At the Filmspots, we had her as supporting in Brothers Bloom, no? If she has a better shot with that performance, then by all means, I just wanted to give her some recognition because I love her.

I haven't seen Fountain as recently as you have, but to me she radiated something quite special in that film. Can't defend it any better than that just now, though.

Alright, let's be unpopular and bring some comedy into this:

Amy Adams - Enchanted
Think about it. She's selling you something so absurd it should fail but she turns it into something charming (bordering on psychotic). She did a fantastic job.

We are letting votes determine eligibility. If a performance gets more votes for lead than supporting, they all count toward lead. I'll go ahead and add it to the FYC list.

Ferris, I see you have Samantha Morton on your lead performances list for In America and Morvern Callar, and on your supporting list for Minority Report. Can I ask why no Synecdoche, NY? Did you genuinely prefer her other roles, and did you not want her on your list more than twice?

I have watched the film (I sincerely hope I'll manage some sort of a write-up some time soon!), and want to put her on my ballot. I am leaning towards Lead Performance - what say you?

Juliette Binoche - Flight of the Red Balloon
Bjork – Dancer in the Dark
Ellen Burstyn – Requiem For A Dream
Keisha Castle-Hughes – Whale Rider
Julie Christie - Away From Her

I'm surprised at all the love for Irglova in Once.  The film itself is in my top 30 for the decade, but her acting is pretty suspect.

Schmer, I completely overlooked Monica Bellucci in Malena, she would have had a good shot at making my list.

Surprisingly, this category was the only one I was able to fill out almost off the top of my head, and I can stand behind my choices here more than in a few other categories (I may have made a couple of questionable late-night decisions) :)

My list:

Abbie Cornish – Bright Star
Anamaria Marinca - 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Ellen Burstyn – Requiem for a Dream
Imelda Staunton - Vera Drake
Isabelle Huppert – The Piano Teacher
Julia Roberts – Erin Brockovich
Julianne Moore - Far From Heaven
Kate Winslet - Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
Kate Winslet – Little Children
Laura Dern – Inland Empire
Maggie Cheung - In The Mood For Love
Maria Bello - A History Of Violence
Naomi Watts – Mulholland Drive
Nicole Kidman – Dogville
Penelope Cruz – Volver
Q'orianka Kilcher - The New World
Sally Hawkins – Happy-Go-Lucky
Samantha Morton - Morvern Callar
Samantha Morton – In America
Sissy Spacek – In the Bedroom

Hopefully with your endorsement her performance is now on some Filmspotters' radars.  :)

I was only reminded of her performance a few days ago.

Jiseon Kim – In Between Days
Interesting choice. I liked this movie and she was good but she didn't stand out to me. Maybe a rewatch is in order.

It's all in her facial expressions.  The eye movements especially - where, when, and how long she looks before changing position.  Incredible nonverbal acting, I think.
