Anne. But this is probably Jackman’s best performance ever. I also really enjoyed Redmayne and Barks. I nominated all four for personal awards.January 16, 2015 at 10:11 am #173909
My biggest problem with Anne (including her win) is while she delivers the goods on that one key scene/song, everything leading up to this is OK at best, but not (to these eyes) anything special.
Jackman has a harder part and never waries from his complete conviction. I have plenty of problems with the film (and some of the casting) but he is very good.January 16, 2015 at 11:26 am #173910
Samantha Barks was the most inoffensive.January 16, 2015 at 12:56 pm #173911
Anne, then Hugh. But really everybody other than Russell Crowe was fantastic.January 16, 2015 at 5:42 pm #173912
Can we do a worst in show just so we can get a unanimous win by Crowe? HahaJanuary 16, 2015 at 6:07 pm #173913
Yeah, Crowe is just terrible in this (and in everything, really….).

Very hard choice between Jackman and Hathaway but I went with Hathaway. Redmayne, Coen, Carter, and Tviet were also amazing.January 17, 2015 at 3:36 am #173915

I thought Redmayne and Seyfried were worse, actually. Redmayne has a better voice, sure, but he was really forcing it and was even more one-note than Crowe. Seyfried sounded like a chipmunk with added vibrato effects.January 17, 2015 at 4:30 am #173916
I’m not really a fan of this film or a majority of it’s performances, but I’ll go with Jackman. He’s a dedicated performer, and he really gives it his all. Hathaway is fine enough in parts, but then terribly overwrought in others; this has to be for me one of the most overrated perfs of all time. I only cope with her Oscar win by pretending it was for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’.January 18, 2015 at 3:57 am #173917
Samantha Barks was the only one who didn’t embarrased herself, so herJanuary 18, 2015 at 10:35 am #173918

Samantha Barks just was such a bright spot here. So much better than Hathaway.January 18, 2015 at 2:13 pm #173920
Samantha Barks was the highlight for me, even moreso than Hathaway.
