2013 is one of the strongest years for leading ladies in recent memory. It even shined through for the most part in the actual lineup.
From this list, my pick would be Adele Exarchopoulos’ star-making debut in Blue Is The Warmest Color. But how about you guys?March 16, 2016 at 9:18 am #599420
Delpy, Exarchopoulos, Larson and Thompson all gave really great performances. I would put any of them in over Adams or Streep, and the lineup would be substantially better. I hope that Exarchopoulos can get other high profile roles, because she was incredible, and that’s coming from someone who didn’t totally love the movie.

I’d say give me Adele and Larson and I’ll give you Dench and Streep. There you’d have the best Best Actress lineup in the past 10 years. Not that Dench and Streep weren’t good in their respective films. It’s just that they weren’t breaking much new ground.March 16, 2016 at 9:56 am #599428

Even though my #1 is Adèle, Dreyfus is a very very very close #3 (my #2 is Seigner for Venus in Fur, but you don’t count this movie for 2013), so I voted for her, since I absolutely love her spontaneity and chemistry with Gandolfini, besides all the layers she brings for her role with such subtlety. And Adèle will get LOTS of votes, for sure. Wonderful and underestimated movie is Enough Said, by the way.
1. Adèle Exarchopoulos
2. Emmanuelle Seigner
3. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
4. Cate Blanchett
5. Brie LarsonMarch 16, 2016 at 1:12 pm #599474
Emma Thompson by a million miles. My favourite performance of the past decade.March 16, 2016 at 2:21 pm #599487
This really was a great year for leading female performances. I like quite a number of the actual nominees, but there’s no doubt that the Academy could have gone a number of much more inspired directions (as per usual).
1) Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine
2) Adele Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color
3) Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha
4) Sandra Bullock, Gravity
5) Brie Larson, Short Term 12
6) Julie Delpy, Before Midnight (often flip-flops with Bullock and Larson in my rankings)
7) Amy Adams, American Hustle
8) Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Enough Said
9) Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
10) Amy Seimetz, Upstream ColorMarch 16, 2016 at 2:58 pm #599493
Emma Thompson needed the a fifth nomination more so than Amy Adams. Especially since everyone in the category knew it was Blanchett’s to lose.March 16, 2016 at 11:48 pm #599559
It was a very strong year. How Adams got in I’ll never know. My ballot:
1. Cate Blanchett
2. Greta Gerwig
3. Sandra Bullock
4. Jennifer Lawrence
5. Emma Thompson
But I feel like Larson, Exarchopoulos, and Dench would make my ballot in most years. Streep, Delpy, and JLD were also solid choices. Haven’t seen Clement.March 17, 2016 at 4:41 am #599579
My lineup would have been:
Brie LarsonMarch 17, 2016 at 10:45 am #599638
Julia Louis-Dreyfus was unbelievable in Enough Said, which was also one of my favorite movies from that yearMarch 17, 2016 at 12:17 pm #599648
I think JLD was acceptable in a good film. She’s a decent actress, nothing more.March 17, 2016 at 12:30 pm #599650
Streep deserved her nomination. Adams didn’t whatsoever. So I’ll take Adele over Amy.
