Best Supporting Actress – 1975

Official Nominations: Lee Grant. Ronee Blakely. Lily Tomlin. Sylvia Miles. Brenda Vaccaro

Lee Grant picked up the official win this year for Shampoo, continuing her successful return from blacklisting – a good performance but a win that nevertheless feels like an apologetic gift. Ronee Blakely and Lily Tomlin both shine in Nashville as the up and coming sweetheart and the established Gospel singer respectively. Sylvia Miles gets her second bizarre nomination for a film she barely appears in – Farewell, My Lovely, while Brenda Vaccaro’s nomination is equally strange – an okay performance in an okay film no-one remembers.

My Winner: Ronee Blakely

My Nominations: Ronee Blakely. Lily Tomlin. Karen Black. Veronica Cartwright

Only the two Nashville stars make it over and are joined by… another Nashville star! Karen Black gets her second nomination of the year. Cartwright is certainly game in Inserts but this is a year where there aren’t many memorable performances in this category.

My Winner: Ronee Blakely
