Best Actor 2011: Results

5. George Clooney in The Descendants- Clooney as usual for him fails to find conviction in his performance. He has a strange lack of consistency and has some very bad moments that are suppose to be his money scenes.
4. Brad Pitt in Moneyball- Brad Pitt gives a fine leading performance here that is effectively charming and entertaining.
3. Demian Bichir in A Better Life- Demain Bichir gives a heartfelt and incredibly moving performance that only ever relies on bringing out genuine emotions in every moment of his film.
2. Jean Dujardin in The Artist- Jean Dujardin gives simply a wonderful performance that is a unique achievement to behold. He never fails to entertain as well as create a powerful portrait despair as well it is truly great work.
1. Gary Oldman in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy- Gary Oldman has the greatest of challenges with his almost emotionless part, yet he makes a compelling and very convincing characterization. His performance improves for me each time I have watched it. A very difficult decision to be sure and I certainly thought between these top two for quite a while. Both give superb performances, and again I have no real reason for picking Oldman over Dujardin, I think they are equally good in their challenging roles, but I am forced to pick one.
Deserving Performances
Ryan Gosling in Drive
Brendan Gleeson in The Guard

I hope George Clooney loses but I figured his win is bound to happen, unfortunately.

What do you think about DiCaprio in J. Edgar?

RatedRStar said...

I wouldnt say it was bound, its not like Colin Firth last year who won every award.

Well, I will see Gary Oldman right now because if he beat Dujardin then he must really be something else!

dshultz said...

If anyone can beat Clooney, and I desperately hope that happens, it will be from either Dujardin or Oldman. The Artist has all the love behind it, and this may be Dujardin's only chance, while King Clooney will become like Meryl Streep, nominating him will become some sort of ridiculous ritual they do every other year. As for Gary, he has the EXTREMELY LONG OVERDUE factor going for him, and Clooney already has an Oscar, and the fact that this performance is completely different from anything Gary's ever done, and he still delivers with flying colors.

Have you seen Shame? Could you do a review of Fassy?

joe burns said...

Wow, what a surprise! I expected this year to be very weak for you! I personally really liked Clooney, and I really liked Dujardin as well.

glad she's 2nd for you!

joe burns said...

He's I mean, ha ha.

BTW, what did you think of Judy Greer in The Desendants? I think her performance was great, should have been nominated.

So glad the Shailene Wooley wasn't!

RatedRStar said...

Ive just seen Shame and I loved it, only thing I was suspicious about was the feelin I got when he went 2 the gay bar, the colours on screen made it look like he was going to hell or summat ??

Louis Morgan said...

Anonymous: I did not think he was absolutely awful as some do. I did think he gave an effort but it did not work out.

dshultz: Yes I have seen Shame, and I will try to do a review of him. Although I am bit busy and I deserving performances comes second. Also I am working on my review of Albert Brooks first.

Joe Burns: I thought she was okay.

@RatedRStar

That is a real gay bar in New York, and that is it's real lighting and colors. They just chose it because it worked with the geography of the story.

Michael Patison said...

Wow! Dujardin just won SAG. Now let's see if that changes anything. Probably not, but at least it may give some people second thoughts about their Clooney votes.

dinasztie said...

Dujardin won SAG and will get Bafta as well! I can't even describe how happy I am! :D I haven't seen him, but not Clooney... It can only be good.

RatedRStar said...

I hope he gets Bafta too I think Dujardins taking the Oscar, if he doesnt and Clooney wins, then ill eat my own slippers while cursing at George Cocky Clooney xxx

RatedRStar said...

@dshultz lol im from England and didnt know that =D haha xxxx

Louis Morgan said...

If Clooney wins I don't know if I'll eat my slippers but I will be very annoyed to have change my review to indicate he won his second Oscar.

If I have to change Dujardin's review though I will have to say "With Pleasure".

Michael Patison said...

You have Brad Pitt listed for deserving supporting performance for The Tree of Life, but what did you think of Hunter McCracken's performance in the same film?

Louis Morgan said...

He was fine.

1. Jean Dujardin for The Artist. 100 out of 100. (A+)
2. Gary Oldman for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. 95 out of 100. (A)
3. Brad Pitt for Moneyball. 80 out of 100. (B+)
4. Demian Bichir for A Better Life. 80 out of 100. (B+)
5. George Clooney for The Descendants. 75 out of 100. (B)
