AFT Awards: Best Limited Performance – Male

This is the twentieth category of the 4th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category. Due to a surplus of nominees this year, I’ve decided to split it into two categories, male and female.

The winner:
Ted Levine (Shutter Island) was the perfect degree of mysterious and chilling as a very creepy security guard.

Other nominees:
Hiroyuki Sanada (The City of Your Final Destination) did a marvelous job of conveying humility and gratitude in the midst of extreme wealth and comfort. Garrett Dillahunt (Winter’s Bone) provided a cautionary voice of reason and safety net amid dangerous characters. Jackie Early Haley (Shutter Island) played a volatile prisoner whose insanity may not have been entirely an act. Campbell Scott (Handsome Harry) was subdued, heartbreaking, and most of all forgiving as a man whose life was affected by a cruel act.
