Best Actor 2013: Results

5. Christian Bale in American Hustle- Although the film consistently backhands him Bale tries hard to try to make the film's plot work. I won't say he succeeds but I appreciate the effort.

Best Scene: Irving tells Carmine the truth.
4. Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave- A year where this performance stands in fourth place is a truly great year indeed. Ejiofor gives a powerful performance by truthfully portraying every painful phase of his character's horrible predicament.

Best Scene: Solomon finally returns home.
3. Bruce Dern in Nebraska- Bruce Dern gives a interesting portrayal of the result of one man's life in terms of his physical state and a powerful portrayal of his emotional state.

Best Scene: Woody drives through town.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street- Leonardo DiCaprio might give his best performance with his extremely entertaining and very funny depiction of the sinful behavior of one man.

Best Scene: Lemmon Quaaludes 714
1. Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club- Well this year was amazing to say the least and I would not mind if any one of these top four were to take the prize, but if I were to vote I actually would be very tempted to go with Bruce Dern, I would love to see him win. The likely winner though and the one that I will declare as the best of the best goes to Matthew McConaughey's outstanding work in Dallas Buyers Club. It is actually hardest to pick his best scene because every single one of his scenes is remarkable. McConaughey just hits every emotional note of this performance perfectly and gives a truly compelling and believable portrayal of his character's transformation.

Best Scene: Ron comforts Rayon.

 Next Year: 2013 Lead

luke higham said...

Louis: what lead performances from 2013, received only a four from you.

RatedRStar said...

You would have voted for Dern lol wow im surprised.

Michael B Jordan - Fruitvale Station
Joaquin Phoenix - Her
Tom Hanks - Captain Phillips
Oscar Issac - Inside Llewyn Davis
Jake Gllyenhal - Prisoners

I was gonna vote Daniel Bruhl but its a bit fucking pointless now.

luke higham said...

Phoenix
Isaac
Hanks
Redford
Gyllenhaal

luke higham said...

But for this year, I would like Louis to have 8 instead of just 5, considering how brilliant the quality of performances have been this year.

joe burns said...

Yes! I was fearing Dicaprio would win, so much suspense as I went down your post,but I"m so glad McConaughey won! He is amazing in every way!

I also think that Dern"s chances got slimmer after SAG. Even if he wins BAFTA, I don"t think it"ll be enough to really win. From what you"ve said, it"s a quiter performance and those don"t win that often.

Maciej said...

Oscar Isaacs - "Inside Llewyn Davis"
Tom Hanks - "Captain Phillips"
Chris Hemsworth - "Rush"
Daniel Bruhl - "Rush"
Joaquin Phoenix - "Her"

Michael McCarthy said...

I'm predicting-

Joaquin Phoenix-Her
Oscar Isaac-Inside Llewyn Davis
Tom Hanks-Captain Phillips
Jake Gyllenhaal-Prisoners
Robert Redford-All is Lost

I would also like to see a review for Michael B. Jordan in Fruitvale Station.

Michael Patison said...

Jake Gyllenhaal in Prisoners
Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips
Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis
Michael B. Jordan in Fruitvale Station
Robert Redford in All Is Lost

Michael Patison said...

Duh! How could I forget RatedRStar's favorite?
Joaquin Phoenix in Her

Michael McCarthy said...

Other possibilities-

Will Forte-Nebraska
Steve Coogan-Philomena
Jude Law-Side Effects

Michael Patison said...

Steve Coogan should definitely not be taken lightly. I thought he was terrific (though I'd only see Louis giving him a 4)

RatedRStar said...

I have only voted Phoenix simply because of Bruhls spoiler, I still think he is a cunt who I hope never gets another oscar nomination ever.

Michael McCarthy said...

Michael: Agreed, this was by far his most sensitive performance.

Matt Mustin said...

Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips
Jake Gyllenhaal in Prisoners
Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis
Robert Redford in All Is Lost
Joaquin Phoenix in Her

Michael Patison said...

RatedRStar: Did you even see Her? If you have, then I hope you agree he was tremendous and natural and effortless. You should base comments on nominations based on work alone, especially when there have been potentially far worse actors than him in terms of personality and actions (i.e. Robert Blake)

Matt Mustin said...

Michael Patison: Yeah, I don't get his vitriol for Phoenix at all. I mean, yeah he's an asshole, so what? So was Marlon Brando.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

My recommendations

Bradley Cooper in The Place Beyond the Pines (please give him a second shot)
Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis
Jake Gyllenhaal in Prisoners
Joaquin Phoenix in Her
Ethan Hawke in Before Midnight

MRRIPLEY said...

HUGH JACKMAN PRISONERS OR MICHAEL SHANNON THE ICEMAN.

luke higham said...

Michael Patison: Can you predict what ratings, louis may give to:

Phoenix
Isaac
Redford
Hanks
Gyllenhaal
B.Jordan

luke higham said...

Also Louis, said in previous posts, he would be reviewing Hanks, Isaac, Phoenix, Redford & someone else for his 5th spot.

MRRipley: Shannon got a 4.5 & Louis said Jackman's performance was overblown.

Michael Patison said...

I haven't seen Redford or Jordan yet, but I'll do the others:
Gyllenhaal-4.5
Hanks-5 (but a 4.5 is entirely possible)
Isaac-5 (but a 4.5 is possible considering that's what Louis typically gives to people who are terrific in their portrayal of multiple faces of the same emotion)
Phoenix-5

dshultz said...

Oh my glory. 2013 has bumped 1962 off of the top spot. I never thought this would happen, but it's great to see the acting strength that the Oscars have been recognizing the past 3 or so years. I'm very happy McConaughey won. It's not often you feel a man's entire life through a performance, and he really brought it.

Anonymous said...

Would you be equally happy for a win for Ejiofor, Dern, DiCarpio, or McCounaghey?

luke higham said...

Anonymous: I would certainly, although my pick is Ejiofor. He may have the least complex performance out of the top four & would say that Mcconaughey & Dicaprio were better, But his film hit me the hardest.

Dern would be equal with Chiwetel.

Louis Morgan said...

Anonymous: Yes as any one of them would be a deserving win.

dinasztie said...

I'm sad that you didn't go with Dern or DiCaprio even though MM is a worthy choice.

But what a year! I even like Bale, but if they had nominated Hanks instead, this would be a craaaaaazy category.
