So, here's my new series. Best Lead and Supporting Actress each year for every decade. I'll do one decade per day. Should've done it a long time ago, but I've been lazy.
'40: Joan Fontaine - Rebecca '41: Judy Garland - Babes on Broadway '42: Ingrid Bergman - Casablanca '43: Teresa Wright - Shadow of a Doubt '44: Ingrid Bergman - Gaslight '45: Ingrid Bergman - The Bells of St. Mary's '46: Ingrid Bergman - Notorious '47: Rosalind Russell - Mourning Becomes Electra '48: Barbara Stanwyck - Sorry, Wrong Number '49: Olivia de Havilland - The Heiress
(1939 would've been Judy Garland for The Wizard of Oz, but I don't know the rest of the 30s well enough to do a full list on that decade.)
'40: Judith Anderson - Rebecca '41: Agnes Moorhead - Citizen Kane (just no other picks here) '42: Agnes Moorhead - The Magnificent Ambersons '43: Margaret O'Brien - Jane Eyre '44: Margaret O'Brien - Meet Me in St. Louis '45: Ann Blyth - Mildred Pierce '46: Anne Baxter - The Razor's Edge '47: Kathleen Byron - Black Narcissus '48: Claire Trevor - Key Largo '49: Deborah Kerr - Edward, My Son
Just lead cos I haven't seen enough to do supporting...
