the 2010 LCT nominees, the ones that just missed the cut

As was previously announced in the past couple days, the LCT Awards' film nominees for 2010 are all stacked up. But what of the rest of the crop? I mean, I screened about 120 films this year (yes, exhausting), so there were bound to be quite a few deserving candidates who didn't quite make the cut... and here they are:

Best Picture
6th - The Kids Are All Right
7th - Inception
8th - Rabbit Hole
9th - How to Train Your Dragon
10th - Another Year

Best Lead Actress
6th - Annette Bening, Mother and Child
7th - Tilda Swinton, I Am Love
8th - Lesley Manville, Another Year
9th - Catherine Keener, Please Give
10th - Ruth Sheen, Another Year

Best Lead Actor
6th - Colin Firth, The King's Speech
7th - Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
8th - James Franco, Howl
9th - Martin Landau, Lovely, Still
10th - Leonardo DiCaprio, Shutter Island

Best Supporting Actress
6th - Juliette Lewis, Conviction
7th - Barbara Hershey, Black Swan
8th - Phylicia Rashad, For Colored Girls
9th - Karina Fernandez, Another Year
10th - Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism

Best Supporting Actor
6th - Andrew Garfield, Never Let Me Go
7th - Mark Ruffalo, The Kids Are All Right
8th - Jack McGee, The Fighter
9th - Ed Harris, The Way Back
10th - Dylan Riley Snyder, Life During Wartime

**It's your turn - which unfortunate few didn't quite make your top 5 for 2010, but are still deserving of a nod?**

JAMES FRANCO in "Howl". The film has its issues (though I respect), and he just misses my top 5 too - but he really shows that he has talent there. Wish his Oscar nod was for that and not "127 Hours".

Andrew: It was rather surprisingly good considering the complete lack of attention. I was *this* close to have three double nominees this year, with Franco, Andrew Garfield, and Annette Bening in the mix...

John: Good to know how close I was on some of my assumptions. :) Also, you just made a lot of friends in the blogosphere by proclaiming Ellen Wong so high on your list.
