The Whopper Awards 2006 - Part 1

You've all waited a year for these. Now the wait is over. Here begins the 2nd Annual Whopper Awards for the productions of 2006. I've made some refinements to the categories since last year, but time constraints mean I will need to spread them out until Thursday Jan 11th at the earliest.

Now without further ado:

The Nominees for Best Actor In A Dramatic Role:
Eric Bana (Munich)
Will Ferell - (Stranger Than Fiction)
Kiefer Sutherland (24)
Bruce Willis (16 Blocks)

And the winner is: Will Ferell who proves he’s not just an idiot-funnyman in Stranger Than Fiction, an extraordinary film in which he expertly plays Harold Crick a man who can hear a narrator’s voice in his head who tells him he’s going to die – and I thought I was the only one who suffered from that :) While I hope that Ferell continues in his comedy endevours, it’s nice to know that that he can out-act the best of them elsewhere.

The Nominees for Best Actor In An Action Role:
David Belle (District B13)
Daniel Craig (Casino Royale)
Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes On A Plane)
Jason Stratham (Crank)

Being French doesn’t disclude free-runner David Belle from a nomination, but I doubt anyone will argue with the winner: Daniel Craig who reigns suprememe over Sam Jackson or 2005’s Whopper Jason Stratham. Craig re-invented Bond and made him his own- he’s nothing like anyone you’ve ever seen as a 007 before, sometimes even to the point where you are questioning if you’re actually watching Bond at all. He's come a long way since his appearences in Young Indiana Jones, I hope he keeps it up.

Tomorrow: The Best Actresses...

Hang On I used to watch Indiana Jones , what famous person in history did he portray poorly?(Not criticising Mr Craig , but Young Jones would run into people like Sigmund Freud,Tolstoy,Al Capone hell he even met Sean lemass and WB Yeats?!?!?!)

I assume he was some made-up german goon: Captain Schiller, head of German intelligence. Utterly forgettable (I had to look it up).

Bizarrely in that show , the Young Indiana met up with Paul Freeman (Belloq in Raiders) in a completely different role during ww1 , for me thats where the show got silly.
