1938, 1997, 1998 and 2000 are my picks.

1946 seems like an interesting year.I've only seen Baxter and she gives the type of performance that has sort of become the blueprint for an unstoppable win, but it would be interesting to stack her against the others.

1981 has great contenders, and 2000 was such an odd Oscar year with Hudson breaking out, McDormand having two performances in play, and Harden prevailing.Were some of those performances just buzz, really good films, or just strong performances in a competitive year?

1.1946
2.2000
3.1981

You're really running out of pre-80s options!

I'd be most interested in 1991 (my first Oscars and two of my fave performances), 1997 (we all know who'd win, but how do the other 4 fare?) and 1987 (I've always wanted to read takes on the 3 Annes).
