Cate Blanchett’s Best Movies

Cate Blanchett is already having a pretty good year, riding high on her sixth Academy Award nomination (this one coming for her work in Blue Jasmine) and her third Golden Globe, as well as a busy cinematic slate that finds her in three movies to be released in 2014: How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, and The Monuments Men, which surrounds her with an ace cast (including George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, and John Goodman) in a WWII caper about a real-life group of Allied soldiers trying to save cultural artifacts from the Nazi regime. We’re celebrating Blanchett’s success the best way we know how: by taking a fond look back at some of the many critical highlights in her growing filmography.

Jennifer Connelly’s Best Movies

She made her debut 30 years ago in Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America, and since then, it’s been our pleasure to watch Jennifer Connelly grow from a talented young actress into an Academy Award-winning star. Connelly helps round out an all-star cast in the supernatural drama Winter’s Tale, and to help mark her appearance in Akiva Goldsman’s magical, century-spanning Manhattan love story, we decided to dedicate our latest list to an appreciative look back at some of her finest performances.

Nicole Kidman’s 10 Best Movies

Paul Hogan may have looked tougher in an Akubra hat, but he wasn’t the only Aussie export making waves in Hollywood during the 1980s — the land Down Under also gave us Nicole Kidman, who parlayed her attention-getting turn in Dead Calm into a critically acclaimed and commercially successful career that’s seen her move from blockbusters to indies and back again while hauling in a mantel full of awards that includes Golden Globes, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and an Oscar. Kidman stars opposite Colin Firth in The Railway Man, and we’re celebrating with a fond look back at her best-reviewed releases.

Emma Stone’s 10 Best Movies

She’s only a few years past legal drinking age, but Emma Stone has already been wooed by Jonah Hill, voiced a homo erectus teen, and battled zombies — her second appearance as Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb’s rebooted Amazing Spider-Man saga, so now seems like a pretty good time to take a look back at some of the brighter critical highlights from her growing list of film credits.

Scarlett Johansson’s 10 Best Movies

When the films in question are as diverse and intriguingly assembled as Under the Skin, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Lucy, and Chef, why would you want to avoid her? In fact, with the Jon Favreau-directed Chef, we decided now would be a terrific time to reassess Scarlett’s filmography by revisiting some of its brightest critical highlights.

Angelina Jolie’s 10 Best Movies

Both on and off the screen, Angelina Jolie has been one of the film industry’s most eminently watchable celebrities for over a decade. Whether she’s appearing in big-budget blockbusters (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), more thoughtful dramas (Changeling), or animated features the whole family can enjoy (Kung Fu Panda) — or simply hypnotizing the paparazzi with her tabloid-friendly lifestyle — Jolie hasn’t strayed far from the spotlight since earning raves for her Emmy-nominated performance in HBO’s Gia. In honor of her appearance in the title role of Disney’s Maleficent, we decided to revisit the critical highlights of her billion-dollar filmography by counting down her ten best-reviewed performances.

Mark Wahlberg’s 10 Best Movies

During the early 1990s, while he was flashing his abs and modeling underwear as Marky Mark, few could have suspected that beneath Mark Wahlberg‘s b-boy cap lurked the soul of a thespian. Now, of course, that’s no longer the case — with more than 20 roles and an Academy Award nomination to his credit, Wahlberg has compiled an impressive filmography over the last 15-plus years. With Wahlberg leading the human contingent in Transformers: Age of Extinction, we thought now would be the perfect time to take a look back at Wahlberg’s best-reviewed major roles.

Ethan Hawke’s 10 Best Movies

Much has been made of the unorthodox way Richard Linklater filmed Boyhood, working with the same cast over a twelve-year span — but it’s also worth pointing out that the cast in question boasts plenty of talent, including Linklater’s frequent male lead, Ethan Hawke. With Boyhood, we decided to take the opportunity to have a look at Hawke’s filmography — and although it’s as stuffed with Linklater collaborations as you might expect, there’s also a lot more going on here, including some of the most cherished movies of the 1980s, 1990s, and beyond.

Cameron Diaz’s 10 Best Movies

From the moment she made Jim Carrey’s eyes pop out of his skull in The Mask, it was clear Cameron Diaz was a star in the making — and she immediately started making good on that promise, building a diverse filmography that boasts an impressive number of box office hits. Along the way, Cameron has also accumulated a fair bit of critical acclaim — and since she’s returning to theaters with Jason Segel in director Jake Kasdan’s Sex Tape, we thought it was high time to take a look back at some of her proudest moments.
