Best Actress 1976

The next year I'll be doing a profile/ranking on is 1976 and the nominees were:

Marie Christine Barrualt in Cousin, Cousine

Faye Dunaway in Network

Talia Shire in Rocky

Sissy Spacek in Carrie

Liv Ullman in Face To Face

So, who do think will by pick? Who are you rooting for?


Twister said...

I'm rooting for Spacek, but I think you know who I will not be rooting for Dunaway (wa wa waaaa...).

I have only seen those two performances so Spacek may not be my solid pick, but I think you might pick Faye... *sigh* - Just kiddin'...kinda.

Louis Morgan said...

I aspect Dunaway, and Spacek, are in contention, although I believe you might go with Ullman. I have seen Dunaway and Shire, and I would pick Dunaway between those two.

Twister said...

Louis, what did you think of "Network"?

Louis Morgan said...

I think it has some good things in it, like Peter Finch's part, but it is overrated a bit. I think it goes too over the top with some aspects, especially with the communists.

Twister: Ha ha, well anything could happen.

Louis: I'd say that Spacek, Ullman, and Dunaway all have a good chance. And I really liked Network. It's been two years since I've seen it though.

I'm rooting for Faye, but Liv and Sissy are also fantastic!
I didn't watch Cousin, Cousine, but it seems the kind of film that divides Oscar fans.
Talia is bleh... like everything in her movie.

This is a really exciting year for me! We'll see how Liv goes tomorrow! I'm looking forward to seeing Rocky too-just to see if it's bad as everyone thinks......

Malcolm said...

I think it's just going to be between Faye, Sissy, and Liv. Maybe Marie could sneak in. But I'm sure it will not go with Talia.

Anyway, I'm already thrilled to hear your thoughts about Talia!

I'm really looking forward to this year! My guess for your ranking:

1. Liv Ullman
2. Faye Dunaway
3. Sissy Spacek
4. Marie Christine Barrualt
5. Talia Shire

We'll see........ I'm glad you're excited! Is it possible for you to do this year?

Well, you know my feelings!

I hope Faye wins.
