Benicio Del Toro

Dark Horse Lead Actor: 'Things We Lost in the Fire'

Why: Does a tree make a noise falling in the forest if nobody is there to hear it? Can an actor receive a nom for a movie that nobody saw? “Fire” never even smoldered at the multiplex, earning a paltry $3 million — astonishing for a film that starred two Oscar winners who both gave worthy performances. It’s hard to know what that says about the careers of Del Toro and Halle Berry — or maybe the film itself — but the former should be proud of his work here as David Duchovny’s drug-addicted best friend who suffers a tragic loss when his support system is taken away.
