    Farnsworth

    My line-up would be Crowe, Everett, Farnsworth, Fiennes and Spacey.

    Haven’t seen Crowe or Washington (can’t believe I still haven’t seen The Insider) but I adore Farnsworth’s performance in The Straight Story. I’m pleasantly surprised by the support for him on this thread so far actually. Unfortunately he died horribly less than a year after his nomination, by shooting himself after battling with prostate cancer.

    Richard died the same way he did in Misery with a shotgun wound.

    Wow. That was extremely tasteless.

    All of the nominees are very good this year, but Richard Farnsworth stands out. I loved his work.
    Crowe is immersed and not “Crowish”; Denzel is Denzel, Penn is Penn and Spacey is irreverent Spacey.

    Seems as if Bruce Willis just cant buy a break. He’s understated and convincing in The Sixth Sense.
    Nothing unworthy in Matt Damon’s Ripley either. I would have loved seeing someone from The Matrix in the mix somewhere.
    Fat chance I suppose.

    Brad Pitt in Fight Club is a tour de force performance that should have won every award under the sun.

    But since he’s not listed, I am going with Spacey.

    I haven’t seen Farnsworth, but if he’s as great as everyone has always said, I’d probably go with him. I’ll certainly still include him in my nominees, and for now, I’ll say Spacey.

    Kevin Spacey, American Beauty
    Richard Farnsworth, The Straight Story
