    So ultimately, you guys think Drive was the biggest Best Picture snub back in 2011. For the next poll, we’ll go into Best Actor for this year. While the category wasn’t in strong form this year, there were still some great performances left out in the cold. My vote would go to Ben Mendelsohn, who is a Spirit nominee for Mississippi Grind, yet wasn’t in the conversation as much as he should’ve been. How about you guys?

    I think Samuel L. Jackson’s performance was underappreciated. A lot of people seem to admit it was entertaining, but I think it was much more complex than that. There was so much going on about racial tension, and how that had to do with the way he was perceived throughout the movie. He had a lot more to do than he has been given credit for. He should’ve gotten a nomination. I would give it to him over anyone who actually was nominated. My vote went to Tremblay though. That was potentially the best performance of the year. I also think Geza Rohrig and Andrew Garfield are worth mentioning.

    If not for Tremblay, I would have voted Jason Segel. I’d also like to give a shout-out to Ian McKellan, who I think gave the best performance of the year.

    Where is Geza Rohrig? He should have been included in a list of ten.

    Ah, forgot about Rohrig. I’d add him, but it won’t let me add another poll option. But whoever I leave out is what the Other option is for.

    Dano, Tremblay, and Jordan all deserved the nomination. I’d also like to mention Andrew Garfield for 99 Homes and Jake Gyllenhaal for Southpaw. I don’t think they would have made my top 5, but they deserved to be in the conversation at least.

    Jacob Tremblay, but I want to bring attention to Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies. Fantasic work that should have gotten more attention.

    Jacob Tremblay, no contest here. The boy should have been nominated and should have won. Sorry Leo.

    I was also a huge fan of 99 Homes. I found it unfortunate that his performance never really seemed to go anywhere, as far as awards were concerned. Even the campaign for the film seemed more centered around Michael Shannon’s work.

    The big three for me are Jordan, Dano, and Elba

    Tremblay’s performance in Room was unlike anything I’ve seen before. I love Leo, but if the Oscar were between Tremblay and DiCaprio I’d have to go with the kid.

    Can someone go into detail about why they prefer Tremblay’s performance to Attah’s?

    The former seemed orchestrated in parts, whereas Attah was authentic throughout.
