Michael Fassbender and Jessica Chastain virtually came out of nowhere to have some of the most critically acclaimed performances in films like "Shame", "A Dangerous Method", and "Jane Erye" for Fassbender and "The Help" "The Tree of Life", "Take Shelter", and "The Debt" for Chastain. Both garnered a number of award nominations (including Golden Globes). Fassbender just got his first BAFTA nom for Best Actor and Chastain nabbed her first Oscar nomination for Supporting Actress.
Emma Stone became a mainstream leading lady with a move from supporting roles in "Superbad" and "Zombieland" to "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and the Oscar-nominated "The Help". She's gearing up for another huge year, having spent 2011 filming two of the most anticipated films of 2012 "The Amazing Spiderman" and "The Gangster Squad".
Damian Lewis landed a starring role in the amazing series "Homeland" and is well on his way to all sorts of accolades. He's tremendous as a recovered military man with a dangerous secret.
Lindsay Lohan was at the top of the gossip heap with her legal dramas and crazy antics. She hasn't actually been a red-head all year, which is probably a good thing for the ginger community. Here's hoping that she gets some sense slapped into her. Get some serious help, Lohan!!!
Gingers RULE... sometimes
