Vote for your favorite collective nominated work from these actors from 2000 to 2012. Minimum of 3 nominations to be included.
Lotsa choices!!!June 9, 2013 at 9:05 am #544933
Philip Seymour HoffmanJune 9, 2013 at 9:42 am #544934
I voted Bardem. Day-Lewis a close second.
8. HoffmanJune 9, 2013 at 10:56 am #544935
I think Philip Seymour Hoffman has the best collection of nominated performances.
8. BridgesJune 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm #544936
How can any of these actors compare to Day-Lewis???June 9, 2013 at 7:23 pm #544937
Day-Lewis easily triumphs all this competition with TWBB.June 11, 2013 at 1:38 am #544938
Out of these I’m going for Hoffman for being consistently good and he’s great in Capote and The Master!
Day-Lewis is terrific in There Will Be Blood, but I consider his work in Lincoln technically good but I can’t say I cared much about it. And Gangs of New York unimpressive and forced.
Bardem will always have his Zeitgeist role, but I prefer his earlier work.
Sean Penn is the one actor I really don’t care about. Mystic River was okay, but really Tim Robbins stole the show. I haven’t seen it since 2003 when I was a kid, so maybe I need to revisit it. But Milk was insulting! Not even his mannerism was technically good. And I Am Sam? Come on!
I don’t care about Depp’s performances.
Bridges is solid, but really nothing really worthy of Oscars!
Phoenix has The Master, which is a brilliant performance!
I prefer to believe that Clooney has never been a nominee!June 16, 2013 at 1:05 pm #544939
1. Hoffman – consistently great, always seems different in each film, plenty of range
2. Day-Lewis – disappears into his roles, There Will Be Blood and Lincoln are marvelous, Gangs of New York rather hammy
3. Phoenix – one of the greatest living actors under 40, would have been a worthy winner for every film he was nominated for
4. Depp – also disappears into his roles, picks interesting and exotic projects and generally strong directors
5. Clooney – he’s a very subtle actor, capable of pulling off quiet roles perfectly
6. Penn – extremely talented actor, lots of range and fully realized performances
7. Bardem – could easily switch with Penn, fascinating and sometimes even heartbreaking work
8. Bridges – amazing actor but these are three of his least brilliant performancesJune 16, 2013 at 1:31 pm #544940
1) Daniel Day-Lewis
2) Philip Seymour Hoffman
3) Joaquin Phoenix
4) Javier Bardem
5) Johnny Depp
6) George Clooney
7) Sean Penn
8) Jeff Bridges (Just want to qualify this by stating that while I don’t think that his Oscar-nominated roles match up to the rest, I really enjoyed him in True Grit, and wouldn’t have minded it if he won the Oscar in 2010, provided Firth had won in 2009. Even then, however, I still would have preferred Franco over him,)
