The Great Lie (1941)
Here's the first half of the mad scribblings typings then.
What is your favorite non-nominated performance from each of the five titans of the acting nominations? (Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn, Jack Nicholson, Bette Davis and Laurence Olivier) - Sean
Nathaniel: Oh this is a tough one since those people were Oscared for breathing. Okay. Let's take them in reverse order of preference as actors...
Sir Laurence Olivier. Weirdly I was just watching As You Like It (1936) just the other day. I wasn't all that impressed though he definitely had an easier time with the material and the medium than the other stagebound performers. I have seen several of his non-nominated films,
It was painful because that scene reminded Rather of the aftermath. “The great lie being spread by people who didn’t like the story was Number One, ‘well you know they retracted it,’ ” Rather told Variety. “The story was never retracted. What Redford read, which I had read on the air, was that a principal source had changed his story — so what we did was apologize for that, but not for the truth of the story.”

It's time to introduce our panel as we dive into that film year next week with little goodies strewn about the usual postings.
Remember You are part of the panel. So get your votes in by e-mailing Nathaniel with 1941 in the subject line and giving these supporting actresses their heart rankings (1 for awful to 5 for brilliant).

These annums were chosen after comment reading, dvd searching, handwringing, and also to rope in prospective panelists (to be announced later
