Best Leading Actor 2011

5. Demián Bichir - A Better Life
What a beautiful year. Filled with so many wonderful performance, just like Bichir's was. His portrayal of an exilic father is just extraordinary. It is really difficult performance to play, but he never fails to brings us a realistic and convincing performance that is not seen very often. He is the most important thing of the film. If e didn't play it so greatly, it would almost destroy the film. I really have nothing against this performance...


4. Gary Oldman - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

The most complex and one of the best subtle performances I have ever seen. Oldman never fails to give us a wonderful performance of an ordinary man. The fact that he is so ordinary makes him so interesting. This is a character any other actor would play too lackluster and we would not remember this performance a week after the film. But Oldman is too good actor to choose this way. He makes this extremely ordinary character remarkable. Great, great performance...

3. George Clooney - The Descendants
Clooney's performance is not perfect. It has got a lots of mistakes and many actors would play it technically better. But it think that it's the faultiness that makes this performance so adorable. This film is full of mistakes. From the direction to the screenplay and performances. But that's what makes this film so beloved. The naivety. And Clooney's performance wonderfully applies into this film. Everything of it. The fact that he is unconvincing sometimes and the fact that he's himself sometimes and even the fact that he's playing the same character like in Up in the air. And he's got many great scenes, too...


2. Jean DuJardin - The Artist

What a lovely performance! DuJardin completely shines in his role and does everything he should. He is charming and entertaining throughout the whole film and all of the other actors are overshadowed by him. The fact that it's a silent film means that he has to overact extremely and he does it as much, as it's needed. I'm a little bit sorry for his last scenes in which he speaks and his French accent is just terrible and it completely destroys his performance. But it's not a big deal...

1. Brad Pitt - Moneyball
I can't even describe the brilliantness of this performance. It has got the depth, it's funny where it has to be and it's just simply perfect. I'm kind of speechless, because you just have to see it. Who still didn't believe that Pitt is a spectacular actor here is another proof that will completely persuade you...
