I watched Since You Went Away recently, and I really have to wonder how it managed all those Oscar nominations. Agnes Moorehead stole the film, though Colbert was pretty good.

Stanwyck will probably take this.

Let's hope Stanwyck takes it...

My pick is obviously Barbara but I'm hoping for a win by Ingrid because I want to see somebody write nicely about Ingrid. :)

Bergman or Stanwyck I imagine.

I really hope Ingrid Bergman wins this, I liked Barbara Stanwyck but I really didn't think she was brilliant. What I really hope for is that you enjoy Bette Davis' underrated performance in Mr. Skeffington, Garson will probably be last.

My prediction:

1. Ingrid Bergman.
2. Barbara Stanwyck.
3. Bette Davis.
4. Claudette Colbert.
5. Greer Garson.

They are all good, I think. Garsonis delicious in her part. I really love the "tour de force" of Bergman, Stanwyck is terrific, Davis very funny(in the good way)and Colbert gives a lovely performance, as usual.
