My top 10 Best Supporting Actress winners (as of now)
Note:I'm in the process of seeing most of the Best Actress winners so I can do a ranking like Sage (Again,thank you SO much for sending me the links for most of the Best Actress winners that I haven't seen yet!)did and what Fritz is doing right now,but I'l probably not do a Best Supporting Actress ranking anytime soon,so just enjoy this for now. Also,this list is different from the list that I originally had in mind and posted a while ago,both in new performances being added and others being taken out and the descending order.10.Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny: A terrific comic performance which is incredibly enjoyable. 9: Beatrice Straight in Network:In only 6 minutes of screen time,Straight is absolutely unforgettable. 8. Cloris Leachman in The Last Picture Show:Heartbreaking,powerful,and subtle portrayal. 7. Sandy Dennis in Who's Afraid Of Virginia Wolf?:The transformation that Dennis goes through in this film is mesmerizing to watch. 6. Rachel Weisz in The Constant Gardener:Brilliant performance. Enough said! 5. Eileen Heckart in Butterflies Are Free:Heckart is just wonderful in this and becomes the center of the film. 4. Diane Wiest in Hannah And Her Sisters:I just LOVE,LOVE,LOVE,this performance and movie. 3. Catherine Zeta-Jones in Chicago:The most hated performance that is in my top ten. But I was blown away by her. 2. Angelina Jolie in Girl Interupted: An incredible performance which dominates the entire film. And #1. Shirley Jones in Elmer Gantry:When I first watched the video "My favorite Supporting Actress winners" that Sage posted on Youtube,Jones's clip struck a chord in me. After seeing Elmer Gantry last night,I was amazed by Jones. She delivers a stunning performance which I loved from her first scene to her last. So tell me,who are your favorites? Which of my choices do you like or dislike?
