    Regardless of whether this said person(s) was nominated for anything or not, who do you believe gave the most indelible and finest performance in a film in 2013?

    Based on the films I’ve seen thus far, I have to say that the best performance I saw all year was Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine. I felt this way back when I saw the film in the theater in August, before she started winning every award in the book. What this radiant woman does for 90 minutes was and still is utterly astonishing to behold. When I was rewatching the film a few weeks ago with a friend who hadn’t yet seen it, I advised him to just “watch her eyes” throughout the movie. I’ve never seen an actor use his or her eyes to convey such manic sadness the way that she does as Jasmine. The fact that she’s likely a shoe-in for the Best Actress Oscar proves there is still justice in this crazy world. I’m so glad that one of the best is back after a few years away from major film roles. I can’t wait to see what she does next (Monuments Men).

    Honorable mentions: Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club, Julie Delpy in Before Midnight, Mads Mikkelsen in The Hunt, Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave, Matthew McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club and Mud, Joaquin Phoenix in Her

    WHY DO PEOPLE ALWAYS SEPARATE MEN AND WOMEN? ACTORS ARE ACTORS!

    That said, Brie Larson by a mile.

    The performance that affected me the most in 2013 was Matthew McConaughy in “Dallas Buyers Club” followed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Sandra Bullock.

    Note: Seeing so many people mention Leonardo DiCaprio makes me think he has the Goldderby Award in the bag even if his odds of winning the Oscar are not so good. I think “Wolf of Wall Street” might even take best picture from the Goldderby voters.

    The one that affected me the most deeply was Chiwetel Ejiofor in “12 Years a Slave.”

    Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips.  Not only for the last ten minutes, but for the entire performance.

    I would also like to recognize Dicaprio, not for Wolf of Wall Street, but for his perfect performance in The Great Gatsby, a film I hated.  DiCAprio simply blew me away in that film.

    I’d give Emma Thompson best performance at an awards show for her amazing turn as tipsy Emma Thompson throwing her shoes at the Golden Globes. Haha.

    Four-way tie between Cate Blanchett, Jared Leto, Adele Exarchopoulos & Leonardo DiCaprio with Cate Blanchett being my personal favorite.
