Agreed. He really
struggles with the accent in The Departed and raising the voice hides that a bit so perhaps that's why he leaned that way a bit too much. I do think he can be very very good, but I don't think he's very good in The Departed.
And is there actually a rule that an actor can't be nominated for two different performances in the same year? I thought it was possible just unlikely.
