My 2-13 all made the list.  (#1 is Diane Keaton in Looking For Mr. Goodbar). 
I had Rowlands at #2.

Then there's a group of notable absences.
14. Jane Fonda - THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY?
15. Glen Close – DANGEROUS LIAISONS
16. Kathy Bates – DOLORES CLAIBORNE
17. Louise Fletcher – ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST
18. Faye Dunaway – BONNIE & CLYDE

Bogart was named for the wrong film.  Should have been THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE

Interesting list. Strange that I haven't even heard of the #1 pick.

Wow, you'd have to be extremely selective when you browse the boards in order for that to occur.  I know you haven't been around much lately, but you were much more active when all those performance polls and decade list threads were active months ago and Rowlands' perf was definitely being mentioned.  And there has been at least two write-ups on the film that come to mind.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Pleasantly surprised that 22 of my list made it including half of my top ten:
5. Christoph Waltz – Inglourious Basterds
6. Audrey Tautou – Amelie
7. Kevin Spacey – American Beauty
9. Peter Capaldi – In The Loop
10. Johnny Depp - Pirates of the Caribbean
14. Jack Lemmon – The Apartment
15. Heath Ledger – The Dark Knight
20. Gene Wilder – Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
26. Hillary Swank – Boys Don’t Cry
27. Mickey Rourke – The Wrestler
34. Michael Fassbender – Hunger
39. Charles Chaplin – City Lights (et al)
53. Heath Ledger – Brokeback Mountain
57. Buster Keaton – The General
67. Malcolm MacDowell – A Clockwork Orange
71. Edward Norton – American History X
74. Ulrich Muhe – The Lives of Others
76. Anthony Perkins – Psycho
78. F. Murray Abraham – Amadeus
81. Jack Nicholson – One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
82. Samuel L. Jackson – Pulp Fiction
87. Jeff Bridges - The Big Lebowski

A lot of the ones on my list I wasn't expecting to see but these surprised and thus disappointed me:
1. Saoirse Ronan – Atonement (one of eight actors under 18 on my list...compared to one that made the list...ageists!)
17. Julie Delpy – Before Sunrise/Sunset
18. Sidney Pointier – In The Heat of the Night
29. John Cameron Mitchell – Hedwig and the Angry Inch
77. Christopher Walken – The Deer Hunter
79. Henry Fonda – 12 Angry Men
83. Tom Hanks – Forrest Gump

didnt submit a list. Found it too hard to compare supporting greatness with lead greatness. Found it too hard to evaluate some one speaking in a language that requires me to use subtitles vs. not.

generally happy with the results.

Thanks, GC! Really love seeing everyone's individual choices - and interesting collective list.

I was too busy to really participate this year - definitely hope to in future. I've got to keep a running list of favorite performances this coming year, writing them down as I think of them so that I have something to start with next time; I was completely overwhelmed at the thought starting at zero this year.

Great job, Gotham, especially persisting in advertising it.  It's tough to get a list like this started and I think this will be a welcome tradition to the Filmspotting annual (or bi-annual) calendar.
