    I like the screenshots. But as always, I go for 2-way performances. Sissy Spacek was just as convincing as the ugly duckling as she was as the beautiful swan. Acting!

    My Vote:
    Sissy Spacek

    In the match of the Curtis', the mother may have prevailed, but this time the youngster managed to pull away for the victory. Sissy Spacek makes them all laugh at Piper Laurie as she wins 10-3. Definitely two of the best horror performances ever, they more than deserved their spot in the final four.

    Now, there are only two left, and they must now fight in what is sure to be a close and thrilling matchup...

    Final Round

    Mia Farrow as “Rosemary Woodhouse” in ROSEMARY’S BABY
    "Witches... All of them witches! "

    Oscar’s new sweetheart, Roman Polanski, directed one of the key horror films in the modern psychological terror movement of the late 60’s. ROSEMARY’S BABY ushered forth a new type of horror film, one of his trademark paranoia and angst. The key ingredient to the film was of course Mia Farrow’s highly emotional and tiring performance. The viewer is thrown into her world of fear and frustration, and it is one hell of a powerful ride. She’s been nominated for nine Golden Globes (including BABY) but appallingly not for an Oscar. Truly a groundbreaking performance, if anything it made women think twice about having children…

    vs.

    "They laughed at me, Mama."

    Brian DePalma has always been called a sexist and misogynist, but ironically enough he may have directed the best female horror film of all-time with CARRIE. All of the leading ladies had a nice showing in this tournament, but here we are in the last round and only Sissy Spacek remains. An Oscar-winner for COAL MINER’S DAUGHTER and a numerous nominee (including for CARRIE), she has proven to be one of the best American actresses of the last 30 years. With CARRIE she was able to perfectly convey not only the ugly duck, but also the beautiful swan. On parade were a multitude of emotions, as she uses her jeering eyes in the climactic prom scene to demonstrate her anger and rage.

    Will it be Mia or Sissy? We shall know in 48 short hours.

    Mia Farrow all the way! She gave the performance of a lifetime, and was sheer perfection in it highest form! If you ask me, if she doesn't win, it will be a crime!
