In the season premiere of And the Runner-Up Is, Kevin welcomes The Awards Connection and AwardsWatch writer Andrew Carden to discuss the 1927-28 Oscar race for Best Actress, where Janet Gaynor won for her three performances in "7th Heaven," "Street Angel," and "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans," beating Louise Dresser for "A Ship Comes In" and Gloria Swanson for "Sadie Thompson." We discuss all of these nominated performances and determine who we think was the runner-up to Gaynor.
