    2012 was not only a rich year for male lead performances, but especially for male lead performances by foreign actors as you see by the inclusion of Matthias Schonaerts, Omar Sy, and Jean-Louis Trintignant. From this entire lineup, I’d go with Matthias Schonaerts for Rust and Bone. But how about you guys?

    Jean-Louis Trintignant was stunningly good.

    From those listed, it’s definitely John Hawkes, who is simply outstanding in The Sessions. One that should also be considered is Suraj Sharma’s tour-de-force performance in Life of Pi, which really knocked my socks off. For a first time actor, who has to hold the film together on his own for a large period of time in one of the major Best Picture contenders, his achievement should be held as highly as anyone else in that year’s Best Actor race.

    Definitely had to go with John Hawkes, probably would have been my winner that year in what might have been my favorite movie of the year. Hawkes and Hunt were wonderful together and they shouldve both been nominated. But this was a strong year, Jean Louis Trintignant was incredible in Amour, as good as or better than Riva who was also outstanding, and Jack Black showed us a totally new side of what he can do in Bernie and it paid off.

    I love Omar Sy’s inclusion here, because his performance really was remarkable, and was essential to making that movie so engaging. I still had to go with Hawkes though, whose achievement is undeniable. How he was left out for Cooper is still stunning to me.

    Denis Lavant’s kaleidoscopic masterclass in Holy Motors. I have no problem with the ultimate winner but to me Lavant gave the real performance of the year.

    Glad to see Omar Sy in second right behind John Hawkes. Nice that the performance, which was pretty under the radar imo, has its fans.

    Jack Black! He was so so so SO so good in Bernie. I feel like if Bernie came out after Boyhood he would have had a more profiled shot. He got the Globe nom but he really deserved a nomination over another Denzel being Denzel performance in Flight. John Hawkes as well.

    Omar Sy, but Hawkes is terrific too and Foxx’s performance is incredibly underrated.
