I actually have no clue about how will the second lineup end up like lol

RatedRStar said...

Louis can I ask something, a little nitpick that you could change, is that on the official Oscar lineups, there are just a few performances that are marked wrong because of recent stuff.
Max Von Sydow received his only nomination even though he now has 2, as well as Stallone and Bruce Dern, just a minor mitpick hope you don't mind lol.

Luke:

I should note that I created this line up solely based on who received the most votes in addition to the two already guaranteed spots from the winning requests. The votes being taken as #1, 3 points, #2, 2 points, and #3, 1 point.

Attah - 4.5(Attah is very good in his early scene giving a charismatic performance while being just an imaginative young boy. He sets up well what is to be lost, without going overboard in making Agu just a likable boy. After the tragedy Attah is appropriately moving in portraying the emotional distress in Agu before he finds the commandant. Attah is quite effective in portraying, mostly through reactions, Agu's being drawn into accepting all words from the commandant as truth. He is especially strong in the sequence where he must complete his baptism by blood, by conveying the complexities of the moment. I will say the film's shortcomings unfortunately even hinder his performance somewhat. The abuse of the commandant is too much of an afterthought leaving Attah just to portray as though he's just upset in general. There needed to be more time there. However Attah continues to creating a blind state in the child, by quite frankly showing a lack of understanding. When he murders people it seems very random, and Attah shows how Agu's actions almost become instinctual due to the brainwashing by the commandant. Now the film's approach though becomes somewhat unwieldy in portraying Agu finally falling out of the grip of the commandant. A few deaths are said to be important but feel arbitrary since we really were not given time with these characters in order for Attah to develop any real relationship. In turn Attah can only do so much, and the turn around moment against the commandant just does not have the impact one would expect. Attah though does end well with his final moving speech as we see the burden of his loss of innocence, as the weight of his life as a soldier is tragically a part of him now. The first and last frames of his performances are striking as Attah seems to go from just a boy to guilt ridden man. I only wish the film had allowed for a more concise depiction of the entire transformation.)

Hanks - 4.5(I have never been one to subscribe to the idea of Hanks as the modern day James Stewart, however I can support that view with this performance. Hanks gives a performance that Stewart might have given if it had been made as a contemporary film. Hanks is just perfectly on point in giving the part the needed passion and dignity yet without coming off as sanctimonious. Hanks gives the right humanity to the part as the vulnerabilities of Donovan are always well shown by Hanks. Past all that even though Hanks just is charming in just the right way here. His chemistry with Mark Rylance is great as they find a certain warmth while still leaving a definite divide. Hanks brings out the low key humor from the script out flawlessly, never forcing his hand in this regard. I particularly love when he tells the CIA agent to stop nodding while he was trying to explain his positions in regards to Rylance's Abel. This is a right proper old fashioned leading turn by him.)

Louis Morgan said...

Dano & Cusack - 4.5(The two, despite not really looking alike, are quite remarkable in the way that honestly feel like they are playing the same man just in two phases of his life. Dano's work is terrific in giving us Wilson at the "prime" of his life. He's so good in the scenes where he is creating music as you really get an idea of the genius through Dano's very specific way of playing these moments. There's something so organic about the way he makes the songs and most important there is this sense of joy as he works. Dano though nicely plants the seeds of the fall of Wilson, by suggesting that within his certain shyness there is something very troubling. He does well to allude to Cusack's performance as he begins to develop Wilson's mental problems, in quite the effective fashion. Cusack on the other hand is technically the less fluid work. His Wilson does not gradually change. He's a constant as we view him through the perspective of another, Elizabeth Banks's character. Cusack is also very effective though as he shows the results of the seeds planted by Dano. He's even more detached, and Cusack frankly shows him as somewhat broken by his life experiences which is only being made worse by his 24 hour doctor. Cusack is affecting by portraying Brian as with almost nowhere to go, as when he's being abused he seems like almost nothing. There is yet just glimpse of that old spark though that he finds in some of his moments with Banks that are quite wonderful as the two have splendid chemistry. His final transition is technically jumped over, since we meet him after he's gotten away form his abuser. Cusack does not present him as a new man, he's still very much damaged from the past, yet some of his life has returned to him)

Russell - 4.5(Russell for much of the film is terrific at just being the steadfast leader he should be. He delivers the right unquestionable gravitas in the Sheriff's interactions, where he obviously always deals with things in a very specific, and intelligent fashion. Russell realizes this intelligence well and is particularly good in the early sequence where he quietly breaks down a drifter's story. When the men go on the mission Russell is good as being basically the backbone of the unit as he carries the needed confidence, yet always maintains the right empathetic qualities when interacting with the other men. His best scenes come after the capture though and Russell is indeed fantastic in giving the needed gravity to the "scene". That could have just been a grotesque moment but Russell absolutely grounds it through his harrowing portrayal of the disgust, sadness and anger of the moment.)

