Every year, a different batch of actors makes their mark on the movie world. They are nominated for a bunch of awards and are praised by critics; however, by the next year, they are pretty much forgotten. This year, there are a number of new names that are generating a lot of buzz, as well as some old, familiar ones. Awards season will be coming soon and it looks like it will be a tight race. The Academy hasn’t yet announced its nominations, but we have a pretty good idea who we expect to be nominated. Here is Fame10’s list of the 7 most outstanding movie actors of 2014!
7. Ethan Hawke
Ethan Hawke is an actor who has never really been interested in mainstream success. He sticks to theatre, novel writing, directing, screenplay writing and, when it comes to films, he mostly gets involved in Indie films. In spite of his obvious talents, he’s only been nominated for one Academy Award for his acting and that was for his supporting role in “Training Day.” He’s received two other Academy Award nominations for his screenplay writing.
Right now, there is a lot of buzz around Hawke and his performance in the technologically groundbreaking film “Boyhood.” So far, he has been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of the charming but unreliable father in the film. Some predict that he will be a contender at the 2015 Academy Awards and they’re probably right. He gave a standout performance and is probably due for some recognition.andersphoto / Shutterstock.com
