141 Mathieu Amalric - The Diving Bell and The Butterfly Mathieu Amalric - The Diving Bell and The Butterfly
142 Roy Scheider - All That Jazz Roy Scheider - All That Jazz
143 Denzel Washington - The Hurricane Denzel Washington - The Hurricane

145 Tuesday Weld - Play It As It Lays
146 Forest Whitaker - The Last King of Scotland Forest Whitaker - The Last King of Scotland
147 Salman Khan - Tere Naam Salman Khan - Tere Naam

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

148 Angelina Jolie - Girl, Interrupted Angelina Jolie - Girl, Interrupted
149 Robert Mitchum - The Night of the Hunter Robert Mitchum - The Night of the Hunter
150 Paul Scofield - A Man for All Seasons Paul Scofield - A Man for All Seasons
151 Daniel Day-Lewis - Lincoln Daniel Day-Lewis - Lincoln

Day-Lewis' Lincoln is a man of wrenching inner turmoil and sadness, faced with impossible moral dilemmas and responsibility, who nevertheless absolutely must conduct himself with quiet calm and assurance. The actor's genius is in that we see it all simultaneously.

152 Robert Downey Jr. - Sherlock Holmes Robert Downey Jr. - Sherlock Holmes
153 Robert Downey Jr. - Chaplin Robert Downey Jr. - Chaplin
154 Martin Sheen - Apocalypse Now
155 Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Terminator
156 Sylvester Stallone - Rocky Sylvester Stallone - Rocky
157 Matthew McConaughey - Interstellar
158 J.K. Simmons - Whiplash J.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.

159 Leonardo diCaprio - Shutter Island Leonardo 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.

160 Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York

Brilliant performance as Bill the Butcher.
