First total idiotic pick...



It's a great pick.

Levy's worst fear came true:

#57
Russell Crowe, Gladiator (2000)


Never understood the love for the performance, which doesn't compare to almost any other ones Crowe have given (The Insider, L.A. Confidential, A Beautiful Mind, even Cinderella Man and Master and Commander).

At least the pain from last pick should be offset by this one:

#56
James Stewart, Rear Window (1954)

It's not my worst fear. But I agree. I'd rank his performances this way:

The Insider
Master and Commander
L.A. Confidential
American Gangster
A Beautiful Mind
Gladiator
Cinderella Man

Hmm, I always thought Crowe's turn in Gladiator was his second-strongest after A Beautiful Mind.

Finally another female performance, and one that I adore.

This thread is going to help both Levy and me to get closer to our next respective milestones too (10,000 and 15,000). :)
