Which performance do you prefer?
Love Streep, but what Paquin did in “Margaret” was a real high-wire act, managing to be at once maddening, sympathetic, frustrating and compelling in a way that I’ve never quite seen on screen before. For me, it was the best performance I saw last year, and I think its reputation will only grow in the years to come.
Yeah, I always liked Paquin, and thought she was capable of some pretty good performances every now and then, but I was not expecting something like this from her. I didn’t think she had in her to pull off this character, to be honest, but damn, she really surprised me.
“Anna Paquin made a film called ‘Margaret’ that very few people have seen. In any other year, it would have won every single award” – Meryl Streep
These roles are so different they’re impossible to compare. I went with Streep. I’m so sick of people slamming her over and over again.
Don’t fcuk with Meryl, fellas!
Meryl. I’m sick of people saying that her performance was bad in this movie. it not…. its actually an amazing performance!
Meryl. I’m sick of people saying that her performance was bad in this movie.
It wasn’t; the movie was.
Going with Paquin. Such a great performance.
LOL. Nobody said that Meryl performance was bad. I mean at least not in this thread.
She was my personal winner in 2011 but I enjoyed Anna Paquin performance as well 🙂
Just got done watching “Margaret.” I have always loved Paquin, but my lord she was on another level with this film.
I was really in love with Streep’s performance too. Just wish it was directed by an acutal experienced director.
Just watched “Margaret” again. Good Lord. I thought that my admiration for the film influenced my feeling for Paquin’s performance. But I realized that my strong feeling for the film was actually because of Paquin’s performance.
