Best Supporting Actress – 1971

Official Nominations: Cloris Leachman. Ellen Burstyn. Ann-Margret. Barbara Harris. Margaret Leighton.

Again the category is stacked with The Last Picture Show choices – Cloris Leachman picked up the win with Ellen Burstyn not far behind. Ann-Margret in the controversial Carnal Knowledge seems like a strange choice given how controversial that movie was – she won the Golden Globe though, so clearly there was a lot of love for the performance. Barbara Harris doesn’t need to be here for Plaza Suite and The Go-Between sees a good Margaret Leighton performance but not one we can pick over the others.

My Winner: Cloris Leachman

My Nominations: Cloris Leachman. Ellen Burstyn. Ann-Margret. Julie Dawn Cole. Cybill Shepherd.

I always seem to have difficulty filling this category – mirroring the men’s catgeory I round out the nominatinos for The Last Picture Show and add Cybill Shepherd. Even though she’s annoying, you really can’t forget her – Veruca Salt, thanks to Julie Dawn Cole. 

My Winner: Cloris Leachman

    Great post ☺ I would have picked Cloris Leachman as well. Speaking of Ann-Margret, she was also great in Ken Russell’s Tommy as the title character’s Mother. I love Carnal Knowledge as well though. I would have still awarded it to Cloris Leachman though. Anyway, keep up the great work as always ☺
