    Neither. Both were horrific performances that were totally undeserving of Oscar nods.

    Neither. Day-Lewis was the deserving winner both years.

    I like both performances a lot. Depp ranks third for me in his year (behind DDL and Mortensen) and Jackman 4th (behind DDL, Phoenix and Cooper).

    I think Hugh’s performance is the better of the two though Depp’s film is the better of the two films. Les Miserables was one of the worst films to ever get a Best Picture nomination. Sweeney Todd, however, is an underrated masterpiece (am I right, Tom O’Neil?).

    Although Hugh had the btter performance of the two, but the competition was so much stronger in 2012 than it was in 2007, so I voted for Johnny.

    I would have taken Trintignant or Phoenix over DDL last year and DDL in a particularly weak 2007 race. I’m not willing to say Depp was awful in ST, but no to both.

    Let’s be real Phoenix had no shot at the Oscar because he disrespected the Oscars and Bradley Cooper was nowhere near as great as Hugh jackman Daniel day Lewis deserved all three but if it was another year Johnny depp and Hugh jackman would of won

    The poll is about who you would preferred to upset not who stood the most chance to. However, Jackson and Depp would have tough times winning most years. Depp wouldn’t have even made the cut if that were a stronger year.

    No, Bradley Cooper would have won. It’s not a matter of who was more “great” (if DDL wasn’t nominated and the greatest nominee won it would have been Phoenix, but as you said he didn’t much of a chance)  but a matter of which film the Academy liked better. And also, Bradley’s character had a strong rooting factor and a happy ending.

    And I do think Depp would have made it in even in a crowded year. It reminds me a lot of Streep’s nomination this year: respected actor in a major, well-known role from the stage.

    Cooper couldn’t handle a role in les miserables Hugh jackman could of handled Bradley’s part in silver linings playbook easily

    Which doesn’t matter whatsoever.

    Silver Linings
    Playbook was a hit with the Academy, the most popular film in the
    category with voters after Lincoln, and was especially popular among
    actors. Cooper would have won hands down with no DDL to compete with.

    Your personal preferences and opinions are irrelevant to the Oscars. That’s Oscar predicting 101.

    Depp is not comparable to Streep who can nominated for picking her nose on camera. That was probably the weakest lead actor race of the last decade. His performance received mixed reviews, and he was the only major nod the film got. He would have definitely had a tougher time in a more stacked year.

    Definitely Joaquin Phoenix. If Philip Seymour Hoffman had been nominated for Best Actor, he wouldn’t have been a bad alternative either.
