I am not a huge fan of The Rocky Horror Show however, even though I thought Curry was great though and um, kind of sexy lol haha.

Hackman wont win this one. It is a terrific performance but not his best.

TMWWBK is a great movie, but not quite an acting showcase (as I recall). I'm not sure what Louis' opinion of NIGHT MOVES is (I had more mixed feelings than most, but that doesn't prove anything), so here goes:

1. Scheider
2. Hackman
3. Caine
4. Connery
5. Curry

I will say that I will be surprised and pretty angry if Pacino doesn't remain the winner.

I hope it's not too late to change my predictions even after Scheider's already been posted:
1. Caine
2. Connery
3. Scheider
4. Hackman
5. Curry
