    1. Far From Heaven – Perfection!
    2. Boogie Nights – Heartbreaking!
    3. The Kids Are Alright – She had a tricky role and I’ve always felt she was the standout in that film. Bening and Ruffalo received the most nominations but she walked an interesting line of being at times unlikeable, vulnerable and incredibly complex.

    Moore has such a wide range of roles that I admire, from studio comedies to indies and historical dramas. I actually don’t think I would even include her Academy Award winning performance in my top ten of her roles. She’s one of my favorites and I generally commend her for being brave and taking chances.

    She’s a wonderful actress. I hope she gets nominated again soon.

    1. Far From Heaven
    2. Safe
    3. Game Change
    4. Still Alice
    5. Boogie Nights
    6. The Big Lebowski (Lover her Euro take on Yoko Ono!)

    * I need to watch Map to the Stars and Vanya on 42nd Street. I bet it’ll be up in the top 5 or even 3.

    Some of her worst:

    1. Magnolia (almost a parody of her crying scenes and excesses of Paul Thomas Anderson)
    2. The Hours (Best performance of the three but blah).
    3. The Vertical Hour (play on Broadway) – almost made me rethink how much I loved her as an actress. She was not good in this at all and makes me wonder if she’s a bad stage actress.

    To me, her performance in Far from Heaven was a brilliant portrayal of nuance, restraint, desire, denial, inner-turmoil, and pain. It wasn’t a flashy performance, but that made it perfect IMO. She was the most convincing “dated” performance I’ve seen. I truly believed her as a 1950s housewife, which I don’t often believe as so many actresses can’t help but let their contemporary demeanors show. I also love the lack of “crazy” Oscar scene. I thought the only actresses who should have taken it from her if anyone had to was Diane Lane in Unfaithful, Maggie Gyllenhaal in Secretary, and Isabelle Huppert in The Piano Teacher (movie came out in 2001 but I think didn’t get an American release until 2002). I’m still confused as to how Nicole Kidman won an Oscar for The Hours other than goodwill from the previous year and people feeling sorry for her with the whole Tom Cruise thing. I thought it was a pedestrian performance amidst histrionic ones from Streep and Moore.
