The results are here from my fifth poll.
I asked who you felt deserved the Best Actress Oscar back in 1987.
The results were hardly surprising. I knew we all were happy Cher won an Oscar, but we all know it is for the wrong performance (“Mask” was her shining moment).
Come on…we know who the winner is…so without further adieu, in decending order:
5) With 5% of the votes we have Sally Kirkland - Anna
4) With 12% of the votes we have Meryl Streep - Ironweed
3) With 12% of the votes we have Cher - Moonstruck
2) With 16% of the votes we have Holly Hunter – Broadcast News
1) With a whopping 54% we have Glenn Close – Fatal Attraction.
No surprised there at all. We all knew Glenn was the deserving winner. And no one puts it better when discussing the statuesque and talented Close than Nathaniel of The Film Experience..
For my next poll we will be looking back to the same year, but in the Best Supporting Actress category, also know as the year of the Ann.
The women you have to choose from are:
Norma Aleandro – Gaby – A True Story
Anne Archer – Fatal Attraction
Olympia Dukakis – Moonstruck
Anne Ramsey – Throw Momma from the Train
Ann Sothern – The Whales of August
Poll is in the side bar to the right, near the top.
