    Yep, or Jean-Louis Trintignant. Or Denis Lavant.

    Of this lineup, Hawkes - but only because Helen Hunt expected a nomination after filming his death scene.

    A decent set of nominees.

    1. Joaquin Phoenix
    2. Daniel Day-Lewis
    3. Richard Gere
    4. John Hawkes
    5. Denzel Washington

    Should have been:
    1. Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt)
    2. Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
    3. Joaquin Phoenix (The Master)
    4. Jean-Louis Trintignant (Amour)
    5. Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone)

    I kinda tired of Phoenix winning every poll PSH was better in the same movie!

    Voted for Hawkes. His Oscar snub was atrocious

    Yes! Phoenix is fine, but it's a performance that relies on tics and quirks. Contrast this with the more fully-formed, deeply complex work being done by PSH, who should have been the one competing in lead.

    The Master should’ve been Joaquin’s Oscar.

    I recall reading about that on this forum not long ago. Good for her! Humility is highly overrated.

    Very interesting. I toyed with watching The Master a few months back. So far, the only nominee I've seen is DDL.

    I'm not saying he's the best here, but we should be talking more about this Denzel performance. It's a tour-de-force.

    I don’t love the movie but the acting is phenomenal. Phoenix, Hoffman, and Adams all deserved to win in their categories.

    Ummm, I loved PSH in The Master but it's not like his performance was a stretch from what he usually does.

    It's obviously Whyquin but this set is fine enough with Hawkes and Denzel, who I was surprised was very mellow in Flight.
