There are so many talented ladies around Hollywood, it would be near impossible to pick only five to nominate for the MTV Movie Awards’ Best Female Performance. That’s why we had you do all the heavy lifting for us, and we’re darn impressed by the five lovely ladies you selected.
But the hard work isn’t over, because as always, only one of these fine actresses can win the golden popcorn. Read on for a full list of the Best Female Performance nominees, then cast your vote for the winner today!
Kristen Stewart, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”
Did you ever have any doubts that Stewart would make it to this list? Well, you shouldn’t have. The lady better known as Bella Swan continues her tear through MTV Movie Awards nominations for the third year in a row with her Best Female Performance nod.
Emma Watson, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”
This one should go without saying, but Watson definitely brought the thunder with her performance in “Part 1.” Hermione had to step up front and center once the trio went on the run, and Watson’s sober performance was her best in the series by a long shot.
Emma Stone, “Easy A”
The second Emma on our list is nominated dually for her role in “Easy A” — both for Best Female Performance and for Best Comedic Performance — and for good reason. Stone positively made “Easy A” into the success that it was, and we were thoroughly thrilled to see her in her own leading role.
Jennifer Aniston, “Just Go With It”
Aniston is a staple on this list, and she definitely knocked the ball out of the park with “Just Go With It.” With Adam Sandler also being nominated for his performance, these two are two peas in a pod.
Natalie Portman, “Black Swan”
It doesn’t take someone paying attention to the Academy Award winners this year to realize that Portman gave the best performance of her life in “Black Swan,” and she rightfully deserves a spot on this list. And the Best Kiss nominees. For good reason.
