It should be between Dean Stockwell and Alec Guinness. I hope Stockwell wins; he's my winner that year.

Guinness for me.

Kline is amazing! But I haven't seen any of the others, so I'm not even going to attempt a prediction.

Yaaaaay! I love A Fish Called Wanda and Kline was really great though I prefer Michael Palin from the same movie.

I haven't seen Guinness and Landau, but from the other three I would pick Phoenix.

Isn't Little Dorrit a 4 hour long film? Sigh. I don't think I'd have the patience to watch it. Good luck!

I liked Kline's character and I guess I'm glad he won the Oscar, rare for a comedy performance. Stockwell was also comedic but more supporting I'd say than Kline who was almost a lead.

Actually Little Dorrit is over six hours long.

dshultz said...

Isn't it actually like a tv movie? I don't know, I saw the whole thing online.

Louis Morgan said...

I was shown in theaters first or else Guinness could not have been nominated. It was shown both in two part form, and apparently the whole over six hour form as well.

dshultz said...

oh, well. That must have been something to sit through. But, for me, because of Guinness, I manage it. In stages. :)
