Mark's Best Actress Challenge

…In relentless pursuit of all performances nominated and won!

And the 2010 Best Actress nominees are…

This morning, the 2010 Academy Award nominations were announced!  A big morning, as it is every year for me, it seems.  As usual, now that they have added 10 nominees to the Best Picture race, I find myself having only seen 3 of the 10, so I have some catching up to do!

The key category for me this year, however, due to this blog, is Actress – of course.  HOLY SOLID YEAR for Actresses.  I don’t know… all of these women are immensely talented, and while Natalie Portman seems to have it sewn up from all early reports, this is really a difficult call.  Fortunately, I have seen 2 of the nominees already (Natalie Portman, Annette Bening), and when I watch the film Winter’s Bone, I will take care of watching not only nominee Jennifer Lawrence, but I will also be knocking off viewing another Best Picture contender.

The nominees for Best Actress 2010 are…

Annette Bening in The Kids are All Right

Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole

Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone

Natalie Portman in Black Swan

Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine

All of the nominated performances are in films I’ve been itching to see, so this should be good.  And of course, I promise to blog my thoughts on Williams, Kidman, and Lawrence… as I have already seen Portman’s and Bening’s performances, I will not be blogging on them (if you would like to know my thoughts, please shoot me a comment!).

Happy Oscar watching, everyone!
