Supporting Actress: My Ballot & Yours

"Carrie Coon who in her screen debut steals Gone Girl from the much bigger names. Also can we just talk about how between Nora Durst and Margo Dunne that no one has as impressive a breakout in 2014 then Coon. " - Eion Daly

"Agata Kulesza blew my MIND in "Ida," so she easily gets my top ballot." - Lawson

"Keira Knightley. She just seemed like that rare person who can make you want to be better. So endearing, charming and she also has moments where she shows that she knows more about the world. A silent revolutionary." - MCV

YOURS? And what'cha think of mine?

It's OK honey. Now you make awesome Funny or Die skits. It all works out for the best.

Full disclosure: I kind of liked Aeon Flux. It's was a silly sci-fi movie with slick visuals. Theron was good in it. The problem is that no adaptation could ever cut through the convoluted logic of the animated series unless they just cut clips of episodes together and added transition voice overs.

But it's ok. Now she does amazing films like Young Adult and that makes it all better.

Not that Charlize isn't respected. Not that Charlize doesn't have a lot of love from the world. However, she's still underrated as an actress.

In fairness, it's not like Monster was a better movie.

Aeon Flux!

My abiding memory from that film is Pete Postlethwaite's hilarious chrysalis outfit. I did like Charlize being all balletic though. Can she do a good film where she's flying around being graceful? Like Maggie Cheung in Hero or something.

And now I followed up Young Adult with a screeching, over-the-top Evil Queen.

More like, "Remembered those five years or so I followed up my Oscar with equally uninteresting performances and films, one of which I was even Oscar-nominated for?" Thank god for this resurgence. I'd gladly take a batshit crazy Evil Queen over Josie Aimes any day.

I'm not going to lie. For awhile I thought Charlize Theron was going to fade back into a non-essential actress because it felt like she was in a string of endless flops after her Oscar. Her career has been so amazing in the past couple years, however.

"Remember that time I cashed that huge check? Yeah, that was cool."

I shouldn't have watched Arrested Development before Snow White and the Huntsman.
