Many consider Lady Bird or Little Women to be Saoirse Ronan best performance, I think it’s Brooklyn, not only do I think Brooklyn is her best performance but I also think that among the films she was the protagonist Brooklyn is the best, the only two films that she did better than Brooklyn were Atonement and Grand Budapest Hotel.
I think Brooklyn deserves all the hype that LB and LW have.

I love the fact that Blanchett, Colman and Portman are top 3 on most lists

It was very difficult to choose only ten performances, after all, there are so many good performances, so I decided to choose five male and five female performances.
Curious that when choosing five female performances it was extremely difficult because there are several that I like, but when choosing the male ones it was much easier, because I have few male performances among my favorites. And the only male performance from an ‘old’ film on my list is from Al Pacino, while there is no modern performance among the female ones I have listed …

To be fair, you’re missing Warrior, Legend, The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Mad Max: Fury Road, Lawless and The Drop from Hardy’s resume. One could even go so far as to say Child 44, Venom, and Capone are worth mentioning as well – not because they’re good (they’re not), but because Hardy’s performance is the only thing worth mentioning in them.
I mentioned only the four best performances of each.
Since you mentioned all of these Hardy films, then I will also mention Macbeth, Fish Tank, Inglorious Basterds, 300, Jane Eyre, A dangerous method …
In other words, Fassbender still better.

Fassbender, despite his decadent career over the past five years, I still think he is a better actor than Hardy. Hunger/Shame/12YAS / Steve Jobs combo is better than Bronson/Locke/Inception/The Revenant combo

Marion had it until that death scene. Where is she? She was like the most promising actress at one point.
What exactly do you mean by “Where is she?”
She received a second Oscar nomination in 2015 for “Deux jours, une nuit”, becoming one of the few people to be nominated more than once for performances in a foreign language. She will also be the protagonist of the next Leo Carax film with Adam Driver, probably going to debut in Cannes next year.

I will not list the worst winners, because although I have some victories that I don’t like, I don’t think I watched enough winners, since I only watched 33 performances among those that won an Oscar for best actress, so I’ll just list the performances that most have impressed me so far.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that I think they were the best in the lineup, but they are the performances that I liked most among those I watched. For example, I don’t think Emma delivered the best performance in the 2016 lineup, but among the ten winners of the past decade for me she delivered the third best performance just behind Blanchett and Colman and tied with Portman.
Vivien Leigh – Gone with the Wind
Joan Crawford – Mildred Pierce
Vivien Leigh – A Streetcar Named Desire
Audrey Hepburn – Roman Holiday
Barbra Streisand – Funny Girl
Liza Minnelli – Cabaret
Meryl Streep – Sophie’s Choice
Kathy Bates – Misery
Hilary Swank – Boys Don’t Cry
Marion Cotillard – La Vie en Rose
Natalie Portman – Black Swan
Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine
Emma Stone – La La Land
Olivia Colman – The Favorite

I don’t think anyone chooses to play Megyn Kelly because they think they’ll win an Oscar lol. Also when was she ever pissed?
Indeed, Megyn Kelly does not look like the type of role someone would try to win an Oscar for, but it is definitely the type of role bait enough for a third nomination after more than ten years without being nominated.
But I wouldn’t say that Charlize wants a second Oscar so much, looking at the films she made after North Coutry (her last nomination) she basically made blockbusters, medium budget action films and comedies …

I didn’t quite understand the purpose of the poll. Do I have to vote for the actress I thought had the most consistent filmography in that decade? The actress who hasn’t won an Oscar yet but I think should have won already? Or just the actress I like the most?
