Shirley MacLaine & Terms of a Dear Mint

I just rewatched The Apartment and thought MacLaine was just so specular that I looked up her filmography. Many said "Terms of a Dear Mint" was the best sentimental pic ever made. From there I did a deep dive and her competition for the Oscars was insane the year that she won. Karen Silkwood was a contender. Was Shirley’s performance that good? I watched it last night and it was no On Goldeny Pond. I didn't think it was that stellar, but I do like MacLaine. She seems completely separate from Hollywood, yet had received multiple Oscar nomination. WHET ever happened to her?

How doe we know it wasn't Terms of a Deer Mint?

Streep should've won for Silkwood, but there was no way they were going to give her her (well-deserved) THIRD that quickly.

WHET on DL? The Sachi Parker book happened and people round here don't go for stars who are cruel to their children.

I find it interesting that Shirley wasn't nominated again after Terms, despite turning in good performances in movies like Madame Soustazka, Steel Magnolias, Postcards from the Edge and The Evening Star.

R5 Thank you! This movie about a beloved mint and its Oscar winning star are both very important.

This must be the least funny running gag in the history of Datalounge.
