Well, I'm pleased as punch with most of that, aside from Renner for Best Actor. I mean, come on, there were plenty of better lead performances this year. But hooray for The SCHNEID! If only the rest of the film weren't completely shunned this year.

Yeah, Renner deserves to be nominated, but he's not tops for me either. I'm down with The Hurt Locker/Bigelow combo though, along with Waltz and The Coens. Hopefully Netflix'll send Bright Star to me when it comes out.

Michael Stuhlbarg
Isaac de Bankole
Matt Damon
Ben Whishaw
Nic Cage

Is probably my top 5 for 09. Others I'd still put above Renner:
Sam Rockwell
Adrian Brody
Viggo Mortensen
Sharlto Copley
Tom Hardy
Vincent Gallo
Joaquin Phoenix

Hmmm, so yeah. That's a lot. Not that Renner's performance wasn't solid.

This Monique juggernaut has got to stop. But I fear it won't.

I consider Landa to be a lead role, so I'm putting Waltz with the other Actors:

Christolph Waltz
Michael Stuhlbarg
George Clooney
Nic Cage
Sam Rockwell

With Adam Sandler, Sharlto Copley, Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Downey Jr., and Matt Damon rounding out the 10.

I think Jackie Earle Haley in Watchmen may be my favorite supporting perf of the year, too. Stiff competition though.

Hah, you and Jeff Wells. Why isn't Marion Cotillard winning anything? Jeebus.

It's true. Kerry Fox FTW.

I'm still a noob to the Bastages, so excuse my gushing, but I cant say enough about that performance. Every line was delivered flawlessly. I even enjoyed the way he ate strudel, for fuck sake. Landa will go down as one of the great character's of cinema

Basterds is certainly an ensemble piece, and it's hard to place Waltz outside the cast, however much screen time he has. If anyone should be highlighted in lead, it's Laurent, as she seems to have more key scenes (the two meetings with Pvt. Zoller, lunch with Goebbels and Landa, the scenes with her projectionist, the Cat People "getting ready" scene, and her in-movie monologue) and it's more her story than anyone else's, the film's title notwithstanding. Waltz has the big opening scene but then we lose him for too long a period of time to really call him a lead.

Much agreed on Haley. A real shame he's getting overlooked because of the overall reception to the film itself. He's definitely on my ballot.

I was thinking about our eventual end-of-decade thread/poll/lists/whatever, and was wondering how ambitious we want to get. I'm sure participation won't be extremely high to begin with, but I still think it would be fun to try some unique sorts of sub-categories on top of the major Top Films lists. Performances, scores, cinematography and other stuff for lists sure, but how about a Top 5/10 scenes from the decade or something along those lines. I'd like to do that.

I consider Laurent to be a lead performance as well. Waltz intersects with both the Shoshanna and Basterds storylines though, even if he weaves in and out of either of them. I'd say he dominates a good portion of the Giant Face segment, between his exchanges with Kruger and later with Pitt. It's tough. I primarily chalked him down as a lead because I think the supporting category is a little too deep. Either way, he's on top.

Haley was lauded even in the negative reviews, too. Damn shame.

Lance, I like the scenes idea, and maybe it could branch out to Best Actor in a Lame Movie, Worst Actress in a Great Movie, Unintentional Comedies, Disappointments, Overlooked Films, etc... That'll get more participation and discussion than the general Academy-type ballot.

Right, we could just throw out as many ideas as we wanted and see what sticks. But the top scenes is something I definitely want to do. I think I already know my unshakable top 3, though the order is up for internal debate.

Hmm, I haven't even really considered 10 scenes from this year. I have a feeling that would be really easy for me to do though.
