The Next Year

2001


So the nominees were:
  • Halle Berry in Monster's Ball
  • Judi Dench in Iris
  • Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge!
  • Sissy Spacek in In the Bedroom
  • Renée Zellweger in Bridget Jones's Diary
A requested year and a great one, I think. Any normal, usual year would be a relief after 1975.

What do you think? What's your ranking? What do you predict for my ranking?

Sissy hands down whether dragging furiously on a ciggy,putting her arm on her sons arm watching a game,slapping marisa tomei,smashing plates,i simply adore her ruth,best scene the confession to the priest,i like zellweger but feels it isn't an oscar performance,kidman is better in the 2nd half of moulin rouge when she and the film settle down,dench is solid if unspecctacular,berry is uneven but in certain scenes she is so deserving - i always liked her 1st meeting with her death row husband,the sex scene i really dislike!!!

my ran

1 - spacek
2 - kidman
3 - dench
4 - berry
5 - zellweger

I vote for Spacek or Dench. I like Nicole Kidman and Renée Zellweger, and I'm not a fan of Halle Berry in this movie.

My ranking:

1. Spacek
2. Dench
3. Zellveger
4. Kidman
5. Berry

Well, I've seen all but Dench, I think your ranking will be something like:

1. Spacek.
2. Kidman.
3. Berry.
4. Dench.
5. Zellweger.

Louis Morgan said...

Hard to say how this one will go actually, as three people might fend for the top.

1. Spacek
2. Berry
3. Kidman
4. Zellweger
5. Dench

I have only seen Spacek, Kidman, and Zellweger and all are great!

My predictions:

1. Kidman
2. Zellweger
3. Spacek
4. Berry
5. Dench

No idea.

I'm definitely sensing a Sissy win here like everybody else. But Judi or Halle could upset. Nicole and Renee have no chance.

1. Spacek
2. Dench
3. Berry
4. Kidman
5. Zellweger

Probably Spacek, but this year could anywhere.

Sorry, I'm starting tomorrow. I'm really exausted, I was travelling a couple of hundred miles today, so I won't be able to write today. Tomorrow, I'll start.

But I'll finish this year until Saturday.
