Or if you can’t pick one, your top three. My top three are: Black Swan, Jackie, and Closer. She was also good in Annihilation, particularly in the scene towards the end with the alien that mimicked her.March 30, 2020 at 7:48 pm #1203402007
One of the best performances of all time.March 30, 2020 at 7:57 pm #1203402011
I go back and forth between Black Swan and Jackie. Both are two of the best performances this century.March 30, 2020 at 11:01 pm #1203402155
Song to Song (sue me)
haven’t seen Closer for quite a while, not sure whether I should put it up here, but she deserved to win that year for sureMarch 31, 2020 at 12:07 am #1203402192
Closer, no question.March 31, 2020 at 4:07 am #1203402296
And then Jackie

Why do you prefer Closer over Jackie and Black Swan? And for those of you that prefer Black Swan over Jackie or vice versa, what are your reasons?March 31, 2020 at 7:09 am #1203402554
For me, it’s easily JACKIE.

She should have again won for Jackie. It’s just cringe when you deliver a masterclass and a cute mediocre actress wins her career award instead and you make her performance look like a performance in a Disney channel movie.

There’s no greater performance than Portman in Black Swan in Actress category. However, Jackie would have been a worthy second win.
I understand why Stone won. She was Goop to Portman’s Blanchett. Charming, charismatic role in a big boxoffice hit. But unlike Goop, Stone keeps coming back (as a nominee) and will likely win again cause she is an actress not an Internet schemer.March 31, 2020 at 9:37 am #1203402769

This seems like a Portman-praise thread, but this comparison stings my eyes.
