The Next Year

1983


So the nominees were:
  • Jane Alexander in Testament
  • Shirley MacLaine in Terms of Endearment
  • Meryl Streep in Silkwood
  • Julie Walters in Educating Rita
  • Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment
A fantastic looking year, a year that I know well as I have previously seen all of the ladies so I'm very excited (just like with 2006) how much my opinion changed.

What do you think? What are your predictions for my ranking? Who's your pick? What's your ranking?

I have no idea who you will pick...I guess any of them could be your winner (maybe except for Julie).

1. Shirley McLaine
2. Meryl Streep
3. Debra Winger
4. Julie Walters
5. Jane Alexander (I haven't seen her)

However, it's a very complicated year

Streep is numero uno still after 28 years for me it's her best ever performance,maclaine would only come 3rd on my top 5,winger would be second then i would drop walters and alexander for streisand in yentl and bonnie bedelia in heart like a wheel.

Meryl or Shirley?I think i would've vote for Shirley by a hair.Debra is in a great third place.Then Alexander and in this year Walters is a filler.

This is quite hard to predict.

1. Maclaine
2. Streep
3. Winger
4. Alexander
5. Walters

I feel Alexander is a bit a wild card.

Unpredictable, but I'm guessing Jane will come in first, followed by Meryl or the Terms girls. I rewatched Terms a few months, and I was surprisingly more impressed by Shirley then Debra, it was the opposite for the longest time.
