Pfft, the only choice is the one I think who deserved it, Paul Lukas.
I feel I should apologize for not doing 2008 supporting since I said I would, I just won't be getting back to supporting for awhile because I find I enjoy doing lead far more.
I've seen Madame Curie dozens of times because I showed it in my early Chemistry classes. I always loved Walter P's performance, but I have seen Paul Lucas' performance, too several times, and always thought he deserved his Oscar.
Mmh, I have a feeling you won't go with the popular choice (Bogart) but rather with Lukas. This is one of my favorite Cooper-performances.
I've seen "Casablanca", once, and I kind of didn't like it. It's solid and everything, but my God it was boring. It's one of those movies where you want to go into it and join the rest of the diehard fans then only to be underwhelmed by it. Same goes for Bogart's performance. He dominates and everything, but he's one of the most emotionally withdrawn Golden Age actors I've seen. He's cool, but he didn't make me care much more about what was happening.Who knows, maybe I'll really like it if I see it again...but the first time always leaves that impression...
Wow, this was a great year for Hungary. Paul Lukas, a Hungarian actor won and Michael Curtiz, the director of Casablanca. Paul Lukas is definitely not the most iconic Hungarian actor of that era, though.Predictions:1)Lukas2)Bogart3)Pidgeon4)Rooney5)Cooper
I'll predict Lucas or Bogart, seen Casablanca, but didn't love it that much.
