I'm in a very "picky" mood, so I'm going to do another IIPTW entry.
The next category in Best Actress and the decade is the 1960s. This was a very good period for the winners and I'm deeply satisfied with the most of them.
So my picks are:
1960: Shirley MacLaine in The Apartment
1961: Sophia Loren in Two Women
1962: Anne Bancroft in The Mircale Worker
1963: Patricia Neal in Hud
1964: Anne Bancroft in The Pumpkin Eater
1965: Julie Christie in Darling
1966: Elizabeth Taylor in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
1967: Dame Edith Evans in The Whisperers (this is a very less-known movie, it's posted on Youtube watch it, Dame Edith is worth it)
1968: Katharine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter
1969: Maggie Smith in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
The category is Best Director and I stay with the 1960s. I'm super-pissed that most of these directors failed to win the award, because they created iconic and artistic movies (I mean Fellini losing to West Side Story, come on).
1960: Alfred Hitchcock for Psycho
1961: Federico Fellini for La dolce vita
1962: David Lean for Lawrence of Arabia
1963: Federico Fellini for 8 & 1/2
1964: Michael Cacoyannis for Zorba The Greek
1965: John Schlesinger for Darling
1966: Michelangelo Antonioni for Blowup
1967: Mike Nichols for The Graduate
1968: Anthony Harvey for The Lion in Winter (no, not Stanley Kubrick)
1969: John Schlesinger for Midnight Cowboy
P.S.: I did not seem to find a good picture for Best Director. Shame on me.
