British actress Lesley Manville is a veteran of such Mike Leigh films as “Vera Drake” and “All or Nothing,” but she is little known in Hollywood.

That’s changing with Leigh’s “Another Year,” in which Manville is the mirror reverse of Sally Hawkins’ eternal optimist in the director’s 2008 film “Happy-Go-Lucky.” Manville is heartbreaking as a lovelorn woman who sees everyone around her getting at least some of what they want, while she perpetually holds an empty glass.
While reviews are mixed at best for Tyler Perry’s “For Colored Girls,” the ensemble drama does offer some excellent performances, with Loretta Devine and Kimberly Elise among the standouts.

Other possibilities: Helena Bonham Carter, “The King’s Speech”; Marion Cotillard, “Inception”; Minnie Driver, “Conviction”; Cecile de France, “Hereafter”; Greta Gerwig, “Greenberg”; Gemma Jones, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”; Keira Knightley, “Never Let Me Go”; Mila Kunis, “Black Swan”; Ellen Page, “Inception”; Rosamund Pike, “Barney’s Version”; Sissy Spacek, “Get Low”; Olivia Williams, “The Ghost Writer.”
