Best Actor 1928
Emil Jannings in The Last Command
Emil Jannings in The Way of All Flesh
Richard Barthelmess in The Noose
Richard Barthelmess in The Patent Leather Kid
And Sort of Charlie Chaplin in The Circus
The Way of all Flesh is lost, and both of Barthelmess's films seem to be obscure archive only. Chaplin was nominated apparently but they took him out of the competition and gave him an honorary award instead. I myself will include him since he was sort of nominated and also so there will be an actual competition. I will come back to this year if I ever happen to come across one of those archives or if a copy of The Way of All Flesh is miraculously found but I doubt either of these things will occur anytime soon, so I will do this year as is anyways.
Therefore it is between Jannings in The Last Command or Chaplin in The Circus. Who do you Pick? Who do you predict?
