Best Actress 1968

The next year I'll be doing a profile/ranking on is 1968 and the nominees were:

Katharine Hepburn in The Lion In Winter

Patricia Neal in The Subject Was Roses

Vanessa Redgrave in Isadora

Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl

Joanne Woodward in Rachel, Rachel



















Note: I couldn't find a good enough picture of Neal in The Subject Was Roses, so I just uploaded one of her instead. And speaking of her, I saw The Subject Was Roses on TCM in March or February, and since it's extremely hard to find, I won't be able to rewatch it. But I'll try my hardest to look for it at every video store I go to and it would be really great if I did find it. But odds are that I will most likely do her profile on memory, although I'll watch some of the trailer so I can remember more of her. But I can remember her really well though, so it probably won't matter.


Anyway, who do you predict? Who is your pick and who are you rooting for?

Oh, certainy a great year! I have seen all but Patricia (you're right, so hard to find!)

Louis Morgan said...

I have only seen Hepburn but she is great so I think she will be your pick.

Sage Slowdive said...

Yeah, I think anyone of them could be your pick...

Fritz: I would order it off Ebay , but I started this year already so I don't have enough time. But you should order it!


Louis: We'll see.

Sage: Yeah, this year seems more open then 93 and 03. Again, we'll see....

It's a battle against Streisand and Hepburn. Woodward could sneak in.

It sure is (was) a great year. `I remember it well-the movies and the Oscar Show. The tie was a real shocker.
I'm betting Streisand will win out.

joe burns said...

Malcolm: Perhaps. We'll see......

Augie: It's so cool you were around then! I wish we had a tie nowadays......

I just have a feeling you'll be going with Kate here!

I was never able to find The Subject Was Roses and that is quite frustrating for me. but the other 4 are FANTASTIC.

I think you will go with Streisand or Kate. And I would be more than fine with either of them. They were both breathtaking and members of my TOP 20. That tie was one of the wisest decisions ever made by the Academy.
