    #1: Anne Hathaway – The Dark Knight Rises ( 29 % ) vs. Les Miserables ( 71 % )
    #2. Bradley Cooper – American Hustle ( 62 % ) vs. TPBTP ( 38 % )
    #3. Sandra Bullock- Gravity (97%) vs. The Heat (3%)
    #4. Jessica Chastain- The Tree of Life (46%) vs. The Help (54%)
    #5. Julianne Moore- Maps To The Stars (40%) vs. Still Alice (60%)
    #6. Jennifer Lawrence- The Hunger Games (33%) vs. SLP (67%)

    For the next poll, do you believe that Brad Pitt was rightfully recognized for his subtle, unassuming turn in Moneyball or would you have included him for his iron-fisted yet vulnerable work in The Tree of Life?

    Different categories, but he should have won in supporting.

    He was fantastic in both, but he ended up my supporting actor winner for Tree of Life, whereas I think he just fell out of my Top 5 for Lead Actor with Moneyball.

    I’m not sure. I guess I’ll say Tree of Life. Explosive, contained, and somewhat inscrutable.

    But he’s terrific in Moneyball. Very happy he received the nomination….along with Jonah Hill.

    Moneyball all the way. It should’ve swept the Oscars. My second favorite movie of all time.

    Even taking out my bias against The Tree of Life, Pitt was so much better in Moneyball. I wouldn’t put his Tree of Life performance anywhere near my top 5, but his Moneyball performance is second that year only to Gary Oldman for me.

    He was roghtly nominated. However, he SHOULD HAVE been nominated for both, and imo, actually win both.

    I prefer his role in Tree of Life, but he’s good in Moneyball too, and since they are two different categories, he could/should have been nominated for both roles.

    Apparently actors in Malick films dont get nominated perhaps because the Director is the ‘star’. I suppose they’re seen as ‘props’ to shore up his gorgeous-looking movies. (Could Jack Fisk finally score one for The Revenant?)

    “Moneyball.” Not a fan of “The Tree of Life” at all.

    UMM, isn’t that the one where they nominated Jonah Hill for combing his hair? Nice part!

    BTW, Brad Pitt’s smirky, gum-snapping “performance” in Moneyball is one of his worst and deserved a Razzie nomination, not an Oscar nomination. Moneyball is not a movie about the love of baseball–it’s a movie about fucking computer algorithms, MBA’s not MVP’s. It’s a movie that glorifies the bottom line corporate approach to sports and as such depicts the Brad Pitt character happily firing employees, like Mitt Romney on a downsizing spree.

    Brad Pitt was so much better in Tree of Life. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst, I’d give Moneyball a 1 and Tree of Life a 10.

    Aww.

     

     

    I’m shocked and pleased that Moneyball is winning this poll.

    Thank you for proving my point.
