    I know I’ll be in the minority but Julie Christie was so perfect. Knowing people who suffer from Dementia and other illnesses, she was flawless. She struck a deep chord.

    This definitely had to be one of the closest races of all time. Such a hard decision, both Christie and Cotillard were absolutely stunning.

    Other than Blanchett, I really liked Linney, Christie, and Page but for me this was an easy choice. Despite not fully looking like Edith Piaf and even with the lip-synching, Cotillard floored me in that movie and made it worth watching. I loved her so much that I even bought the movie despite how difficult it is to sit through (especially the first half). She had so many amazing scenes, but I would rank the “MARCEL!” scene among the best in an Oscar-winning performance or any performance.

    Hated the film Christie was in. Sarah Polley is, to me, an incompetent director and even worse screenwriter. Her performance was good but I can not get behind giving an award to any aspect of that film.

    Linney gives one of her less awful performances.

    Blanchett was not as great as she was capable of being and the movie suffered from a sophomore slump.

    Page was amazing in Juno (this is a VERY underrated film and performance). She nailed the character and carried the film effortlessly. This was a masterclass in acting.

    But Cotillard was simply outstanding. As Anthony mentioned, she had serious hurdles to get over in order to impress the audience, and she got over them with flying colors. This is one of the best Best Actress wins, and the second best of the 2000’s second only to Theron.

    Ellen Page. No contest. Ellen Page. The film is perfect. It is brilliantly written and directed and tells one of the greatest stories ever put on film. I truly don’t understand why it’s so disliked here.

    Ellen Page’s performance as Juno is not only touching, it is moving. Juno, this teenage asshole who is stupid enough to have unprotected sex and has all of the qualities of that girl in high school that everyone hates, ends up becoming your friend throughout the film and at the end, you are truly happy that she is finally happy. It’s almost as though you have held her hand throughout her entire journey, experienced everything with her and became close friends with her. All of this is thanks to Page’s sensitive and perfectly thought-out and nuaced performance.

    I truly believe that it will be many years before we see another performance on film as brilliant as this one.

    The unnominated Angelina Jolie in A Mighty Heart, Amy Adams in Enchanted, Nikki Blonsky in Hairspray or Keira Knightley in Atonement would’ve been much better nominees than 3-5.

    All were great but Cotillard was beyond incredible. She had the best female performance of the 2000s in my opinion.

    I remember being really shocked Julie Christie didn’t win.  She was too in fact—you can see in the video she takes out her speech right before Marion Cotillard’s name was announced.  Oops.  Her Oscar speech was wonderfully genuine and heartfelt, I’m surprised nobody has said that yet.  I hope Cotillard gets back into an Oscar race and continues appearing in great material, from more artistic, prestige fare to blockbusters of tremendous national and global reach, all of which wouldn’t have been possible if she didn’t win the Oscar.  Oddly enough, she reminds me of a young Julie Christie, also a foreigner who won an Oscar on her first try at a very young age and was a dazzling screen beauty with strong, often esoteric film choices.

    There is Cotillard this year, and there is everyone else.

    Six years later, I’m still scrambling for appropriate adjectives for what Cotillard did in “La Vie en Rose.” Absolutely one of the best tour-de-force performances ever committed to celluloid, and one that WILL command respect years from now.

    Torn between my top 3…although she gives an incredible performance – I just can’t ever condone a winning performance by an actor who didn’t fully perform their character, just a pet peeve with me.  Sure, sure it would be difficult to find an incredible actress who can sing like the real Edith Piaf…but in fact it’s been done on stage and could have been done for the film.

    Although not a great list of nominees, I wouldn’t say anyone of them is less than good.
