Lezlie said...

Ah, two Hungarian nominees, makin' me proud :)

1. Peter Lorre
2. Edward G. Robinson
3. Lugosi Béla
4. Charlie Chaplin
5. Boris Karloff

Also, Louis, I think I made wrong predictions about 1978 supporting. But, if you're stilling willing to give me a request, that would be Sergi López for Pan's Labirynth :P

Michael Patison said...

Lezlie, you did make incorrect overall predictions, but he only required you to rank Cazale, not Savage, so you ranked the five he asked for correctly.

Michael Patison said...

I just noticed how radically I had changed my predictions and how illogically I had done so, so I'm going to put what I actually wanted now:
1. Peter Lorre
2. Edward G. Robinson
3. Charlie Chaplin
4. Boris Karloff
5. Béla Lugosi
