Here comes the big one!
Vivien Leigh originally won for Gone with the Wind — and it’s hard to argue with that, although folks might just want to…
…especially given some of the competition, both nominated and un-nominated.
How about Greta Garbo in her greatest comic role in Ninotchka?
Or Irene Dunne in her most romantic mode in Love Story?
Or Bette Davis going glamorous and sentimental in Dark Victory?
Or Greer Garson becoming a star in Goodbye, Mr. Chips?
And what about the performances the Academy ignored?
How about Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz?
Or Jean Arthur, in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington?
