Thanks JD,
I'm glad to hear so many giving props to Franka. I'm really looking forward to seeing your upcoming lists.

Thanks Keith,
Glad you enjoyed the lists and I hope you are having a great holiday.

Great list. I loved it. I love these actresses. I've seen most of these movies. I loved seeing Kate as #1. Have a fantastic week. Cheers!

Glad to see you including ones like Diane Lane in UNFAITHFUL and Kate Winslet in ETERNAL SUNSHINE. Both of which are on my list. Also, nice to see you giving props to Jennifer Garner in 13 GOING ON 30. She was so good in that film and her performance in it always brings a smile to my face. I would also echo another person's comments that it was great to see you giving a shout-out to Franka Potente in THE PRINCESS AND THE WARRIOR. I had totally forgotten about that film but it is definitely one of my faves of the decade and she was incredible in it.

I'm going to start posting my picks on my blog at the end of the week!

2009-12-14T07:04:21.368-06:00

Hey Matthew,
Funny you mention that as she was on my original rather long list, as was her director Sarah Polley for MY LIFE WITHOUT ME. Julie Christie is pretty astounding in everything she does and AWAY FROM HER was no different, so she could have easily placed here. I finally just wanted to include several completely overlooked performances (Barrymore, Bettis etc) in place of some that had already received a great amount of acclaim. Thanks again!

2009-12-14T01:12:31.892-06:00

Hi Jeremy! Your terrific list set ablaze the noodle and It now begs me to ask if you you might have considred Julie Christie in "Away From Her."

Thanks En,
Pfeiffer was on my list of 40 for CHERI, and I wish I would have included her. She's an all time favorite and I have been thrilled to see her return again in the past couple of years as strong as ever.

Hey Matthew, Great to hear from you. So terrific to hear you dig PRINCESS AND THE WARRIOR as well. I think it is an incredible film and Franka is soooo powerful in it. Thanks again!

Maja,
Thank you so much for the very nice words and I couldn't agree with you more on Sofia and Kirsten. I find her work in MARIE ANTONIETTE really haunting. Also, believe it or not but "maggie gyllenhaal in "secretary", fierce beatrice dalle in fantastic "trouble every day" and gillian anderson in "the house of mirth" were all on my original list. I have yet to see that Huppert film sadly. I am sort of wishing I would have made this a list of forty now as I had to leave so many favorites out like all of the above and any number of incredible performances from the likes of Keira Knightley, Maria Bello, Marianne Cotillard, Maribel Verdu and Juliette Binoche. So many great performances to choose from...thanks again all!

2009-12-13T14:51:49.875-06:00

hey jeremy!
love the list, you've mentioned definitely some of the performances that blew me away, as well. kirsten's been one of my favorite young actresses for quite a while. her collaborations with sofia brings out the best, well, from both of them. miss bettis is so delightfully fragile in may, as well as marina de van. just watched it the other day (in my skin). heartbreaking. and her face is remarkable, so captivating.
and i would just like to mention some of my favorite ladies. without a doubt, my first choice would be isabelle huppert in "la pianiste". pure brilliance. then, there's oh so charming maggie gyllenhaal in "secretary", fierce beatrice dalle in fantastic "trouble every day" and gillian anderson in "the house of mirth". i love my girls troubled. :D

love from croatia

oh, and happy holidays!

It is very nice to see Franke Potente and "The Princess and The Warrior" getting some recognition, Jeremy. It is a terrific picture and performance that sadly many have not seen.

Hi! I follow your blog since few months ago and I must say that I love it, film likes agree. I love this selection of first decade of the millennium. A greeting from Spain and Congratulations.

2009-12-13T04:56:51.893-06:00

i totally agree with you on natalie portman and angela bettis. as for my top female performances list, there had to be michelle pfeiffer in 'white oleander' spectacular acting play of hers, the best in her career, no doubt. and, as for the male performances - i would put there ralph fiennes in dutchess. i think his performance saved the whole film. i recommend you to watch these two movies and i hope you'll let me know how they seemed to you.

Thanks Allison,
It's great to hear you are a fan of MAY and Angela Bettis. I am still blown away by her performance everytime I watch that extraordinry film...thanks again.

Hey Kimberly,
So nice to hear from you. I can't wait to see your lists and I hope you have a wonderful holiday as well!

2009-12-12T15:57:09.319-06:00

Interesting list, Jeremy and a great idea! I like the concept of a list focusing on "performances" of the decade and yours is the first I've seen. We definitely share some similar favorites! Once I finally complete my favorites films of the decade list that I've been slowly compiling over at my blog I may try and compile a list of my favorite performances as well.

Happy holidays!

2009-12-12T14:20:59.955-06:00

Oh great list! May was SO SO SO close to making my top films of the decade list. It would have been #101 or #102. But I'm really glad you mentioned Angela Bettis.
