This week on And the Runner-Up Is, Kevin welcomes Samantha Ellis of Ticklish Business and Classic Movie Hub to discuss the 1931-32 Oscar race for Best Actress, where Helen Hayes won for her performance in "The Sin of Madelon Claudet," beating Marie Dressler in "Emma" and Lynn Fontanne in "The Guardsman." We discuss all of these nominated performances and determine who we think was the runner-up to Hayes.
