    Figured this might have some interesting responses.

    My pick would be Jesse Eisenberg in The Social Network. While he’s been decent in other projects (and terrible in others), this is the only one where he really wowed me, bringing great nuance and sympathy to an unlikable and controversial man.

    Kate Winslet in Steve Jobs. There is something about her that makes the role special. I have a hard time to get enthusaistic about her in almost everything else.

    Glenn Close in House of the Spirits & Garp; not an actress I am particularily fond of (like the Academy) but she has her moments, as in the two mentioned films.

    I watched Leaving Normal (1992) today and had thought that maybe I could add Meg Tilly into the list with that movie. No. She is unbearbale in this as she is in basically everything.

    Reese Witherspoon in Wild.

    The only time she impressed me as a dramatic actress. She was my winner that year.

    Katherine Hepburn, The Lion in Winter Sandra Bullock, Crash / Infamous Cate Blanchett, Elizabeth / Carol / Blue Jasmine Meagan Good, Eve’s Bayou Jennifer Aniston, The Good Girl Gwyneth Paltrow, Shakespeare in Love / Proof Madonna, Desperately Seeking Susan / A League or Their Own / Dangerous Game / Evita Rooney Mara, The Social Network / Carol

    You’ve selected a lot of performances to not like these actors overall.

    Which of Blanchett’s do you not like?

    first person that came to mind was Emma Stone for La La Land. I actually really like her, but I don’t think she’s always fantastic as she is in her Oscar winning turn. She’s great in The Favourite too.

    Leo in The Wolf of Wall Street hands down wins this for me.
