Who Should Have Won the Best Actress Oscar for 1946?

Olivia de Havilland finally caught up with her sister Joan Fontaine by winning an Oscar for her soapy To Each His Own:


Celia Johnson was nominated for almost having an affair in the British Brief Encounter:


David O. Selznick unleashed his sexual fantasies in Technicolor with Jennifer Jones going all lust in the dust with Duel in the Sun:

Rosalind Russell went noble as she fought polio and idiot doctors in Sister Kenny:


Jane Wyman went frontier with Gregory Peck, that cute kid, and a deer in The Yearling:

So who was ignored?

How about Donna Reed in an emotionally rich and touching performance in It’s a Wonderful Life?

Or Lana Turner’s sexual buzzsaw in The Postman Always Rings Twice?


Or Joan Crawford lusting after John Garfield in Humoresque:


Finally, they ignored Ingrid Bergman for her turn in Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious:
