The Info List - Academy Award For Best Actress





The Academy Award for Best Actress
Academy Award for Best Actress
is an award presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
(AMPAS). It is given in honor of an actress who has delivered an outstanding performance in a leading role while working within the film industry. The 1st Academy Awards
1st Academy Awards
ceremony was held in 1929 with Janet Gaynor receiving the award for her roles in 7th Heaven, Street Angel, and Sunrise.[1] Currently, nominees are determined by single transferable vote within the actors branch of AMPAS; winners are selected by a plurality vote from the entire eligible voting members of the Academy.[2] In the first three years of the awards, actresses were nominated as the best in their categories. At that time, all of their work during the qualifying period (as many as three films, in some cases) was listed after the award.[3] However, during the 3rd ceremony held in 1930, only one of those films was cited in each winner's final award, even though each of the acting winners had two films following their names on the ballots.[4] The following year, this unwieldy and confusing system was replaced by the current system in which an actress is nominated for a specific performance in a single film.[3] Starting with the 9th ceremony held in 1937, the category was officially limited to five nominations per year.[3] One actress has been nominated posthumously, Jeanne Eagels.[5] Only three film characters have been nominated more than once in this category: Elizabeth I of England
Elizabeth I of England
(two times by Cate Blanchett), Leslie Crosbie in The Letter, and Esther Blodgett in A Star Is Born. Six women on the list have received an Honorary Academy Award for their acting; they are Greta Garbo, Barbara Stanwyck, Mary Pickford, Deborah Kerr, Gena Rowlands, and Sophia Loren.[6] Since its inception, the award has been given to 75 actresses. Katharine Hepburn
Katharine Hepburn
has won the most awards in this category, with four Oscars. Meryl Streep, who has a total of 21 Oscar nominations (three wins), has been nominated in this category on 17 occasions, resulting in two awards. As of the 2018 ceremony, Frances McDormand
Frances McDormand
is the most recent winner in this category for her role as Mildred Hayes in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Notes[edit]

^ The 2nd Academy Awards is unique in being the only occasion where there were no official nominees. Subsequent research by AMPAS has resulted in a list of unofficial or de facto nominees, based on records of which films were evaluated by the judges.

A1 2 : Rules at the time of the first three ceremonies allowed for a performer to receive a single nomination which could honor their work in more than one film. Greta Garbo
Greta Garbo
and Norma Shearer
Norma Shearer
were both nominated for two different roles in the same category. Current Academy rules forbid this from happening. No official reason was ever given as to why Shearer won the award for only one of the two films she was listed for.[102] B^ : Bette Davis's performance in Of Human Bondage was not nominated for an Oscar.[103] Several influential people at the time campaigned to have her name included on the list, so for that year (and the following year also) the Academy relaxed its rules and allowed a write-in vote.[104] Technically this meant that any performance was eligible to win the award, whether or not they were an official nominee. While the Academy does not officially recognize this as a nomination for Davis,[105][106] they have included her in the list of nominees for the 1935 ceremony on their official website.[17] C1 2 : Both Katharine Hepburn
Katharine Hepburn
and Barbra Streisand
Barbra Streisand
received the exact number of votes resulting in both actresses receiving the award, according to Academy rules.[107]
