Dallas Buyers Club
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both give jaw-dropping performances in Dallas Buyers Club. McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, an electrician and hustler whose reckless lifestyle in 1985 Dallas gets turned around completely when he is diagnosed with HIV. Woodroof manages to turn this tragedy into an opportunity to fight for justice against the health care industry and deliver proper medication to others suffering from AIDS. McConaughey and Leto are both nominated for their performances, with Dallas Buyers Club also receiving nods for Film Editing, Makeup & Hairstyling, and Original Screenplay.
