Haha kung i-judge mo ako sa list ko na super dami, sayo nga performances pa lang, 33 na! HAHA.
Anw, with every bit of fairness, I think the one who gave the best performance of 2010 was Andrew Garfield in The Social Network. Chos. Haha

Di naman kita jinudge sa haba ng list mo. Sabi ko lang, masipag ka. Compliment kaya yun. In fairness to Andrew Garfield, siya ang nagpaiyak sa akin sa The Social Network. Siya ang puso ng film. = )
