Eric Bana won The Other Boleyn Girl poll
Eric Bana????? We’re all such fanboys.
Jackie, followed closely by Phylliss.
I know Jackie is going to win. Like it’s the typicial GD performance.
Winslet was just amazing. Simple. Real. She should win this poll, not that man!
3. Who cares?
I dont know about anyone else, but I caught Winslet “acting”, and in more than one scene. Her best ones were those where she doesnt speak, and I’m certainly no detractor of hers. I loved parts of her book club scenes, but not all of it. Jmho.
Wilson is good and I would place him third. What do you have against Jackie anyways? I was thrilled for him, after such a long hiatus.
Winslet’s effective silence and simple performance is hard to do. Going around, looking creepy and screaming for a testicle is not hard acting. Jackie was good, but imo Winslet and Wilson were soooooo much better.
1. Kate the Great
My favorite film of 2006
This was one of the (very) few times when I’ve really liked Kate Winslet in a movie. She was excellent and her scenes with Wilson are dynamite. However Jackie steals the movie in my opinion. I’d tie him with Eddie Murphy as my favorite supporting actor performances of that year but Jackie has a slight edge given the subtle, delicate and complicated nature of his character. He has my vote!
This is one of my favorite dramas! While I love Kate’s performance in here, I have to go with Patrick Wilson.
