The Oscar Quest: My Oscar Nominations — Best Actress (1950-1969)

This is part of a series of articles where I’m putting forth my opinions about what I’d nominate in all of the Oscar Quest categories (Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress). Normally I take the categories as they are, but I thought it would be fun to figure out what I’d vote for if I had a ballot each year. Keep in mind, this is only for NOMINATIONS and nothing else.

My only problem with this is that I knew if I did it, too many people, were they doing the same thing, would put on movies that just didn’t belong on an Oscar ballot. (I would too, in some cases. We just like what we like.) My problem was that people would take this exercise as an opportunity to really just go off the rails with stuff (which, if you read through all these articles, you’ll see me call people out for it, since I know exactly which films and which performances people would put on). So my way around this was by creating what I call a “Compromise List” — after I tell you what was actually nominated and what I’d put on my ballot, I’m making a list whereby I try to make everyone happy and keep it mostly close to what would be there, Academy-wise. You’ll see. My lists usually end up being better and not crazy.

The things to take into account with the performance categories — I can only nominate what I’ve seen. So me not seeing something will be a big reason why some stuff doesn’t appear. And, as always, I tell people not to bother me with one random person in one random category, since I have everything to think about. If you want to say something, wait until you’ve seen all the films/tried this yourself before you do it. And I don’t care about foreign performances, for the most part. There’s a long and complicated answer there, but — I don’t. And the big rule for anyone doing this — if someone won a category, YOU CAN’T LEAVE THEM OFF THE COMPROMISE LIST. Can’t do it.

Otherwise — here’s the next set of categories.

1969

Actual Nominees:

  • Genevieve Bujold, Anne of the Thousand Days
  • Jane Fonda, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?
  • Liza Minnelli, The Sterile Cuckoo
  • Maggie Smith, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
  • Jean Simmons, The Happy Ending

My Vote: Genevieve Bujold, Anne of the Thousand Days

I don’t even have to look for anything here. This category is spectacularly good.

Compromise List:

  • Genevieve Bujold, Anne of the Thousand Days
  • Jane Fonda, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?
  • Liza Minnelli, The Sterile Cuckoo
  • Maggie Smith, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
  • Jean Simmons, The Happy Ending

My Vote: Genevieve Bujold, Anne of the Thousand Days

1968

Actual Nominees:

  • Katharine Hepburn, The Lion in Winter
  • Patricia Neal, The Subject Was Roses
  • Vanessa Redgrave, Isadora
  • Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl
  • Joanne Woodward, Rachel, Rachel

 

 

My Vote: Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl

Space is limited here. Two have to stay, and Redgrave is strong enough to warrant staying no matter what. Now — for my money, Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby goes on. I don’t love horror movies, and even I say that performance was too good to leave off.

That said — who do you take off, Woodward or Neal? Logic says Woodward, but actually, I felt that Neal was a supporting performance and feel like she was the easier cast off. So I’m taking her off.

P.S. I’m a fan of Olivia Hussey (and her… qualifications) in Romeo and Juliet, but space was really tight here. And as a rule, I don’t vote for those kinds of performances. And Beryl Reid was nominated for something for The Killing of Sister George, which I haven’t seen. So I’ll check that out at some point.

Compromise List:

  • Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby
  • Katharine Hepburn, The Lion in Winter
  • Vanessa Redgrave, Isadora
  • Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl
  • Joanne Woodward, Rachel, Rachel

My Vote: Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl

 

1967

Actual Nominees:

  • Anne Bancroft, The Graduate
  • Faye Dunaway, Bonnie and Clyde
  • Edith Evans, The Whisperers
  • Audrey Hepburn, Wait Until Dark
  • Katharine Hepburn, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

 

 

 

 

My Vote: Faye Dunaway, Bonnie and Clyde

This category is pretty perfect. I’m not a huge fan of the Evans nomination, but I don’t have anything to swap it out for. I haven’t seen Anne Heywood in The Fox, nor have I seen Far from the Madding Crowd.

