I don't care the critiques! Everybody can say what they want, but Natalie Portman's performance in Black Swan was mindblowing! She deserved every single award out there. Not only for her amazing dancing skills, but also for the credibility of the raw emotions she portrayed. And let people talk. Ofcourse she's not a prima ballerina! That's impossible in a span of one year! But she's a pretty damn good actress ánd ballerina if you ask me!
