Best Actresses of 2012

By December 22, 2012

Follow me on:

Top 10 Actresses of 2012This was a tough one. There were actually more than 10 juicy roles for women in films in 2012, and narrowing the list to just 10 outstanding performances was a difficult task. Amy Adams in The Master, Rachel Weisz in The Deep Blue Sea, Rosemarie DeWitt in Your Sister's Sister, Helen Mirren in Hitchcock, and Quvenzhané Wallis in Beasts of the Southern Wild just missed making the top 10. But when it's all said and done, I'm completely satisfied with my choices for the best performances by actresses in 2012.
