2013 End Of The Year Awards- Best Performance From A Leading Actor- Matthew McConaughey- Dallas Buyers Club


"Let me give y'all a little news flash. There ain't nothin' out there can kill f*****' Ron Woodroof in 30 days."

McConaughey's impressive physical transformation for his portrayal of Ron Woodroof? That's just the tip of the iceberg for his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey is a fiery, hateful, and homophobic man, who indulges in an destructive lifestyle, but he slowly changes his tune after a doctor diagnoses Ron with AIDS.

McConaughey shows a more caring side for Ron during his scenes with Jared Leto's Rayon, and you see a man, who's willing to do anything to fight for his life. Woodroof turns the corner, and McConaughey's visible emotional distress for Ron's inescapable plight is believable, because you can feel and see the pain for a man, who's running out of time.

McConaughey is great in Dallas Buyers Club, and I'm not trying to take anything away from him, but Jared Leto's fantastic performance fuels McConaughey's Woodroof. Remember, Rayon willingly befriended a reluctant Ron. After a while, Ron lowered his guard, and he changed his hateful views. On the flip side of that, Ron urges Rayon to eat healthier foods and quit drugs. Leto is McConaughey's foil, and it's an impressive dynamic, when you sit back and look at the big picture, because McConaughey and Leto feed off of each other to deliver two Oscar-winning performances.

Dallas Buyers Club is an important milestone for Matthew McConaughey's career. McConaughey is someone, who's loaded with talent, but he hit a few rough spots in his career with some awful films (Surfer, Dude, Failure To Launch, Fool's Good, etc.), and that's why his recent 180 over the past couple of years is so impressive. McConaughey was an easy target for jokes and ridicule, but now he's an Oscar-winner, who's on an unbelievable hot streak with consistent, high quality performances.
