2013 Best Actor Winner

Captain Phillips


Yeah, I’m kind of surprised too.  Really, this was a close race and I would have been happy giving this to any of the guys here but Tom Hanks just seemed to go that extra mile that was needed to truly impress.  A lot has been written about how well Hanks handles the film’s final moments when Phillips is going through a post-traumatic shock, but the whole film plays off of Hanks’ everyman qualities really well.  It isn’t the kind of performance where you’re bowled over by a physical transformation necessarily, but Hanks really kills it in every other way.
