    Some people say that Tremblay acted circles around his co-star Brie Larson, the difference is that while the former got snubbed by the Oscars, the latter is winning the prize. Different category, I know I know, but still, isn’t it a bit unfair that we celebrate only Larson…?

    So let’s decide is. Who gave a better performance in “Room”. Brie or Jacob?

    Tremblay for sure. I’d actually rank Larson 4th among the Lead Actress nominees.

    Brie Larson. And I didn’t even love her performance and she isn’t even in my top 2 on BActress lineup.

    Grrr. Somehow I knew you are going to be team Larson. I think she’s good, but Jacob Tremblay is “Room”. I can imagine the film without Larson, and with another actress, but I cannot imagine film without baby Tremblay.

    Why? There are so many cute six year olds outs there. Ehehehe I’m kind of a snob on this subject. To make me vote for a child at the age of a kindergarten over a professional actor, the performance has to be out of the world good. And this just wasn’t that for me. And, of course everything looks pitch perfect after endless repeats and final cuts, but as an actor working opposite a little kid in more than half of the movie; Larson’s work was much harder than one might think. Can you imagine how many times they had to stop shooting to help Tremblay memorize his lines?

    But if we’re gonna judge which one of these father’s is the hottest, Tremblay’s wins by a mile of course! Yum.

    But all actors get recut, so that is not an advantage that child actors have over more experienced actors. If Larson had extra time and takes to perfect her performance as she allegedly waited for Tremblay to learn his lines, you would think that she would have been able to impress us more.

    Or maybe she was distracted and got cut so many times, that affected her performance in a negative way after some point. When all the attention in the set was on a little kid, the director might have had left Larson on her own more than he’d planned. And even she might have started to focus on his reactions more than her own to keep the whole thing going forward.

    To be honest, the two are dependent on each other I would say.

    Their off screen relationship is something that makes the film work.

    like Brie said in Golden Globes, Jacob is half of her performance and half of the award. I think it’s also the other way around too.

    Honestly, with all objectivity, at the age of 9, it’s a bit harder to play a role you don’t understand. Jacob had to show us exactly what his character was feeling. Without him knowing anything about the situation or understand things like “rape” “kidnap” “nervous breakdown” and so on. Brie is an adult. I’m not saying her job was easy, because that would be a bullshit, but at least she’s aware of the cruel world and had hard roles before, so she can relate to certain issues. I think Jacob is such a sweet naiv little guy, so playing this deep and complex character is something you don’t see very often on the screen.

    Larson was great but Tremblay was Room. 

    In my eyes, he gave the best male performance of the year.
