Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/T5jqR2N2nTw/



According to the online magazine Paste, the below performances in movies were the 25 best between 2000 and 2010. The magazine's selections were widely supported: for just one example, all but three of these performances were nominated for Oscars, and most of those won. Of the following 25 widely acclaimed performances, which is your favorite?

(Paste included the following caveat: "We only selected our favorite from each actor so that Daniel Day-Lewis, Kate Winslet, Sean Penn and Philip Seymour Hoffman didn’t simply dominate the list.")

Overall a good list, but I fail to see why a 20-year old actress playing a hip teenage girl should steal the spot of the performance that won an Oscar over it... one of the most heartbreaking immersions into a character's soul, Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose.

I'm also surprised by the absence of Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream.

Yes, both absences surprise me, as well .I found one other list just like this one in another magazine and it did have Burstyn on its list, but not Cotillard either. I don't know why. The lists are quite similar, overall, except for Burstyn's performance in 'Requiem.'

I will choose Meryl Streep.
I love Daniel Day Lewis but I haven’t seen there will be blood so I can’t vote for it.

Ruby,

You may wish to change the order of your poll slightly. Image #5 does not crop well and small images do not always work on the IMDb Home Page.

Hey Dan, I didn't see this at the time; thank you for recommending a few images. Since the grid view is no longer a reliable guide, I still have a difficult time judging, at times, especially because I forgot that small images don't usually work well.

Penélope Cruz in Volver. I really loved her performance.
It's not the best on the list but it's my favorite without doubt.
