Already three from 2004.


He was better in Shoot 'Em Up and American Splendor.

This beat out her Closer performance in the WOKJ yearly awards. I hope that is not left off this list.


Hated Closer. A bunch of a**holes screwing each other. Had no appeal for me.

#91
Joaquin Phoenix, Gladiator (2000)


Pretty meh about all the performances in Gladiator, but at least it's toward the bottom.

Yeah, due to NFL season I guess, unlike when Box announced the best films.

Crowe's best ever performance, though Pacino was even better in the same movie.

This second ten has been far more satisfying. Great classic performances and Russel Crowe's amazing turn in The Insider.

And, also:

Quote:
Henry Fonda, The Grape of the Wrath (1940)


lol

I'm not sure what The Grape of the Wrath is. It's The Grapes of Wrath!

Yay for Travolta, Stewart, Fonda, Freeman and Pesci.
And especially for Crowe in The Insider, first appearance of my top 20 (had him on #6)

Ethan Hawke in Before Sunset. :thumbdown: :thumbdown:
