Best Actress 1992

1992 it is. Not my first choice from the 90s, but definitely not the least wanted. All 5 are serious, mostly lesser-known performances. I had seen 3 of the films (Howards End multiple times) and I'm not sure about the other 2: they were on tv, but I've never watched them from beginning to end. I know I have a favorite, but we'll see how it goes. You never know, and that's what makes it fun. So the 5 ladies that Oscar had chosen for 1992 were:

from left to right, I have the pleasure to introduce:

  • Mary McDonnell, in Passion Fish
  • Susan Sarandon, in Lorenzo's Oil
  • Michelle Pfeiffer, in Love Field
  • Emma Thompson, in Howards End
  • Catherine Deneuve, in Indochina

I'll start with Emma. :)

1991 was the most boring year of the nineties in movies generally. The only film that I really enjoyed was Howards End, and for that reason Emma Thompson wins this hands down for me. I'm oddly nervous, wondering what your take on her performance will be...
