Cast Your Vote for AUGUST's "Supporting Actress Sunday" Feature

It's that time again, lovely reader -- that time each month wherein you hold StinkyLulu's home-movie fate in your hands. (Not to mention the screening schedule for your inveterate SmackDowners...) So, whaddaya think?

What year deserves the focus
for August's month of
Supporting Actress Sundays?


Your nominees for August are:
  • 1944: Ethel Barrymore in None But the Lonely Heart, Jennifer Jones in Since You Went Away, Angela Lansbury in Gaslight, Aline MacMahon in Dragon Seed, Agnes Moorehead in Mrs. Parkington
  • 1953: Grace Kelly in Mogambo, Geraldine Page in Hondo, Marjorie Rambeau in Torch Song, Donna Reed in From Here to Eternity, Thelma Ritter in Pickup on South Street
  • 1962: Mary Badham in To Kill a Mockingbird, Patty Duke in The Miracle Worker, Shirley Knight in Sweet Bird of Youth, Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate, Thelma Ritter in Birdman of Alcatraz
  • 1971: Ann-Margret in Carnal Knowledge, Ellen Burstyn in The Last Picture Show, Barbara Harris in Who is Harry Kellerman, and Why is He Saying These Terrible Things About Me?, Cloris Leachman in The Last Picture Show, Margaret Leighton in The Go-Between
  • 1980: Eileen Brennan in Private Benjamin, Eva Le Gallienne in Resurrection, Cathy Moriarty in Raging Bull, Diana Scarwid in Inside Moves, Mary Steenburgen in Melvin & Howard
  • 1989: Brenda Fricker in My Left Foot, Anjelica Huston in Enemies, a Love Story, Lena Olin in Enemies, a Love Story; Julia Roberts in Steel Magnolias • Dianne Wiest in Parenthood
Your decision will be determined no later than the morning of July 30, the day of the 1961 SMACKDOWN. (That allows for about 2 weeks for tricksy voting schemes and assorted electioneering.) And please do vote using the poll mechanism below. Opinions expressed in comments will only be considered in the not uncommon event of a tie. (The votes for both June and July ended up being exhaustingly close; be sure to pitch your woo in comments if things start looking tight.) SO: Vote early. Vote often. Vote now. It's the Oscar-obsessive way. (Tell your friends.)
