Rooney Mara as the Sociopath Watch the video»

On portraying Alex from ‘‘A Clockwork Orange’’: ‘‘There is something off about Alex, something slightly androgynous and something much more fascinating and complex than simply a ‘villain.’ I also knew it would save me time in hair and makeup with only having to apply one fake eyelash.’’

Average listal rating (1625 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 0
Gary Oldman as the Menacing Dummy Watch the video»

Mia Wasikowska as the Home Wrecker Watch the video»

Average listal rating (914 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 0
Ryan Gosling as the Invisible Man Watch the video»

On invisibility: ‘‘I don’t really know if the Invisible Man is a villain or not, but I just don’t trust the guy. He says he’s going to be somewhere, but never shows up. Even when he does show up, he’s only ever kind of there. Yeah, that’s right, Invisible Man, I’m looking at you. In your face! That is your face, right?’’

Best Performances in 2011: “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “Drive,” “The Ides of March”

George Clooney as the Tyrant Watch the video»

Lazward's rating:
Average listal rating (144 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0

Best Performance in 2011: “Melancholia”

Michael Shannon as the Tycoon Watch the video»
On playing a 1-percenter: ‘‘Obviously there’s a lot of animosity toward Wall Street right now, so this seemed like good timing. I can’t say I’m a big fan of Wall Street myself — not the movie, but the actual thing.’’

Best Performance in 2011: “Take Shelter”

Jessica Chastain as the Fire Starter Watch the video»
On what she was thinking: ‘‘I was channeling loneliness. . . . The idea of feeling invisible. And because of that, it creates a burn in her to be noticed, even if by doing harm.’’

Jean Dujardinas as the Hothead Watch the video»

Best Performance in 2011: “The Artist”
Adepero Oduye as the Outlaw Watch the video»

On channeling Bonnie Parker: ‘‘I had this feeling like it was a standoff. And how when you’re putting on a brave front, and you’re acting all tough, that moment comes when you know it’s all over and you’re about to die.’’

Best Performance in 2011: “Pariah”

Average listal rating (459 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 0
Glenn Close as the Vamp Watch the video»

On Theda Bara, silent-movie star: ‘‘They say that she was the first goth, and that because of her the word ‘vamp’ came into the lexicon. A vamp is a bad woman, a dangerous woman. I’ve always been fascinated by that.’’
