Best Actress 1974

The next year I'll be doing a profiles/ranking on is 1974 and the nominees were:

Ellen Burstyn in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Diahann Caroll in Claudine

Faye Dunaway in Chinatown

Valerie Perrine in Lenny

Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under The Influence

So who will be my pick? Who are you rooting for?


Louis Morgan said...

I've only seen Dunaway and Perrine, out of those two I suppose I'd pick Dunaway. I think most of them have a good chance at being your pick.

Fritz said...

I can only recall Burstyn's performance at the moment but I wasn't a fan of her.

Twister said...

This is supposedly a VERY strong year from what I've heard, but I haven't seen any of them.

Which ones have you seen yet, Joe?

Sage Slowdive said...

Probably the strongest year ever.

Each one of them did wonders with their roles.

joe burns said...

Louis Morgan: Yes,I think that's true.

Twister: I've seen Dunaway and Burtsyn. It does seem like a strong year.

Fritz: I know your thoughts on her, but what did you think of some of her other performances? Have you seen her in Requiem For A Dream?

Sage: I can't wait to see all of the performances! And it'll be interesting if Burstyn will still be your pick, when you do this year, since you think all of them were amazing.

Sage Slowdive said...

Well, they're all fantastic, but there's two that really are just outstanding.

Malcolm said...

I've only seen Ellen and she's fantastic!

But I'm guessing it's gonna be Rowlands. Everybody loves her.

joe burns said...

I think Ellen, Faye, and Geena all have their fair share of supporters. I'm not sure who'll be my pick.

Sage Slowdive said...

I think Faye might be your pick :)

joe burns said...

That's certainly possible. I did like her a performance a lot.