I liked Debbie Reynolds in Divorce, American Style, but that doesn’t fit on this list. So I’ll leave the category.

The only change I’ll make (and I don’t mind the actual nomination so much, it’s just that it’s clear which of the two is better) is nominating Audrey Hepburn for, what I feel, is the better of her two performances this year.

Compromise List:

  • Anne Bancroft, The Graduate
  • Faye Dunaway, Bonnie and Clyde
  • Edith Evans, The Whisperers
  • Audrey Hepburn, Two for the Road
  • Katharine Hepburn, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

My Vote: Performance alone… Katharine Hepburn, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

1966

 

Actual Nominees:

  • Anouk Aimée, A Man and a Woman
  • Ida Kaminska, The Shop on Main Street
  • Lynn Redgrave, Georgy Girl
  • Vanessa Redgrave, Morgan!
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

 

 

 

My Vote: Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Haven’t seen Persona, so I can’t say anything about that. Otherwise, this is one of the weakest Best Actress categories of all time, and I have nothing to swap out, so I have to (begrudgingly) leave it as-is.

Compromise List:

  • Anouk Aimée, A Man and a Woman
  • Ida Kaminska, The Shop on Main Street
  • Lynn Redgrave, Georgy Girl
  • Vanessa Redgrave, Morgan!
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

My Vote: Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

1965

Actual Nominees:

  • Julie Andrews, The Sound of Music
  • Julie Christie, Darling
  • Samantha Eggar, The Collector
  • Elizabeth Hartman, A Patch of Blue
  • Simone Signoret, Ship of Fools

My Vote: Julie Christie, Darling

The Simone Signoret nomination is a joke. But the two performances I’d switch it out for — either Natalie Wood in Inside Daisy Clover or especially Anne Bancroft in The Slender Thread — wouldn’t get on. So I’ll leave it. It’s not enough to kill what an amazing category this is.

Compromise List:

  • Julie Andrews, The Sound of Music
  • Julie Christie, Darling
  • Samantha Eggar, The Collector
  • Elizabeth Hartman, A Patch of Blue
  • Simone Signoret, Ship of Fools

My Vote: Julie Christie, Darling

1964

Actual Nominees:

  • Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins
  • Anne Bancroft, The Pumpkin Eater
  • Sophia Loren, Marriage, Italian Style
  • Debbie Reynolds, The Unsinkable Molly Brown
  • Kim Stanley, Séance on a Wet Afternoon

 

 

 

My Vote: Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins

How they don’t nominate Audrey for My Fair Lady is beyond me. Fuck the fact that she doesn’t sing the songs — that’s their fault for dubbing her over in post.

The question is — what gets switched off? It’s Stanley or Loren. And you already know which way I’m going on that.

(P.S. I feel a lot of people would go for Tippi Hedron in Marnie. There’s no way she ever makes that list.)

(Also, Geraldine Page got nominated for something for Dear Heart. It’s gonna take a hell of a performance to get on this list.)

Compromise List:

  • Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins
  • Anne Bancroft, The Pumpkin Eater
  • Audrey Hepburn, My Fair Lady
  • Debbie Reynolds, The Unsinkable Molly Brown
  • Kim Stanley, Séance on a Wet Afternoon

My Vote: Julie Andrews, Mary Poppins

1963

Actual Nominees:

  • Leslie Caron, The L-Shaped Room
  • Shirley MacLaine, Irma la Douce
  • Patricia Neal, Hud
  • Rachel Roberts, This Sporting Life
  • Natalie Wood, Love with the Proper Stranger

 

 

My Vote: Leslie Caron, The L-Shaped Room

Holy shit, there are lots of alternates here. First off — Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. In a weaker year (like, say, 1964), she gets on by sheer fact that she carries her film and is in most of the scenes. But not here. too strong a category.

