    We hear a lot about people who won their Oscars as a consolation prize, an overdue award, or a political trophy.

    But which winners won the award for their best role in their best film?

    Here are some I’d put forth:

    Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce

    Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire

    Who are your picks?

    Katherine Hepburn in The Lion In Winter, saw it a few weeks ago and was mesmerized, the best performance i have ever seen, that is what every actor should desire to reach, that much greatness.

    Thank you!

    I know many people have issues with Hepburn’s wins, but, I will say, she gave one of the best performances ever in The Lion In Winter.

    I think many people have issues with her 2nd win for Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner but The Lion In Winter is flawless and amongst the all-time best. Shouldn’t even have been a tie
