Best Local Actor 


WINNER: Tommy Lee Jones

> He might have a reputation around town for being a bit of a curmudgeon, but there's no denying Tommy Lee Jones is in the top tier of veteran actors working in Hollywood today. From his Academy Award-winning role in 1993's The Fugitive, to mainstream fare like the Men in Black franchise, to his underappreciated work in The Homesman and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Jones, who turns 70 this year, is an icon. In 2016, fans can see him in three new films: Criminal, Jason Bourne and Mechanic: Resurrection. And everyone, please, leave the man alone if you see him out at dinner. He's not interested in being a celebrity. "He's pure Texas," Boyhood actor and friend Richard Jones (no relation) told the San Antonio Current last year about TLJ. "Texans can be very generous and show off their Southern manners. They can also tell you to get off their property."
