Why? Chastain’s quickly become one of her generation’s most respected actresses. Like 2011, ubiquity is on her side this year…

Why not? But contractual obligations keep her from actively campaigning on behalf of A Most Violent Year at the moment. The film itself needs to be a bigger player.

Ranking: No. 5 as of Nov. 25, 2014
