Nominees' Attendance at the Oscars
Clearly people cared less. That could be the whole reason. Traveling for foreigners could also be aRobertPius
The worst year is 1981 where 3 of the 4 acting winners didn't attend.

Rank: Best Supporting Actor 1974
teriZooey the Dreamer
I'm surprised by DeNiro's win. Just take a look: 1. He was one of three actors from the film in that category. 2. One of his co-stars and co-nominees was Lee Strasberg, a legend in the acting community. Yes, Strasberg had plenty of detractors but pl

Cloris Leachman/Ellen Burstyn in "The Last Picture Show"
Cloris really is powerful in that final scene where she yells "why am I always apologizing to you!"RobertPius
I heard Burstyn say she had her choice of the three roles so it must have been odd for her when Leachman won the Oscar over her.

Best Picture 1970
The best novie of this year was Women in love.Sam_Malone
The year was incredibly weak and Patton was the logical choice here. Airport and Love Story were never going to win; MASH would have probably won with today's Academy's make-up and Five Easy Pieces was probably second but way too artsy for the academ

Lol I had the same thought, Bergman wasn't only unworthy of an Oscar but she wasn't even the most worthy player in her film. She didn't need a third Oscar for that role, if anyon

Did Geraldine Page Come Close to an Oscar Win (until she won in 1985)
She would have 100% won for Interiors had she campaigned where she belonged, in Best Supporting ActrSam_Malone
As mentioned, pure speculation. I think Geraldine Page was in a Glenn Close type of situation where she was respected by her peers but never really liked too much (if I dare say so). Let's look at her nominations. 1953 Hondo -- this is actually quit

Best Year Ever in the "Supporting Actress" Category
2006, 2007 and 2015 were stacked with five great nominated performances.MoonlightTommy
Molly Shannon is a good example of a flawless performance snubbed due to little or no campaign. 2013 was a great year (Lawrence, Nyong’o, Squibb, Roberts, and Hawkins) those were perfect performances.

I don't think anything came close to beating Patton. It pretty much swept through the ceremony thatFairWeatherAffair
MASH and Five Easy Pieces put the other nominees to shame, easily. Too bad neither had a chance.

Jane Fonda's Win for "Klute", Who Came Second?
Odds are, it was indeed either Jackson (who had two fabulous, Oscar-caliber turns that year) or SuzmMilk Money
Fonda was sublime and almost turned the role down, suggesting her friend Faye instead. Good thing she didn’t. Jessica Walters is a close second for me that year. She should have definitely been pushed for supporting despite her Best Actress (Drama

Should Marsha Mason Have Won an Oscar?
My favorite performance was her in "The Goodbye Girl", and she would have made a great winner, but DAlex Meyer
This is Emmy-related, but since this is about Marsha Mason, I'll say it here: she was robbed of an Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie in Life With Judy Garland: Me And My Shadows as Judy Garland's conniving mother, Et
