Please just those people vote who actually have seen them both!
Which performance do you prefer?September 7, 2012 at 10:44 am #539791
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.September 7, 2012 at 10:47 am #539792
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.September 7, 2012 at 11:47 am #539793
“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 StreepSeptember 7, 2012 at 3:07 pm #539794
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.September 7, 2012 at 3:42 pm #539795
Don’t fcuk with Meryl, fellas!September 7, 2012 at 5:43 pm #539796
Meryl. I’m sick of people saying that her performance was bad in this movie. it not…. its actually an amazing performance!September 7, 2012 at 10:04 pm #539798
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 🙂September 22, 2012 at 1:47 pm #539799
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.November 25, 2012 at 12:34 am #539800
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.
