I fear Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon isnt on this list, even with my high vote... way way way not enough people here have seen that movie and performance. Got snubbed from AFI, KJs list, now probably best performances.

One per 4 mins? That'd be another couple of hours.

Yes for Ledger. Totally awesome in Brokeback, he made and carried it. Shouldve beat PSH, as much as I love the latter actor.

Wow, I didn't think Ledger had the support to top Ganz. Another good 2005 choice, though Terrence Howard was my #1 pick for that year.

Doubt it, at the very least the 70s gang De Niro, Pacino, Hoffman, Nicholson, etc. should start coming in with strides soon.

Kate Winslet, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)


Two people voted Kate but not Carrey, one the other way, and the rest all had both. One point fewer for Kate, they would've been next to each other on the list.

But hopefully we could make you leave with some satisfaction. :)

Kate! :happy:

I think Nicholson should at least make it again for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and Gone with the Winfd duo should also be up there (I'm sure they'll have plenty of 21-100 mentions).

Wait, did Delpy beat Kate... or is she just not on the list

Either way, her being this high or Hawke beating her is a big surprise

Robert DeNiro, Raging Bull (1980)


Deserving; made an otherwise merely good film.

I had her in the Top 20 and not Carrey, that sealed it. She's awesome in that film

Hmm, thought De Niro in RB would be higher... must be really tough competition. Surprised but agree with his Taxi Driver work getting the leg up on it.

I put Hawke in my top ten which probably made a big difference.

It's a good performance by Bale, probably wouldn't have it so high, though.
