And the Supporting Actresses for JUNE are...

It's official:
Supporting Actress Sundays in June will be devoted to (the envelope please) 1996. (The voting -- which closed at the stroke of midnight -- was quite close. Thanks to one & all who pitched in.) But by a single vote, the nominees for 1996 are:
  • Joan Allen, "The Crucible"
  • Lauren Bacall, "The Mirror Has Two Faces"
  • Juliette Binoche, "The English Patient"
  • Barbara Hershey, "The Portrait of a Lady"
  • Marianne Jean-Baptiste, "Secrets & Lies"
And as for the three CouldaShouldaWoulda Wednesdays in June?
Well, StinkyLulu's agonna try an experiment....

StinkyLulu's Taking Requests!
Below, lovely reader, you'll find a by-no-means-comprehensive list of worthy contenders among 1996's crop of eligible nominees, each of whom got snubbed when it came time for Oscar's nominations. Your task, lovely reader: Peruse the Snubbettes, Class of '96. Contemplate them. Revel in their wonder. And when you're all done with that (& whatever else tickles that fancy of your'n), decide which Snubbette's performance YOU think StinkyLulu should revisit/review -- then shoot Lu an email making your case. (O'course, please feel free to make a case for any performance not on, or overlooked by, the list as well.) Whichever performances get the most compelling support will get a CouldaShouldaWoulda review on one of June's 3 CouldaShouldaWoulda Wednesdays.
