    “Half Nelson.” That’s it. I still would have voted for Whitaker tho. He should have Oscar nods for “The Believer” and “Lars & the Real Girl.”

    I thought he was pretty good in Half Nelson but especially in Blue Valentine. I would’ve voted Whitaker and Bardem, though.

    I’d nominate him for Blue Valentine, Drive, La La Land, and Blade Runner 2049. Not sure if I’d give him the win for any of those. I haven’t seen Half Nelson.

    Would have nominated him for:
    Half Nelson
    Lars and the Real Girl
    Blue Valentine
    Drive
    The Nice Guys

    Some of them are right on the edge of it, especially Blue Valentine, but I don’t see any of those performances as winners yet. He’ll get there though I’m sure.

    Lots of stanning in here.

    That said I think his indie’s were really great. I prefer them to what he has recently released. I probably would consider his best work between the time period of 2001-2011. Of his performances I would consider these to be the most memorable, and some of which are work he should have been nominated for.

    2001, The Believer

    2002, The Slaughter Rule

    2003, The United States Of Leland

    2006, Half Nelson

    2010, Blue Valentine

    2011, Drive

    I wouldn’t have nominated him for La La Land – but I see that nomination as an apology for his Blue Valentine/Drive snub back in 2010/2011.

    It’s insane to me that he is only a 2 time Oscar nominee. He should’ve easily been nominated for Blue Valentine and Lars and the Real Girl (Drive was also amazing but the Oscars never seem to nominate those types of performances- see Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler).

    My personal favourite performance of his was Lars and the Real Girl. I don’t know if he should’ve won yet, but he will soon. Next year, playing Neil Armstrong in First Man?

    I think Blue Valentine was probably his best performance that the Academy would have acknowledged with a win in his filmography, but he didn’t have enough buzz to eclipse Franco and Eisenberg that year. I would consider his performance in Blue Valentine better than Williams’.

    He is not oscar winner material but his performance in blue valentine should have absolutely been nominated.

    However, was very disappointed to see him nominated for La La Land in a year of great performances, he was rewarded for basically playing himself.

    Agreed, if he ever takes it out of third gear that may change at some point but the way it stands he’s not in any serious discussion for the work he’s done so far.

    I would have nominated Gosling for: 2011 Best Actor: Drive (WINNER) 2011 Best Actor: The Ides Of March 2011 Best Supporting Actor: Crazy, Stupid, Love 2013 Best Supporting Actor: The Place Beyond The Pines 2016 Best Actor: La La Land He is also contending for a slot in 2017 Best Actor for Blade Runner 2049 (need to see a few final contenders before finalising my line-up). Just to say, I’ve not seen Half Nelson or Blue Valentine.

     

    Those are two of his best performances by far. Must see, get on that ASAP lol. Especially Blue Valentine…

    He far from played himself, he played himself in “Drive”, if anything. A quiet, mysterious, monotonous caring guy. In La La Land he dances and sings- the complete opposite of him in reality.

    He absolutely deserved nods for Blue Valentine, Drive, and Lars and the Real Girl. I haven’t seen Half Nelson, but if the Academy were more receptive to comedy, I would include The Nice Guys, where he was a delight.

    He will never top Blue Valentine, which shits all over the Best Actor lineup that year.

    I don’t even know how people here are honestly comparing Gosling to Dean or Clift, when the most obvious influence is Marlon Brando. As his work in Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines shows, he’s got that silent intensity, magnetic bad boy thing going on for him that characters like Johnny Strabler or Terry Malloy would have (ironically, his Luke in Place Beyond is also a motorcycle rider).

    I love Gosling but comparing him to Dean, Clift and/or Brando is blasphemous. He’s nowhere near that level.
