I'm a long way from having a list I'm remotely happy with but Precious Doll, I love your placement of Moon Bloodgood, who will make my final list for sure with her lovely performance. It's currently Trintignant and Riva heading the list for me with Hawkes and Hunt as very honourable runners-up, but I love all four performances enough to understand your dilemma.

I'm still tinkering with mine. There are several films I want to see over again before coming to a final decision. At this point waiting for the DVDs to come out is my best option. Flight releases here next Tuesday (2/5); Skyfall and The Sessions the following week (2/12) along with two I haven't seen - The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Kid With a Bike. Argo and Anna Karenina are out 2/19. The only other one I really need to re-visit is The Master which doesn't release here until two days after the Oscars (2/26).

Life of Pi and Hitchcock have a release date of 3/12 and Zero Dark Thirty streets on 3/19 . Lincoln; Les Misérables; Rust and Bone; Amour; Silver Linings Playbook; The Impossible and The Intouchables(the latter two which I haven't seen) do not have release dates yet. Rust and Bone has a Region 2 (UK) release date of 2/25 and Amour a Region 2 (UUK) release date of 3/18.

It's never too early to start this thread.

I have a slight problem this year in that I am very divided on my best actor and best actress choice. As a result I'm splitting those particular awards. It's 9 months since I have seen Amour and 6 months since The Sessions and with both of them due out on Blu Ray in March I intend to watch them back to back and make a final choice on the best lead actor/actress. So for now here is goes...

= Jean-Louis Trintignant for Amour
3.Ewen Leslie for Dead Europe

= Emmanuelle Riva for Amour
3. Margarete Tiesel for Paradise: Love
