The Other

Russell Crowe in A BEAUTIFUL MIND (He plays a genius, a madman, does an accent, and ages 40 years on screen. And does it all BRILLIANTLY. Watch his gait, the flicks of his neck and eyes, the way his hand keeps touching his head - and then watch how it evolves over the course of the movie. BRILLIANT I tell ya)

Haley Joel Osment in A.I. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (Like a true robot, he never blinked. He was actually kind of creepy at first, but by the end I actually felt extremely sorry for David, even though he was, essentially, a machine. Give this kid an Oscar already!)

Ewan McGregor in MOULIN ROUGE! (He does emotionally exuberant, heartfelt work that easily matches Kidman's. A genuinely bold, risky performance. (Oh yea, he sings too!))

Tom Cruise in VANILLA SKY (He's at his charismatic best. He also does some interesting acting when events spin out of control, showing a much darker side of himself.)
