Hoskins was one note cockney, Newman was fine in a terrible film, havnt seen Gordon,, its a two horse race I feel between Hurt and Woods,, I think Woods will take it

No idea, I have only seen Hurt.

Not a great year, but my vote would be between Hoskins and Newman. Gary Oldman gave the best performance for Sid and Nancy and unfortunately wasnt nominated

Predictions (random):
1)Hoskins
2)Hurt
3)Newman
4)Woods
5)Gordon

A poor year no room for harrison ford of jeff goldblum,my choice is hoskins but it is a type he plays so i don't know in hindsight whether woods or hurt are better,gordon i did not like and newman was way better before and after.

RatedRStar said...

Agree that Jeff Goldblum in the Fly and Harrison Ford in The Mosquito Coast should have been nominated over newman and possibly gordon who I'm not confident about.

1.Woods
2.Hurt
3.Hoskins
4.Newman
5.Gordon

I keep switching James Woods and William Hurt however, Woods for his energy in a bad film, and Hurt for his charm and skill with Marlee Matlin =D

I find william hurt v sexy in the 80;s.

RatedRStar said...

Agreed lol, not in Kiss of the spider Woman though lol even though (debatable) I think his performance in Kiss was the best gay performance Ive ever seen lol
