    People when choosing these two mostly go for Rinko but I believe that Adriana gave the more emotional and personal performance in the whole film. Rinko does have her emotions especially in the final shot where she is standing naked for her father on the window ledger, but Adriana’s character is a women who has a good life until she makes a mistake of bringing the children she cares for across the border, from then on you see the guilt in her face that by making this decision she may kill these childre,. Then their is that great scene where she gets arrested and has a breakdown at the same time. If it were not for Jennifer Hudson and Cate Blanchett I may have voted for Adriana Barraza back in 2006.

    Adriana Barraza. For me the only thing that Rinko did was gat naked all the time. And that scene with Adriana, when she’s at the desert crying looking for the children, wow.

    Kikuchi, though Barraza gave a very powerful performance. I was absolutely thrilled that they were both nominated. Kikuchi has the much more subtle, harder role I think, and she gets everything just right. From the glances she gives to the boys in the restaurant/arcade, to her scene in the club where the sound cuts out and the film stays on her face as she sees everything around her without being able to hear the music. Her moments near the end with the detective and her father are heartbreaking and so raw. After seeing her in ‘Babel’, I wanted nothing more than for her career to take off. That obviously didn’t happen, but I’m hoping there’s still a chance with her being one of the leads in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming ‘Pacific Rim’.

    The impossible choice again.

    Rinko is probably more memorable, with her fierce, and yet heartbreaking turn. I loved her.

    But Barraza blew me away. There was not a moment in her natural, convincing perf that betrayed her as an actor.

    Both were absolutely stunning. I’d choose Rinko by the thinnests of hairs.

    Adriana Barraza gets my vote.  There are times in which a non-speaking performance is more difficult, but Adrianna would have gotten my vote period on this ballot due to her heart wrenching performance.

    Adriana Barraza gets my vote as well. However this is how i would rank everyone that year.

    1. Cate Blanchett – Notes on a Scandal
    2. Jennifer Hudson – Dream Girls
    3. Adriana Barraza – Babel
    4. Rinko Kikuchi – Babel
    5. Abigail Breslin – LMS

    I see the poll has been closed for sometime, and I remember Kikuchi always seemed to have more support (and she won the poll no doubt) but I preferred Barazza then and still do to this day, but my ranking of the category would be:

    Cate Blanchett, Notes on a Scandal
    Adrianna Barazza, Babel
    Rinko Kikuchi, Babel
    Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls
    Abigail Breslin, Little Miss Sunshine

    People like Maribel Verdu and Catherine O’Hara should have been nominated. I don’t think Jennifer Hudson’s win was horrible…worse performances have won, but she definitely isn’t my personal choice.
