Ok, following is a list of Amazing/awesome performances in film from some very talented actors/actresses. Their performances stood out to me and if you have the chance you should check them out (Helena Bonham Carter’s turn as "Ophelia" in Mel Gibson’s "Hamlet" will break your heart). Let me know what you think.

PS – I’m sure I’ll be adding to this list as time passes. Let me know if there’s anyone I’ve missed.

*Kate Hudson in “Almost Famous”
