This looks like a really strong line-up. I don't mind Borgnine's win, her was pretty good. I think you will go with Dean, maybe with Tracy.

Borgine will win, I feel. Don't know anything about this year though!

I thought 1937 won the vote?

Anyways, I've been leaning towards James Dean's over-the-topness in East Of Eden lately...but Borgnine was fantastic of course.

My ranking:
1. James Dean
2. Ernest Borgnine
3. Spencer Tracy
4. Frank Sinatra

Never seen James Cagney's film.

It was close but 55 pulled up in the final moments.

I predict Ernie :)

I really hope that Borgnine wins this. He should take this very easily. He's so damn heartbreaking, real and very-very touching. My Top 10 member. I disliked Dean and his movie. He was just doing a weak imitation of Brando. And that jus sums up Dean's carreer.

Oh, predictions...
