I've been inspired by my current signature so wanted to see if she had many other fans round here biggrin.gif

PENÉLOPE CRUZ

I think she's great in everything wub.gif I'd rank them like this:

1 Volver
2 Vicky Cristina Barcelona
3 Nine

Volver was her best performance in terms of seeming like a real person and the whole film works so well because of her in the lead role so I'd have to pick that as her best (she was way better than Helen Mirren for 'The Queen' that year imo but Meryl Streep would've been my winner for 'The Devil Wears Prada', I think)! Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a great performance too and I'm glad she got her Oscar for it, I love the film anyway but it gets sooo much more exciting once she explodes on the screen and she makes a huge impact in the final third of the movie. I liked her in Nine too but it's not as impressive as her other performances even though her musical number is easily my favourite and she does the emotional scenes well too, she was my favourite from the movie so I'm glad she got the recognition out of everyone from the all-star cast.

She's playing Ingrid Bergman's Oscar-winning role in the remake of Murder on the Orient Express this year so I'd love for her to be back in awards contention this year, it's been too long sad.gif

Her performance in Vicky Cristina Barcelona is one of my all time favs. I dunno how she got nominated for Nine though. (I do agree her musical number was the best by far)

Also seen her in very little!

Only seen Penelope in G-Force (a voice role so don't remember her at all in that!), Zoolander 2 (which she was horrendous in) and Grimsby (which she was enjoyable in!) so struggling to form much of an opinion on Penelope tbh!
