    Mark Ruffalo hulk smashed the last poll on The Avengers as he was voted Best in Show from that ensemble. 

    We now look at one of the most striking, memorable, overrated films of the last 3 decades with a sexy ensemble: Pulp Fiction. So who was the best??

    Best in Show #2: Mark Wahlberg – I Heart Huckabees
    Best in Show #3: Sandra Bullock – Crash

    Best in Show #5: Jack Lemmon – Glengarry Glen Ross
    Best in Show #6: Amy Adams – American Hustle
    Best in Show #7: Hugh Jackman – Prisoners  
    Best in Show #8: Peter Finch – Network

    I’d have to go with Bruce Willis. He was just so god damn cool. Uma Thurman and Samuel L. very closely follows.

    I think Samuel L. Jackson is more like Razzie-worthy than Oscar-worthy in this movie. All he’s doing in Tarantino films is yelling and calling everyone a “motherfucker” – boring, odd and terribly limited.

    I don’t see how did Travolta got an Oscar nomination in Lead for this. He had not so much screentime and he wasn’t that good either. I was fine with his performance, but he was so much better in movies like “Grease” and “Hairspray”.

    Uma Thurman had a nice cameo (supporting performance) – she totally deserved the Oscar nomination, but the person I liked the best is surprisingly Bruce Willis – shame that he was snubbed by the Academy for his dynamic performance. Willis and Maria de Madeiros were incredibly strong together.

    Definitely Harvey Keitel. He was so effortlessly cool and had some great moments. He deserved to be nominated over Samuel L. Jackson IMO.

    Such a stellar cast with one of the greatest screenplays ever! Everyone is terrific, including Eric Stoltz and Rosanna Arquette.

    It’s almost a tie for me b/wn Willis, Jackson, Travolta and Thurman. I really enjoyed Ving and Harvey as well, but I voted for Thurman.

    The dance, the lame joke, the overdose, bare feet. She’s sublime.

    Love, love, love this movie… One of my all-time favorites. Every performance is perfect. I’ve gotta go with Sam Jackson though. He is FANTASTIC. He was my winner that year, and it stands out as one of his very best performaces. Close second was Uma Thurman.

    What about the man himself?  Quentin Tarantino?  Like in Django, he has his requisite speaking part…

    I voted for Uma.  Just loved her in this!  Don’t be a
