I was just looking over the log of 1990 films I have seen for Tyler's poll about ranking Meryl Streep, and I was struck yet again by the idea that 1990 was a very good year for supporting actresses. Many fine performances were given. Here are some of my favorites alphabetically (some giving good work in more than one film) I also made an attempt to include people who even in a minute or two of film made an impression.:
Annette Bening/Postcards from the Edge & The Grifters Helena Bonham Carter/Hamlet Lorainne Bracco/GoodFellas Glenn Close/Reversal of Fortune & Hamlet Joan Cusack/Men Don't Leave Blythe Danner/Mr. and Mrs. Bridge Carolyn Farina/Metropolitan Bridget Fonda/The Godfather Part III Whoopi Goldberg/The Long Walk Home & Ghost Marcia Gay Harden/Miller's Crossing Jane Horrocks/Life is Sweet Julie Kavner/Awakenings Diane Keaton/The Godfather Part III Shirley MacLaine/Postcards from the Edge Mary McDonnell/Dances with Wolves Laurie Metcalf/Internal Affairs Catherine O'Hara/Home Alone Martha Plimpton/Stanley and Iris Joan Plowright/Avalon & i Love You to Death (as I'm watching it now) Pamela Reed/Kindergarten Cop Talia Shire/The Godfather part III Claire Skinner/Life is Sweet Mary Steenburgen/Back to the Future Part III Mai Zetterling/The Witches
And I still have Diane Ladd in Wild at Heart to look forward to in the future!
