I enjoy seeing Melanie Laurent listed as Lead. I'll do whatever it takes to get her on any list but it was actually her movie.

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?

Oh no!  Forgot!  I LOVEEEED her in SNY - leaving her off was a major omition

Thanks for the remind.

See ,these are the things that keep me up at night.

I definitely thought Morton in SNY was more of a supporting role, myself.

ugh.  you're probably right.  I'm learning I'm not the best judge of stuff like that....