Romy Schneider got nominated for a Globe for The Cardinal. Adding to the fact that it would never happen, I don’t remember this performance, so I’m leaving it off until I see it again. I need absolute certainty before I mess with this category.

Then — here are performances that got nominated for other awards that I haven’t seen: Marina Vlady in The Conjugal Bed, Alida Valli in The Paper Man, Geraldine Page in Toys in the Attic, and Polly Bergen in The Caretakers.

See what I mean? Options.

That said — nothing can come off here. The weakest performance is the one that own that I have to keep. So unless something really blows me away, this is staying.

Compromise List:

  • Leslie Caron, The L-Shaped Room
  • Shirley MacLaine, Irma la Douce
  • Patricia Neal, Hud
  • Rachel Roberts, This Sporting Life
  • Natalie Wood, Love with the Proper Stranger

My Vote: Leslie Caron, The L-Shaped Room

1962

Actual Nominees:

  • 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
  • Lee Remick, Days of Wine and Roses

 

My Vote: Anne Bancroft, The Miracle Worker

Some options here, too, with little room. First — Lolita. The Oscars would never nominate it, so I have a hard time thinking that belongs on a Compromise List. That said — which way do you go? They’d almost certainly go for Shelley Winters as lead and Sue Lyons as Supporting, when in actuality it’s probably the other way round. So, that being murky, added to the fact that it would never happen, added to the fact that it’s probably better that this remain as a snubbed film (since it really just fits what it is). So I’m leaving it off.

Also, Natalie Wood is good in Gypsy (as is Rosalind Russell), but the category is too strong. It’ll never make it.

Also — I haven’t seen Melina Mercouri in Phaedra and Glynis Johns in The Chapman Report, which got nominated for other awards, so I can’t speak about those.

I also personally would nominate Janet Margolin in David and Lisa on my personal list, but I know that wouldn’t happen, probably, given the names that were nominated, so I’m leaving the category the way it is. They’d never not nominate Kate and they’d never not nominate Geraldine Page. And Bette’s performance it too batshit to not nominate.

Compromise List:

  • 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
  • Lee Remick, Days of Wine and Roses

My Vote: Anne Bancroft, The Miracle Worker

1961

Actual Nominees:

  • Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s
  • Piper Laurie, The Hustler
  • Sophia Loren, Two Women
  • Geraldine Page, Summer and Smoke
  • Natalie Wood, Splendor in the Grass

 

My Vote: Natalie Wood, Splendor in the Grass

Lots of alternatives here… Claudia Mitchell in A Raisin in the Sun (they’d never do it), Shirley MacLaine in The Children’s Hour (not happening in this category, as good as she was), Leslie Caron in Fanny (also not happening in this category), and Rosalind Russell in A Majority of One (which I haven’t seen).

That said — the only performance that can come off here is Geraldine Page. I’d do it, but would the Academy? I don’t see a slam dunk choice here, and given all the times Geraldine Page was nominated in her career — I kind of have to leave it until I have something I’m certain about.

Compromise List:

  • Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s
  • Piper Laurie, The Hustler
  • Sophia Loren, Two Women
  • Geraldine Page, Summer and Smoke
  • Natalie Wood, Splendor in the Grass

My Vote: Natalie Wood, Splendor in the Grass

1960

Actual Nominees:

  • Greer Garson, Sunrise at Campobello
  • Deborah Kerr, The Sundowners
  • Shirley MacLaine, The Apartment
  • Melina Mercouri, Never on Sunday
  • Elizabeth Taylor, BUtterfield 8

 

 

My Vote: Shirley MacLaine, The Apartment

Wendy Hiller was good in Sons and Lovers, but who does she replace? Garson played Eleanor Roosevelt. Does Mercouri come off? That’s your call.

I nominate Jean Simmons in Elmer Gantry (let’s also not forget she was in Spartacus too) in Mercouri’s spot. I’m leaving the list the same until I watch the two performances again and become convinced that it has to be this way.

