I changed my best actress line up too.

Burstyn, Christie, Jackson, O'Neal and the winner Ullmann....but for Scenes From a Marriage.

I've probably agonized over this year more than any other one.

In the end I come back to the Academy's choices of Burstyn, Jackson, Mason, Streisand and Woodward, with Woodward my easy winner.

Having recently re-watched Paper Moon, I get the argument against O'Neal's supporting actress status. She's in almost every scene, but she mostly reacts to the other actors in those scenes. She certainly holds her own against her father, Madeline Kahn, P.J. Johnson and the others, but she doesn't command the screen the way such predecessors as Shirley Temple, Peggy Ann Garner, Margaret O'Brien and Hayley Mills, to name a few, did. She soon would with The Bad News Bears, but by then she was three years older.

Jackson remains one of my favorites of the extraordinary actresses who came to prominence in the 60s and 70s, one whose career should have lasted longer than it did. It had virtually ended a decade or more before she went into politics. I still think she was good in A Touch of Class despite the material, but this is a film that stunk when it came out, one in which the stench has only gotten worse over the years. Still, the surprise that she could do comedy, aside from her cameo in The Boy Friend, was something akin to Garbo laughing in Ninotchka. For that, she gets a nod from me even if, as a popular song of the day went, "a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse." Her best performances, though, were in Women in Love for which she deserved her first Oscar; Sunday Bloody Sunday, which might have made it two in a row if it weren't for Jane Fonda's extraordinary work in Klute; Mary, Queen of Scots, in which she reprised her TV role of Elizabeth R in support of Vanessa Redgrave; The Romantic Englishwoman in which she is much better than in Hedda for which was nominated that year and Stevie which was overlooked by Oscar in 1978, but recognized by the New York Film Critics Circle three years later when it had its delayed opening on the other coast.

All four actresses were magnificent. I thought over it and came to the conclusion that Liv Ullmann's character took center stage through most of the film so she was the lead (and won awards accordingly in this category as well). The other three actresses (a couple of them also won in the lead category elsewhere) probably had less screen time although amongst them Kari Sylvan is clearly in support to the ''sisters''.

Ingrid Thulin, ofcourse, has the Oscar friendly scene but more than that her glacial facial expressions throughout speak such volumes. In any category she should be and should have been recognised for her magnificent performance.

I met her in the late 80s-early 90s, when she was living in Rome (I was doing my university there at the time), and I saw her teaching acting - a great experience. She was a lonely, unhappy woman, but a wonderful actress of course, and even late in her life, when movies seemed to have forgotten her, still so committed to the art of acting.

Ingrid Thulin has long been my 'favorite' of Bergman's leading ladies.

She was also very good in Bergman's The Silence (1963) and in Visconti's The Damned (1969).

I liked Scarecrow quite a bit when I first saw it. I haven't seen it in years, but I was always surprised to see how underrated it was.
