    God this film was a bore and the ‘surprise’ plot twist is a real roll the eyes back moment when viewing.

    Glenn Close deserves better than this tripe.

    Glenn Close should have won for Fatal Attraction and Cher should have been nominated for Mask.

    Who would you bump from the 85 lineup for Cher?

    Funny enough, it was during Kidman’s flop years that I grew to seriously appreciate her as an actress. I think it was Rabbit Hole that did it.

    To add a bit more to the Streep, Lange, and Close being in a trinity:

    Close has three Tony awards and three Emmys. Jessica Lange has one Tony, three Emmys, and two Oscars. Meryl Streep has three Oscars and two Emmys. Lange and Streep are practically the same age being like a month apart with Close being about two years older. So they really can be in a trinity. Their career trajectories are very similar in how they started and continued their careers, and all three are not close to being done. And yet they’re such different actresses.

    I feel bad they never saw fit to give Close an Oscar in the early half of her career.

    It is so strange that Cher wasnt nominated for Mask, given that she had been nominated previously and the performance was a WINNING performance

    Cher’s very public feud with director Peter Bogdanovich did her no favors in ’85.

    Especially when she was on fire. 5 nominations in the 80’s (Streep got 6) and several classics performance, especially Fatal Attraction (Alex Forrest is #7 on the AFI villains list, right after Nurse Ratched of Cuckoo’s Nest). The way she was snubbed in ’87 and ’88 doesn’t make any sense

    Is it confirmed that Best Popular Film will be at the upcoming Oscars? Or it will be the next in 2020?

    I think the upcoming Oscars, unless the Academy decides to discontinue the category due to the massive backlash.

    In 1985, I would have easily taken Anne Bancroft off the ballot as I found her performance to be forgettable and was surprised she was nominated for it. However, I think I would have put Mia Farrow in for The Purple Rose of Cairo over Cher for Mask. The other four nominees were VERY strong and deserved their nominations.

    ^agreed, though odds are Lange (whose Sweet Dreams underperformed both critically and commercially), not Bancroft, was fifth for a nomination.

    You are most likely right. But Lange was so good even if she lip-synched her songs. I can’t get over how she squeels out “Charlie!” I know she was second in the National Society of Film Critics vote for Best Actress, but I’m sure that didn’t matter for the Oscars.

    Bancroft in 1985 was category fraud, Jane Fonda was the actual lead…

    I would have bumped Anne Bancroft for Agnes of God.
