Supporting Actress: My Ballot & Yours

"Carrie Coon who in her screen debut steals Gone Girl from the much bigger names. Also can we just talk about how between Nora Durst and Margo Dunne that no one has as impressive a breakout in 2014 then Coon. " - Eion Daly

"Agata Kulesza blew my MIND in "Ida," so she easily gets my top ballot." - Lawson

"Keira Knightley. She just seemed like that rare person who can make you want to be better. So endearing, charming and she also has moments where she shows that she knows more about the world. A silent revolutionary." - MCV

YOURS? And what'cha think of mine?

Are you feeling like Geraldine Page tonight? There is a documentary about her. Dunno if it has since any sort of release?

This is not a lead role. Strangely, I rewatched Hondo a few days ago and - just as I'd remembered - that one was not a supporting role. Well, okay, I would have placed Page in lead for Hondo, but I do concede that it is a bit of a borderline case. Interiors on the other hand is not.

god, geraldine page was soo good in that movie.. but i never understuud the love with Maureen Stapleton, she did nothing

@Jorge Nothing? She *35yo spoiler alert* saved Mary Beth Hurt from drowning!

I loved Geraldine Page in Interiors but didn't like the film. It was just trying too hard for Bergman cachet. I likewise loved Maureen Stapleton, I understood that she was a symbol too but by the time she came along in all her boldly colored loudness I didn't care I was glad to have a ray of light injected into that maudlin chamber piece.

My mind still reels that Woody followed up Annie Hall with this film...what a bold move. And what a creative payoff! Rich and rewarding.

Love Page in Interiors. Love this scene!

I don't understand why everyone is so miserable in this movie considering how well decorated are the houses they live in ;)

My favorite Woody Allen.

I LOVE this film.

She should have won the Oscar for this.

... in the Supporting category where she would've been a slam-dunk, honestly, so that Mary Beth Hurt could've been rightfully nominated for Best Actress instead. :)

I was ALL about the sets tho. Dat color scheme.

No, Page deserved to win the Best Actress Oscar.. Hurt is not a lead in this film. The movie doesn't center around her; it centers around Page, the main character. She's the lead In the same way Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter and Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly are leads.

I understand the concerns about category fraud, but it loses its impact when it seems that half the discussions about various roles and performances become debates about category fraud, rather than discussions about the performances themselves.
