I'm changing my vote to David Lynch. Only because seeing David with no votes makes me very sad. Long live Gordon Cole.

that's a pretty tough one.. i cast my vote on Naomi Watts whose performance i really enjoyed. had Grace Zabriskie had a larger role i'd probably vote for her. Matthew Lillard was also fantastic and Richard Eamon's first apperance was chilling.

agree with putting Kyle Maclachlan at #1 though and that is not only based on the size of his performance(s).. he really nailed the different characteristics of the different personalities he portrayed. his performance as "Dougie" is some of my favorte work of his.. ever.

I am with you.

All scenes with Gordon and Albert were intensely charged with the mystery of mortality. Gordon really tried to stretch time.

The first TP was an ensemble piece, you got to spend quite abit of time with each of a central core of characters, and there were a whole raft of varied and memorable performances. Whereas quite a few of the actors and actresses in this list had about 5 or 6 scenes each and that's yr lot. The performances were there in embryo but there wasn't much of an opportunity for range or continuity. So yeah Zabriskie was great but she had, what, 5 scenes? Dern was underused. Fenn was a sort of vignette or 15 minute short. Sheryl Lee was underused. People like Balthazar Getty were more or less walk-ons with party turns. I know the idea was this sort of patchwork quilt where no one element takes precedent, but when you consider the question of ' best actor' in TP3 what is striking is how little most of them were given to do.


Well, if Max Von Sydow can be nominated (not sure if he won or not) for his minimal screen time on GOT as the three-eyed raven, then I think pretty much anyone on this list has a shot. Nothing against Von Sydow - he's a great actor - but his part in GOT was really small and quite honestly not that memorable.....

After Kyle, I don't think I can just name one.

Best performances:

-Dana, who was sensitive and beautifully inquisitive.
-Seyfried, an intense livewire throughout.
-Lillard. Parts 1 & 2 were arguably defined by his tragic and utterly convincing downfall.
-Everett, Forster and Brent Briscoe, who all delivered stoic, quietly dynamic performances.
-Joy Nash. That look she gives the Laura orb puts her up there with the best of them.


Worst performances (I don't think there were obviously bad performances, but more like bad parts of a performance):

-Caleb Landry Jones. He had some great moments, (the interview with Mike was a standout, as was his abuse of Becky) but his voice was distractingly overacted and
affected. It made me realise he was an 'actor'.
-Dern, whose charisma worked at first, but was left underdeveloped for too long. She became tedious and trying, only creating an interesting character in the final acts.
-Chrysta Bell. Sometimes she worked, (the smoking scene was wonderful, and her foil to Lillard in Hastings' second interview was welcome) and sometimes she
didn't. It could feel like she was acting in a different production sometimes, and her emotion and reactions were overworked. ("Wow! They're real!")
