While he did do a great job, I'll say it again, EVERYONE did an insanely good job in that movie, and picking out one actor from that movie for a best performance oscar would be saying the performances by the other actors (Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Bernard Shaw, Christopher Lee, etc...) weren't as important...it was just too big a cast to single out a best performance.
By the way, did you know the dude who plays Theoden (Bernard Shaw) was the Explosives-making comic relief man in "The Scorpion King"?
