Normally, gathering a list of the best performances by actors is one of the most difficult Top 10 lists to put together in that there are so many to choose from. However, unlike years past, 2010 didn't have an overabundance of stand-out performances by actors. For the first time in over a decade there were more awards-worthy performances by actresses than actors. Actors in supporting roles also fared better in 2010 than those tackling lead characters in theatrically released films. That said, there were 10 actors who stood out from the pack enough to make this list of the Top 10 Actors of 2010.
