    I have seen The Revenant, and I am a big DiCaprio fan.   And I know he is going to win this year.   But out of his most recent nominations, The Revenant is his least impressive performance.   I thought Michael Fassbender and Bryan Cranston’s work was superior and more deserving of the Best Actor Oscar this year.

    If Fassbender played Steve Jobs right to his death he most likely would have won over Leo.

    Leo isn’t winning for his performance just more to finally give it to him and shut the public up about it… Like when Al Pacino won for Scent of a Women

    Having seen The Revenant, I would say that a DiCaprio win would be deserving and I won’t argue with him finally winning this year. But, if I had a ballot, I would go with Matt Damon.

    Obviously, not that strong a year, but here goes.

    1) Michael Fassbender
    2) Leonardo DiCaprio
    3) Matt Damon
    4) Bryan Cranston
    5) Eddie Redmayne

    I’ll be pretty happy when DiCaprio wins, but I’d say that Fassbender’s work kept me captivated more than anyone else nominated this year. Damon is pretty fun in his role, though something about the film around him felt just a little too slight to really resonate with me. As glad as I am to call Bryan Cranston an Academy Award-nominated actor, his performance is extremely mannered in a very superficial way, and it feels like he never fully immerses himself into the actual character. And Eddie Redmayne I just found very uninteresting all throughout his film.

    Leo. Not as great as some of his Other roles, but given the weak pool of nominees he deserves it for sure

    If Andrew Garfield or Michael Keaton were in this category like they deserved, we might have an interesting race

    Eddie’s felt very layered, at least to me; like a million thoughts were going through his head at any moment on screen. That made for a very interesting performance, imho. I’d go with that one.

    Definitely easy to split these into two groups.

    1. Leonardo DiCaprio – The Revenant
    2. Michael Fassbender – Steve Jobs
    3. Matt Damon – The Martian

    ——–

    4. Bryan Cranston – Trumbo
    5. Eddie Redmayne – The Danish Girl

    Leonardo all the way.  Not his least viable performance at all.  I’d put it close to the top personally.  But’s that’s me.
