Re: Hilary Swank or Charlize Theron? Who had the better oscars winning performance

I havent seen Boys Dont Cry but I have seen Monster... It was AWESOME!! So Im voting for Charlize. Hilary is a great actress too so I will have to watch Boys Dont Cry.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I felt like crap after watching Monster too... That poor woman If she have had a good life and good parents she wouldnt have been an assassin, she could have been a gorgeous actress for example




In all seriousness though it was all very sad. If people like these received psychological support in time...

I've seen both movies and Theron's was 10 times better than Swank's.

Actually i think Hilary's Oscar winning performance in Million Dollar Baby was better than her BDC performance.

Anyone else agree with me ?

OMG Thank you! Talk about a massively overrated performance. Kinda like Sandra winning for Blind Side. But I like Sandra so it's ok.

Back to the topic, I preferred Hilary's.

Both are lacklustre and certainly not A listers, but Theron for at least acting in Monster.

Re: Hilary Swank or Charlize Theron? Who had the better oscars winning performance

The following list shows my point of view.

2011: Natalie Portman – Black Swan
2004: Charlize Theron – Monster
2009: Kate Winslet – The Reader
2003: Nicole Kidman – The Hours
2012: Meryl Streep – The Iron Lady
2008: Marion Cotillard – La Vie en Rose
2006: Reese Witherspoon – Walk the Line
2005: Hilary Swank – Million Dollar Baby
2007: Helen Mirren – The Queen
2002: Halle Berry – Monster's Ball
2010: Sandra Bullock – The Blind Side

To me, Kate's acting in Littile Childern and Revolutionary Road deserved spots on Top 10 of best acting list of decade.
Sandra won with the most "wickest" acting from those above.
