The Stepford Wives : Ross and Prentiss should have been Oscar nominated

Ross and Prentiss should have been Oscar nominated

This was a very weak year for female performances. There was even talk of eliminating Best Actress. Did Ross and Prentiss get any press as possible nominees?

Re: Ross and Prentiss should have been Oscar nominated

Back then (the 1970s) the "academy" was run by stuffy old people.
BE grateful that Ruth Gordon won for "Rosemary's Baby". The "academy" ALWAYS prefers serious drama over supernatural, science fiction , horror, fantasy and weird themes.

Hence no win for "2001" . I could not believe that "Silence of the Lambs" won best picture the year it did!

Ross and Prentiss were fantastic in their roles, but Oscar nominated?

Re: Ross and Prentiss should have been Oscar nominated

i thought Prentiss overacted. she was so open minded and un-stepford she almost seems like a plant to make ross feel comfortable.
