I'd go Jean Simmons before Daveigh Chase.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

In In America, I really loved Sarah Bolger's performance.  Amazing child acting.  And yes, I will nominate her.


And how could we have forgotten Julie Delpy in Before Sunset?

Is that a lead role?

Tough to call.   I think it is.  I'll let the panel decide.

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.
