As for the other two, to form a trio: Streep and Dench.
1. Meryl in “Sophie’s choice”
2. Cate in “Elizabeth”
3. Cate in “Blue Jasmine”
4. Dame Judi in “Philomena”January 15, 2016 at 2:22 pm #209985
1. Cate Blanchett
2. Kate Winslet
3. Judi Dench
Loved Cate in Carol, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Blue Jasmine.
Winslet stands out in Revolutionary Road most for me.
Dench in Philomena.

10. Greer Garson (Sunrise At Campobello)
Garson sticks out like a sore thumb against those other all time greats. She was the JLaw of the early 40’s hetting nommed for any old shit. Have you seen Blossoms In The Dust? One of the worst Best Actress noms EVER!!!January 15, 2016 at 5:12 pm #209989
1. Bette Davis (1st place for Oscar: Jezebel, The Letter, The Little Foxes, Now, Voyager, All About Eve, The Star, and Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?)
2. Meryl Streep (1st place for Oscar: The Deer Hunter, Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice, Adaptation, and Julie & Julia)

4. Katherine Hepburn (1st place for Oscar: Alice Adams and The African Queen)
5. Cate Blanchett (1st place for Oscar: Elizabeth, The Aviator, Notes On a Scandal, and Blue Jasmine)
6. Geraldine Page (1st place for Oscar: Summer and Smoke)
7. Ingrid Bergman
8. Kate Winslet (1st place for Oscar: The Reader)
9. Jane Fonda (1st place for Oscar: Klute)
10. Greer Garson
Garson was nominated her first 6 times because Louis B. Mayer decreed it, telling all of his employees they better put her name on their ballots or else… it cost Ida Lupino a nomination for The Hard Way, Tallulah Bankhead and/or Gene Tierney a nomination for Lifeboat and Laura respectively, just to name three actresses who got rooked as a result. I like Greer Garson but she didn’t have much of an acting range.
Oddly, my favorite two Ingrid Bergman performances were both released in 1946 and she wasn’t nominated for either of them. Her very best performance was in an insane movie called Saratoga Trunk and her second best was in Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious. She simply was never my own personal #1 any of the years she was nominated (Jean Arthur for The More The Merrier, Barbara Stanwyck for Double Indemnity, Gene Tierney for Leave Her To Heaven, Irene Dunne for I Remember Mama, Deborah Kerr for The King and I, Diane Ladd for Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, and Jill Clayburgh for An Unmarried Woman)January 15, 2016 at 5:41 pm #209990
