead categories. Tatum is very much a lead, but what do you all think is she a lead or supporting?

    She was definitely lead – and brilliant in the film. Would have been a deserving nominee in the leading category, but that was a very strong lineup, and the weakest nominee (Jackson) won.

    This is in contention for being the biggest category fraud of all time.

    It certainly wasn’t a bad performance by any stretch of the imagination but I do wish she could’ve been in Lead and that way I would’ve given an Oscar to her co-star Madeline Kahn.

    O’Neal was definitely lead. I still hoped Madeline Kahn would have won on Oscar night. She deserved to. I don’t think Tatum O’Neal would have been nominated in the Lead Actress category because every one who was nominated deserved her spot. I consider that year the best ever for Lead Actress. Glenda Jackson deserved her win but so did the other nominees – Ellen Burstyn, Barbra Streisand, Joanne Woodward and my choice Marsha Mason.
