All the Supporting Actress nominees are flawed. Great in parts, but none consistently superior. My least favorite would be Madeline Kahn in Blazing Saddles. Nothing more than a silly accent. I think I'm going with Diane Ladd in Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore.
The Lead nominees are all extraordinary, but unless there's a cabal against her, Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under the Influence is going to run screaming from the room with a trophy in her hand, and she will deserve it.
