Best Actress Rewind: 1944

Best Actress Rewind is back! Oscar-watcher Matt Mazur challenges the Academy's choices in his favorite category, comparing the Academy nominees with his own (frequently better) nominees!

Oscar Nominees:

Ingrid Bergman ... Gaslight

Claudette Colbert ... Since You Went Away

Bette Davis ... Mr. Skeffington

Greer Garson ... Mrs. Parkington

Barbara Stanwyck ... Double Indemnity

Mazur Nominees:

Tallulah Bankhead … Lifeboat

 
Ingrid Bergman … Gaslight

 

Judy Garland … Meet Me in St. Louis

 

Betty Hutton … The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek

 

Barbara Stanwyck … Double Indemnity

 

Oscar Winner: Ingrid Bergman, Gaslight

Mazur Winner: Barbara Stanwyck, without hesitation, in a shocking change-of-pace role that defines the Noir femme fatale. Phyliis Dietrichson is synonymous with rotten feminine guile and Stanwyck plays her with repitilian relish, all cool, calculating and out for herself -- as most femmes fatale tend to be. A towering achievement in the versatile actresses' career.
