    In 2007, 2008 and 2009, a villain won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Who do you think gave the best performance?

    This is an incredibly idiotic post. Ledger gave one of the best performances of all-time. Waltz was also very excellent-best performance of 09. Bardem is strong, but nowhere near the level of the previous 2.

    I voted for the wrong person on accident lol. Javier do not belong in this category. His look made his performance imo. Waltz and Ledger were on a different level.

    Totally agreed. In my opinion, Javier isn’t even in contention against the other two. But I thought I would get crap if I didn’t include Javier from the No Country fans, since they all played villains.

    Performance wise I’d go with Waltz, though Bardem’s character effected me the most.

    Though I must those 3 gentlemen put up the best supporting actor performances of the decade, (everyone else kind of sucked besides Toro and Freeman.)

    Who would be the top 3 females? I would say Mo’Nique, Harden, and Swinton.

    All of the three are awesome and among my favorite performances of the past decade. I went with Waltz, but I think the three of them ae very, very close in level of quality.

    I also disagree completely that Javier’s look was the reason why Chigurh has impact.  The look is part of the reason the character became iconic, but isn’t the only one. Bardem brings a whole sense of menace though facial expressions and body language that suggests way more about the character than we actually get to see, which makes the character feel very lived in. It was a very bold performance even if stoic and with very little dialogue, and very carefully constructed while at the service of the tone of the film first and foremost. Just fucking great, really.

    From those three choices, I went with Heath Ledger.

    Each of them are such rich, incredible performances. What is interesting about each of these villains is that none of them have a backstory (except for the Joker’s “why so serious?” tale, if that even counts as a backstory) and none of them explain a motivation for doing what they do (Landa makes it very clear that he has no interest in being a Nazi or alliegance to Hitler), so we can only assume that they do what they do out of sheer enjoyment of doing it.

    I voted for Heath Ledger, because his character is maniacal yet philosophical at the same time, and Heath was able to recognize and play off of that. You could tell that he had a clear idea and vision of what he wanted to look and sound like for each line he had, and that the performance seem so fluid and well put-together. Probably one of the stand-out film performances of all time.

    Javier Bardem should give his Oscar to Hal Holbrook who was far and away the best in that year’s category.. Between the other two I went with Waltz.

    Waltz > Ledger > Bardem.  They were all good, but it’s a very easy rank and they’re all far apart in quality.

    Ledger 

    Waltz

    Bardem

    All three were great, but I’d have to go with Heath Ledger. He made an icon out of an already iconic villain. That’s fucking difficult, imo. The spaces between them indicate my personal ranking of their performances.  Top = better.
