Shepard for the win! I felt that his quiet acting style was perfect for Yeager. I've also seen Lithgow and Nicholson. Lithgow didn't have enough time onscreen for me and he didn't do a whole lot with it. Nicholson was just doing his usual boisterous arrogant guy, a role that he's great at but that he succeeded at far better in several other movies. The other two don't look/sound like they'd impress me that much. My guess:1. Sam Shepard2. Jack Nicholson3. Charles Durning4. John Lithgow5. Rip TornDeserving: Ed Harris in The Right Stuff; perhaps also Dennis Quaid in TRS
So, I guess you're leaving the best winner of all time (Karl Malden in 1951) for last!! :)

No idea who will get it. :)Predictions:1.Nicholson2.Shepard3.Durning4.Torn5.Lithgow
This doesnt seem like a bad year to be fair =) Lithgow was fine but not given enough 2 do.
Neither of the Terms boys or Rip Torn really impressed me (or appalled me), so I'm expecting a Durning/Shepherd win. You do love Jack though.

I've only seen Shepard and Nicholson, but as others have already said, Nicholson is doing his usually, albeit entertaining, shtick. Shepard was very compelling for me. Great movie too.
Sam Shepards performance is the definition of badass =)
