5. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – RJ Cyler
For delicacy and candidness and pulling it off in only his first film.
4. Mad Max: Fury Road – Nicholas Hoult
For a remarkable mix of derangement and vulnerability. Of all the film's wacky characters, it's Nux that resonates the most for me.
3. Sicario – Benicio Del Toro
For the year's most terrifying turn. The more he lets us know, the less we trust.
2. Carol – Kyle Chandler
For heartbreaking susceptibility. Not once do we not comprehend his point of view.
1. Steve Jobs – Seth Rogen
For the year's most underrated performance. He pulls off an exquisite mix of temperament, physique and amenability with tangible serenity.
