Mark's Best Actress Challenge

…In relentless pursuit of all performances nominated and won!

Countdown & Recap

When I started my Best Actress Challenge back in April, I believe that I estimated that I had to see 196 performances.  Whether that number is indeed accurate, I’m not quite sure, but just to keep myself on track, I thought I would do an occasional ‘countdown’ of those I have already seen.  I offer the list, so far, to you below.  If you missed my comments on any of these and would like to read them, please scroll back through my blogs!
