    I am surprised no one mentioned Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind. The most iconic female movie character ever.

    I don’t know if I could pick just one performance as “the best ever” but that’s definitely one of the best, even if that acting style from the 1930s would perhaps be somewhat outdated in today’s world.

    Colin Farrell in In Bruges is still my favorite ever, I think. Of course it’s nowhere near the “objectively best” but he kills every single scene he’s in, and the way his character is revealed over the course of the story works so well with his acting. And his crying in the playground scene is brilliant.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    It’s impossible for me to choose only one, I have seen so many great performances, all of them equally good.

    My answer is kind of cliché, but I definitely think Maria Falconetti’s performance on ‘The Passion of Joan of Arc’ is the greatest of all time. It definitely influenced several performances decades later and the character is iconic.
