Supporting Actress Sundays: 1942
In general, the 1942 crop impresses me much more than the ladies of 1958 did, and in Agnes Moorehead's Fanny Minafer from The Magnificent Ambersons, the category boasts at least one all-time great performance, though Stinky himself registers a provocative and well-argued dissent on that score. Later today, click back over to see how Nathaniel, mainlymovies, myself, and our gracious host rate the honored turns by Moorehead, Gladys Cooper in Now, Voyager, Susan Peters in Random Harvest, Dame May Whitty in Best Picture winner Mrs. Miniver, and the winner in this category, Teresa Wright, also in Mrs. Miniver.
Edited to Add: Nathaniel has duplicated the yummiest, plummiest side-dish of Supporting Actress Sundays by editing a clipreel from the five nominated performances. Savor it! (The end is a hoot.)
