    I think he did deserve to win for The Master, but just nominated for Her. He was amazing in Her, though.

    He’s currently my first place finisher for 2012 and my second place performance for 2013 (after DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street).

    Well, just The Master is fine too.

    He definitely deserved to be nominated for “Her”. His performance was so subtle, nuanced and ultimately so heart-breaking… Miles ahead of Bruce Dern in “Nebraska”, who was only nominated for being Bruce Dern (even Will Forte, his co-star in the movie, was  better than him). I would go so far as to say that Phoenix deserved to be nominated ahead of DiCaprio who, although very charismatic and full of energy, seemed to me more of a caricature than a real person.

    This.

    Although I would have supported back-to-back wins just to see his reaction, considering his disdain for the Oscars.

    Chlotrudis got it right when they nominated him for To Die For. There’s really no point in my listing his works where I feel he has been nomination-worthy because it’s almost every film he’s been in. He’s entirely versatile and  defies type casting.

     

     

    Anyways, here’s hoping that Joaquin stays true to himself. His talent as a thespian is pretty obvious. Did he deserve back to back wins for Her and The Master? Well, that wasnt going to happen, esp for “Her” (lol), but he would have been worthy.

    No. He was GOOD, but on both occasions there were other performances I preferred.

    In 2012:
    Denis Lavant in “Holy Motors”
    Denzel Washington in “Flight”
    John Hawkes in “The Sessions”
    Jean-Louis Trintignant in “Amour”
    * I would also include Jim Broadbent (for “Cloud Atlas”) but he was more supporting than lead*

    In 2013:
    Bruce Dern in “Nebraska”
    Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street”
    Chiwetel Ejiofor in “12 Years a Slave”
    Oscar Isaac in “Inside Llewyn Davis”
    Michael B. Jordan in “Fruitvale Station”
    Mads Mikkelsen in “The Hunt”
    Robert Redford in “All is Lost”

    His nomination for “The Master” is acceptable, if only for the processing scene. The rest feels very ticky and affected to me, though. His performance in “Her” is fine, but not nomination-worthy. If it was included with people as deserving as Oscar Isaac in “Inside Llewyn Davis” or Michael B. Jordan in “Fruitvale Station,” fine. But I don’t think he deserved urgent recognition for it, though.

    Joaquin Phoenix should have won for The Master, he was better than Daniel Day Lewis in Lincoln.

    Glad he was not nominated for Her. History has McConaughey winning. Which is an insult to the real actors nominated along side him. All the people who beat Phoenix at the Oscars are real acting dynamos: Benicio del Toro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Daniel Day-Lewis (whom he should have beaten for The Master).

    I think you’re being very harsh to McConaughey. He is not exactly what I would call an amazing actor, but I think he was amazing in Dallas Buyers Club. Much better than overrated and one-note Jared Leto in the same movie IMO
