GothamCity151, your list makes for a good starter template. I could switch out some of the ones I don't agree with for Martin picks like Ann Savage or Tony Curtis.
I'm also very bothered by...
89. Anna Kendrick as Natalie Keener in Up In The Air
placing higher than
91. Henry Fonda as Juror #8 in 12 Angry Men

Martin... Katherine Hepburn for Holiday? Wow, that came out of left field. Even more than Cleavon Little.

I figured most would be.  :)

Only got a chance today to watch your vid, nice choices...obviously I love your Network picks particularly since they come from the romance angle of the film that normally gets kicked, Holden and Straight though are brilliant. Monroe for Don't Bother to Knock was really interesting with Widmark and Bancroft in the same film- on reflection it is Monroe's film tho'. Windsor and Savage? Why not, you are motivating some noir picks from me now.

Yes, Jiang Wen in Devils on the Doorstep is Top 100 worthy, absolutely!  Paran Maum (i.e. the Linda Linda Linda cast)!  RE: Kati Outinen in Match Factory Girl, same comment as Jiang Wen.  Though the Outinen that's a contender for my list is her turn in Man Without a Past.  I'd be psyched if Mary Tyler Moore (Ordinary People) makes the compiled list.  Pretty sure Kerry Fox gets at least three votes (you, me, OAD).  And someone would have to be one of the biggest Julianne Moore haters to not consider her work in Safe as high quality.  Thanks for sharing your vids.

Hey guys, just as a reminder, ballots are due in just a little over two weeks (on November 4th). So far, I have only received three ballots. So get those in.
