The Next Year

1937


So the nominees were:
  • Irene Dunne in The Awful Truth
  • Greta Garbo in Camille
  • Janet Gaynor in A Star is Born
  • Luise Rainer in The Good Earth
  • Barbara Stanwyck in Stella Dallas
A fantastic looking year. All five of them are interesting in their ways and I can't wait to take a closer look at them. Unfortunately, this will be the last reviewed performance of the brilliant Barbara Stanwyck, so I'll write her review last. I'm curious about how I will react to Rainer, Dunne and especially Garbo for the second time and if I'll like Gaynor more than Garland. We'll see.

Could Barbara gain another win from me or will it be someone else? What's your ranking? What's going to be my ranking? The predicting contest is naturally on.

I doubt you'll like Gaynor more than Garbo, as well as I do not think Stanwyck will win this one.

1. Dunne
2. Garbo
3. Rainer
4. Stanwyck
5. Gaynor

I absolutely adored Stanwyck's performance, and found Rainer's endless intriguing and interesting more than amazing. I'll go out on a limb:

1. Stanwyck
2. Dunne
3. Garbo
4. Rainer
5. Gaynor

What I meant to write actually was I doubt you'll like Gaynor more than Garland.
