You're an O'Neill drama, you're Whistler's mama, you're camembert

The New York Times Magazine has published some KEEN photos of actors it's deemed to have delivered some of the best performances of the year. Some cool stuff. Some hawt guys (Heath, above) and girls. And behold the power of filters and photoshop as you gaze at Shirley MacLaine. Love her, don't get me wrong, but her face normally looks like your linen pants after they've been bunched around you ankles for 15 minutes in the alley behind the bar. I love the shots of Viggo Mortenson (below) and William Hurt, lauded for their performances in A History of Violence. Great movie, as I've mentioned. It's out on video next month, so by all means check it out if you haven't. It looks at what we all may be capable of given the right circumstances and whether people change or just express different aspects of themselves to different degrees at different times. Wonderful. Viggo is awesome. William Hurt is awesome. Maria Bello is via D-Listed

I saw this on DListed earlier today. Very cool pics! Love the one of Joseph Gordon Levitt, although as usual he looks like he could use a box of 24 Krispy Kremes.

That is a nice pic of him, Andrew, but it actually took me a few seconds to figure out where I knew him from. Too thin? I appreciate the chunk too, but I think he looks good. Boys aren't my thing, though.

There are some interesting photos in there, Paul. I think Heath Ledger's is hawwt.
