Rachel, Connie, Taryn, and Miranda...

What do Rachel McAdams, Emmanuelle Béart, Connie Nielsen, Taryn Manning, Emily Watson, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Cara Seymour, Miranda Otto, Cameron Diaz, and Isabella Rossellini have in common? They're appreciated by yours truly today in the Top 100 Actresses of the Aughts Countdown (numbers #60 through #51).

Coming soon: The Top 50. How high will your favorites place?

This is such an interesting concept! I love it.

I was even contemplating blatantly stealing this from you and making my own list for my blog. But I've started so many lists that Ive never completed...

which reminds me, your personal canon!

Nicole Kidman - Top five
Cate Blanchett - Top 15
Meryl Streep - Top 20/25 (Depends on how much you choose to value Angels in America)
Helen Mirren - Top 40
Samantha Morton - Top 25
Kate Winslet - Top 10
Julianne Moore - Top 10
Kirsten Dunst - Top 15

Am I close?? That hard part is trying to guess Pfeiffer's placement: she has White Oleander AND What Lies Beneath (plus her two 99 performances if you're gonna cheat).

Nat will have Michelle on the Top 10, no doubt. Or at least Top 15.

Hmm. I can't imagine a top ten without Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet. Julianne Moore, too, were it not for Evolution, The Shipping News, the Laws of Attraction, The Forgotten...

My hope is you'll find room at/near the top for Patricia Clarkson, Toni Collette, Samantha Morton, Frances McDormand, and Natalie Portman. But what interests me most is what you'll do with divorcée Renée!

and Linsay Lohan!

Javier said...

Please tell us Zellweger won't feature in that list.... AT ALL.

hehe... kidding (kinda)

Z kinda has to figure in if you're being honest and counting Nurse Betty and Bridget... Chicago wasn't half bad either... really the only dismal thing she's done is Cold Mountain, and I don't think that should disqualify her completely.

Yeah, tough one for Julianne... really the only great great perf is FFH, and then there are a smattering of good (The Hours), good enough (Hannibal, The Forgotten, The Shipping News) and downright bad (Laws of Attraction, Evolution). But then, I haven't even seen the "bad" ones... so I can't judge.

Oh, and Wallace & Gromit clearly needs to be an A- and not B+. Man, that movie was brilliant.

CHeck my blog for my own little review.

(For some reason, Australia got this movie a month before US and UK. Odd)

Just thought I'd throw in something related to Miranda Otto. While she has been good lately, nothing will beat her quintuplet of golden Australian film roles in 1997 and 98.

Doing Time For Patsy Cline, The Well, In The Winter Dark and Love Serenade. The latter isn't the best of films but she's great. The other three are swell on their own right with Miranda giving fab crazy girl performances.
