    Jack Lemmon was the winner in our last poll about ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’

    This needs some serious polling. I know this film’s humor goes over a lot of people’s heads, especially most here in Gold Derby but one thing everyone agrees is that the performances is are top-notch. So…who’s the best in show??

    lol I can’t wait for the hatefest. 

    you have 2 days!

    Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper (even if I dislike him) were the standouts with Amy Adams being a strong third. I liked Jeremy Renner as well. I think Christian Bale was Razzie-worthy and the Robert De Niro cameo had no point.

    Lawrence, C.K., and Bale. I also loved De Niro’s cameo. But I voted for Lawrence because she made me laugh the most in such a joyless movie.

    If Jeremey Renners wins this because his character has “heart” I’m going to scream. It’s pretty clear that the women rule this film:

    I mean…

    Is this even a competition? Jennifer Lawrence is the only reason to watch the movie.

    Jennifer Lawrence was great but so hammy in her first scene. I’m going with Amy.

    Back to topic of the main 5:

    Adams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSctq8af3zY

    Lawrence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB3SPKi8NAE

    Cooper
    Bale
    Renner
     

    and I know it’s all subjective (if I had a nickel for everytime…), but I seriously don’t know how any one can call this film joyless. Like, it doesn’t have the OMGimportance and OMGgravit(y)as of some other films of that season, and I don’t think those are necessarily the standards of great films, but it’s the most joyous time I’ve had in a theater in a long time.  Acting is superb all around, direction is slick, screenplay is whipcrack smart, and everything just worked so well. Like, what more could you want?

    I think you just have to refresh. The polls tend to not update sometimes.

    It’s just funny, because people tend to call this a great ensembe movie. Jennifer Lawrence was my favorite in the movie, but even she didn’t make my Supporting Actress lineup, she was around 8th-9th, so I guess I wasn’t a fan of this ensemble at all.

    Adams. She was terrific, one of her best IMHO. The scene of her telling Bale’s character that she’s going to pretend to love Cooper’s character, and maybe she really does love him, is some of her finest work.
