I imagine this will go to maybe Caron, but Wood or Roberts could take your win as well. Your original review was not overly enthusiastic about Neal, and I doubt MacLaine will win here since this is very far from her best work.

Wow, very excited to see your thoughts on this one. I'm a huge fan of these performances (for the most part). Can't wait to see where Roberts places with you. Think you'll go for Caron, though (fine by me, she's brilliant!).

Caron will win. Neal should win. LOL

My ranking:
1.Neal one of the best winners ever.Only someone who's not actor can dislike this performance
2.Caron great
3.Roberts great
4.Wood good
5.MacLaine not that good. Need to rewatch her though

I hope your thoughts on Neal will change! She is fantastic! Though really a supporting role....

Well, I can say that this was a year when I had absolutely no idea who would be my pick and everything was possible. So let's see...

Patricia Neal should win, although she was rather supporting.

A fantastic year, I've always been torn between Caron and Neal. They are both brilliant but Roberts is also fantastic. I'm not much of a fan of the others but they are fine, too.

I guess you'll go with Caron.

I like this year - MacLaine is the only rotten apple.

I am completely lost with 1963. I've only seen parts of MacLaine's performance. :) so i can't judge.
