We haven't had a new thread here in a while. The title says it all. Performances are supposed to be ranked based on initial and lasting acclaim, with a bit of popularity and cultural impact thrown in. And influence for older ones. Just a rough draft for last two years for now:

2013

1. Matthew McConaughey as Ron Woodrof - Dallas Buyers Club
2. Cate Blanchett as Jeanette "Jasmine" Francis - Blue Jasmine
3. Leonardo DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort - The Wolf of Wall Street
4. Chiwetel Ejiofor as Solomon Northup - 12 Years a Slave
5. Christian Bale as Irving Rosenfeld - American Hustle
6. Joaquin Phoenix as Theodore Twombly - Her
7. Sandra Bullock as Dr. Ryan Stone - Gravity
8. Robert Redford as Our Man - All Is Lost
9. Adele Exarchopoulos as Adele - Blue Is the Warmest Color
10. Bruce Dern as Woody Grant - Nebraska

2012

1. Daniel Day-Lewis as Abraham Lincoln - Lincoln
2. Joaquin Phoenix as Freddie Quell - The Master
3. Denzel Washington as William "Whip" Whitaker - The Flight
4. Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Shultz - Django Unchained
5. Phillip Seymour-Hoffmann as Lancaster Dodd - The Master
6. Jennifer Lawrence as Tiffany Maxwell - Silver Linings Playbook
7. Jessica Chastain as Maya - Zero Dark Thirty
8. Emmanuel Riva as Anne Lauret - Amour
9. Mads Mikkelsen as Lucas - The Hunt
10. Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens - Lincoln

Feel free to critique

Excellent idea, Timmy!
I have only one suggestion: Separate actors and actresses.

Location: Daniel Day Lewis has now a won a third Best Actin-- "You think you know me..." Shit.
I prefer the idea of combining. Always keeping them separated is a bit silly.

Here is some other performances of 2013 worth mentioning or considering for top ten:
Lupita Nyong'o as Patsey – 12 Years a Slave
Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps – 12 Years a Slave 
Judi Dench as Philomena Lee – Philomena 
Tom Hanks as Richard Phillips - Captain Phillips
Barkhad Abdi as Abduwali Muse – Captain Phillips 
Jared Leto as Rayon - Dallas Buyers Club
Lea Seydoux as Emma - Blue is The Warmest Color
Toni Servillo as Jep Gambardella - The Great Beauty
Oscar Isaac as Llewyn Davis - Inside Llewyn Davis

Also some part of me wants to switch Joaquin Phoenix and Christian Bale but that's probably personal bias creeping in. Not too sure about Leo against Chiwetel as well but I suspect I got it right.

For now I agree with Sherick. I don't particulary want to separate this list into two different ones. Bruno, feel free to post male or female only list for that year or previous years. I will take them into consideration, that's for sure.
