Default Top Three Greatest Performances by an Actress in Film

You know that sense of awe that you get during a movie because of how great the acting is. It's like you're in front of greatness and you know it. This doesn't happen often. Very rarely I should say. Did not happen with Meryl Streep as Julia Child, Jennifer Lawrence as Tiffany in 'Silver Linings Playbook', Susan Sarandon as Sister Helen Prejean in 'Dead Man Walking', etc.

Three acting job that makes me notice their greatness DURING the movie...in no order:



1. Bette Davis as Margo in 'All About Eve'



2. Ellen Burstyn as Sara Goldfarb in 'Requiem for a Dream'



3. Marion Cotillard as Stéphanie in 'Rust and Bone'

Good call on Ellen Burstyn.

She was much better in her younger years (Panic Room). But, I've been wanting to see 'The Runaways' for a while. Heard good things about her performance in that.

Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine.

I love anything with Katharine Hepburn, but that might just be me.

Even if she was truly pregnant like that, I would still absolutely devastate Amy Adams' genitals with my own.
