20 Best Acting Performances of 2014

20 Best Acting Performances of 2014

Next is acting performances. Don't get me wrong: I don't mix these 20 outstanding actors and actresses altogether; I made 4 categories with 5 actors or actresses in each category. And as I made this list, I realized that... my list is kind of anti-mainstream. That does not mean that I haven't watched the movies whose stars are nominated in global awards like Globes, BAFTAs, Oscars, and all. It's just that my personal taste doesn't make me think that they are good enough.

Oh, before we started, the categories are:
1. Best Actresses in Supporting Roles
2. Best Actors in Supporting Roles
3. Best Actresses in Leading Roles
4. Best Actors in Leading Roles

I sorted 5 actors or actresses in each category from 05 to 01, with 01 meaning the best compared with the other four. Also, besides the 5 actors or actresses in each category, I have another 5 actors or actresses that almost made the list.

So, here we go:

BEST ACTRESSES IN SUPPORTING ROLES

Almost made the list (in alphabetical order):
Demet Akbag (Winter Sleep), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Agata Kulesza (Ida), Sarah Snook (Predestination), Hailee Steinfeld (Begin Again)

  1. Gyllenhaal! God, I'm still angry he didn't get an Oscar nomination for that performance.
