This is a very interesting and very tricky year, I think it will be either Gian Maria or Jean Louis that wins. I have only seen Finney and he was good but not great.

1)Jean Louis Trintignant
2)Gian Maria Volonte
3)Peter Boyle
4)Alejandro Jodorowsky
5)Albert Finney

Very tricky one to predict... Seen only Boyle (who was teriffic but as I've said may have a disadvantage of a reduced screen-time) and Trintignant (who actually failed to impress me in this performance). I guess I'll go with Volonte:

1.Volonte
2.Boyle
3.Finney
4.Jodorowsky
5.Trintignant

I'm fairly confident this is Volonte's win. As for the other four... total crapshoot.

Random question Louis, but what did you think of the final episodes of Breaking Bad? I personally thought they were amazing and Cranston and Paul have never been better.

Louis Morgan said...

I thought they were masterful.

Michael McCarthy said...

My only problem with the last episode was that most of the major characters aside from Walt didn't get very much screen time. Other than that I absolutely loved it. And the episode Ozymandias was goddamn perfect.

Speaking of Breaking Bad, did everybody else think Ozymandias was easily the best episode of the whole series. It seems like everybody does (I do), but oftentimes people here have opinions that differ, sometimes greatly, from the mainstream so I thought I'd ask.

Matt Mustin said...

Michael: I love almost all the episodes, but Ozymandias was in a different category altogether. It was, I think, the most perfect hour of television I've ever seen.
