Best Actor 1930

And the Nominees Were:

Ronald Colman in Bulldog Drummond

Ronald Colman in Condemned

George Arliss in The Green Goddess 

George Arliss in Disraeli

Maurice Chevalier in The Big Pond

Maurice Chevalier in The Love Parade

Wallace Beery in The Big House

Lawrence Tibbett in The Rogue Song

That's right eight nominations total. Unfortunately though since only two short clips of Tibbett's performance survive so I will only be doing a very brief review of his performance that will not be ranked with the others, or rated.

I remember this, actors used to be nominated for an entire year's body of work, not just one film. This will be sort of odd.

This year actually seemed like they were nominated for each performance though, since George Arliss only won for one of his performances.

I don't know what to think. I'd rather not predict. :)

Come on Dinasztie give it try.:)

Wow, a lot of work for this year! I haven't seen any but I'm really interested in seeing your reviews, especially Colman's who I think was a fantastic actor!
