So, you've finally made it to the very last year :)

My prediction:

1.Burns - The only one I haven't seen, but I have a feeling he'll be your pick :)
2.Meredith - a truly heartbreaking performance, my personal favourite - if there's anyone who can threaten Burns, it is him
3.Sarandon - quite effective in his one-scene performance
4.Dourif - he was also really good, although he was reduced to the background most of the film, except his final scenes, where he really shines
5.Warden - I have no idea what to make of his performance: he tries to be feisty, funny and charmingly naive at the same time, but it simply doesn't work

Not a single bad performance here in my opinion. Burns was excellent, Burgess was pretty good, Sarandon and Dourif are good for the time their given, Warden was ok.

1.George Burns
2.Burgess Meredith
3.Chris Sarandon
4.Brad Dourif
5.Jack Warden

I forgot I have also seen Shampoo, but a long time ago and I don't remember anything from Warden's performance... :)

Robert Shaw should have been nominated for Jaws, in fact, I might have given him the win for it.

My favorite is Dourif. I think your #1 will be Dourif or Burns.

Great job with these Louis. My pick is Dourif

Louis I requested that someone upload Come Fill the Cup on YouTube and they did:

Hope this works (second try lol).

3. Sarandon
4. Meredith
5. Warden

Derek: Thanks a million! I will postpone 75 until I review Young.

Dourif definitely! What a terrific performance! I think Sarandon was good but annoying and I think you'll choose Burns.

So sad this is the last year :(

I've seen Dourif, Sarandon, and Warden and at this point pick Sarandon. I just don't remember OFOTCN enough and I DESPISE Shampoo.

RatedRStar said...

actually I'm gonna change, Sarandon was pretty damn good (even if it was for two brief scenes).

1)George Burns
2)Chris Sarandon
3)Burgess Meredith
4)Brad Dourif
5)Jack Warden

Very sad that this is your last year. :(

But I'll just enjoy your reviews, I guess. :) I don't know whom I would pick. I found Sarandon absolutely amazing when I saw him about three years ago. However, Burns was excellent as well. I also liked Warden and (especially) Dourif, too.

Predictions:
1)Burns
2)Dourif
3)Sarandon
4)Warden
5)Meredith
