Best and Worst : Who gave the better performance?

Who gave the better performance?

Upon multiple viewings of 12 Years A Slave(2013) and Inside Llewyn Davis(2013) I have a hard time deciding who gave a better performance

Oscar Isaac or Chiwetel Ejiofor


Or do you think someone else gave a better performance in 2013?

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Lupita Nyong'o

But between those two?

Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Chiwetel Ejiofor, imo.

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Both were excellent - but Isaac's is among the greatest leading performances of teh last few years IMO.

Re: Who gave the better performance?

I agree, what does imo stand for

Re: Who gave the better performance?

in my opinion

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Isaac because it was as if that role was meant for him. That being said, Ejiofor was exceptional in 12 Years a Slave.


Nothing is as it seems so I wouldn't judge by what you think you see.

Re: Who gave the better performance?

hands down Chiwetel Ejiofor

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Chiwetel Ejiofor

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Chiwetel

Re: Who gave the better performance?

Chiwetel Ejiofor

Why so serious?

Re: Who gave the better performance?

That is a severely difficult question, considering the contrasting nature of both films. But if a choice had to be made, I'd have to say Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years A Slave, the film just hit harder than the Coen Bros that year, and Ejiofor's performance is bone-chillingly authentic and almost impossible to watch without getting choked up. Isaac was fantastic, though not quite with the same raw intensity as Ejiofor.
