On the awards slate today is Best Actor. Here are the 5 men that the LAMB liked best:
5. Joaquin Phoenix (Her) – 48 points
4. Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) – 76 points
3. Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips) – 86 points
2. Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street) – 122 points
1. Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) – 131 points
Oh so close! For the second year in a row, Leo has finished runner-up for the Lion Award. Interestingly, he also received 9 points for his performance in The Great Gatsby, which would have put him in a tie for the win. In the end though, it was Chiwetel Ejiofor who reigned supreme, giving 12 Years A Slave another acting win this year.
Overall, the LAMB strayed a bit from the Oscar picks, proving that it was indeed an outstanding year for the leading men. Bruce Dern and Christian Bale were left in 6th and 8th place respectively.