(P.S. Two other films I’m gonna see, just in case, are The World of Suzie Wong and Midnight Lace.)

1959

Actual Nominees:

  • Doris Day, Pillow Talk
  • Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story
  • Katharine Hepburn, Suddenly, Last Summer
  • Simone Signoret, Room at the Top
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Suddenly, Last Summer

 

 

 

 

My Vote: Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story

Please nobody say Marilyn here. I don’t want to lose respect for you.

Two performances I switch off on my list. (Jesus, when’s the last time I made one of those?)

My Nominees:

  • Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story
  • Katharine Hepburn, Suddenly, Last Summer
  • Millie Perkins, The Diary of Anne Frank
  • Lee Remick, Anatomy of a Murder
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Suddenly, Last Summer

My Vote: Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story

I have to keep Signoret, and Audrey is actually the best performance in the category. Hepburn and Taylor were good, so I’ll keep those.

And as much as I love Doris Day, that nomination is a joke, and I don’t see how Lee Remick doesn’t get on here. So I’m putting her on. I get why Perkins didn’t get nominated, but there’s no rhyme or reason why Remick didn’t.

Compromise List:

  • Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story
  • Katharine Hepburn, Suddenly, Last Summer
  • Lee Remick, Anatomy of a Murder
  • Simone Signoret, Room at the Top
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Suddenly, Last Summer

My Vote: Audrey Hepburn, The Nun’s Story

1958

Actual Nominees:

  • Susan Hayward, I Want to Live!
  • Deborah Kerr, Separate Tables
  • Shirley MacLaine, Some Came Running
  • Rosalind Russell, Auntie Mame
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

 

 

My Vote: Susan Hayward, I Want to Live!

Oh, here’s where everyone’s gonna say Vertigo again, God help me…

Ingrid Bergman was good in The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, but not good enough for this list. I love Leslie Caron, and would love to nominate her for Gigi, but the list is too strong. I also haven’t seen Jean Simmons in Home Before Dark, so I can’t comment on that.

The list has to stay. It’s too good.

Compromise List:

  • Susan Hayward, I Want to Live!
  • Deborah Kerr, Separate Tables
  • Shirley MacLaine, Some Came Running
  • Rosalind Russell, Auntie Mame
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

My Vote: Susan Hayward, I Want to Live!

1957

Actual Nominees:

  • Deborah Kerr, Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison
  • Anna Magnani, Wild Is the Wind
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Raintree County
  • Lana Turner, Peyton Place
  • Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of Eve

 

My Vote: Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of Eve

I know I’m usually against foreign performances, but I really liked Tatyana Samojlova in The Cranes are Flying. But it would never happen, so I’m only going to mention it. (See that, people? Self-restraint. I’m not putting her on the list because I know the Academy would never have done it. Pay attention. This is how objectivity is reached.)

Otherwise — Eva Marie Saint was good in A Hatful of Rain, but she wouldn’t make it on this list. And Patricia Neal in A Face in the Crowd — I’m not familiar enough with it to say it gets on. I’ll watch it again, since I’m not totally sold on this category. But for now, I’m leaving it.

Compromise List:

  • Deborah Kerr, Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison
  • Anna Magnani, Wild Is the Wind
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Raintree County
  • Lana Turner, Peyton Place
  • Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of Eve

My Vote: Joanne Woodward, The Three Faces of Eve

1956

Actual Nominees:

  • Carroll Baker, Baby Doll
  • Ingrid Bergman, Anastasia
  • Katharine Hepburn, The Rainmaker
  • Nancy Kelly, The Bad Seed
  • Deborah Kerr, The King and I

 

 

My Vote: Carroll Baker, Baby Doll

Let’s do this first…

My Nominees:

  • Carroll Baker, Baby Doll
  • Katharine Hepburn, The Rainmaker
  • Nancy Kelly, The Bad Seed
  • Deborah Kerr, The King and I
  • Elizabeth Taylor, Giant

My Vote: Carroll Baker, Baby Doll

Apologies to Audrey in War and Peace. No chance on this list.

