"Actress In A Leading Role" 1945

The next year to be unearthed will be:

The Academy selected:
  • Ingrid Bergman in The Bells Of St. Marys
  • Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce
  • Greer Garson in The Valley Of Decision
  • Jennifer Jones in Love Letters
  • Gene Tierney in Leave Her To Heaven
So, will I agree with the Academy, or will I name another nominee the best of 1945?

Wow, great choice for the next year! It will be interesting to see who is your choice!

Sage Slowdive said...

Thanks Fritz!

Joan Crawford for the win! And I think she'll be your pick too.

Sage Slowdive said...

We'll see :)

Louis Morgan said...

An interesting year, I am looking forward to these profiles.

joe burns said...

This will be interesting since you've never talked about any of these performances, except for Crawford, and none of them were on your best Best Actress nominees post. But I know you said that list wasn't complete so who knows?

Twister said...


I think I just might know who your pick is...but I'll wait and let everone be surprised!

Sage Slowdive said...

Yes :)

I think this will be the most interesting year I've done yet, since it's barely talked about.

joe burns said...

Off-topic, but if you had done 1950 when you were doing shorter rankings, what would Judy Holliday have gotten? Not zero stars, I don't think.

I haven't seen any of these nominees, yet it's a really interesting year for me. I guess your pick will be Crawford.

Sage Slowdive said...

No, my ratings are the same.

As I said before, I was going on memory of the nominees when I was rating them last time. These now are definite ratings.
