My Five Favorite Performances by Female Actors





1. Brie Larsen, ROOM
2. Rooney Mara, CAROL
3. Saiorse Ronan, BROOKLYN
4. Bel Powley, DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL
5. Ronit Elkabetz, GETT

This was a very strong  year for female performances. I could have easily chosen ten.

Lana and I were really impressed recently with several of the female actors in the Justified series.

Yes, the actress playing Ava is great. Also Margo Martindale.

I think I've only seen one movie in the theater this year. That means I'll go with the lead actor in STAR WARS.

I second Gerard's emotion. In fact, I've redone my will, leaving everything to Daisy Ridley.

Moving back in time a ways, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter Bone put in a stunning performance.

It is good to know that there've been so many strong performances by female actors, Patti.

There's plenty of buzz about Brie Larsen and the Oscar. I thought Rooney Mara's performance in CAROL was first-rate.

Looking at what I watched in 2015 of movies released in that year, I did a terrible job in watching films with interesting female leads. I need to do better.
