The 2012 Cinema Touch Awards - ACTOR


by
Julien Faddoul


 
5. Lincoln – Daniel Day-Lewis

For carrying the world on his shoulders and yet never forcing it into an example of the imperialist performer. It is a rousing, vigorous and deeply gratifying performance.



 
4. The Color Wheel – Alex Ross Perry

For some of the year's greatest character work. His Colin was the character whom I most felt for this year and Mr Perry always knows exactly who he is. Also, for being one-half of the year's greatest duo.



 

3. Amour – Jean-Louis Trintignant

For fearlessly showing us his heart breaking so ours didn't have to break by themselves.



 
2. The Master – Joaquin Phoenix

For a harrowing, animalistic creation. The savagery of his gestures, the pain in his walk, the vulnerability in his eyes, Mr Phoenix's work is truly astonishing.


 
1. Holy Motors – Denis Lavant

For a guileless performance several times over. He electrifies his film, his co-stars and his audience in ways that has never been seen before. It is hands-down the best performance of the year.



Runner Up: Silver Linings Playbook – Bradley Cooper
