The 20 Best Performances of 2010

Christian Bale

No. 2. Christian Bale, The Fighter

In the final moments of The Fighter, director David O. Russell shows footage of the real Dicky Eklund, proving that Christian Bale nailed his part so well he could actually be the real guy. In the movie, Bale delivers a tragically flawed performance as a drug-inflicted former boxer living vicariously through his younger brother, for better or worse.
