    This was an odd year for Best Actor. My personal lineup would have been:

    • George Clooney as Matt King in The Descendants
    • Jean Dujardin as George Valentin in The Artist
    • Michael Fassbender as Brandon Sullivan in Shame
    • David Hyde Pierce as Warwick Wilson in The Perfect Host
    • Michael Shannon as Curtis LaForche in The Artist

    (The Perfect Host is my guilty pleasure film – and David Hyde Pierce was just sublime in it. It would have made a better winner than Jean Dujardin in any case)

    But of the nominees that year, the one that stuck out to me the most was George Clooney, who gave a great, nuanced performance in a terrific film.

    1. Demian Bichir, A BETTER LIFE
    2. Gary Oldman, TAILOR, TINKER, SOLDIER, SPY
    3. George Clooney, THE DESCENDANTS
    4. Brad Pitt, MONEYBALL
    5. Jean Dujardin, THE ARTIST

    I wanted to love THE ARTIST and everything about it so much I might have prejudiced myself.  I didn’t love it 🙁   This was an over all impressive lineup and any of my top 3 winning would have been very good with me.

    Michael Shannon in Take Shelter should have won.

    Gary Oldman was absolutely fantastic, no question for me. Clooney and Dujardin are both quality runners-up.

    I haven’t seen A Better Life yet. While I do enjoy Dujardin’s performance much more than I enjoy the film itself I believe that this easily should have gone to either Clooney or Pitt.

    No contest for me. Went with Bichir.

     

    Brad Pitt: so cool in Moneyball

    I adore Oldman but: crinkly forehead and raises voice once

    George Clooney: charming and shows a bit of range

    Dujardin: charming dancer

    My vote goes to Clooney from these nominees. I don’t think that Dujardin’s win will age very well at all.

    Personally, my favorite was Michael Fassbender from Shame. I found his conveyance of emptiness and self-loathing to be more compelling than anyone else aside from maybe Michael Shannon.

    Of the nominees, I think Clooney resonates the most with me, given the weight of his character. Pitt gave probably one of his most assured performances in Moneyball, and Dujardin’s ability to express so much charm and pain without dialogue was impressive. Haven’t seen Bichir, but Oldman didn’t quite register with me like the others did (that said, I was ecstatic when I saw him get his first career nomination).

    My line-up:
    George Clooney, The Descendants
    Jean Dujardin, The Artist
    Michael Fassbender, Shame
    Ryan Gosling, Drive
    Michael Shannon, Take Shelter 

    Brad Pitt’s trying to fit in there.

    Michael Fassbender and Michael Shannon would have made such great nominees that year. Shannon would win over Clooney in my lineup.

    Michael Shannon in Take Shelter should have won.

    Wow we actually agree (well close enough) as Shannon would have been my runner-up to Demian Bichir. He was flippin’ awesome!

    I´m extremely passionate about Brad Pitt here. Not only was he most deserving in the final lineup, he was the best of the year overall (male). With a Shannon and Fassbender behind.

    I’d like to think I made it up to Brad by giving him Best Supporting Actor for The Tree of Life.
