    2011 –
    I cheated with Rickman. He wins for every delicious little bit of his performances over all 8 films and for not giving him a win for “Sense and Sensibility” for good measure. He was good enough in this last installment to win anyway. When I first made these lists I didn’t have Chris O’Dowd in. I just re-watched “Bridesmaids” and couldn’t resist his charms so I booted Ben Kingsley from “Hugo”, just over Mortensen. All the other “Bridesmaids” mentions were there before the re-watch.

    Director: Woody Allen -“Midnight In Paris”, Pedro Almodóvar -“The Skin I Live In”, Asghar Farhadi -“A Separation”, Alexander Payne -“The Descendants”, Martin Scorsese -“Hugo”

    Alan Rickman is a very inspired choice. There was so much greatness this year.

    Once again, I have a Picture/Director split, because this was a great year. Admittedly, I cheated a little bit giving it to The Trip, because it is originally a TV series, but it is too good. Steve Coogan is absurdly underrated (though admittedly I didn’t like Alan Partridge that much). Rickman was my third place; almost my runner-up. As other people have said already, Supporting Actor was a great category.

    Michael Shannon -“Take Shelter”

    Great choice, dude. He’s a great actor and he was amazing in that film. It’s a real shame they snubbed him.

    – From the 20 acting nominations, only 1 made the cut at the Oscars: Christopher Plummer for “Beginners”.

    – Again, another very competitive year for lead actress: Tilda Swinton missed for “We Need To Talk About Kevin”.

    – Peyman Moadi was the only lead for “A Separation”. Both Sareh Bayat and Leila Hatami were “submitted” as supporting here.

    Fiennes for Harry Potter is a nice addition as well. Julie Walters too! My favorite little but still huge moment in the whole thing is when she calls Bonham Carter a bitch, reminding me of Sigourney Weaver in Aliens! That and when Smith starts wielding her wand at Rickman like a warrior.

    Great choice, dude. He’s a great actor and he was amazing in that film. It’s a real shame they snubbed him.

    Michael Shannon is always great. Several times when creating these lists I left him off, wishing I had more room.

    I love seeing all the mentions of “Margaret” & “Weekend”. Cullen & Fassbender were super close for me including them.

    Fiennes for Harry Potter is a nice addition as well. Julie Walters too! My favorite little but still huge moment in the whole thing is when she calls Bonham Carter a bitch, reminding me of Sigourney Weaver in Aliens! That and when Smith starts wielding her wand at Rickman like a warrior.

    Thanks! I love that moment, too! (Well, both of them, but especially Walters.)
