1948: Olivia de Havilland in The Snake Pit

joe burns said...

Sage: Thanks!

Impiltdownman: Haven't seen it yet.

Sage Slowdive said...

You didn't like Julie Christie in 07, right?

joe burns said...

No, I liked her. Probably gets a three star rating for me. I just said that comment on your 2008 Best Actress ranking about her because I think she is borderline supporting, but probably a co-lead.

Sage Slowdive said...

How many supporting winners do you need to see?

joe burns said...

Oh, a lot.

Twister said...

Have you seen Stockard Channing in Six Degrees of Separation?

She's incredible.
