Picking the 50 best films of the decade so far was incredibly hard, but this was far more difficult. Every year there is a ton of very strong work to choose from – some performances are just incredible, and those are the easy ones to pick, but for the most part there are a lot of performances that just as easily could have made this list.

2010
Christian Bale, a supporting role in The Fighter*
Claire Danes, a leading role in Temple Grandin
Tom Hardy, a supporting performance in Inception

2011
Kirsten Dunst, a leading performance in Melancholia
