Oscar Nominnes (My Ranking)
1. Norma Shearer - Marie Antoinette
2. Bette Davis - Jezebel
3. Wendy Hiller - Pygmalion
4. Margaret Sullavan - Three Comrades
5. Fay Bainter - White Banners
A good year of actresses with Norma Shearer being my favourite, REALLY close runner-up is Bette Daivs, both of them gives two of their finest performances ever. Wendy Hiller is also good. If I got to choose I would replace Sullavan and Bainter with Hepburn for either "Bringing Up baby" or "Holiday".
Then the other candidate could be Joan Crawford in "The Shining Hour", Jean Arthur "You Can't Take It With You", Olivia de Havilland "The Adventures of Robin Hood".
Who's your favourite?
