Best Actor – 2014 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards
The 2014 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards have arrived, and we are celebrating all of the awesome things that have happened in entertainment this year. Here, we’re looking at the Best Actor category, and need your help to choose the best male actor of the year.
Here are the nominees:
It was a great year for Leonardo DiCaprio, who not only starred as the incomparable Jay Gatsby in ‘The Great Gatsby,’ but is also receiving some serious buzz for his role as corrupt stockbroker Jordan Belfort in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ His longtime pal Tobey Maguire had a pretty good year in film as well, joining forces with DiCaprio in ‘Gatsby’ as narrator Nick Carroway, and later with a role in the Kate Winslet drama ‘Labor Pains.’
The Hemsworth brothers were also big names in film this year, with big brother Chris Hemsworth starring in the action-packed ‘Rush’ and reprising his role as the larger-than-life ‘Thor,’ while younger brother Liam Hemsworth ended his engagement to Miley Cyrus but continued to woo Katniss Everdeen as Gale in ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.’
Speaking of ‘Catching Fire,’ Josh Hutcherson shined as Peeta in the second installment of the series, which saw him have a more prominent role and a bigger opportunity to showcase his acting chops.
Bradley Cooper’s name was also on everyone’s lips this year, most recently with his incredible performance in the dramatic ‘American Hustle’ – a vast departure from his role as Phil in the final installment of ‘The Hangover’ trilogy, which came out this summer. James Franco, too, had an eclectic resume this year: playing everyone from The Wizard of Oz in ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ to Hugh Hefner in ‘Lovelace’ to an outrageous parody of himself in the Judd Apatow comedy ‘This Is the End.’
Robert Downey, Jr. once again brought the superhero action as the titular character in ‘Iron Man 3.’ And, not to be forgotten, hottie Ian Somerhalder heated up the small screen as sexy vampire Damon on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ which saw its fifth season this year.
