    Where’s Kathy Bates as an option? 

    Damn! I knew there was someone I missed!! I’d add her in now but that’d be unfair since all the others would’ve had a headstart on her. I’d love to see her get another! I’d love to see her have a juicy supporting role in a Woody Allen film in like the classic Dianne Wiest role and win for that, it’d be cool to see her play such a larger than life histrionic character.

    Sissy Spacek needs Todd Field to make another film like In the Bedroom with her (though that year I would have went with Kidman). 

    I’d love to see this happen! I’d love to see Spacek win again! I was behind Spacek with In The Bedroom, but Kidman was my second since Watts wasn’t nominated for Mulholland Drive, so frustrated they went with Berry that year! I mean that was a huge example of politics winning someone an Oscar. I’d love to see Spacek do an Darren Aaronofsky film in a role like Burstyn’s or Hershey’s.

    As for McDormand, I’m not too sure, I personally wasn’t too keen on her performance in Fargo although I know I’m in a minority; I thought she’s done far more deserving work since though and deserves to have an Oscar defintley. I hope she wins the Emmy, she does seem like a good Triple Crown winner.

    Bates should have been nominated and won for one of the greatest performances in cinema history for Dolores Caliborne

    I don’t believe Woody Allen is the best fit for her strengths. She needs a director who’ll get right in with her in terms of performance. Also, strong and snappy dialogue is her wheelhouse — Aaron Sorkin take her under your wing.

    Her Evelyn Couch continues to be underrated.

    I understand why Kathy Bates wasn’t listed. I love her, she is so unique, from Misery of course to Primary Colors (“At last the facts”) and Titanic even. But unlike the eight actresses in the poll, was she ever really considered a leading lady? Actually, she and Frances McDormand alike, albeit brilliant character actresses. As I said before the best film actress on this list is Julie Christie. You guys should go watch her movies. She’s like the Gene Hackman of the female actresses, so good and yet so terribly underrated in conversations like these.

    It is sort of ironic that although most of Frances McDormand’s nominations are in supporting, her sole win is in lead (for what some consider to be a supporting performance – though I disagree).

    Judi Dench has four Best Actress nominations but is primarily known for her standout work in supporting roles. Maggie Smith won Best Actress but the bulk of her nominations are in Supporting like McDormand.

    Also, this thread isn’t about leading ladies who don’t have second Oscars but veteran winners who should have one. Kathy Bates is a valid suggestion. And I believe after appearing in at least four Oscar bait projects and two that led to Best Picture nominations she’s honestly overdue for a  very elusive fourth nomination and third in the supporting category. 

    Fried Green Tomatoes, A Home Of Their Own, Dolores Claiborne — all leading performance vehicles for the one-nightstand sensation in Best Actress. 

    I love Julie Christie in Darling and Shampoo. And much appreciate her brand of acting than much more vaulted talent.

    I’m more shocked by the popularity of McDormand’s win. She isn’t a household name and Fargo is an offbeat and violent black comedy. And the women she beat out were doing some career best work. Where are the Breaking The Waves fans? Or people for Secrets & Lies?

    ^^^ I agree completely with what you said about Kathy Bates.  Just was pointing out a common thread among the actresses in the poll.  I do think Maggie Smith and Judi Dench, despite having supporting actress wins, will be remembered as lead actresses.

    This is a great thread, but it is sad when I think of Glen Close and Julianne Moore who are Oscarless.

    Voted for Judi Dench because she’s my favourite actress ever. But if i take away my bias it’d be between Sissy, Julie & Judi. A winner would be chosen by flipping a coin because all are amazing and its too hard to choose.
