There’s so many I love and adore and can’t live without, but the two I most gravitate towards are Cotillard’s Piaf and Cruz’s Raimunda. Just peerless work, and the moment they transformed before my eyes into real bonafide forces of nature.
Bening in Being Julia, Roberts as Erin Brokovich, and Kidman as Satine usually finish off my Top 5, but that’s a rotating wheel for sure, Cotillard and Cruz aside. 🙂February 21, 2018 at 7:56 pm #1202498497
Felicity Huffman for Transamerica, Ellen Burstyn for Requiem for a Dream, Reese Witherspoon for Wild, Kate Winslet for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Meryl Streep for The Devil Wears Prada. These are my favorites.
Also, I think the academy did a really good job rewarding Brie Larson for Room, Natalie Portman for Black Swan and Julianne Moore for Still Alice. Really like Jennifer Lawrence’s performance as well but I understand who says Emmanuelle Riva did a better job.February 21, 2018 at 8:10 pm #1202498501
