    Angelina Jolie in Changeling 
    Anne Hathaway in Rachel Getting Married 
    Melissa Leo in Frozen River 
    Meryl Streep in Doubt

    This is actually a pretty strong contingent in retrospect, but I went with Melissa Leo. She had the most to juggle tonally as her character started out as somewhat narcissistic/amoral and yet she handled multiple internal conflicts so well throughout the film that her final choice to sacrifice herself was totally believable.

    Anne Hathaway was quite outstanding as well and this was one of Streep’s best later roles, but I’ve never been super big on Winslet and Jolie’s performances despite both being executed beautifully.

    Yes, this is a super-strong category. There are no enormously weak links here. Let’s say I would have preferred Sally Hawkins in Happy-Go-Lucky instead of Streep, but I like all movies and nominated actresses here.

    This is one of the least interesting Best Actress line ups this century.

    Hathaway – without a doubt. One of the best performances of the 2000’s. She was incredible

    I loved Sally Hawkins in HGL, but the real snub for me that year was Kristin Scott Thomas in I’ve Loved You So Long, in which she made GG+BAFTA. She was absolutely incredible and I really formed many a prayer circle for her to be nominated that year.

    Winslet deserved to win that year even though I think she’s overrated in general and she was caterory frauding. That year best actress was so dull and Winslet won by default since noone else was strong enough.
