"Actress In A Leading Role" 1929-1935

And now for something a little different.

Since this is the era where the nominees lay that I have yet to see (or are completely forced too in some circumstances) then I thought it would be fun (and alot more easier) to do the years all together.


1929-1935

And the nominees to be reviewed are:

Jeanne Eagels in The Letter
Bessie Love in The Broadway Melody
Mary Pickford in Coquette
Greta Garbo in Anna Christie
Greta Garbo in Romance
Norma Shearer in The Divorcee
Norma Shearer in Their Own Desire
Marlene Dietrich in Morocco
Marie Dressler in Min and Bill
Irene Dunne in Cimarron 
Norma Shearer in A Free Soul
Marie Dressler in Emma
Lynn Fontanne in The Guardsman
Helen Hayes in The Sin Of Madelon Claudet
Katharine Hepburn in Morning Glory
May Robson in Lady For A Day
Diane Wynyard in Cavalcade
Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night
Grace Moore in One Night Of Love
Norma Shearer in The Barretts of Wimpole Street
Claudette Colbert in Private Worlds
Bette Davis in Dangerous
Katharine Hepburn in Alice Adams
Miriam Hopkins in Becky Sharp

So, that makes nine nominees I still have to see - and I won't be reviewing the first year, at least not right now. They will be reviewed completely randomly and I'll update my ranking after each 5 nominees.

So, no more technical talk :)

Oho, something new! :-)

Sounds like a lot of fun and there are so many performances I haven't seen yet from the early years! Very excited for your thoughts!
