    Ledger, Walken and Waltz’s first are untouchable imo. Hackman and Spacey were also phenomenal as usual. Love your inclusion of George Sanders in the top 10.

    Ralph Fiennes would be among the untouchables had he deservedly won for Schindler’s List.

    Love Ben Johnson in Picture Show but I would give the win to Bridges by the slightest of margins.

    Agreed all around, and I’m glad I’m not alone on the latter point.
