    I’d say she came pretty close each time.

    For Primary Colors I’d say she was second. Lynn Redgrave could have been second but I’m not sure how popular that film was (and some criticized it as an Edith Bunker imitation.)

    About Schmidt. Probably second too. Streep could have been second but she was competing with her own legacy. If they were going to give her a third would it really be in supporting when she likely had more Best Actresses down the road.

    Bates should have been nominated for Fried Green Tomatoes too. How Bette Midler got in is a mystery. (Globe traction I guess.)

    Maybe you can transfer this topic to my 2/4 thread? Bates’ popularity here is literally us.

    I think she lost momentum when she lost at Bafta (71st Oscars). I think Moore was the runner up unless they were cosigning her for a Nicholson victory. But he campaigned against himself that year.

    I would but it doesn’t seem like you can delete a thread once you start it as far as I can tell.

    Maybe we’ll get some other interest.

    Kathy was the front runner for awhile until Ms Dench swooped in for the win. A surprising year. So she was second.
    As for Schmidt I think she was second again. Moore had her costars muddling the picture . As for Streep who knows? That s the last time i saw Cage truly good, and no-one was as good as Chris Cooper.
    I’d still place Streep below Bates.

    Streep was second. Bates was third. That whole season when Zeta wasn’t in category Streep won. Also, have to remember that Was before started her late career award run. All predictors that year called it between zeta and street. When she won golden globe even she was surprised Bc she hadn’t won in such a long time.

    Bates was closest for Primary Colors. But then Dench came in the picture

    She was most likely second for Primary Colors as she won SAG for it. But there was no way she was 2nd for About Schmidt. Streep had won the Globe and was an obvious alternative to Catherine Zeta Jones. It was the type of performance that highbrow voters would fall all over.

    This is just a personal thing but I didn’t like Streep in this one. I wish the gator got her and not Cooper. I remember her shock at Globes. I was shocked too. Lol.
    Can never underestimate Streep.

    Bates was probably second for Primary Colors and third for About Schmidt. I think she might have won if Shakespeare in Love had not become a juggernaut. Dench also had residual love from Mrs. Brown to aid in her cameo becoming an award winning role.

    I suspect Streep was firmly in second place for Adaptation. I might be more inclined to believe Bates was a runner up if Nicholson had won SAG or if the film had received more nominations.

    It’s unfortunate that she was overlooked for Fried Green Tomatoes and Dolores Claiborne. The former was an exuberant and joyful comedic performance and the latter was among her strongest dramatic work. She was probably just below Midler in 1991 as she had just won the previous year. The role of Evelyn Couch was borderline supporting and that might have also hindered her chances. Bates and Tandy were swapped categories for nominations at BAFTA. Unfortunately, Dolores Claiborne received mixed reviews and 1995 had many strong female performances that missed nominations, like Kidman in To Die For.

    I loved her in Bonneville. Such a great surprise that movie was.

    I think Bates was a VERY close 3rd for Primary Colors. I think Redgrave just squeaked by her because of more love for Gods & Monsters. For About Schmidt, I think she was 4th. I think Streep and Moore were above her.

    I loved Bates in Fried Green Tomatoes, but I love Midler in For the Boys too (and I read the book Fried Green Tomatoes and the flashback scene was the heart of the book not present day, but I digress). I do love Kathy Bates and hopefully she will get recognition for Richard Jewell.

    I’m feeling more confident about her chances.

    It was possible to win with a lone GG win back then. Bates may have been 2nd or 3rd in 1998, but I wouldn’t discount Redgrave’s GG. SAG was and has always been very into giving one-off wins to veterans they haven’t rewarded yet that don’t translate into Oscars and Gods and Monsters’ upset in Adapted Screenplay signaled larger support for Redgrave’s film.

    Plus it had been over 30 yrs since her last nod. And it was a great film. Plus BAFTA. And Globes.

    Tough year because I think Kathy was close to both Redgrave and Streep.

    Agreed, I think these were close races, especially 98. I just think she was in films with less support than her competition. She lost to women who were in the Best Picture winner, while her films got just 1 other nomination. I was pleasantly surprised she won for Misery, though. What an amazing performance that was!!
