New York Film Critics Choice for BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: only a 75% Chance of an Oscar Nomination

Barton Fink, Judy Davis

With Kathryn Hunter’s win for playing all three witches in “The Tragedy of Macbeth” I did a some searching into how much my esteemed collages in NY agree with the Academy. What are the chances of their choice for Best Supporting Actress picking up an Oscar nomination? Well, in the fifty-two previous years since Dylan Canon first won in NY in 1969, 13 of their choices have failed to get a nomination beginning with Sissy Spacek’s snub for “Three Women” in 1977.

Result: only a 75% concordance or a one in four chance of NYFCC choice being snubbed by Oscar.

Here is the list of the NYFCC choices for Best Supporting Actress who did NOT receive on Oscar nomination:

Sissy Spacek (Three Women 1977)

Mona Washbourne (Stevie1981)*

Vanessa Redgrave ( Prick Up Your Ears 1987)

Diane Venora (Bird 1988)

Jennifer Jason Leigh (Last Exit to Brooklyn and Miami Blues 1990)

Judy Davis ( Barton Fink and Naked Lunch 1991)

Gong Li ( Farewell My Concubine 1993)

Courtney Love (The People vs Larry Flint 1996)

Lisa Kudrow (The Opposite of Sex 1998)

Patricia Clarkson ( Far from Heaven 2002)

Maria Bello (A History of Violence 2005)

Kristen Stewart (Clouds of Sils Maria 2015)

ALWAYS GOOD FOR A LAUGH, THE SAG AWARDS ARE EXCEPTIONALLY DREADFUL THIS YEAR.

Voted on by hundreds of actors, most of whom are too busy waiting tables to see movies at all, and, if they do, their choice is EXTREMELY limited. Limited mainly to Friday night at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. Anything even remotely off the beaten track will not be seen or even heard of. Hence the hideousness of what is listed below. End of discussion. Movies only.
