Alright,

The lists can include any performance in a movie. Lead, supporting, doesn't matter. We're going to split it into two 50 place lists, one female, one male. The lists can be any length from one male performance to two top twenty lists for both male and female.

The scoring system is going to be a mix of the Director and top films scoring system. #20 will get ten points. #19 will get 11. etc, etc. But every five places there'll be and extra jump of one place, so say #16 will get 14 points, but #15 will get 16 points. And so on.

The deadline for entries is Mon Jan. 11th, with the results announced that weekend, hopefully.

Please PM me your lists or email them to filmspottersperformances09@gmail.com.

And if you have any objections with any of this, just tell me.

Also, to help you with your lists, Verite has started a couple of threads with the best performances of each decade over here.

Is there any particular way you would like the list sent to you (eg in excel, actor/film/year ?)?

Just try and have it look like

1. Robert De Niro, Raging Bull
2. Al Pacino, Godfather
3. Daniel Day Lewis, There Will Be Blood

and so on and so forth.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Wow nice list. Gave me a lot to think about and reminded me of quite a few goodies that slipped my mind. I gotta disagree with only having one performance per actor/actress. You wouldn't put only one of the Godfathers in your Top 100 if you loved both (yes both!) of them just because it is the same director. I simply cannot penalise Natalie Portman for being awesome in everything.
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
