    I was just thinking about this last night how fun these were. 

    Julianne Moore is my pick. When I first saw The Kids Are All Right I thought it was ok because I was a little too young to really get the movie and as time has past I really like the movie much more than I did but apon first viewing, I was amazed at Moore’s performance, It’s my favorite of her’s. Annette was also good as well as the other cast members but Moore stood out the most for me

    Julianne Moore and Annette Bening are equals in this. It’s near impossible to pick one, but with a gun to my head I’d lean toward Bening. Wonderful film. Both should have been nominated.

    I LOVED this film.  It’s so simple, yet so moving.  Bening’s performance is the best for me.  Such great work from her.  She was my pick to win that year.  I also loved Ruffalo.

    Great film, awesome performances. All of them were outstanding (except from Mia who’s once again the queen of boredom), but I voted on Moore.

    Bening should’ve won the Oscar that year. I love the movie and everyone in it. My favorite performance from her and also one of my favorite movies of the ’10s.

    Bening’s performance is pretty much the only thing in the film I bought into.

    Whenever I think of this movie, the first thing I remember was the dinner scene with Annette Bening just turning her head and expressing all her emotions in one moment and one gaze. She easily gets my vote.

    I think both of them deserved nominations EQUALLY. If I have to choose its Moore because I feel she had a bigger ark and more to do. God bless the globes and bafta for daring to nominate two people in the lead categories (I´m looking at you osage county).

    One of the best acting moments of the decade, imo.  Such a powerful moment that floored me in my seat.

    Yep, that’s the scene that pops to my mind everytime I think about this movie. It’s too real and too good.

    I agree Moore should’ve been nominated too btw, replacing Portman and giving us the best Best Actress lineup since the 74 one with Dunaway, Burstyn, Carroll, Perrine and Rowlands.

    They are probably talking about the dinner scene at Ruffalo’s character’s house, when Benning goes to the bathroom, discovers that Moore’s been cheating on her, returns to the dinner table and there is just this one prolonged silent shot of her face processing the reality of her wife’s infidelity. SUPER intense, beautiful and utterly heartbreaing.

    My favorite Benning moment from the movie though, is at another dinner table, when her and Moore are having dinner with some friend couple in a restaurant, they start talking about probiotics or kombucha or something, and Benning snaps! “Oh, oh, and do you know we’re composting now??” “You know what? F**k you. I like my wine, so f**king sue me!” YASSSS.

    Moore’s arc was definitely more developed and her performance louder, but yea, Benning.. the subtle humor and quiet heartbreak she brought to this role has haunted me since.
