5. Stockard Channing in Six Degrees Of Separation:
S.D.O.S is an awful movie, and Stockard Channing's role is very one-note and she never tries to rise above or even make something out of her material. Some good moments, but, in the end, the film destroys her performance.
4. Debra Winger in Shadowlands:
Winger is overall good in the beginning, but her strange accent and her lack of chemistry with Anthony Hopkins keep her performance from being great all the way through. She also lost her connection with her character and she should have taken time to develop her better.
3. Emma Thompson in The Remains Of The Day:
Emma Thompson plays Sally with all the right notes and despite being a little shaky in some scenes and the fact her character is a little basic, she gives a excellent performance.
2. Angela Basset in What's Love Got To Do With It?:
Basset adds a lot of passion to Tina which results in highly emotional, real performance which never is brought down by her fake , predictable film.
1. Holly Hunter in The Piano:
Holly Hunter never says anything in her performance (Except in voice-over), but is still able to show all of her emotions and actions perfectly and creates a strange, striking character.
