    Since someone made basically the same exact thread but for actresses, I figured why not do the same for actors.

    Also, since it wasn’t specified in the other thread, I’d say modern should mean 2000 at the earliest

    1. Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea

    2. Daniel Day Lewis, There Will Be Blood

    3. Michael Keaton, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    I still cant believe Gyllenhaal didnt win, let alone get nominated. One of the biggest snubs of the 21st century.

    Well in all fairness, that was the intent of this forum. If it was lead and supporting, Heath Ledger would probably be my number 1.
