Based on their previous acting nominations who deserved an acting Oscar the most?
Also who do you think will get one first?March 4, 2014 at 5:34 am #145692
Phoenix probably deserves one the most. Though I think Leo or Depp will actually win first.March 4, 2014 at 5:46 am #145693
Not Depp or cruise, but the other 3 have been very Oscar worthy, just in the wrong years.March 4, 2014 at 5:53 am #145694
tie between DiCaprio and PhoenixMarch 4, 2014 at 6:16 am #145695
Despite all the insane Behavior and pooping all over. Phoenix.March 4, 2014 at 6:29 am #145696
Phoenix is the best actor of the bunch, but DiCaprio has had more deserving performances. Pitt’s got a few, Cruise a couple. I don’t think Depp has ever been deserving.March 4, 2014 at 6:33 am #145697
DiCaprio and Phoenix will get it first.March 4, 2014 at 6:42 am #145698
Phoenix BY FAR.The other three are not in the same league at all tbh.March 4, 2014 at 6:48 am #145699
All have given great perfs. My vote goes to Joaquin, whose work in Her tips the scales; add that to his strong resume. Imo the guy never plays a false note.
Who wins first (acting)? Well after his loss this year, if memories last more than a few days, I think Leo may have the edge. Plus, look at who hr continues to collaborate with.
Pitt has his Oscar and the Communist Bloc may prevent him from winning until he becomes very old and wrinkled or he turns to Directing.
Depp could win, but he doesnt glad-hand or ‘hang out’ much, and although this may not matter, it doesnt help.
Then there’s Cruise. I happen to respect his work (and side wifh him). I could say more but I’ll stop here, except to say that tolerance is a two-way road.March 4, 2014 at 6:50 am #145700
I wonder when/if he wins, he will dedicate his oscar to his brother River, also, if they play the “wrap it up music” to him, if he would totally freak out and people would be scared, it would be totally touching and hillarious.March 4, 2014 at 7:00 am #145701

I loved watching River. She slays in Running on Empty. Terrific Ensemble too.March 4, 2014 at 7:12 am #145702
All should have won by now:
1993 – Best Supporting Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape)
1999 – Best Supporting Actor: Tom Cruise (Magnolia)
2004 – Best Actor: Johnny Depp (Finding Neverland)
2008 – Best Actor: Brad Pitt (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button)
2012 – Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix (The Master)
2013 – Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street)March 4, 2014 at 7:15 am #145703
Offtopic here but Macbeth^ that picture! Probably the most good-looking batch in a long time!March 4, 2014 at 7:27 am #145704
Wow. They are the most beautiful group of acting winners ever. Giving hope to the world’s poor, downtrodden beautiful people. Looks like McConaughey and Leto have screwed up Tom’s Slap the Stud theory.
Joaquin Phoenix – absolutely. Hopefully next year for Inherent Vice. Though I bet his acceptance speech will be goofier than McConaughey’s!
Johnny Depp, for me, becomes increasingly ridiculous. He’s played out. Leonardo Di Caprio needs to work with younger, risk-taking directors. I thought Brad Pitt should have won for Benjamin Button. But I’m beginning to doubt he has any range at all after his last couple of performances. Everybody in 12 Years was good – but him.
Tom Cruise can’t act his way out of a paperbag.
