"The Oscar will open to you like a magnificent vagina."

Sadly Rosemary Harris could only muster a feeble 6% for her performance in 'Tom & Viv'.

Likewise, future Oscar winner Helen Mirren was only able to get 11% for 'The Madness of King George'

In a tie for second place are two actresses who I always hope will have more great roles then they currently do. Uma Thurman for 'Pulp Fiction' and the delightful Jennifer Tilly in 'Bullets over Broadway' with 22%. Still not enough to oust the winner and Tilly's co-star.

So it is no Surprise that Dianne Wiest won this poll with 39% of the vote, I mean of course, Helen Sinclair won the poll, and she is the Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress in 1994, and everyone loves her in this.

Let is celebrate two time Oscar winner Wiest, and wish her a plethora of juicy supporting role yet to come. Still this role is by far her most quotable.
"She's perky all right. She makes you want to sneak up behind her with a pillow and suffocate her."

"Please forgive me. My pedicurist had a stroke. She fell forward onto the orange stick and plunged it into my toe. It required bandaging."

"I'm still a star. I never play frumps or virgins."

Now lets look to 1995. The Nominees were:

Susan Sarandon - 'Dead Man Walking'
Elisabeth Shue - 'Leaving Las Vegas'
Sharon Stone - 'Casino'
Meryl Streep - 'The Bridges of Madison County'
Emma Thompson - 'Sense and Sensibility'
