Whatever the case, you need to watch End of Watch before you make your final rankings.

I'm hoping Trintignant will win, but I'm not so sure. He was great!

ive heard very good things about Holy Motors =D it looks a very strange film lol.

Ugh, The Grey. Such a boring, overrated film. Sad to not see Lerman not included, but I get that there are a lot of interesting perfs to choose from. I've seen Black and McConaughey and both are good not great. Neeson was blah.

Superb lineup. I haven't seen The Grey yet, but I've seen the other four films, so I'll hazard a guess right now:

5. McConaughey
4. Neeson
3. Black
2. Trintignant
1. Lavant

Not knowing your precise tastes, I might swap 1 and 2. Otherwise, I'll leave it as is.

1) Jean Louis Trintignant (perfect)
2) Denis Lavant
3) Jack Black (maybe his best performance)
4) Matthew McConaughey
5) Liam Neeson

And where the hell is Hawkes? :)

4. Black
5. McConaughey

No love for Tom Holland? I thought he was the most integral and best part of The Impossible. It reminded me of last year how Hunter McCracken outshone both his adult A-list co-stars in The Tree of Life.

Strange that Hawkes was not in there he's currently my no 3.

Louis Morgan said...

To quickly explain Hawkes. I wanted to spread the wealth a little bit since I have already reviewed him once for an alternate year. Also I honestly did not feel like watching his film again as I really did not much care for it. I did think he was really good though.

As for the rest I have to choose five, and I'm happy to review these five.

im glad Hawkes is not on, I always like to see diverse choices so that it makes guessing the 5 positions a little harder, because if Hawkes was on this list to make it 6th I doubt he would have beaten Jean Louis and Lavant.

Trintignant was wonderful! I don't the Oscar snub. Such a magnificent performance!
