My favorite role is probably one I saw recently in Game Change, in which she completely disappeared portraying Sarah Palin. I also loved her in the movie The Forgotten.

    One of, if not my overall favourite actress out there. Her work with Todd Haynes – films like Far From Heaven and Safe – are amazing acheivments. Good choice.

    Love her in everything she does. Looking forward to seeing Game Change. My favourites are probably not really for her performances but just because I love the movies: Children of Men, Bookie Nights, Crazy Stupid Love, The Hours. But there’s too many to mention. She really is great in everything. I need to see Far From Heaven.

      You really should; it’s a feature film version of Mad Men from before purposefully paced period dramas were cool.

    I certainly don’t doubt Julianne Moore’s acting skills, but she is an actress that I have never been a big fan of.

      There are always actresses some people love and others don’t really like. I have a couple of them as well :)

    She’s really an amazing actress, loved her performance in Game Change but my favorite is probably her heartbreaking Laura in The Hours.

      It’s mentioned a couple of times, I really should watch it!

    She definitely has the talent and she has put in a few great performances during her career. However, she hasn’t really found THE great role out there that could see her winning awards. So far, my favorite role of hers was playing the troubled wife of a dying multimillionaire in Magnolia. My favorite film that she has been a part of is Children of Men.

    PS…it’s interesting to see the evolution of her hairstyle over the years. Time has treated her very well.

      Yeah, it seems she stays a bit below the radar of most people naming great actresses, but I think she is.

    I’ve got a soft spot for Maude Lebowski

      That is a very unique role

    I’d probably have to say her best role is Amber Waves from Boogie Nights. Somehow she manages to deliver a sexy performance without undermining the character’s maternal desires/instincts.

      It’s been way too long since I saw that, so I can’t remember much of it…

    She’s one of those rare actress in Hollywood, gorgeous AND talented.

      Totally agree with you Ruth!

    I liked her in The Forgotten

    • Nostra says:

      Nice to hear someone else liked her in that. I always wonder how many people have seen it as it seems to be a movie which isn’t mentioned much. I’ve seen it multiple times and think it is amazing.
