First off, I have to give Casey Affleck major props for his role in Gone Baby Gone, and am rather pissed that he, like Josh Brolin, was left out of the Best actor nod. His performance was so surreal on an epic scale as Robert Ford...you could almost cut the hetero/homo male-on-male lusting tension with a knife. He's the youngest of those nominated and has potential to take it for those other well deserving guys.Some people who have seen NCFOM say that Chigur didn't really do a whole lot...he just shot people with an air compressor and a fecalator of a shotgun. But, the whole movie is a look into the mind of a madman on a mission, and his unflinching will to accomplish a task set in front of him.
Tom Wilkinson stunned me with his ludicrous-speed dialog. He knew he was right, but couldn't make anyone believe him; or more like he wasn't able to make come out right and that came out perfectly on screen.
