The Next Year

1972


So the nominees were:
  • Liza Minnelli in Cabaret
  • Diana Ross in Lady Sings the Blues
  • Maggie Smith in Travels with my Aunt
  • Cicely Tyson in Sounder
  • Liv Ullmann in The Emigrants
Wow, a fantastic looking year once again, I'm so excited.

What do you think? How do you pick? What are your predictions for my ranking (the contest is on)?

I doubt anyone can beat Liza.

Minnelli seems like a safe bet, but I imagine only Ullmann could possibly upset.

Well, I've only seen Liza in advance so who knows? Her profile will be the first, I think.

Such an interesting year! Ullmann is one of the greatest ever, Tyson is a legend, but Minnelli - sad and funny in the same breath – is too iconic to pass up.

This year does look rather interesting. I just watched Shame, so I'm on something of a Liv Ullmann high so:
