Lara.

Re: Favourite Thelma Ritter role

Oh, okay. "Friends" might be too strong of a word, but at least we're not
screaming at each other now.

She and Deborah Kerr became the first actors to get 6 Oscar nominations without ever winning (Ritter in supporting, 1950 - 1962; Kerr in Leading 1949-1960. I think Ritter should have won at least twice, from 8 possible nominations*:

1949 Supporting Actress A Letter to Three Wives
1950 Supporting Actress All About Eve
1951 Leading Actress The Mating Season
1953 Supporting Actress Pickup on South Street
1954 Supporting Actress Rear Window
1959 Supporting Actress Pillow Talk
1962 Supporting Actress Birdman of Alcatraz
1965 Supporting Actress Boeing Boeing

* Her actual nominations, all in Supporting (despite her 1951 role being a lead), were for All About Eve, The Mating Season, With a Song in My Heart, Pickup on South Street, Pillow Talk, and Birdman of Alcatraz.
