Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor 2012: Results


5. Robert De Niro in Silver Linings Playbook- De Niro is very supporting here usually being part of a group but he plays his role as well as anyone probably could infusing a lot of energy and heart in the role something he has not done in quite some time. Having said that though this is far cry from his early days such as his performance in Mean Streets for example. 
4. Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln- The more I think about this performance the less I like it. He is reasonably entertaining in his scenes of insulting others, but honestly he is more of Tommy Lee Jones the Radical Republican than Thaddeus Stevens the Radical Republican. I think if he did less Jonisms, something he did reduce in JFK, he could have made the character more his own, and his last scene probably would have been much better as well.
3. Alan Arkin does not do much here more than say one liners in his crusty old man sort of way. He does it well but there is not at lot to it.
2. Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained- Waltz gives an extremely entertaining turn he basically making his picture. He brings life to every scene and probably is the actor who knows how to bring the most out of Quentin Tarantino's dialogue more than any other actor.
1. Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master- This year came out down to the two performances that you could easily say are leads in their films. Although I loved Waltz's performance I find I can give this win easily to Hoffman. His turn as cult leader Lancaster Dodd is something certainly fascinating to watch as he dissects this man in such a complex compelling fashion.

5. Denzel Washington in Flight- Washington although tries never overcomes the weakness of his film leaving him in an awkward position.
4. Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables- Jackman gives a fairly overt performance in that his emotions are overt. This works well for the film and his character which is a film of big emotions, and a character whose whole point is that he must be genuine.
3. Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook- Bradley Cooper shows himself to be a very capable actor. He gives a strong leading performance that is both a charming funny turn, but as well a moving portrait of mentally troubled man.
2. Daniel Day-Lewis-This was a difficult choice for me as both Day-Lewis and Phoenix would be outstanding worthy winners in so many years. The performances could not be more different in both scale and style. Both are incredible in their characterizations though. I have to choose one and for the moment my choice is Day-Lewis for his remarkable portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Day-Lewis realizes this character marvelously and somehow makes a human character of his Lincoln but still manages to make it believable that he would create such a legacy.
1. Joaquin Phoenix in The Master- This is a performance that is easy to hate, but I loved it. Phoenix goes out on one big limb with his wild performance here that is perfectly fitting of his insane unpredictable character.

Interesting rankings. Now I really need to see The Master
Suggestions for Alternate Supporting 2012:
Javier Bardem in Skyfall
Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained
Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained
David Strathairn in Lincoln
Dwight Henry in Beast of the Southern Wild

Lezlie said...

Hi!

Some options:

Javier Bardem - Skyfall
Leonardo DiCaprio - Django Unchained
Samuel L. Jackson - Django Unchained
Dwight Henry - Beasts of the Southern Wild
David Strathairn - Lincoln
Michael Fassbender - Prometheus (I know his not among your favourites this year, yet, I'm still interested)

Lezlie said...

Oh!

How could I forgot Tom Hardy in The Dark Knight Rises. I think his performance was rather odd, any thoughts on him anyone?

RatedRStar said...

I thought Hardy was fine and I understood his voice compared to others to didnt, I thought his role was kinda limited aside from punching Batman and doing some speeches lol, I also disliked his death scene which seemed rushed.

Michael Patison said...

For 2012:
Javier Bardem in Skyfall
Albert Finney in Skyfall
Everybody but especially Rockwell in Seven Psychopaths
Michael Pena in End of Watch
Dwight Henry in Beasts of the Southern Wild
Bruce Willis in Moonrise Kingdom
McConaughey in Magic Mike or Bernie

Michael Patison said...

Also Miller in Perks
Jackson and DiCaprio in Django
Redmayne in Les Mis
Strathairn and Spader in Lincoln

Maciej said...

David Stratharin - Lincoln
Eddie Redmayne - Les Miserables (after seeing him in MWwM I'd never say he'd appear in my reccomendations...)
Leonardo DiCaprio - Django
Samuel L. Jackson - Django
Javier Bardem - Skyfall
Dwight Henry - Beasts of the Southern Wild

Louis Morgan said...

Mark: It's definitely one of my favorites. The fact that Flight was nominated in screenplay over it is ridiculous.

RatedRStar: Yes I love to torture, just kidding. I honestly did not expect to like Phoenix all that much.

Lezlie: Hardy was properly physical in the role, and I liked the less refined George Sanders voice. I am not going to review him though simply because I would not have much to say besides that.

All of the other recommendations will be of course be kept in consideration.

Michael Patison said...

On a completely unrelated note, what did everybody thing about the score to Lincoln. I'm listening to it again and still can get over how thoroughly un-John Williams it is. A good portion of it is so much quieter, especially than stuff like War Horse, and the parts that aren't are just amazing. I also love how many of general themes he adapts from Aaron Copland's characteristic sound.

Also, what other score's did y'all enjoy this year? I also loved Beasts of the Southern Wild, Skyfall, Cloud Atlas, and The Master (Jonny Greenwood snubbed again).

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Beasts, Cloud Atlas, and The Master are my favorites. Of course, all were snubbed. The Academy has zero taste in music. If they did, Scott Pilgrim would have took up every original song slot in 2010.

Okay, maybe that's just me.

Louis Morgan said...

Yes, Lincoln's score is the best he's done in quite some time.

Michael Patison said...

I still need to see Scott Pilgrim (I know, shoot me), but I think that probably is just you. Nevertheless, I agree that the music department of the Academy generally has no good taste. They also have really stupid rules. I mean, how the hell was Drive not eligible last year? It had the 3rd best score of the year after The Artist and TGwtDT. At least they're better at picking scores in general than they are at picking songs.

They are really horrendous at picking songs. I actually liked pretty much everything they picked for 2010 and would've nominated all but Coming Home, though I don't really know what from Scott Pilgrim I would nominate (for reasons I've already stated). I loved the song from How to Train Your Dragon, so that'd be on there for sure.

dinasztie said...

I have to disagree here. Coopre for me is Actor though I appreciate DDL. I'm not that fond of PSH as this kind of fraud really upsets me. And I loved TLJ's performance, which I found essential to the movie's tone. Undecided if it's him, Waltz or De Niro for me.

Louis Morgan said...

I don't like category fraud, but since I feel Hoffman and Waltz are by far the best I would prefer that they commit it for the winner.