Louis Morgan said...

Courtenay - 5(I know some have placed him supporting since the film is securely from the point of view of Charlotte Rampling's Kate. I can't agree with that because this is a two character piece. There are other people in it but they are wholly meaningless. The only people that matter are Courtenay's Geoff, his wife Kate, and the metaphorical ghost of his deceased girlfriend Katya. Courtenay's performance is very interesting in that he almost has to act in the margins since we never see it from Geoff's point of view. Courtenay is appropriately cold in moments of his interactions with Rampling when he speaks of Katja. Courtenay though importantly suggests a very real sadness in Geoff as though he is reliving the memories of that loss so many years before. On the other hand he still has the needed chemistry with Rampling in certain moments that suggest their love of the past 45 years. Courtenay though is properly off-putting in the way he strangles the warmth Geoff has to offer at times. Though in a cursory glance it seems just as though he's being cold Courtenay actually is able to convey a certain struggle in Geoff as he trying to come to terms with his past loss, which is unfortunately made all the more complicated due to his relationship with his wife. The pivotal moment is the anniversary dinner though as Courtenay appears to reveal quite honestly his love to Kate without exception as though he's been able to settle his mind and accept who has become the love of his life. Of course this is all my interpretation but that's what I love about Courtenay's performance. The nature of his character forces him into the background yet his work never feels vague, as he portrays all that Geoff's going through even if he is never given the exact focus)

Might as well ask about Edgerton in Depp's review.

Don't worry I'll fix it in regards to Sheen the same goes to RatedRStar's concern.

tahmeed:

Though I loved most of the cast of The Hateful Eight, it does not best The Hill or several other ensembles such as Alien. Those two films don't have a single bad performance and several great ones. The Hateful Eight has Tatum, who's not terrible but definitely a step down from the rest of the cast, and though I did not mention her ever, Zoe Bell who's very awkward even with the little she had to do. Now that sounds like nitpicking, and it is, but we're talking about the best of the best here.

Luke Higham said...

Louis: Thanks for giving Extended Thoughts and a 5 for Courtenay, Hooray. :)

L Rime said...

As much as I like Hardy in Legend(although I think his performance in Mad Max is better), I think I might go with Segel on this one. When I look at that group, the only one I hadn't actually forgotten about at any point during this year was Segel.

Robert MacFarlane said...

I'm glad you loved Courtenay.

Calvin Law said...

Dammit knew I should've voted for Courtenay. Not that I'll suddenly change my rating to a 5 for him, just irks me whenever a 5 performance doesn't get a review slot. Oh well, here's hoping that all the performances here get 4.5's or 5's.

Calvin Law said...

I would not mind Segel or Bateman taking the overall as it's always pretty cool to see a complete 'dark horse' actor, so to speak, get the win.

Luke Higham said...

Calvin: They will.

In hindsight, I'm glad Louis didn't accept my request for Attah, as I would've been hugely disappointed.

Calvin Law said...

Luke: Attah is great and would've loved to see him get a 5 but oh well.

I'm also hoping Eisenberg, and Reynolds, potentially get bumped up from a 4.5 and 4, respectively, as I feel their work in their respective films is underrated in how much it enhances the power of Segel and Mendelsohn's performances.

Luke Higham said...

Louis: What are your top ten songs from Disney Animated Features.

Calvin: Well, I'm happy as hell that five of my favourite actors are being reviewed. :) (Hardy, Fassbender, Foster, McKellen and Mendelsohn)

In regards to Child Actors, I'm now praying for Tremblay, as I hope his performance becomes only the 4th to receive a five from Louis.

Alex Marqués said...

Luke: I absolutely love Foster but do you think The Program is on par with The Messenger and 3:10 to Yuma in terms of his performance? (I still haven't seen it)

Luke Higham said...

Alex: I think it's his best Lead performance to date, though overall, The Program's #4. I could see him getting a five, due to Louis' initial thoughts and from his point of view, he rose well above the average film he was in.

Alex Marqués said...

Wow, I guess I will watch it eventually then. Thank you for the response! ;)

Anonymous said...

Louis: What are your thoughts on Alastair Sim, Peter Sellers, Stanley Holloway and Jack Hawkins as actors?

Luke Higham said...

The only reason, I'm not supporting a Hardy win is due to having won for The Revenant.

GM said...

I'm with L Rime, Hardy is hilarious in Legend, but Mad Max was his best performance in 2015 imo, he might be my winner for best actor, just need to watch Bateman and Segel.

Robert MacFarlane said...

I really, REALLY don't want DiCaprio to be the winner.

