    Greta Gerwig: Damsels in Distress- I had problems with the film as a whole, but there’s no denying Gerwig chewed up Stillman’s dialogue and spit it out like a turkey dinner. But she got nothing for it, not even a Spirit Nomination…

    Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski (I just can’t explain this snub…)
    Michael Caine in The Dark Knight Rises (Subtle, but strong)
    Steve Carell/Julianne Moore in Crazy Stupid Love (Amazing performances and great chemistry)
    John Cleese/Kevin Kline/Jamie Lee Curtis in Fierce Creatures (Best underrated movie; incredibly funny)
    Cameron Diaz in My Sister’s Keeper (Heartbreaking)
    Vera Farmiga/Asa Butterfield/David Thewlis in The Boy with the Striped Pyjamas (Extremly strong cast)
    Felicity Huffman in Georgia Rule and Phoebe in Wonderland (why do people hate Geogia Rule?)
    Allison Janney in Away We Go (I couldn’t stop laughing…)
    Michelle Pfeiffer in The Story of Us (The film as a whole is IMO underrated)
    Maggie Smith in various Harry Potter’s (just loved her)
    Alan Rickman in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 (Brought out the vulnerabilty in Snape so convincingly)
    Kristin Scott Thomas/Rowan Atkinson/Maggie Smith in Keeping Mum (Stellar cast in an amazing movie)
    Sigourney Weaver/Carrie-Anne Moss/Alan Rickman in Snow Cake (Very touching and down-to-earth)

    YES! I was coming in here to post this! I actually LOVED the film and her lead peformance so much. Stillman’s dialogue was just terrific, and although the film was a comedy I thought it was surprisingly profound. What a shame the film came and went with no one seeing it.

    Such a weird, off-beat, lovely film.

    In the past..

    Winona Ryder Heathers / The Crucible – I’m Waiting for Winona’s rightful comeback. Lets just forget the whole robbery thing…
    Shailene Woodley The Descendants – Both her and the other kids carried the movie with solid watchful performances… and Hawaii was great. 
    Kirsten Dunst The Virgin Suicides / Marie Antoinette – Fan of both movies by S.Coppola, and Dunst was great in both!
    Leonardo DiCaprio Revolutionary Road – BOTH were fantastic. Leo deserved the nominations. 
    Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley Never Let Me Go – Great casting with beautiful acting from all 3.

    Today
     
    I would love to see the two kids of Moonrise Kingdom getting recognition, especially the girl.
    Jacki Weaver in SLP was great, but there isnt enough of her so its annoying but understandable.

    Although I was referring to performances this year, I like the inclusion of many you mentioned especially Jeff Bridges. His best and most famous. Aaron Eckhart in Dark Knight I really hoped would be considered alongside Heath of course.

    John Cleese/Michael Palin/Jamie Lee Curtis in Fierce Creatures (Best underrated movie; incredibly funny)”

    This is one of my favorite films. I’ll give a mention to Kevin Kline. I find him deliciously over the top.

    Anyways, I’ve said this already somewhere, that Jim Broadbent gives what is for me one of the best performances of the year in Cloud Atlas. And while I’m at it, I’ll give mentions for that ENTIRE CAST, the directors, the writers, and the techies. Score as well.

    A few performances I thought deserved recognition but I never held out any hope for:

    Mikkel Boe Folsgaard, Supporting Actor, “A Royal Affair”
    Simon Russell Beale, Supporting Actor, “The Deep Blue Sea”

    One man from the same category seemed like a sure thing after I saw the film, especially considering some of the less impactful performances he’s up against:

    Eddie Redmayne, Supporting Actor, “Les Miserables”

    And okay, this performance didn’t get nothing — Female Lead nod from the Spirit Awards — but after seeing the film I thought she could have been much more of a player this awards season:

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Actress, “Smashed”

    And of course there was one who seemed like a sure thing a few months ago, who I think absolutely deserved to get in, but was killed by the film’s mixed reviews:

    Keira Knightley, Actress, “Anna Karenina”

    Jude Law should be getting some supporting actor notices for “Anna Karenina,” among others.

    This year:

    I’m not a fan, but…

    Emma WattsonThe Perks of Being a Wallflower

    The Supporting Actress category is pretty weak this year. If Maggie Smith or Helen Hunt are in the game, she should be in it, too.

    In the past:

    Keira KnightleyThe Duchess

    Best performance of hers.

    Sandra OhSideways

    She wasn’t crying or screaming much. It wasn’t a showy performance but it was definitely brilliant and realistic.

    Imelda StauntonHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    Her snub hurts as hell.

    In my opinion, the best supporting actor performance of the year was given by Michael Caine in The Dark Knight Rises. The restraint that he shows in his final scene, where he looks up in the cafe and *SPOILER* sees Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle alive *SPOILER*, was simply a masterclass in acting. He should be in consideration and will probably be among my personal nominees this year (I have yet to see Django).

    In previous years, I’m genuinely upset that Marion Cotillard didn’t take off for Nine, and also that neither of the two supporting actresses from Inglourious Basterds made even the slightest dent in the category at all in the precursors, save for Kruger’s surprise SAG nomination (which was sadly at the expense of Julianne Moore).

    Keira Knightley is terrific in Anna Karenina. The 2nd hour of that performance is a refreshing bout of melodrama, and a masterclass in stylized acting – when she laments that she didn’t die, heck! the line about Karenin cracking his knuckles may just be the singular best line delivery all year. The traps that Knightley could have fallen into were numerous; this could have been a stylized trainwreck, a laughing stock in the hands of a lesser actress or mundane and lifeless in one less daring but Knightley is intrepid (validated still by her equally bold and divisive take on Sabina Spielrein last year). She deserved accolades for this, but that unfortunately didn’t happen. I hope instead that she will get longevity, that this will be talked about in film schools for decades to come and inspire passionate discussions by those who loved or hated this performance and the movie.
