If one wants to stretch it a bit, one could also count 1962, in which the Academy's lineup of Anne Bancroft (The Miracle Worker), Bette Davis (What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?), Katharine Hepburn (Long Day's Journey Into Night), Geraldine Page (Sweet Bird of Youth) and Lee Remick (Days of Wine and Roses) were also all up for the Drama Actress Golden Globe...albeit within an expanded slate of ten nominees. Page won the Globe, Bancroft the Oscar.
And in 1969, Geneviève Bujold won the Globe...while Maggie Smith won the Oscar:
The nominees, after the jump....
Anne of the Thousand Days
first and only nomination; Golden Globe winner for Best Actress in a Drama
They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
first of six nominations; NYFCC Awards winner for Best Actress; BAFTA Awards nominee for Best Actress, Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress in a Drama, NSFC Awards runner-up for Best ActressThe devastation of desperation. Every acrid word out of her lips condemns us, beyond the Depression, beyond the 1930s, beyond the dance floor. Fonda meets the challenge of playing the last vestiges of strength right before they give way to despair. She's heart-breaking.
The Sterile Cuckoo
first of two nominations; Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress in a Drama
The Happy Ending
second of two nominations; Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress in a Drama
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
second of six nominations, first of two wins; BAFTA Award winner for Best Actress; Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress in a Drama, NSFC Awards second runner-up for Best Actress, NYFCC Awards runner-up for Best Actress
Jane Fonda had been the favorite to win, being the biggest name at the time and having the best narrative: daughter of Hollywood royalty upends sex kitten persona by displaying heretofore unseen chops. Indeed, it's surprising, and an upset at the time, that the Oscar instead went to Smith, whose film had come and gone the previous February.
I am also divided between the two, as you can see. But I have only one vote to give, and that vote goes to:
THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE
