favorite boy actors year by year

Going backwards, starting with 2008. Nobody post more than one at a time. I'll let someone else post the first one since I've hardly seen any films this year. Huh

Sounds like fun.

Just to clarify: Someone posts favourite 2008 boy performance, then the next person posts favourite performance from 2007, then 2006, etc? Did I get that right?

If so, I'll start with:

2008: Antoine L'Écuyer in C'est pas moi, je le jure!

What if we don't agree     Smiley

So I'm stuck with 2006, pretty easy choice:

Janus Dissing Rathke
Drømmen (2006) aka We Shall Overcome

I think it's okay to comment on other people's choices if we disagree or agree, as long as we then move on and pick a winner for the next year.

2005: Freddie Highmore in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

(I was tempted to pick Owen Kline in The Squid and the Whale, which I think is a performance in a better film, but Freddie wins for his overwhelming charisma and likability.)

Of course you're free to comment on the choices and offer alternate ones. The more discussion the merrier. But anyway, on to...

2004-Chase Ellison, "Mysterious Skin"

2001: Tamás Mészáros in "Abandoned"

other considerations:
Haley Joel Osment  AI      
Anton Yelchin  Hearts in Atlantis      
Trevor Morgan  The Glass House
Matthew O'Leary  Domestic disturbance
Nicholas Braun  Walter and Henry


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
for 2005, I'd agree with Josephk re Freddie Highmore.

I would have chosen Yuya Yagira  "Nobody knows" for 2004
or Áslákur Ingvarsson  in "Cold Light".

for 2003 I'd have chosen Sergiusz Zymelka  in "Where Eskimos Live"

for 2002 Mark Rendall  in " The Interrogation of Michael Crowe" or
Seung-ho Yoo  in  "The Way Home"  (Sth Korea)
Nicholas Hoult  in "About a Boy"      would probably be my third choice.

2001 I might have taken Paul Franklin Dano but Tamás Mészáros would have been my second choice.

I have Sergiusz Zymelka as my top pic in 2002 over Aaron Johnson.

2003 was really tough for me but I would have taken Ivan Dobronravov over Manuel Lozano, Jeremy Sumpter, Frederik Christian Johansen and Charlie Trairat. Honorable mentions would go out to supporting actors Frederick Lau and Félix López.

2004 was another toughie but I would have selected Marko Kovacevic over Adam Butcher, Jack McElhone and Alexander Nathan Etel.

2005 I would have taken Aaron Webber over Piotr Jagielski, Kolya Spiridonov, Freddie Highmore and Sasha Yakin

2006 Janus Dissing Rathke is a no brainer here.

2008 has been a down year in quality from what I've seen so far, but right now my choice would be between Kåre Hedebrant (Låt den rätte komma in) and Hampus Johansson (Ping-pongkingen).

Good call. Didn't think of that one.

Oh, I gotta change my answer for 2008. I forgot about Let the Right One In.

So my vote goes to Kare Hedebrant instead of Antoine L'Écuyer. Both are amazing, though.
