Once again, no contest here. Kara Hayward gave an Oscar-worthy leading performance in “Moonrise Kingdom”. She was among my personal nominees next to the winner Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook & The Hunger Games); and nominees Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty); Ann Dowd (Compliance) and Michelle Wiliams (Take This Waltz). I can’t stand that fact that Wallis took all the attention among the young ladies instead of Hayward who was just way more superb.
I agree that Kara Hayward was the best in show, but I’m going to show some appreciation for Jared Gilman. I thought he completely nailed his part. Moonrise Kingdom is still probably my favourite film of all time.
Gilman was great, but I agree that Hayward really shined. She gives a terrific performace.
Yep, Kara Hayward. As for the supporting characters, I thought Edward Norton was the best, even though it was Bruce Willis who got the most attention (i think he got a Indie Spirit nod).
I went with Bruce because he really never impressed me in the past but he was really really good in this and this was a great year for him with Looper also coming out later that year. Tilda was excellent in her small role and Murray and Norton were noteworthy as well. The kids were great too and I love Bob Balaban as the narrator too
Bruce Willis next to his action icon figure; is a seriously great actor. My first shock on this topic was this summer, when I’ve seen him in “Pulp Fiction” – he was way better than Samuel “Motherfuckin’ L. Jackson who cursed and screamed a lot, but had no real impact on me. Bruce’s performance in Tarantino’s classic was Oscar-worthy indeed. And I really liked him in “Moonrise Kingdom” as well (he finished 6th on my Supporting Actor list). Of course, Kara is the best, but Bruce was awesome as well!
I have never been a fan of Bruce Willis. Even though he was good in Pulp Fiction, the only supporting man from that movie who deserved any attention was Harvey Keitel. He was alright here, but I still thought he felt a little forced. Norton may be a bit of a jerk, but he is a seriously great actor. He was absolutely wonderful here, and he should’ve gotten in. I felt like the kids were good, but both Hayward and Gilman were equal, so I couldn’t vote for either one of them, because they are almost symbiotic. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand were great, but they needed more screentime
From these options I’d rank it:
