    I nominate:

    Naomi Watts (MULHOLLAND DR.)- I have loved this very talented and as gorgeous as humanly possible actress since I first saw her in TANK GIRL and CHILDREN OF THE CORN IV, but I think her performance in Lynch's masterpiece is her best, and also what is getting her more recognized now.
