    The World According to Garp: Second place, for sure (Great performance)

    The Big Chill: Probably third place.

    The Natural: Fourth place.

    Fatal Attraction: I would say second place, but I alternate between Close and Hunter for second place.

    Dangerous Liaisons: Definitely second place. She would have been a worthy winner.

    Albert Nobbs: Fourth place.

    I loved Jodie Foster in “The Accused” but that Oscar could have been given to Glenn Close or even Sigourney Weaver.

    Close (and Weaver in supporting) are still odd about 1988. I guess Jodie Foster’s narrative about the comeback after the whole Hinckley thing and how hard The Accused was on her to make won her the award. (She is pretty great in the film but it was kind of a flop and Liasons was a Best Picture nominee and nominated in so many other categories so it still is surprising Close lost.

    I’m not so sure Kirkland was really in second place in 87. (she tried for years to create that rumor that she was but how would she know?) It’s a small film and she was pretty unknown prior to it. It just seems odd that many people would vote for her. Hunter may have been second on the basis of her film’s popularity and may have got the NY vote for being a stage actress turned movie star. (and she was pretty awesome in it too.)

    Jodie Foster was 26 that year. Glenn Close was 41.

    Oscar voters have long demonstrated a preference for younger actresses for its leading prize.

    I think people’s personal opinions may have ranked Kirkland second or first that year, but I’m not seeing how she placed second on the ballot. She was unknown, and I’m not sure how many people saw that ultra independent film or even considered it when checking off the ballot. Her sheer shamelessness in campaigning got her a nomination, but I think that was it.

    Well, it’s certainly plausible Kirkland ranked as low as fourth. My hunch, however, especially given the failure of Broadcast News and Fatal Attraction to score any prize on Oscar night, is she indeed placed runner-up.

    For my money, had enough voters actually seen Anna, Kirkland would have triumphed for sure. Some, like Gena Rowlands, said they even voted for her despite not seeing the film. Kirkland was able to reach enough HFPA members to earn the win at the Globes – the Academy, of course, is a far larger beast to crack. She famously, however, hosted a plethora of screenings at (her godmother) Shelley Winters’ house, where they showed the picture to all of the old-timers in the Academy. I bet she received a fair amount of votes.

    I guess Kirkland did get a bunch of votes but I wonder if her campaigning turned off some voters. She can seem kind of desperate. That supposedly is the reason often theorized as to why Sigourney Weaver lost for Working Girl. Her studio campaigned so hard for Gorillas in the Mist that some guess voters got sick of hearing about her and she lost votes.

    I have to look up Anna. I saw it once but don’t quite remember too much of it. It is kind of a lost film.

    She was definitely the runner up for Dangerous Liaisons

    I chalk up the Best Actress loses for Close in the 80s as taking her for granted while being invested in the narratives of the eventual winners.

    Yes Cher and Jodie Foster both had strong narratives. Cher turning her career around and having three big films in 87 (plus being overlooked for Mask but being a good sport and showing up in the exotic head dress outfit to present anyway)

    and Foster had the whole real life trauma she went through that sort of was similar to the movie.

    Plus Close was nominated so much they probably figured she’d be back the next year and on and on.
