On this edition of the Supporting Actress Smackdown we're talking the 1986 Oscars and specifically the actresses Tess Harper, Piper Laurie, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Maggie Smith, and Dianne Wiest. We discuss Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters and the play adaptation Crimes of the Heart, diametrically opposed in quality but both about neurotic sisters. We also gather round the pool table for Martin Scorsese's underdiscussed The Color of Money and consider the groundbreaking (at the time) deaf drama Children of a Lesser God. Nathaniel Rogers, Cláudio Alves, and Lynn Lee from the Film Experience welcome special guests Jonathan Diaz and Rob Kirby.
