oh wow thanks for reviewing Chow Yun Fat, Louis =D im gonna go for Chow Yun Fat, , the amount of energy and character he puts into the main villain is amazing.Everyone else has to see Let The Bullets Fly (the film is extremely entertaining)1)Chow Yun Fat2)Sam Rockwell3)Andrew Garfield4)Pierce Brosman5)Ben Mandelsohn
1. Sam Rockwell2. Andrew Garfield3. Chow Yun-fat4. Ben Mendelsohn5. Pierce Brosnan
I only nominate Garfield here. I'm shocked that Fassbender didn't make this lineup. Brosnan was very good as well. Mendelsohn is good, but not my favorite. I haven't seen Yun-Fat or Rockwell.I'm guessing:1) Mendelsohn2) Brosnan3) Yun-Fat4) Garfield5) Rockwellpersonally...1) Lonsdale/Of Gods and Men2) Garfield/The Social Network & Never Let Me Go3) Fassbender/Fish Tank4) Hawkes/Winter's Bone5) Lindsay/Four Lions
I put Fassbender in 09.

this is off topic but what did you make to the film The Constant Gardener and its performances?
I thought it was a pretty effective thriller even if I find evil corporation plots tiresome. Ralph Fiennes was very good, although I thought Weisz overplayed her role a little bit. The supporting cast was solid with the standout being Donald Sumpter.
Constant Gardener is my favorite film of 2005. Call it a testament to my overall distaste for that year as a whole. I'd have The Proposition as my choice in a heartbeat, but I go by Academy rules, so it's 2006.
I really liked the Constant Gardener too, I hate 2005 for films but I liked this, Ralph Fiennes is really warm and loving in his shy guy role.

Not sure why everyone's putting Mendelsohn so low - he was genuinely chilling.1. Mendelsohn2. Garfield3. Brosnan4. Rockwell5. Yun-Fat
Also just out of curiosity Louis, I was looking at your complete ranking of all the nominated and winning performances (because I think it's cool that you put so much effort into that and I like seeing where everyone ranks) and I noticed Edward Norton in American History X dropped almost 50 spots. Why is that?
I still think its a great performance I just feel I put it a little too high originally.
Oh ok. I still can't believe you ranked 400+ performances. That's nuts.
Just for future reference, I'd like to suggest Sharlto Copley for Best Actor 2009 for his tremendous performance in District 9.Predictions:1. Rockwell2. Garfield3. Brosnan4. Mendelsohn5. Chow Yun-Fat
2009 Lead Actor is going to be freaking packed. Just look:Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500)Days of SummerSharlto Copley in District 9Michael Stuhlbarg in A Serious ManJoaquin Phoenix in Two LoversSam Rockwell in MoonViggo Mortensen in The RoadTom Hardy in BronsonBrad Pitt in Inglourious BasterdsMatt Damon in The Informant!Ben Foster in The Messenger
koook: I put Brad Pitt in Supporting for Basterds. It doesn't really have a lead. But if it did, it wouldn't be him.
I... don't really object to that.
