    I voted for Helen Mirren, because she had the most difficult character (real person, VERY well known, still alive) to play convincingly.

    Blanchett, no doubt. She gave one of the best performances of all time in Blue Jasmine.

    I have to go with Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine, a perfect mixture of comedy and drama.

    Winslet: An outstanding performance, but not her best.

    Mirren: yes, she nailed it, but it was a hell of a boring movie and performance.

    Witherspoon: she sings and dances very well, but come on, Felicity Huffman in Transamerica.

    Larson: great performance and sweeper-worthy.
    Portman: the role of a lifetime.

    Blanchett: she is Jasmine and is maybe the role that defined her career.

    Roberts: That sweep is the least understandable in terms of acting skills, because she was against one of the greatest actresses in one of the best roles of her career. Yes, ELLEN BURSTYN WAS SO F***ING ROBBED.

    Moore: it wasn’t her best, but I think it’s a very deserving performance.

    I’d say it’s a tie between Portman and Blanchett.

    Results:

    1. Blanchett/Portman

    2. Larson

    3. Mirren

    4. Moore

    5. Winslet

    6. Witherspoon

     

     

    7. Roberts

    1. Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) – really good but her best is still Elizabeth and that is the film she should have swept for.
    2. Natalie Portman (Black Swan) – multi-faceted performance, but Jackie could prove to be better.
    3. Julianne Moore (Still Alice) – Far From Heaven is her best performance, not Still Alice, but well-deserved.
    4. Brie Larson (Room) – she should have also been nominated for Short Term 12.
    5. Helen Mirren (The Queen) – the role of a lifetime.
    6. Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) – her best yet.
    7. Julia Roberts (Erin Brokovich) – this should instead say “Ellen Burstyn (Requiem for a Dream)”

    And to think that I wanted Cate to win very badly yet several GoldDerby users were trying to convince the world that Sandra Bullock has a chance for “Gravity” which looks beyond stupid to everyone in retrospect and needlessly made me tense until sweep became real.
