I'm still looking back to 2014 and all the great actors and actresses of that year. Some stood out more than others. Here are my favorite actors and actresses of 2014.
5. Jennifer Lawrence
Nominated for an Academy Award again for her role in “American Hustle” and she was in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. She played Katniss Everdeen again in the third installement of “The Hunger Games” series and she got a hit with the song “The Hanging Tree”. And and didn’t even mention all the other awesome stuff she said and did in interviews and talk shows.
4. Rosamund Pike
Finally she got the role she deserved. In “Gone Girl” she nailed it, she was definitely the best bit of the film.
3. Michael Fassbender
He was in “12 Years a Slave” and I really wanted to whip him. His performance was so good, he played a convincingly good bad guy. Then there was “Frank” and off course “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. He’s had a pretty good year.
2. Matthew McConaughey
Okay, I used to be critical. I didn’t think much of McConaughey, he made some bad movies. But ever since “The Lincoln Lawyer” I started to like him more and more. Now, I think he was one of the best actors of his generation. In 2014 he won an Acadamy Award for his wonderful performance in “Dallas Buyers Club” and also hit theaters with “Interstellar”. But for me the highlight is “True Detective”, what an awesome show!
1. Chris Pratt
He had a small role in “Her”, voiced for the awesome “The Lego Movie” and finished of with the coolest movie of 2014: “The Guardians of the Galaxy”. Chris Pratt is also coming with “Jurassic World” in 2015, so Pratt is without a doubt my favourite star of 2014.