Michael McCarthy said...

But guys. Jason Segel.

Robert: Don't worry, DiCaprio won't win.

RatedRStar said...

Luke: I dont mind Hardy winning twice really, its Hardy after all, oh btw Luke and Michael Patison, that picture of Mendelsohn kinda looks like Manuel Pelegrini lol =D.

Louis: I saw your thoughts on Ship Of Fools, I personally would give Dunn a 1, I kinda believe that this character would be so arrogant, to say that all of these people are fools, how are Oskar Werner and Simone Signorets characters fools in anyway eh Dunn?, two people who are in pain and in love, ye they are really fools??????

Robert: I think you ll be happy when all this 2015 stuff is over lol.

Luke Higham said...

RatedRStar: I don't mind him winning twice, as of this moment, he's my favourite actor in the world right now, but I would like Louis to spread the wealth abit.

COME ON LEICESTER. :)

RatedRStar: I have noticed that in your 1947-1954 bonus reviews spreadsheet, you have Massey in The Fountainhead for the 1949 supporting review. I think that Louis will hate The Fountainhead.

Robert MacFarlane said...

Yep, get to look forward to an X-Men movie where Oscar Isaac plays Ivan Ooze and bellows his lines for a paycheck while Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender barely give a shit for a paycheck and James McAvoy has to carry the movie on his goddamn back.

Sim - (I really have not seen a great deal of Sim, only about five performances. He was good to great in all of them, and had unique presence to call his own. He seemed quite capable of finding such a balance of comedy with pathos, and was quite able to be so incisive in such an effortless fashion. I look forward to more of him, but so far he can do no wrong)

Sellers - (Sellers even when he was not giving his best work usually could be enjoyable, if he was giving his best work though he could be downright hilarious. He had such impeccable comedic timing, and was one of the great comic actors to be sure. He certainly had range as well though and knew how twist his humor into almost any style that it could easily support dramatic work.)

Holloway - (Have not seen much of him really but he was hilarious in The Lavender Hill Mob while being the best part of My Fair Lady. I do love the fact that he could be the refined gentleman sort in one then pure cockney in the other)

Hawkins - (Hawkins seemed to be in that state Domhnall Gleeson is in now in that even though he's not the best part of his films, he's always a good part of them. I think every British epic was required to have him actually which explains his playing a Swedish Missionary in Zulu. He was consistently good though and knew how to find an actual variation in his often similair roles)

Robert:

I think they actually updated Apocalypse's look to no longer be Ivan Ooze, though it seems like Isaac is going back to his reverse Pacino roots (which I hear is a bad thing). And hey you're telling me you don't love the fact that McAvoy keeps giving it his all? The trailer suggests that this one will be no different in that regard, though Lawrence looks like she's really phoning it in at this point.

Yes, Isaac's reverse Pacino roots are... not good. Never watch Sucker Punch, no matter what defense you've heard of it from Snyder apologists. Only watch Robin Hood drunk. Also, I also am excited for McAvoy again.

RatedRStar: For 1968 Lead, I would suggest Lancaster in The Swimmer.

RatedRStar said...

Of course I will happily take suggestions and mark them down and decide later before the bonus rounds start who ill suggest.

I really need help with 1965 lead there has to be plenty of potential nominees, since I have done 1965 supporting but only have the requested performance and Orson Welles on the list for lead so far, same with 1967 I only have 2 for lead and none for supporting at all.

Anonymous said...

RatedRStar: Let's see. For 1965 Lead, I would suggest Richard Widmark in The Bedford Incident and Gregory Peck in Mirage.

Anonymous said...

RatedRStar: Another suggestion for 1965 Lead is John Wayne in Harm's Way. Hope you're marking the former two I suggested.

GM said...

RatedRStar, consider Von Sydow in The Passion of Anna, he was better here than in Shame.

Yep marked but not final of course.

Good call on Edward Woodward, The Wicker Man is awesome. Awesome and disturbing. I wish Louis reviewed sir Christopher Lee's performance in that movie.

Anonymous said...

RatedRStar: I don't know if you've seen my suggestions for some years such as 1935, 1936, 1937, 1940, 1945 and 1954. They're on Del Toro and Brolin's review.

Anonymous: I have saved them as links so I can see them at somepoint.

Luke: Have you seen Witchfinder? I wonder what your thoughts on it are as I see that as the kind of film Mark Kermode would stand up and defend.

Luke Higham said...

RatedRStar: I saw it 2-3 years ago, and from what I remember, Price was quite chilling, though I would've liked it, if the film was a bit longer than it was.

Some have said it's his very best performance and for me, that should be enough to warrant a place on the '68 lineup.

Come to think of it, I might switch Reed for Price, as I feel Louis would be very interested in seeing The Devils.
