    Fonda, Leachman and Johnson are among the best winners in their categories, hard to choose but in the end I went with Leachman.

    This is another strong quartet, but I very recently saw Fonda and was blown away by her work there, so I threw her a vote.

    All three movies here are great, too.

    Great group. Some of Fonda's best work. The rest are really good. Its between the two ladies for me, but I don't really want to vote for LeachMEAN, so I'll go with Jane!

    I never got the hype for Cloris in The Last Picture Show. The whole film was rather pointless and underwhelming in my book.

    Fonda, but holy moly, all four of these are superb. I adore Hackman, but if Topol had won like he should have, this would be arguably the best quartet of winners… ever?

    Leachman. I adore Fonda, but there something too "methodish" in her Klute performance for my taste.

    I like them all. Clovis was most unexpected for me so went with her.

    Johnson but I voted for Leachman in a futile attempt to stop Fonda from winning
