25. Playing well-adjusted wives NEVER gets nominated.
Look at all the crap Hepburn gets for her oscar for Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. I used to agree with that, but then I read "The Graduate" and realized that as much as I love it, Bancroft's interpretation isn't quite right. Recent viewings of GWCTD on TCM have made me appreciate Hepburn' non-Hepburny performance there. It's actually very good.
