Hopefully De Niro, but Voight was tremendous in Coming Home. Either one of these guys would be a great pick

I'm no fan of Fonda in Coming Home but Voigt was fantastic! But DeNiro was amazing, too.

I think Voight will win, De Niro was great but overacted in some moments plus I thought he was outshined by Walken.

1) Voight
2) De Niro
3) Olivier
4) Busey
5) Beatty

De Niro, easily...

Voight for me. I thought Jane Fonda is also superb in Coming Home and their chemistry... it's astonishing. They worked brilliantly together. :) De Niro is great, too.

Predictions:
1)Voight
2)De Niro
3)Olivier
4)Busey
5)Beatty

Definitely Voight deserves this, I don't understand the love for De Niro's performance, I thought it was OK. Beatty will be last for sure because you hate him and Olivier may be a surprise since you love him.

I have only seen Voight, De Niro and Beatty and Voight is the best and De Niro is the worst. But your pick will probably be:

1) Jon Voight
2) Robert De Niro
3) Laurence Olivier
4) Gary Busey
5) Warren Beatty

Gregory Peck should have been nominated for The Boys from Brazil, simply a fantastic performance. Either De Niro or Voight for me, I don't feel like choosing.

Only seen De Niro and Voight, and thought that Voight was leagues better here. De Niro was good too, though. Really interested to watch Busey pre-crazy though.
