Alternate Best Actor 2000: Results

5. George Clooney in O Brother Where Art Thou?- Clooney gives a fun and endearing performance, which is fun to follow through this adventure.

Best Scene: The boys are about to be hanged.
4. Chow Yun-Fat in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon- Yun-Fat succeeds well in a role tailored made for his particular screen presence.

Best Scene: His last scene.
3. Eric Bana in Chopper- Bana is a lot of fun with a bonkers performance that somehow makes his character believable.

Best Scene: Chopper kills the Turk.
2. Christian Bale in American Psycho- Bale performance gives a comedic phony performance that actually suits his character far better then if he played it straight.

Best Scene: Bateman kills Paul Allen.
1. Guy Pearce in Memento- Good Prediction Koook160. This was an easy choice for me. Guy Pearce gives a great performance brilliantly realizing his character's most unusual disability while flawlessly taking his character down a many differing paths, and never becoming dull for a moment even though his character does repeat himself often.

Best Scene: Leonard confronts John G. or at least he thinks he does.

The five I'd do for 2000 Supporting:

Joe Pantoliano in Memento
Michael Douglas in Traffic
Billy Crudup in Almost Famous
Liev Schreiber in Hamlet
Jeffrey Jones in Shaft

I'd also be curious to see your review of Brad Pitt in Snatch, if nothing else it was definitely an interesting performance.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Uh, what are you guys smoking with Leto? He's so obviously lead that it hurts.

Matt Mustin said...

koook: I was thinking the same thing!

Michael McCarthy said...

I know, but he didn't make it in for the actual lead reviews and we wanna see what Louis thinks.

Joaquin Phoenix in Quills

Louis Morgan said...

Off the topic of 2000 I saw Twelve Years a Slave, and hopefully it will stay the best picture frontrunner as it would be a very deserving winner.

RatedRStar said...

lets hope that Irish German actor that's in it gets in this year =D.

Louis Morgan said...

Yes indeed.

RatedRStar said...

if not then expect one huge rant =D bigger then the one we ll see when 1946 comes around lol.

Anonymous said...

Louis who or what would you like to see get in this year, like your personal favorites, since Twelve seems to be one of them.

Matt Mustin said...

Would you say Ejifor and Fassbender are deserving of the praise they've been receiving?

Louis Morgan said...

Anonymous: I still need to see a lot more on the whole but pretty much anything for Twelve Years is a good thing.

Matt Mustin: Most certainly yes.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I just realized I wrote Jeffrey Jones instead of Jeffrey Wright. What was I smoking?

Louis Morgan said...

If Jones was in his role that would have been something.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

It would have been... different, that's for sure.
