Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a 2002 Film

Third Annual Cosmique Movie Awards


Awarded to the actor deemed by Cosmo voters to have achieved the best performance in a leading role an eligible 2002 film. Cosmo voters must carefully decide whether the performance was in a leading or supporting capacity. Not all films will have both a male and a female lead, and it is theoretically possible in ensemble films for every role to be considered a supporting role. It is theoretically possible for an actor to be nominated in both leading and supporting categories for the same performance - as Richard Gere has now proven with Chicago.
