Rachel Weisz - The Fountain

I'm sorry to say - I honestly didn't see her do a dang thing in that film.  I'll take her in Bros Bloom tho!

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.

I would totally get behind a voting campaign for her on Brothers Bloom.  :)

Please include a text nomination as well...I am not always able to identify screenshots (though I see that you included a link so I was able to add).

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.

Ripped from my all time top 20 guys and gals performances list.

1. Emelda Staunton - Vera Drake

I know why you're here. - Vera Drake

3. Judy Dench - Notes on a Scandal

Here come the local pubescent proles. The future plumbers, shop assistants, and doubtless the odd terrorist too. In the old days, we confiscated cigarettes and wank mags. Now it's knives and crack cocaine. And they call it progress. - Barbara Covett

8. Natalie Portman - V for Vendetta

Tell me... do you like music, Mr. Finch? - Evey Hammond

9. Kate Winslet - Revolutionary Road

I saw a whole other future. I can't stop seeing it. - April Wheeler

10. Cate Blanchett - Notes on a Scandal

I knew it was wrong, and immoral, and completely ridiculous, but, I don't know. I just allowed it to happen. - Sheba Hart
