Seconded. Christoph Waltz's performance in Inglourious Basterds should be added, too.

Tom Hardy's performance in Bronson is better than a lot of performances in the latter 50 of the 1990-Present list.

Yes he is.

Pacino and Norton shouldn't be top ten, Ray and The Pianist are better for that, and Pirates and TDK could be way higher.
