1987 - Norma Aleandro, Anne Archer, Olympia Dukakis, Anne Ramsey, Ann Sothern

Ramsey and Sothern are deceased. Aleandro (81), Dukakis (86) and Archer (70) are still active, although Aleandro is pretty much limited to Argentina and neither Dukakis whose husband, actor Louis Zorich, died in January, nor Archer, get the kinds of roles they once did.

I just realized something unique about this particular category in this particular year: They're all first-and-only time nominees. They all got nominated for the first time and as of this writing, they all never got a second nomination. Brennan and La Gallienne have passed. Scarwid is basically retired. Moriarty and Steenburgen are still active but are mostly doing TV and are not getting the high-profile juicy roles in film.

Has it happened before or since?

Yes, in fact just after I left Chicago, in '75.

Some great people have won Pulitzers. But so has Maureen Dowd.

Two architecture critics in the running probably cancelled each other out.

I hope not.

Any time I say something against Ebert someone gets nervous. He's probably very popular in America, and I have never seen him on tv, where it's possible that he does well what he has to do. But I do read his reviews because, I admit, from those I get easily and quickly an idea of what the movie is about. The story line, I mean. But that's all one can get I think.

I'll back up Marco here. I thought it was clear he wasn't touting himself but making a point about Ebert.

I didn't write in English back then. Some might say that I still don't, I know.

Not just me, any 7-year-old probably. Because seriously, I can understand discussing Pauline Kael, James Agee, Andrew Sarris even, but honestly nothing in Roger Ebert's writings I ever found remotely interesting. Unless one wants to know the plot of a movie maybe.

Unfortunately I did read some of Roger Ebert's reviews. When I was 7 I was more profound.

Actually I meant his reviews, but I agree his taking on other issues in his blogging and twittering is quite enjoyable.
