The Baltimore Sun's Voter Guide 2016

Best actress

Will win: Natalie Portman In "Black Swan," Portman is valiant -- until you realize that her director is always shooting her from the waist up, she convinces you that she's a superb dancer. But, off her toes, she can't do much of anything here except act urgently confused, especially around her slimy-genius choreographer (Vincent Cassel) and her bitter, controlling mother (Barbara Hershey).--Michael Sragow
