15. Jared Leto, ‘Dallas Buyers Club’
Leto is endearing and truly breathtaking as the doomed young man dying of AIDS yet willing to devote his life to fighting it for those he cannot. His huge liquid eyes allow you to see into his gentle soul and when his character dies, the heart and soul leave the film. He deserved the Oscar, and won it.
14. Jessica Chastain, ‘Zero Dark Thirty’
