Marisa Tomei

Dark Horse Supporting Actress: 'Before the Devil Knows You're Dead'

Why: In a film where the performances are of the highest order, Tomei’s turn stands right up with the boys. Yes, she’s received a lot of ribbing over the years about her Oscar win for “My Cousin Vinny,” but there’s never been any doubt she’s had the chops all along. Under Sidney Lumet’s skillful hand, Tomei’s character can be both sexy and seductive in one moment, shrill and off-putting the next.
