Oscar Winning Actors

"The Aviator" starring: Academy Award Winner Cate Blanchett

In this somber biopic of the life of Katharine Hepburn, Cate Blanchett's thrilling performance throws the viewer back in time to the early 20th century. Despite the lackluster performance of the supporting cast, I believe Blanchett's Oscar level acting abilities are the shining light of this little known gem. Trailer:

"Catch Me If You Can" starring: Academy Award Winner Tom Hanks

After his Best Actor winning performance in Forrest Gump, Hanks chose to steer his career towards less "larger than life" characters. In this often overlooked film, Hanks plays Carl Hanratty, a hotshot law enforcement agent struggling to catch his man. Like the character, Hanks was the sole "hotshot" of this film, being the only noteworthy performer, but don't let that keep you from checking out this great film. Trailer:

"The Departed" starring: Academy Award Winner Jack Nicholson

Jack Nicholson stars as Frank Costello, an eccentric, yet loveable mob boss navigating the choppy seas of honor and deceit in this oft forgotten 2006 film. Nicholson's portrayal of the affable king pin admittedly carries the film, which is otherwise populated by nobodies. Trailer:

"J. Edgar" starring: Academy Award Winner Judi Dench

Here, Judi Dench stars as a mother struggling to come to terms with her cross dressing son. A quick IMDB search can turn up more on the supporting cast, but needless to day, her award winning acting chops truly turned this otherwise fleeting cinematic footnote into a memorable journey. Trailer:

"Gangs of New York" starring: Academy Award Winner Daniel Day-Lewis

Day-Lewis' acting abilities need no introduction, and in this quaint 2002 period piece, his rightfully lauded performing abilities once again make for an incredibly immersive jaunt through 19th century New York. Be sure not to miss Academy Award Nominee John C. Reilly in a supporting role! Trailer:
