1. Lena Olin, THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
    22525571 effd 4188 b4f5 de62dc7a97d5
    Tragic snub. I knew her as Robert Pattinson's mom from REMEMBER ME before this, so what a lovely surprise this was!
  2. Melonie Diaz, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS
    9fdf9dfd 0781 4549 a221 21007d3d6db6
    You know when you're watching a teeny-tiny independent movie and a young actor blows you away so you look them up to see what doors the performance opened for them and find nothing worthwhile? I am so, so happy that wasn't the case for Melonie Diaz. Put her in everything.
  3. Fairuza Balk, VALMONT
    9430eea2 ab89 44fd 995d 32f72ac46fa4
    The clear MARRY in a Cecile de Volanges version of marry/fuck/kill with Uma Thurman and Selma Blair
  4. Anne Heche, WAG THE DOG
    15638783 2d2a 4e15 8d1d 75e364eb4d66
    New pet cause of mine is getting the word out on Anne Heche. Between this and recent viewings of BIRTH, PSYCHO and WALKING AND TALKING I'm ready for a Heche resurgence
  5. Sandy Dennis, COME BACK TO THE FIVE AND DIME, JIMMY DEAN, JIMMY DEAN
    14a3a165 a776 4eef ba6b e45c21b39dad
    Easily could have gone with Karen Black or Cher, but Sandy gets extra points for how worried she made me for her
  6. Javier Bardem, BEFORE NIGHT FALLS
    99a8849b 5a79 4eaa 8f74 7963d6448ebc
    Has to carry this completely cuckoo vision on his shoulders for so much of the film's running time. I guess his work with Pedro must have been good practice!
  7. Helen Mirren, THE COMFORT OF STRANGERS
    Ecbe4eb8 c95f 4023 8866 f4c0b24604c2
    She plays Christopher Walken's Canadian wife, who just wants to watch Rupert Everett sleep (!!!!!!!!)
  8. Michelle Pfeiffer, A THOUSAND ACRES
    Cbf26afe f544 4038 8851 69e97ef1e8e1
    The bullshit detector of this work of failed Oscar bait brimming with misused talent (Jessica Lange, Colin Firth, Jennifer Jason Leigh)
  9. Maggie Smith, QUARTET (1981)
    91eebafe ae4f 4659 82dc da5c54544f84
    Nope, not the 2012 Dustin Hoffman pleasantry in which she also stars.
  10. Alan Rickman, DIE HARD
    04ddb1d2 66c8 48bf bd47 087615e94eb5
    How great is he?? Didn't know he'd be in this! Went in for the reputation and Bonnie Bedelia, honestly.
