Supporting Actress Drama-Emmy breakdown

"I'd love for Gwendoline to win but I think it will be Fiona Shaw because she's an industry vet."-Brittani

"I'm rarely a fan of giving a statue for someone's previous work,but Lena Headey deserves an Emmy for carrying so much of that show on her back - and flawlessly."-Sean Diego

Article Excerpt:

Each month'sSupporting Actress Smackdowninspires us to go back to the year in question for a little context.When the movies of 1968 were playing in theaters,making their case for Oscar glory the following spring,the world was experiencing a time of great unrest.The Vietnam War was raging;The Prague Spring was happening;Martin Luther King Jr was killed;Racial tensions ran high in the Civil Rights fight;student protests in France raged (derailing the usual Cannes process - no Palme D'Or that year);the Zodiac killer began his murder spree;Andy Warhol was almost killed.(All of these events have received cinematic treatments over the years in films likeThe Dreamers,Zodiac,I Shot Andy Warholand countless historical epics and war films.)

1968 introduced Goldie Hawn,The Big Mac,"Hey Jude"and TV's first interracial kiss

But our focus is on the movies,so let's investigate the cinematic crop.

Best Movies According to...
Oscar:Funny Girl,The Lion in Winter,Oliver!,Rachel Rachel,andRomeo & Julietwere the Best Picture nominees but Oscar obviously also really enjoyedStar!(a flop that still managed an incredible 7 nominations),2001: A Space Odyssey(4 nominations) and the foreign film classicThe Battle of Algiers(3 nominations) which finally opened in America.
Golden Globes: Hollywood's Foreign Press Association likedCharly,The Fixer,Heart is a Lonely Hunter,The Lion in Winterand a movie I've never heard of calledShoes of the Fisherman(Drama) and they also sang and laughed withFinian's Rainbow,Funny Girl,The Odd Couple,Oliver!,andYours Mine and Ours(Comedy/Musical)
