This is, by far, the easiest category to predict. Not only is Arquette very good in Boyhood, and she is remarkably good – she provides the most daring performance of the movie, not simply aging along with the plot, but growing throughout, but she has cleaned up in the awards run-up to the Oscars. At times sad, at times inspiring, Arquette’s performance in Boyhood (reviewed HERE is the one that stayed with me the longest after seeing the film. I found myself thinking about her character long after the movie was over.

The other performers I’ve seen in this category are very good. Arquette is brilliant.
