Murray underacted.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Um... I voted for Giamatti. But I'm much less disappointed with Murray winning here than I am with Watts losing in female performance...
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I've explained this many a time. Murray's performance is so much less noticeable because you never fully realize he's even acting. That's what it's all about. Penn's performance was powerful, don't get me wrong. But Murray's had so much subtlety and was more like how a person of his age would behave. Crying and yelling doesn't make a performance great, necessarily.

Del Toro gave the best performance of the entire cast of "21 Grams" and possibly of his career.
