The Next Year

Moving along with our next year, which is 1940 one of the most talked about races ever. The nominees cover a wide range, but now I stop talking. This time I will send links to the movies, which I hope will be useful to you (I cannot give you one to The Philadelphia Story but it's available on DVD I'm sure). Again, let's enjoy the movies and naturally, the performances of these iconic stars.

So the nominees were:
  • Bette Davis in The Letter
  • Joan Fontaine in Rebecca
  • Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story
  • Ginger Rogers in Kitty Foyle: The Natural History of a Woman
  • Martha Scott in Our Town
So what are your predictions? It's time to share your fearless, gutsy predictions with me and the world.

I'll predict your rankings as:
1. Joan Fontaine
2. Katharine Hepburn
3. Bette Davis
4. Ginger Rogers
5. Martha Scott

Is this really one of the most talked about? Huh...

But my vote goes to Fontaine.

Well Twister, yes in a way. Davis, Hepburn and especially Fontaine has a massive fanbase and the win of Rogers is usually debated.

I think that this year is probably the most talked year from the 40's, along with 47 since none of the 40's years are talked about that much.

Anyway, I really want to do this year, but I already have the next three years planned. I've only seen Fontaine, but I need to rewatch her whole performance (I've seen it once and I rewatched about an hour of it, but never finished it) I think you'll go with Hepburn, but Davis and Fontaine have a good shot though!
