The Next Year

I really did not expect to do this year, but finally I found The Sterile Cuckoo, so I thought that this should be the next one that's it. It's not very often talked about, but I only heard good things, so I just cannot wait. Plus this is going to be the first profile for marvellous Maggie. Gosh, it's great.

1969

So the nominees were:
  • Geneviève Bujold in Anne of the Thousand Days
  • Jane Fonda in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
  • Liza Minnelli in The Sterile Cuckoo
  • Jean Simmons in The Happy Ending
  • Maggie Smith in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
So what do you think about this year? Who's your pick, what's your ranking? The predicting contest is on. Oh, I really can't wait, I might start reviewing tomorrow. I'm sick again, so I have time.

NOTE: This is going to be the last year I am going to do in 2010. Probably.

LOVE this year. Jane gives what I think is one of the greatest performances of all time but Minnelli is literally astonishing, too.

This one seems very hard to predict the ranking but the winner may be predetermined.

1.Smith
2.Fonda
3.Minnelli
4.Simmons
5.Bujold

A year I've done! Ha Ha...



Anyway, Smith will be the winner this year, but I think your ranking will be a little unpredictable. I agree with Louis though on what your ranking will be..

wow, you're in a hurry :)

if i live that long, it will probably take me like 20 years to go through everything BA :)


I don't like 1969... and I don't enjoy Maggie's win. :) so from the 3 I've seen, it would be Fonda easily.

Don't you like Maggie's win? WOW! I ADORE Maggie in general so I am happy with this win. But I say nothing about who my favorite.

I'll see Smith tonight, my pick so far is Jane Fonda in one of her best performances ever!

from what I remember, Maggie gets better towards the end of the film, but other than that it's too much of a cold performance, too stiff and I didn't enjoy the character...
