I'm glad you mentioned Ellen Burstyn! Her performance is under-rated by a lot of people

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

Toni Collette for Muriel's Wedding

My favourite movie and one of the most impressive performances by an actress I've ever seen. Toni, who clebrated her 21st birthday on the set, was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Muriel

From the list: Ellen Burstyn

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

4. Jennifer Aniston - Good Girl. (Yeah, I never liked her as an actor, but this one was a great performance although a bit overacted )
3. Hilary Swank - Boys don't cry
2. Jurnee Smollett - Eve's Bayou
1. Julian Moore - Far from heaven. Why she never got Oscar for this performance, I really don't know.
