This week on the season finale of And the Runner-Up Is, Kevin welcomes This Had Oscar Buzz cohost Chris Feil to discuss the 1959 Oscar race for Best Actress, where Simone Signoret won for her performance in "Room at the Top," beating Doris Day in "Pillow Talk," Audrey Hepburn in "The Nun's Story," and Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor in "Suddenly, Last Summer."
