Glenda Close, Best Actress for Reversal of Fortune
Isn’t she narrating off-screen most of the time? I think that would have been an egregious fraud had she went lead.November 14, 2020 at 2:30 am #1203836108

Is this one completely dead?November 13, 2020 at 1:01 pm #1203834716
Good thing you didn’t add the Batman stuff because I still can’t get around how bad he was in them.November 13, 2020 at 12:58 pm #1203834711
Not my fav win by any means but it follows one of the all-time worst in the category so it looks better than it is.
Brooklyn is the only Ronan performance I like but I still wouldn’t call her win-worthy.November 13, 2020 at 12:54 pm #1203834700
Not a co-lead although if I recall well she does have her own separate scenes.November 13, 2020 at 12:52 pm #1203834697
Jennifer Connelly in House of Sand and Fog was better than anyone in the actual lineup. She must have did something bad that the academy dropped her so quickly after her win…November 13, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203834683
The Hours but then again everything is great except Still Alice.November 13, 2020 at 12:43 pm #1203834679
Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot, that’s a very comedic performance that most of the time revolves around exaggerating female stereotypes at the time. I really enjoyed his performance, although it’s very hammy.
Always preferred Curtis’ performance, the Cary Grant impersonation is gold.
What about Dianne Wiest in Bullets Over Broadway?November 13, 2020 at 11:56 am #1203834584
At the time I remember that I really wanted Marsha Mason to win for “Only When I Laugh”……now I’m not so sure after having recently seen that film as well as “Reds”, “Atlantic City” and “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” since the pandemic started. “On Golden Pond” is a great film that I’ve seen a few times. My rankings now would be: 1. Katharine Hepburn 2. Marsha Mason 3. Diane Keaton 4. Meryl Street 5. Susan Sarandon
Forgot to reply to this…
I think Marsha Mason should have won and the fact that they decided to give Hepburn her 4th instead of finally awarding the 4th nomination of Mason speaks volumes. They must have never liked her that much even though the movie is one of those “industry” ones, as in about actors that Weinstein often cited as Oscar bait. I guess the “still feels like a play” budget didn’t help?November 13, 2020 at 11:51 am #1203834565
My Left Foot, just barely as it’s incredibly difficult to pick one!
