    Toni Collette was voted Best in Show on our last poll regarding ‘Little Miss Sunshine’, beating out Abigail Breslin and Steve Carell by just 2 votes. Now, that’s an ensemble. 

    For our 10th poll, we’ll take a look at one of my favorite films of all time, ‘Boogie Nights’, which take a look at the golden age of Pornography in the San Frenando valley. So…who’s the best in show???

    you have 2 days.

    Burt Reynolds does some of his best work (maybe his very best?), and Mark Wahlberg is used in just the right way. However, while some of my choices in these polls have been for the less heralded performances, I have to go with Moore on this one. She captures my attention every time she’s comes on screen. The bits with her in the custody battle, and then her scene with Heather Graham? Heartbreaking.

    I have to think about it before I cast a vote. That cast is so good.

    Toughie! So many good performaces… What a cast. I’m
    going to go with Mark Wahlberg. He was perfect for this film, and it really was a breakout role. Moore, PSH, and Reynolds are all terrific, but I’m gonna give it to Wahlberg for taking on this role and PTA getting a great a perf from him that showed that he was more than Marky Mark.

    Note to the guy who posts these polls: might you consider giving more days before you close the polls and post results? I haven´t had time to even discover more than half of these (and I log in daily at GD), and I assume many people might miss them as well (unless the votes rally up to like 20 or so). #hatedmissingthelittlemisssunshinepoll.

    Regarding Boggie Nights: I have not watched the film in ages, but I remember not thinking of any of the many familiar faces as standouts, even Moore who I adore more than words can express haha. I do however remember being very surprised by Wahlberg.

    Burt Reynolds, followed by Julianne Moore.

    Excellent cast. They all DELIVER.

    lol Emmys2011: The 2 days limit just just an incentive for people to vote more (hopefully) so we can see the results quicker. Also, we can get through a lot more films. I tried leaving the poll on for about 5 days for AOC, it was pretty much forgotten around day 2, and it had about the same number of votes as the other polls. You said you log in every day right? Just be sure to stop by the movies thread cuz these are always sprinkled out. I’m glad you made it for this poll.  

    Errgh I voted for Moore but now I’m wishing I voted for Wahlberg. He really surprised me and this was actually the very first Mark Wahlberg film I saw. Julianne Moore was of course amazing and held such a screen presence.

    3. Burt Reynolds

    One of my favorite movies ever. Not a single bad performance to be found. Moore is best in show followed by PSH, Reynolds and Wahlberg. Major shout outs to Cheadle, Macy and Joanna Gleason in her one scene as Dirk’s mother. Brilliant film.

    Julianne Moore, easily. Followed by William H. Macy and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Mark Wahlberg was a fine lead, but like Jamie Foxx in “Django Unchained” or Christian Bale in “American Hustle”, he was outshined by every single cast member.

    Burt Reynolds wasn’t really memorable for me.

    I’m happy for this. I find it weird that Collette had like 10 standout mentions and 13 votes and Carell had like 2 positive and 5 negative mentions and he had almost the same amount of votes – I mean how the hell? So all the Carell fans refused to comment or what? Maybe you should consider the write-in voting.

    By the way thank you for doing this! It’s a wonderful idea and awesome hosting!

    Everyone was good here, but this was Julianne Moore’s best to me, so her.
