    Just wondering what your thoughts are……I thought she was great in “Only When I Laugh” but lost the Oscar to Katharine Hepburn (On Golden Pond). Also, I liked her in “Cinderella Liberty” the year Glenda Jackson won for “A Touch of Class”. When nominated for “Chapter Two” she lost (and deservedly I might add) to Sally Field in “Norma Rae”. She was also great in “The Goodbye Girl” but that was Diane Keaton’s year (Annie Hall).

    My favorite performance was her in “The Goodbye Girl”, and she would have made a great winner, but Diane Newton was deserving. Plus, Keaton had Godfather on her resume. She also would have been a great winner with “Only When I Laugh.”

    Not over Keaton. I’ve never seen her other nominated performances.

    Yes! I would’ve given her the trophy for the criminally underrated Only When I Laugh. (I actually wrote about this brilliant performance earlier in the year.)

    Mason’s prior nods were deserving but not quite superior to her competition. For me, she’s third in 1973 (behind Burstyn and Woodward), third in 1977 (behind Keaton and Fonda) and fourth in 1979 (behind Field, Midler and Clayburgh).

    This is Emmy-related, but since this is about Marsha Mason, I’ll say it here: she was robbed of an Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie in Life With Judy Garland: Me And My Shadows as Judy Garland’s conniving mother, Ethel Gumm. Tammy Blanchard’s Emmy win as the young Judy Garland was well-deserved, but Mason should have been nominated alongside her.
