6. Clint Eastwood, "Million Dollar Baby" (2004)
Eastwood directed himself to his finest performance in 2004's sneak-attack Oscar hog. Co-stars Hillary Swank and Morgan Freeman won Oscars while Eastwood settled for just a nomination, but he was more deserving than them. It's a fine, complex turn that unfortunately suffers (along with the film) under the weight of third act tonal folly. The movie: almost. The performance: fantastic.
