My top choices in the order I would place them on my Academy ballot if I were allowed to vote. In other words, these are my top five performances. I acknowledge that this list is already influenced by awards buzz, and the actresses who I think need the most votes are at the top.

ANN MITCHELL, The Deep Blue Sea

GERALDINE CHAPLIN, Lo Imposible (The Impossible)

SUSAN SARANDON, Arbitrage

ISABELLE HUPPERT, Amour (Love)

SALLY FIELD, Lincoln
