Through the month of January I will be looking back on 2014, I will be looking at a range of subjects where I will be picking my best or worst in separate posts.
Today I will be look at Best Male Performance. Today I am looking at best male performance, and we all know that without a good lead actor you will end up with a bad film.
Mentions that could have been number one;
Tom Hardy – Locke
Michael Fassbender – Frank
Eddie Redmayne –The Theory of Everything
Eddie plays Stephen Hawking and we follow from his early stages of his illness until he makes a real impact on the world of physics.
Chris Pratt – Guardians of the Galaxy
Tom Cruise – Edge of Tomorrow
Channing plays wrestler Mark Shutlz who is trying to compete in the 1988 Olympics but after entering into the Foxcatcher training camp where everything changes.
Steve plays John du Pont the coach at the Foxcatcher ranch who wants to put together the best wrestling team for the 1988 Olympics. This was one performance i didn’t think Carell was capable of but he proved me and nearly everyone wrong.
Andy Serkis – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
I love your picks but I’m especially glad you included Andy Serkis. The man is a genius. I think I’d also include Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game. Absolutely brilliant!
Thanks, i have yet to see Imitation Game