Now… I have to keep Bergman. And while I think Taylor earned the nomination, I need to watch Giant again to confirm, since Nancy Kelly was good in The Bad Seed, I’m going to leave it for now (even though I really think the Taylor nomination holds up better in the long run. The second I confirm, it’s getting changed).

Compromise List:

  • Carroll Baker, Baby Doll
  • Ingrid Bergman, Anastasia
  • Katharine Hepburn, The Rainmaker
  • Nancy Kelly, The Bad Seed
  • Deborah Kerr, The King and I

My Vote: Carroll Baker, Baby Doll

1955

Actual Nominees:

  • Susan Hayward, I’ll Cry Tomorrow
  • Katharine Hepburn, Summertime
  • Jennifer Jones, Love is a Many-Splendored Thing
  • Anna Magnani, The Rose Tattoo
  • Eleanor Parker, Interrupted Melody

 

 

My Vote: Susan Hayward, I’ll Cry Tomorrow

Tough call here. There’s a performance that should be here, and that’s Jane Wyman in All That Heaven Allows. I know the reason she’s not here is because they nominated her for Magnificent Obsession and two in a row for a Douglas Sirk film (which weren’t exactly the most beloved films when they came out) wouldn’t happen. That said — that performance has held up better than almost this entire list. So it’s going on.

The question is who we put on instead. Magnani and Hayward stay. They’re clearly the class of the category. Jones is the weak link, but the performance has to stay, since the film was thought of as promoting international understanding (as the Globes called it). So I can understand that, as much as I don’t like it. And really it comes down to Kate or Eleanor. And honestly — it’s Eleanor. It’s a by-the-book biopic nomination, and I don’t see how it needs to be here.

Compromise List:

  • Susan Hayward, I’ll Cry Tomorrow
  • Katharine Hepburn, Summertime
  • Jennifer Jones, Love is a Many-Splendored Thing
  • Anna Magnani, The Rose Tattoo
  • Jane Wyman, All That Heaven Allows

My Vote: Susan Hayward, I’ll Cry Tomorrow

1954

Actual Nominees;

  • Dorothy Dandridge, Carmen Jones
  • Judy Garland, A Star Is Born
  • Audrey Hepburn, Sabrina
  • Grace Kelly, The Country Girl
  • Jane Wyman, Magnificent Obsession

My Vote: Grace Kelly, The Country Girl

Look, it’s perfect. Why change it?

Compromise List:

  • Dorothy Dandridge, Carmen Jones
  • Judy Garland, A Star Is Born
  • Audrey Hepburn, Sabrina
  • Grace Kelly, The Country Girl
  • Jane Wyman, Magnificent Obsession

My Vote: Grace Kelly, The Country Girl

 

1953

Actual Nominees:

  • Leslie Caron, Lili
  • Ava Gardner, Mogambo
  • Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday
  • Deborah Kerr, From Here to Eternity
  • Maggie McNamara, The Moon Is Blue

My Vote: Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday

Forget 1954. This is a perfect category.

Compromise List:

  • Leslie Caron, Lili
  • Ava Gardner, Mogambo
  • Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday
  • Deborah Kerr, From Here to Eternity
  • Maggie McNamara, The Moon Is Blue

My Vote: Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday

1952

Actual Nominees:

  • Shirley Booth, Come Back, Little Sheba
  • Joan Crawford, Sudden Fear
  • Bette Davis, The Star
  • Julie Harris, The Member of the Wedding
  • Susan Hayward, With a Song in My Heart

 

 

My Vote: Julie Harris, The Member of the Wedding

Too bad I can’t vote for Debbie Reynolds in Singin’ in the Rain. That performance is nowhere near Oscar, and it’s a shame, since 1952 is weak as hell.

