Oscars: Pete Hammond Handicaps An Unusually Strong Best Actress Race – AwardsLine

14 hours ago

Early in the season, it became apparent that this would be a much stronger year for the usually light Best Actress race. In fact, the women definitely appeared to be matching the men for a competitive and dense lineup of great roles this time around. Add to that the unusually large number of terrific parts for veterans such as Maggie Smith, Blythe Danner and Lily Tomlin, and it seemed, for a brief moment, highly likely that the older contenders were going to dominate.
