Best Actor 2014: Results

5. Steve Carell in Foxcatcher - Steve Carell unfortunately portrays his character as an obvious psychopath when a subtler approach likely would have been more effective. His performance is not without merit, but even the best elements are hurt due to his work being fundamentally flawed.

Best Scene: John du Pont does a training session while his mother watches.
4. Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything - His film's depiction of Stephen Hawking might be a bit inadequate, but Redmayne's performance never is. He gives an especially remarkable and convincing depiction of the decay caused Hawking's disease.

Best Scene: At dinner with Jane and Jonathan.
3. Bradley Cooper in American Sniper - Like Redmayne his film does leave something to be desired. Bradley Cooper though elevates his material by giving a powerful portrayal of the toll of war on a both on the battlefield and at home.

Best Scene: His first kill.
2. Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game - The film demands that Cumberbatch be a delightful eccentric genius and a tragic suicide. Cumberbatch mends these differing tones by being an endearing hero, and a heartbreaking victim. 

Best Scene: Turing after his chemical castration.
1. Micheal Keaton in Birdman - Good Prediction mcofra7. Michael Keaton easily stood above his competition for me with his great portrayal of a superhero actor proving himself. Whether the allusion is intentional or not, Keaton certainly proves himself here. He guides the film brilliantly with his multifaceted performance that meets every challenge presented to him. He attains greatness with this entertaining and truly inspiring work.

Best Scene: Kinda all of them, but I'll say....Riggan's flight of fancy.

*squawk*

With regards to the question by Anonymous on the previous post, my top 5 changed perceptions for better and worse:

Better:
James Mason
Trevor Howard
Dennis Hopper
Clint Eastwood
Joseph Cotten

Worse:
Sean Penn
Richard Burton
Matt Damon
Jeff Bridges
Spencer Tracy

GetDonaldSutherlandAnOscar said...

My Lead recommendations:
David Oyelowo in Selma
Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler
Joaquin Phoenix in Inherent Vice
Tom Hardy in Locke
Nicholas Cage in Joe
Philip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man
Guy Pearce in The Rover

RatedRStar said...

I am not gonna suggest anyone because I think Louis already has an idea of who to review. Oh and my five actors that have gotten better or worse for me are:

Joaquin Phoenix
Albert Finney
Alan Bates
Anthony Wong
Marlon Brando

luke higham said...

I'm so fucking nervous right now.

Michael McCarthy said...

Lead before supporting? Interesting...

Jake Gyllenhaal-Nightcrawler
Brendan Gleeson-Calvary
Ralph Fiennes-The Grand Budapest Hotel
Joaquin Phoenix-Inherent Vice
Andy Serkis-Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (longshot I know but I absolutely loved this performance so I'm gonna stick by it.)
Tom Hardy-Locke
David Oyelowo-Selma
Philip Seymour Hoffman-A Most Wanted Man
Guy Pearce-The Rover
Matthew McConaughey-Interstellar

These would be my 10, but I trust Louis will review all of the performances he finds most deserving.

luke higham said...

Michael McCarthy: I think it's clear that Louis's too hyped, not to cover lead first. Also, I do think Serkis has a good chance, since, if he had been given his rating & thoughts a week ago, then it would be a certainty, that he would only do ten.

GM said...

Lee Kang-sheng, Stray Dogs
GĂ©rard Depardieu, Welcome to New York

RatedRStar said...

Why are you nervous Luke =)?

RatedRStar said...

GM I am happy to hear you liked Lee Kang Sheng in Stray Dogs but that would be 2013.

luke higham said...

RatedRStar: You know what I mean, I've said it time and time again, that ten still wouldn't justify the quality of the year, although, it wouldn't have bothered me if the Nominees were better as a whole.

Also, no offence, but if you won the prediction, I know for a fact, you would've requested Chang Chen in Brotherhood of Blades, which I would rather see for the bonus rounds.

GM said...

@RatedRStar Isn't it questionable? I mean, the company credits say it was distributed in theaters in 2014.

luke higham said...

It is 2014, it had it's first release date on the 21st of February in Taiwan.

Matt Mustin said...

GUY PEARCE IN THE ROVER
Ralph Fiennes in The Grand Budapest Hotel
Brendan Gleeson in Calvary
Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler
David Oyelowo in Selma
Matthew McConaughey in Interstellar
Joaquin Phoenix in Inherent Vice

Matt Mustin said...

Oh, and Philip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man

mcofra7 said...

Bonus round: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Mysterious Skin (at least for now)

Michael Patison said...

No real suggestions as I feel Louis probably already knows who he's going to review/everybody's already mentioned everybody I would.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

OH SNAP TWO HORSE RACE

Louis Morgan said...

Robert:

Eh forget that earlier review now I hate Redmayne.

Anyway I'm sure the Batman voice in Keaton head is saying "Come on Keaton. Are you going to let that freckle faced f_cker steal your glory?"

Keaton's next move should be to send all academy voters The Theory of Everything, but with Redmayne's scenes from the Good Shepherd spliced in.

luke higham said...

Louis: When are the lineups posted.
