What would 2013 have been without the talents of other U.K. actors like Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba, or Aussie brothers Chris and Liam Hemsworth?

With "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," it was the star's smooching scenes with her co-star/friend Josh Hutcherson that were endlessly dissected.
