Javier Bardem No Country for Old Men (from Spain)
Tilda Swinton Michael Clayton (from England)
Daniel Day-Lewis There Will Be Blood (from England)
Marion Cotillard La Vie en Rose (from France)
What does that tell us? Basically, if you have an accent or are from a faraway land, you're a better actor. Seriously, even since Johnny Depp has moved abroad he's gained more credibility... (I would SO be packing my bags if I were Jessica Alba. Although I'm fairly certain that wouldn't help in her case anyway...)
P.S. I still haven't seen any of the above movies... Any worth seeing?
