You couldn't script this stuff

Me too.

It was actually a "double feature day" for me. I went with my wife to see Black Swan, and we kinda just forgot that we were supposed to leave the building after that.

...and for the record, Black Swan was fucking awesome as well.

So anyway, love your list. I didn't see "Kids", "Speech" or "Inception" yet, but I've no reason to believe any of them were less than very, very good. I also can't recall at the moment if I saw anything that I would have on my list that isn't on yours. Just wanted to say that I loved your 10-8, 6 & 5, 3 and especially your top pick. Portman did a fine job there.

Ah, you saw Winter's Bone and Dragon Tattoo! That's so awesome, I have fucking nobody to talk to about those except my brother who watched Dragon Tattoo with me. Both were phenomenal.

Is it just me or was this the best year for female performances ever? Portman, Mila Kunis, Noomi Rapace, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Annette Bening, Helena Bonham Carter, Hailee Steinfeld...hell, even ChloŽ Moretz. Not to mention several non-top ten performances that were great and some I didn't even see that are supposed to be. The dudes had NOTHIN' on the ladies this year.

I did see both, and your reviews are excellent. "Winter's Bone" was a really bleak film, and I loved it - it reminded me of other great films such as "Snow Angels", "Frozen River" and "Undertow" (all excellent). "Dragon Tattoo" was disturbing on many levels, and I loved it as well. It got under my skin in much the same way as "Let the Right One In" - another great film.

...and yeah, it was one hell of a year for actors of the fairer sex.

Her roles this year weren't quite award-caliber, but I think Chloe Moretz definitely gets the breakout star title for this year, IMO. She's going to be huge if she gets good parts from here on out.

I haven't seen any of the other actresses you mentioned yet (I plan on seeing Winter's Bone in the near future), but it would be a damned shame if Hailee Steinfeld didn't win something for True Grit. She was outstanding. Speaking of which, I'm wondering if that would be considered a lead or supporting role. You could probably make the case for both.

I found out that Exit Through The Gift Shop is streaming on Netflix Instant, so I'll probably watch that this weekend.
