The Contenders: Page 8

141 Roy Scheider - All That Jazz
142 Denzel Washington - The Hurricane
143 Harvey Keitel - Fingers
144 Tuesday Weld - Play It As It Lays
145 Forest Whitaker - The Last King of Scotland
146 Salman Khan - Tere Naam

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

147 Angelina Jolie - Girl, Interrupted
148 Robert Mitchum - The Night of the Hunter
149 Paul Scofield - A Man for All Seasons
150 Robert Downey Jr. - Sherlock Holmes
151 Robert Downey Jr. - Chaplin
152 Martin Sheen - Apocalypse Now
153 Sylvester Stallone - Rocky
154 Matthew McConaughey - Interstellar
155 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.

156 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.

157 Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York

Brilliant performance as Bill the Butcher.

158 Sean Astin - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
159 Amy 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.

160 Eric Bana - Chopper
