    Please just those people vote who actually have seen them both!

    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.

    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.
