Both Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman deserve Oscars for The Master. Hell, Amy Adams deserves a Supporting Actress award, because she totally steals the few scenes she was in.
I think that talking about Best Actor is a moot point this year, though. Daniel Day Lewis is playing Abraham Lincoln. Game over, man.
re: paragraph 1...see that shit. Definitely see that shit.
re: paragraph 2...yeah, PSH and Amy Adams were both fanfuckingtastic in "Doubt" a few years back too, but were probably overshadowed a bit by the hype surrounding Streep's performance (which was also outstanding). They both deserve Oscar nods at some point for sure.
re: paragraph 3...Yeah, you're probably right. Daniel Day Lewis is the fucking man.
You'll see what I mean about JG though.
