    They all gave phenomenal performances. Margot Robbie surprised me the most, as her scenes in the beginning were pretty monotonous and weak, but DAMN did she bring it in the second half. Jonah Hill was also really good, as was Matthew McConaughey in an underrated role. Kyle Chandler was also great in his limited sceentime.

    Weird that this poll comes along right after I watched the film. 

    I think Hill was the best one, he was hilarious and repulsive in equal measure. Robbie is a very close second though, and if Hollywood is not stupid, they’ll start giving her Sharon Stone/Cameron Diaz roles. McConaughey was entertaining and really good in his very short role. And Chandler was nice, but didn’t really get anything much to do.

    ^^ Yep.

    Hill was great. Robbie gave one of the best supporting peformances of the year, but she didn’t have enough time to be the best in the film.

    She made every moment count, though.

    I can’t get over how great Hill was in this role. He deserves almost as much praise as DiCaprio. This was a Joe Pesci-like role, and he nailed it. He got the perfect mix of insanity, intensity and funny. That was some perfect casting there.

    Robbie. I thought she was just a Jaime Pressly look a like, but she has charisma and she can act. Again, she’s hot!

    McConaughey was really magnetic and charismatic, and stole every scene he was in. If he had more screen time, it wouldn’t be a question. As it is, I would narrowly give the edge to Hill.

    Yeah, Bernthal had more to do (and did it better) than Chandler.

    Hill. Few actors can pull off the combination of hilarity, debauchery, douchiness, creepiness and insanity as well as he did.

    I wish Jean Dujardin had more to do. As is, I still loved his work.

    Of course Hill was the best, Robbie second. I’d put Bernthal third, I’d love to see him play leading man in a Scorsese film someday.

    Kyle Chandler did great with his little screentime. He’s a rising star if you ask me.

    McConaughey, though, is the real one scene wonder. 

    Why isn’t Rob Reiner on this list? I thought he was fantastic.

    Dujardin was hot in this movie! I also really liked his first scene with Leo.

    I voted for McConaughey. His is the shortest of those mentioned performances, but his lunch scene with DiCaprio was probably my favorite scene of the whole movie. I could have watched an enitre movie just of that scene.

    Hill is reminicent of the Pesci-like role. He was great and truly deserving of his nomination. I am placing him runner up behind Leto. Margot Robbie is awesome too, but where is Rob Reiner … he was hilarious!

    In a film littered with one-dimensional characters, Robbie brought the most substance to her role.

    I thought McConaughey was the MVP, but maybe because his role was so short and my big complaint about WOWS is that it is way too long and too repetitive (too many orgies – seen one, seen them all to quote ‘Shoot the Piano Player’ – too many trading room scenes) and I feel I got an overdose of Jonah Hill. I agree Jean Dujardin shouldn’t be overlooked. Another complaint: I speak French but for most of the audience who don’t, all his snarky comments weren’t subtitled – and they were hysterical. Dujardin is a comic genius and he really got steamrolled there.
