These are my Best Actor nominees for 2013. Feel free to vote for who your pick would be.March 25, 2016 at 4:42 am #601495
This is the one Leonardo should have won for. He is a force of nature in the film.March 25, 2016 at 8:13 am #601526
YES, Leo had his career best performance in The Wolf of Wall Street. Shame he didn’t win for this roleMarch 25, 2016 at 8:27 am #601532
Hanks would rank #2 for me.March 28, 2016 at 3:48 am #601966
McConaughey’s performance in Dallas Buyers Club is flawless and powerful. His breakdown in the car, his relationship to Jared Leto’s character, his inability to accept help… Dern is great in Nebraska, very subtle. I do not think that Wolf of Wallstreet is DiCaprio’s best.

Ejiofor should have won this. Phoenix for Her could replace Bale, Dern, and McConaughey.March 28, 2016 at 5:37 am #601977
5. BaleMarch 28, 2016 at 9:39 am #602001
EjioforMarch 28, 2016 at 10:39 am #602013
1. Chiwetel Ejiofor
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
3. Matthew McConaughey
4. Christian Bale
5. Bruce DernMarch 28, 2016 at 11:15 am #602018
Ejiofor and McConaughey are so close for me, that I would have been fine with either winning. I think I would have preferred Ejiofor to have won if only because it would have given him more attention and more interesting roles. McConaughey has no trouble getting work in comparison, and Ejiofor is really one of the best actors working today. Both were deserving though, and I’m actually glad McConaughey has his Oscar.March 28, 2016 at 1:22 pm #602045
I choose Leo, but I’m happy McConaughey end up winning. Those 2 were by far the best options for me.March 28, 2016 at 8:06 pm #602113
Having rewatch 12 Years a Slave yesterday, I realize how amazing Ejiofor was in the film. He gives a masterful subtle and controlled performance that shines above all of his castmates. Still I’d put him 3rd behind Leo and McConaughey. That aside, I never ever understand the hype behing Lupita’s oscar winning performance. She was average in this, even Sarah Paulson in her limited screentime, gave a better performance in this filmMarch 28, 2016 at 8:18 pm #602115
Ejiofor or DiCaprio should have won but McConaughey got that ass kissing attention just because he figured out the way to win an Oscar. Then the media all of sudden considered him this amazing actor and the public ate. It. The. Fuck. Up. The same thing is occurring with Bradley Cooper’s dull motherfuckin ass.March 29, 2016 at 4:16 pm #602295

Was Lupita really in that many more scenes than Paulson? I thought their screentime was quite even. That being said, I thought Ejiofor was overshadowed by Lupita, Paulson and Fassbender- I would’ve given the film a 2nd Supporting Actress nomination, and given Fassbender the win too.
I would’ve given Hanks the win, with Ejiofor 2nd. I fail to see how DiCaprio’s performance is being cited as “the best of his career”. I could name 10 of his performances that are better (of course this is subjective).March 29, 2016 at 7:54 pm #602331
I will never ever understand the hype behind Lupita’s Oscar winning performance.
She played a victim. Actresses win Oscars for playing them all the time. A role can win you the award over the performance. Her performance is fine.
