You to not have a feeling that I do absolutely nothing, I decided to put down my nominees of the performances from films of 2012 I have seen yet. I haven't seen many of them, but here are my nominees so far:

best leading actor:
Matthias Schoenaerts - Rust and Bone
Richard Gere - Arbitrage
Shia LaBeouf - Lawless
Tommy Lee Jones - Hope Springs
Woody Allen - To Rome with Love

best leading actress:
Anne Hathaway - The Dark Knight Rises
Judi Dench - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

best supporting actress:

This really is a strong awards season. The proof of this fact is that even though I haven't seen most of this year's awards contenders, I've been able to put together the nominees I don't have to be ashamed for.
