  1. CLEMENT!!!!!!!!

    I can't wait to see every performance that made your list that I have yet to see, which is most of them ;-P

    1. Knew you'd love that pick! :)

      Yay! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them.

  2. Oooooo nice one again. Yaaay for Pegg, Gerwig, Franco and Clement!!! And Leo and Adele like duhs :)

  3. McConaughey doesn't even make top 50 for DBC but Jared does? :P Great to see Mads so close to the top!

    1. Haha, McConaughey is great in DBC, but I think he's slightly overshadowed by Leto.

  4. Fantastic list once again! I may steal your idea but break it down by supporting & leading performances, hope that's ok :D

    LOVE Blanchett, she's my fave of the 5 Best Actress nominees. Sorry but I didn't think Simon Pegg was anything special in The World's End though, but then again I didn't really like the movie that much either.

    1. Thanks again! Steal away! :)

      I'll be so thrilled if Blanchett wins, even if I slightly prefer Bullock. Ha, I thought Pegg was one of the best parts of The World's End. :/

  5. Great picks, makes me even more interested in the performances I haven't seen.

  6. Yes @ Adele snatching the #1 spot. So deserved. And I didn't know you were a fan of Laurence Anyways!

    1. Glad we agree on Adele. Oh, I love Laurence Anyways, even though it didn't make my top 10 list. I'm also a fan of Heartbeats. I still need to see I Killed My Mother, though.
