Greatest Acting Performances On Film


The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Harvey Keitel - Fingers
142Tuesday Weld - Play It As It Lays
143Forest Whitaker - The Last King of Scotland
144Salman Khan - Tere Naam

A greatest acting by salman and the movie is so unic so grace and the music are minblowing.

145Angelina Jolie - Girl, Interrupted
146Robert Mitchum - The Night of the Hunter
147Paul Scofield - A Man for All Seasons
148Robert Downey Jr. - Sherlock Holmes
149Robert Downey Jr. - Chaplin
150Martin Sheen - Apocalypse Now
151Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Terminator
152Sylvester Stallone - Rocky
153Matthew McConaughey - Interstellar
154J.K. Simmons - Whiplash

Even though Miles Teller is up there with Simmons, the intensity of the character just makes you hate him, but love the performance.

155Leonardo diCaprio - Shutter Island

Better than Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribean. I love Orlando but the role in Shutter Island is much more difficult to play, especially at the end and Leonardo diCaprio did it so perfectly. He is great in every single role he takes. Probably one of my favourite actors.

156Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York

Brilliant performance as Bill the Butcher.

157Graham Chapman - Monty Python and the Holy Grail
158Linda Blair - The Exorcist
159Sean Astin - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
160Amy Adams - Big Eyes

Amazing how Amy Adams plays the introvert, shy and vulnerable Margaret Keane in this movie.
Amy Adams is a really talented actress but so undrerated for her acting skills.
