    2014 was an incredibly rich year for lead actors. Yet in my opinion, the list of actors on this lineup is better than most of what we ended up with. But again, this is why polls like this exist. To make up for past injustices. My vote would go to Tom Hardy’s one man show in Locke. Although on a different day, I could go with Jack O’Connell’s star is born turn in Starred Up or Jake Gyllenhaal’s entrepreneur from hell in Nightcrawler. 

    How about you guys, though?

    This is a very deserving lineup sans Tatum. But in the end I couldn’t resist the populist choice inside me and went with Gyllenhaal. What a haunting performance! I haven’t seen Locke.

    TIMOTHY SPALL in Mr. Turner!!! The most original and inspired biopic performance in recent memory, much better than Benedict Cumberbland who got nominated everywhere while Spall got skunked by all the mainstream groups. It’s hard for me to get upset about Gyllenhaal and Oyelowo missing out when Spall had become an also-ran way before them.

    Completely forgot about him.

    The Gyllenhall snub is beyond unforgivable

    Fiennes, Gyllenhaal, and Oyelowo should have all been Oscar nominees instead of what made the cut instead. Voted for Oyelowo.

    I’m in the Timothy Spall camp. Possibly the best performance of the decade so far, his lack of traction will be a huge WTF in years to come.

    Fiennes or Gyllenhaal. Bradley Cooper was thoroughly undeserving

    My personal line-up:

    1) Jake Gyllenhaal, Nightcrawler (Maybe my favorite performance of the decade so far)
    2) Michael Keaton, Birdman
    3) Ralph Fiennes, The Grand Budapest Hotel
    4) David Oyelowo, Selma
    5) Tom Hardy, Locke

    With Spall probably being my next runner-up.

    Snubbing Gyllenhaal and Oyelowo, possibly in favour of Cooper and Carell, was a crime.

    Spall’s awards narrative strangely resembles David Thewlis’s for Naked: won at Cannes, then later with the New York and National Society of Film Critics, but no mainstream nominations even including BAFTA. (Sally Hawkins followed a similar route for Happy-Go-Lucky, winning Silver Bear in Berlin and then winning all 3 major critics awards, but still no BAFTA nom.) Why is it that Brenda Blethyn and Imelda Staunton gain traction but these others don’t?

    Voted for Gyllenhaal.
    Though Fiennes’ omission is terrible as well. One of the greatest comedic performances in recent years.
