Since Gandolfini really should be considered Lead...I'd say the following:

Larson - The Hunt
Edgerton - The Great Gatsby
Goode - Stoker
Foster - Ain't Them Bodies Saints
Franco - Spring Breakers

Matt Mustin said...

Matthew McConaghuey in Mud
James Franco in Spring Breakers
Tom Hanks in Saving Mr. Banks
Sam Rockwell in The Way Way Back
Jeremy Renner in American Hustle

Matt Mustin said...

Oh, and if you feel like it, Danny McBride in This Is The End.

Michael Patison said...

Some people I'd give at least a 4.5 to consider:
Matthew McConaughey in Mud
James Gandolfini in Enough Said
Matthew McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall Street
Colin Farrell in Saving Mr. Banks

I won't comment on others I haven't seen.

Kevin said...

Colin Farrell - Saving Mr Banks
Matthew McConaghuey - Mud
James Franco - Spring Breakers
Jeremy Renner - American Hustle
James Gandolfini - Enough Said
Either Casey Affleck or Woody Harrelson - Out of the Furnace

And of course Sharlto freaking Copley playing a psychopath in Elysium.

Kevin said...

Oh and Louis, could you consider doing more than 5 reviews for Alternate Best Actor, since there are so many great leading performances this year and it will be a shame if some of them were left out?

luke higham said...

Kevin: I'm hoping Louis does a short summary similar to some of his alternative supporting years.

bondfan said...

Colin Farrell- Saving Mr. Banks
David Oyelowo- The Butler

That's all I got. Supporting Actor was really weak this year.

Psifonian said...

Woody Harrelson, Out of the Furnace
Sharlto Copley, Elysium
James Gandolfini, Enough Said
Ben Foster, Kill Your Darlings/Lone Survivor/Ain't Them Bodies Saints
Vithaya Pansringarm, Only God Forgives

And a special request not to do Franco. :)

Matt Mustin said...

Psifonian: I want to see a Franco review above all else. Not because I think it's a great performance (I haven't seen it) but because it's so talked about, I want to see what Louis thinks.

luke higham said...

Louis: what is your rating & thoughts on Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park.

RatedRStar said...

Rant Time.

I thought Sharlto Copley was terrible in Elysium, in fact everything was terrible, Elysium is District 9 but with no humour or heart or passion or energy whatsoever, oh and Jodie Foster, Fuck you, Sharlto also doesnt deserve to have Freaking in his name, he is a one hit wonder at this minute in time (District 9), you say Ian Freaking McKellen, or Patrick freaking Stewart, or someone that is actually really cool and badass.

mcofra7 said...

Would you consider Ryan Gosling to be supporting for The Place Beyond the Pines? And what about Jake Gyllenhaal for Prisoners?

Louis Morgan said...

Luke: I'd give him a four. Jeff Goldblum does the sarcastic cynic very well in that film, even if his reprises were less successful.

mcofra7: Gosling's right on the border but I think I'd consider him lead. Gyllenhaal is definitely lead.

Also Louis, will Lead Actor 2013 be put on hold until Nebraska comes out on DVD? Or will you find some alternate way of seeing it?

Michael McCarthy said...

Out of the performances I've seen:

Chris Cooper-August: Osage County
Sam Rockwell-The Way, Way Back
Colin Farrell-Saving Mr. Banks
Bobby Cannavale-Blue Jasmine
James Franco-Spring Breakers (I could see people going either way on this one, I personally thought he was very realistic and quite effective for the kind of film it was.)

Others I liked:

Steve Carell-The Way, Way Back
Sharlto Copley-Elysium
Matthew McConaughey-The Wolf of Wall Street
Kyle Chandler-The Wolf of Wall Street
Paul Giamatti-Saving Mr. Banks
Tom Hanks-Saving Mr. Banks
John Goodman-Inside Llewyn Davis
Jeremy Renner-American Hustle
Robert De Niro-American Hustle
Donald Sutherland-Catching Fire
Philip Seymour Hoffman-Catching Fire
Zachary Quinto-Star Trek Into Darkness
Benedict Cumberbatch-Star Trek Into Darkness
James Gandolfini-Enough Said (Despite what everyone says I still think he's supporting)
Josh Gad-Frozen (Because yes.)
The cast of This Is the End :P

Haven't seen Mud or Lone Survivor, but I like both McConaughey and Foster so I'd welcome reviews for them as well.

Matt Mustin said...

Michael: You don't think Quinto is lead in Star Trek Into Darkness?

Matt Mustin said...

Also, the only way someone could even possibly consider Gyllenhaal as supporting in Prisoners simply hasn't seen it. He is 110% lead.

Michael Patison said...

I agree with you on Gandolfini, other Michael. While he does have enough screentime to be considered a lead, perhaps, but the movie is really all about Louis-Dreyfus, not him. I mean, if he's lead then the case could even be made that Toni Colltte is too, and that's just not the case.

Michael McCarthy said...

Matt: He's on the border, since he doesn't seem to be the focus in any of the scenes until after *SPOILER* Kirk dies, whereas in the first one it was clear from the beginning that the story was just as much about him as it was about Kirk. Now that I think about it he probably leans towards lead, it just wasn't as obvious in my mind I was writing that last comment.

Michael McCarthy said...

MP: Yeah there wasn't a single scene with Gandolfini that wasn't from Louis-Dreyfus's point of view I don't think.

mcofra7 said...

Dane DeHaan- Place Beyond the Pines/ Kill Your Darlings

Michael Patison said...

As for Franco, I thought he was very entertaining and the film's best quality, but nothing more. It's pure ACTING and it either works for you or it doesn't. I personally thought his "all my shit" scene was terrific.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Please don't waste a slot on Copley. His scenery chewing made me like Elysium even less than I was already feeling.

Matt Mustin said...

Odd, I thought Copley was far and away the most entertaining part of that film.
