Yup, it’s Academy Award time again (YAY!) and so today for FROS, we’re going to take a look at the Best Actor Category and pick our own winner.
First up to the podium is the ever talented Bradley Cooper:
This is not a picture from the nominated movie, Silver Linings Playbook, but is instead my favorite picture of BC. I think it shows off his assets rather nicely, so I’m using it. He does has nice ‘assets,’ doesn’t he?
Next up on the podium, is Daniel Day Lewis, a man of passion known for his willingness to get deeply into each character he plays.
Daniel went to extraordinary lengths to look more like Lincoln, the movie he was nominated for, even losing an amazing amount of weight to look ‘gaunt.’ Again, this isn’t a picture of him from the movie, but is one of my favorites of him. I’ve always thought he had an interesting face, full of character and passion.
Next up is some guy I’ve never heard of before. I’ll post his picture and we’ll see if perhaps one of you guys know him:
They said he sang a lot in the movie he was in, something about Being Miserable, or What a Miserable, or something like that. Do any of you know him? I must say, he is a mighty fine looking actor!
Next up is another mysterious sort, although I know his name – the enigmatic Joaquin Phoenix, who gave a masterful performance in The Master.
He is another actor willing to go to extreme lengths to assume a character. He’s had quite a life, too, so if you have some extra time, read up on him. Fascinating.
And finally, last but not least, we have Denzel Washington in Flight, which explores our complicated relationship with our flawed heroes.
I’ve always had a thing for Mr. Washington. He seems like such a gentleman and he’s played a wide, wide array of parts.
Happy Oscar FROS, m’dears! Which is your favorite to win? However it turns out, may your week be as sparkly as the diamonds on display today and may your favorite actor walk away with the statue, too!
