AFT Awards: Best Limited Performance

This is the eighteenth category of the 6th 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, which in the past has been split into male and female.

The winner:
James Badge Dale (Flight) was haunting in just one short scene as a patient dying of cancer with words of wisdom for Denzel Washington’s Whip and Kelly Reilly’s Nicole.

Other nominees:
Mark Strong (Zero Dark Thirty), a nominee in this category last year, shone as a hotheaded government employee dealing with bureaucracy and the war on terror. Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas (Ruby Sparks) were the perfect complements to the younger generation as the eccentric parental unit of author Calvin. Diane Farr (About Cherry) was formidable as Heather Graham’s better and less forgiving half.
