The best supporting actress category in the Oscar competition spans the age bracket from a teen-ager in "Cape Fear" to an 82-year-old in "Fried Green Tomatoes." It also has a Maryland connection. Mercedes Ruehl grew up in Silver Spring. Oscar winners will be announced at the annual televised Academy Awards ceremony March 30.
The Evening Sun would like to know which supporting actress you feel should win: Juliette Lewis, "Cape Fear"; Jessica Tandy, "Fried Green Tomatoes"; Mercedes Ruehl, "The Fisher King"; Kate Nelligan, "The Prince of Tides," or Diane Ladd, "Rambling Rose."