I do like Lana Turner in The Bad and the Beautiful, though. Maybe I could make an exception for that. Though she’s not really in the film enough to be considered lead. (Though I guess that didn’t stop them from nominating her for Peyton Place…)

Jennifer Jones was also good in Carrie, but — I don’t need to nominate that.

Honestly — while I don’t love the category, I love the Davis and Crawford nominees. The fact that they hated each other makes it interesting (despite them being the weak links in the category).

Compromise List:

  • Shirley Booth, Come Back, Little Sheba
  • Joan Crawford, Sudden Fear
  • Bette Davis, The Star
  • Julie Harris, The Member of the Wedding
  • Susan Hayward, With a Song in My Heart

My Vote: Julie Harris, The Member of the Wedding

1951

Actual Nominees:

  • Katharine Hepburn, The African Queen
  • Vivien Leigh, A Streetcar Named Desire
  • Eleanor Parker, Detective Story
  • Shelley Winters, A Place in the Sun
  • Jane Wyman, The Blue Veil

 

My Vote: Vivien Leigh, A Streetcar Named Desire

Nothing to change here. It’s a great category.

Compromise List:

  • Katharine Hepburn, The African Queen
  • Vivien Leigh, A Streetcar Named Desire
  • Eleanor Parker, Detective Story
  • Shelley Winters, A Place in the Sun
  • Jane Wyman, The Blue Veil

My Vote: Vivien Leigh, A Streetcar Named Desire

 

1950

  • Anne Baxter, All About Eve
  • Bette Davis, All About Eve
  • Judy Holliday, Born Yesterday
  • Eleanor Parker, Caged
  • Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard

 

 

My Vote: Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard

This category’s too good to change. I’m leaving it.

Compromise List:

  • Anne Baxter, All About Eve
  • Bette Davis, All About Eve
  • Judy Holliday, Born Yesterday
  • Eleanor Parker, Caged
  • Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard

My Vote: Gloria Swanson, Sunset Boulevard

    In response to your not putting the women from Cranes on in 1957, your reasoning isn’t objective, it’s completely subjective. Your trying to look at it from the Academy’s point of view, which is subjective, not from the viewpoint of, “I think this was one of the top 5 performances of the year, so it goes on.” Technically any film whatsoever, and therefore any performance, can be a Academy film or performance. The Academy is bipolar and nominates and sometimes even awards films one year in a genre and then decides not to reach out to that genre again even when a better film of the same genre comes out just a year or two later.
    Also, I gradually lose all understanding of your reasoning because it’s so haphazard and mixed. You say you can’t nominate one thing because you have to respect the Academy, and then you say fuck the Academy the next. It makes absolutely no sense.
    In a slightly different vein, your reasoning for not including Judy Garland in 1944 and Debbie Reynolds in 1952 doesn’t make sense. There’s no way she doesn’t qualify as an Academy performance. If that’s true, then the following people shouldn’t have received nominations and sometimes wins for their work:
    Deborah Kerr in The King and I
    Julie Andrews in Mary Poppins
    Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music
    Debbie Reynolds in The Unsinkable Molly Brown
    Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl
    Liza Minnelli in Cabaret
    Leslie Caron in Lili

    I have quite a few more problems with every single one of your pages, but I’ll just internalize them.

      WHAT? What’s up with you and musicals? I disagree with most of what you just said, as both Andrews nominations and the Streisand, Caron and Minnelli nominations are for some of the most eminently watchable performances of all time. I would understand if the Academy nominated Reynolds for Singin’ In The Rain, and it is a good and iconic performance, but if you watch it again, it doesn’t really qualify as an Oscar-worthy performance. It’s like nominating Martin Sheen for Apocalypse Now, and to a lesser extent Leonardo DiCaprio for Titanic. Their categories are pretty much perfect, and the two mentioned performances are so good, and would increase the strength of the category, but just lack that gravitas that would help them in the long run.
