Article Excerpt:

1994 was our year of the month for June so before the month closes,a couple of more forays into that year.Here's Nathaniel R responding to a reader requestduring the Supporting Actress Smackdownto discuss the actual leading nominees.

It's an age old question and the answer is (nearly) always the same.

Q: What happens when all the best stuff in a film year is within genres Oscar doesn't care for?
A: The Academy sticks to their traditional loves even if it means providing history with a weak shortlist that they'll judge harshly!

Some recent years have suggested that Oscar is loosening up in this regard.The swell of new members might be helping along with the increased visibility of critical passion (the plethora of precursor awards constantly saying "but this is great!won't you please look at it?"seems to have shifted Oscar votersa bitmore towards critical passion and away from "Oscar Bait").But overall they stick to what they love (dramas,message movies,epics,biopics,etcetera).This is especially true of the Acting branch which rarely met a teary face it didn't fall for and continually sticks up its nose at laughing or screaming orunusualfaces given their aversion to comic genius,horror films,and auteur experimental or sci-fi/fantasy work.Which brings us to 1994's BEST ACTRESS LIST...
