    Forget the supporting/lead designations, I’m curious to know what FEMALE
    film performance is the best you’ve seen so far of 2015? Sound off!

    I have yet to see a lot of the biggies like Larson or Rampling, but my favorite so far is Rooney Mara in Carol. I know it doesn’t work for everyone, and I loved Cate as well, but I think playing the more reactionary role and comparable straight man is the more challenging task and I think she makes it so authentic and convincing by the end even though she doesn’t let you in very easily. I find that so impressive.

    Fifty films into the year, my pick is Kalieaswari Srinivasan, who oddly had more screen time and material than Dheepan himself.

    Just saw Room today. Brie Larson is incredible. I cannot imagine any of this year’s “so called” contenders possibly topping that performance. I also saw Blythe Danner in “See You In My Dreams” and Lily Tomlin in “Grandma”. I would award Danner a nomination.

    So far, I would go with Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina. What could’ve been a literally robotic performance is given such subtle dimensions and haunting ambiguity thanks to Vikander’s efforts. 

    Close behind is Emily Blunt for Sicario and especially Rose Byrne for Spy.

    So far it has to be Lily Tomlin in Grandma. I haven’t seen an actress like her really command every scene like she does in Grandma. Rose Byrne’s icy performance in Spy is also still up there for me.

    So far the female performances that have really stuck with me this year are Elisabeth Moss and Katherine Waterston in ‘Queen of Earth’, Kristen Stewart and Juliette Binoche in ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’, Emily Blunt in ‘Sicario’, Alicia Vikander in ‘Ex Machina’, Kate Winslet in ‘Steve Jobs’, and Blythe Danner in ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams’. If I had to pick one, it’s Moss for her descent into madness in ‘Queen of Earth’.

    So far it’s the women of comedy that are stealing my attention this year. I’d have to go with Amy Schumer in ‘Trainwreck’  and Rose Byrne in ‘Spy’. 

    Schumer has a great mix of comedic and dramatic moments in the film, but it was great to see Byrne is such a different performance, and a very funny one at that.

    For the BEST female performance, I’d have to give it to Schumer.

    I still have so much left to watch, but my personal best so far is Blythe Danner in I’ll See You In My Dreams. Heartbreaking, natural, subtle, hilarious. Just perfect.

    Carey Mulligan in Suffragette is currently my favourite but I am yet to see lots of the main contenders like Maggie Smith, Brie Larson etc. I also loved, like everyone else it seems, Rose Byrne’s performance in Spy.

    FYC: The Crown, Fleabag and AHS: Roanoke for Gold Derby TV Awards

    Cate Blanchett is just outstanding in Carol and deserves all the praise she is getting at the moment.

    I would also like to mention Kirin Kiki for An. Such a deeply moving performance by possibly the best Japanese actress there currently is.
