Nicole Kidman, "The Stepford Wives" (2004)
If you thought Jennifer Lawrence had a tremendous year in 2012-13, you must also stand in awe at Nicole Kidman's exceptional 2001-2 era. She was captivating in "Moulin Rouge," chilling in "The Others," and an Oscar-winning grim authoress in "The Hours." But her golden age was officially over in 2004 when she turned out "The Stepford Wives," a horrific update of the 1975 thriller. Losing $40 million, the movie was the beginning of a middling era for Kidman. It wasn't until "Margot at the Wedding" in 2007 (or even "Rabbit Hole" in 2011, if you're picky) that she reminded us of her confident onscreen command.
