One of the rarer awards we give out in the Year End Awards is the Expendables Award for Acting Excellence. Given to the members of the cast of the Expendables for a role in a movie where they have done more than just cash a paycheck, where they have actually shown some acting chops.
We have only given three of these out so far in the history of the EYG Year End Awards, with none presented last year. This year, we give out the fourth total and second individual to this cast member.
In 2015, he won a Best Performance by an Expendable as an Actor in a Motion Picture for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and this year he receives his second Expendable award, this time…
Best Performance by an Expendable as a Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as Rick Deckard in Blade Runner 2049. That is right… it is Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford did more than just go through the motions in Blade Runner 2049. He was compelling and dramatic and carried a great deal of the story with him in the second half of the movie. He was the emotional center of the story and he deserves this award for the performance.
