Diana Elizabeth Scarwid (born August 27, 1955) is a retired American actress. She is best known for her portrayal of Christina Crawford in Mommie Dearest (1981). She received nominations for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Inside Moves (1980), and for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for Truman (1995).
Born in Savannah, Georgia, Scarwid moved to New York at 17 to become an actress. Simultaneously, as an honors student, she graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and Pace University. She landed some small film and TV roles before her subtle performance in Inside Moves (1980) was nominated for an Oscar, and as Joan Crawford's daughter in Mommie Dearest (1981) - the infamous Razzie.
This movie captures Christina’s alleged abuse with raw detail. The actresses who played young and adult Christina (Mara Hovel and Diana Scarwid) brought the confusion and pain to life. This movie is from Christina Crawford’s point of view, with Christopher seldom shown, and with no mention of Crawford’s younger children.

13/09/2022 · You don’t abet your friend in that sort of madness, but you do quiet her, calm her, reason with her, reassure her, even placate her--in short, all the things these women do astonishingly little of. (Woodard is the exception; Scarwid’s antagonism is bizarre, even in light of her melodramatic revelations later.)
