Supporting Actress Sunday

Nathaniel speaking.

Do you miss me? I'm sorry to tease. I'm not really back. I'm back on Tuesday. But I was previously scheduled to appear at Stinky Lulu Sez today so this post was pre-created for your pleasure.

The following video is only suitable for viewing by Oscar obsessives. Seriously.

After watching head on over to Stinky's Supporting Actress Smackdown!: a three-pronged discussion of these five Oscar-nominated performances of 1958; the ditzy secretary, the hotelier, the schoolteacher, a lonely heart, and a horny hillbilly. It's all part of the first month of "Supporting Actress Sunday"

That was excellent-I've only seen Cara Williams, but now am headed over to Wendy Hiller and Maureen Stapleton: both look interesting.

I'm struck by how much Martha Hyer was a cross between Grace Kelly and Shirley Jones. These performances all look worthy, actually. How did Wendy Hiller win for such a subtle performance? Oscars seemed to have class in 1958. Loved the Peggy Cass clips. And now watching Hiller, I want to see Brief Encounter immediately.

Nathaniel, because when I'm done I post, I've put up my Michelle tribute. Sorry to be so early. As I say on there, consider it an appetizer to the main event. I'll be looking forward to reading yours and more later in the week. Ciao.

Celia Johnson starred in Brief Encounter. For vintage, pre-Tables Hiller, check out her great, Oscar-nominated Eliza Doolittle in 1938's Pygmalion.

What a great collection of clips. I still have a thing for Auntie Mame and Cass' gonzo performance.

But more importantly -- where on earth did you find a widescreen copy of Some Came Running?! That's a guilty pleasure of mine -- but I've always wanted to see it in widescreen! Spill the beans!

Oops. How did I mix up Celia Johnson and Wendy Hiller? I must watch more British film as a punishment. I do think I saw Hiller do Driving Miss Daisy on stage in London, though.
