Last week we had some fun listing the performances we felt were the greatest ever to win the Supporting Actor Oscar (chime in here), and so, out of fear that Kristen might forever label me a sexist bastard otherwise, we are doing the same for the ladies this week.
All kidding aside, there have been a lot of great performances to go on to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. So let’s hear what your three (or if you’d like to defeat the whole point of this weekly post, your 10 or 20) favorite and/or best Supporting Actress winning performances are. Feel free to do a separate list if you like, perhaps include the three Supporting Actress performances that should have won but did not. Have at it.
My Circuit 3 for the Greatest Performances to Win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar:
- Sandy Dennis – Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)
- Dianne Wiest – Bullets Over Broadway (1994)
- Kim Hunter – A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
