Best Supporting Actress 1985

And the nominees were....

  • Margaret Avery as Shug Avery in The Color Purple
  • Anjelica Huston as Maerose Prizzi in Prizzi's Honor (winner)
  • Amy Madigan as Sunny Sobel in Twice in a Lifetime
  • Meg Tilly as Sister Agnes in Agnes of God
  • Oprah Winfrey as Sofia in The Color Purple 

The Field: It's been a while since I've done a year from the 80's, so I was pleased to see this year come up, even if I was kind of hoping to do a year from the 2000's. But I'm a stickler for keeping it random, and this year is one I'm excited for too. The Color Purple is one of those classics that I'm ashamed I haven't seen yet, so that is easily the film I'm most looking forward to. I've seen Prizzi's Honor but don't have particularly fond memories of the film itself, so hopefully this time around the experience will improve. Amy Madigan is the first up, and hopefully sooner rather than later.

Oprah is hands down the best in this field!
Margaret Avery is also great, Huston is ok.
Tilly is wonderful but she suffers being in a bad movie! it's the first time I saw someone so convincing playing a naive girl who knows nothing about life.
Overall, it's a great line-up.

I hope you'll choose oprah!

Glad to see that everyone seems to have a different opinion on this lineup! I can't help but wonder who I'll end up picking. Amy Madigan's review will be up tomorrow.
