Fassbender is truly amazing, the winner easily I think , Gosling was good and had Steve Mcqueen coolness, Gleeson was great, Shannon was good although not amazing, havnt seen Wieckiewicz but it could be a sleeper hit.

1.Michael Fassbender
2.Robert Wieckiewicz
3.Brendan Gleeson
4.Ryan Gosling
5.Michael Shannon

Thanks for doing my request regarding Więckiewicz! :) As much as I am rooting for him, I think Gosling or Fassbender will take the win:

I was hoping you would review Peyman Moadi or Tom Cullen. Still, it's a good line up. I'm particularly excited to read your thoughts on Fassbender and Gosling.

I'm guessing it's between Gosling and Fassbender....

joe burns said...

I was pretty surprised Fassbender wasn't nominated..

I'm disappointed, you didn't choose Thomas Horn. But it's your choice, I can't do anything with that. Here are my predictions:

1) Michael Fassbender
2) Ryan Gosling
3) Brendan Gleeson
4) Michael Shannon
5) Robert Wieckiewicz

@moviefilm - Did you think Louis was going to put himself through pain just to see Thomas Horn lol he was awful, it would have made for a very funny read though.

Michael Patison said...

Just FYI, I would love to see the following ranked along with the actual and alternate nominees:

Hunter McCracken in The Tree of Life
Daniel Craig in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Tom Hardy in Warrior
Joel Edgerton in Warrior
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50
Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris
Ryan Gosling in The Ides of March
Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love.
Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar
Michael Fassbender in X-Men: First Class
Michael Fassbender in A Dangerous Method
Ewan McGregor in Beginners
Paul Giamatti in Win Win
Antonio Banderas in The Skin I Live In
Anton Yelchin in Like Crazy
Peyman Moaadi in A Separation

You could also include the following, though they aren't as important:
Joel Courtney in Super 8
Daniel Radcliffe in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
Jason Segel in The Muppets
Craig Roberts in Submarine
Ed Helms in Cedar Rapids
James McAvoy in X-Men: First Class
Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Martin Sheen in The Way
Paul Rudd in Our Idiot Brother
Jake Gyllenhaal in Source Code
Jeremy Irvine in War Horse
Asa Butterfield in Hugo
Mel Gibson in The Beaver
Rutger Hauer in Hobo with a Shotgun
Bradley Cooper in Limitless
Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer
Robert Downey, Jr. in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
Jack Black or Steve Martin or Owen Wilson in The Big Year
Jamie Bell in The Adventures of Tintin
Matt Damon in We Bought a Zoo
Matt Damon in Contagion
Thomas Horn in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (haha)

I know this is a massive number of people, but I just have a feeling that a lot of them could rank higher than Clooney if you give them the chance.

My reviews back on !

dinasztie said...

This year seems to be exciting, I'm particulary interested in Wieckiewicz.

moviefilm said...

@RatedRStar - At the beginning he said, that he was not going to review just the good performance, but the worst ranked performance yet, was Jeff Bridges in Fearless (3,5 points). So I thought he could do that.
And I don't think he was s awful, at all. We cannot judge his performance, unless we know someone with Asperger syndrome. But enough about him.. :)

RatedRStar said...

@moviefilm - I agree I would love to see Louis review it, as he seemed to really hate it during Von Sydows review =D lol.

I've only seen Fassbender, Shannon and Gosling:

1. Shannon (Perfect performance!).
2. Gosling.
3. Fassbender (I didn't think he was brilliant at all!).

When you do the alternate Supporting Actor for this year, may I suggest you keep Kidder Sutherland for Melancholia in mind?

Michael Patison said...

Keep Jurgen Prochnow and Herbert Gronemeyer in mind for Das Boot in 1981

Michael Patison said...

I'm kinda curious as to when you're planning to release your next review.

dshultz said...

Oh, come off it Patison. Louis is probably busily working away at these reviews, he is probably just busy with other stuff.

I hope I do not sound too much like a chiding mother, I just ask for patience.

Michael Patison said...

Sorry I had a feeling I would sound impatient, and I guess I am, though I wasn't trying to sound so. I was just curious because he usually releases 1 review per day and he hasn't released 1 in 2 days.

Louis Morgan said...

To all requests: They will of course be in consideration for those years.

Michael: I will be ranking many of those with in the overall. I will try to get Fassbender's review on as soon as possible, but it will be more time as I unfortunately have been quite busy the past few days.

Michael Patison said...

Take your time. I wasn't trying to be pushy or annoying, but I like reading your reviews and rankings everyday, which I guess is actually a compliment to you. I totally understand you being busy and not being able to get Fassbender's review written and posted over the last couple of days. I honestly have considered doing a blog somehow related to the Oscars, but I just don't have the time to make it worthwhile to me nor any prospective readers. Anyway, take your time (I'd rather you write and good, thoughtful review than a hurried one)and I eagerly await reading your future reviews.

Louis Morgan said...

I very much appreciate the support Michael.
