    ^ Well don’t apologise. But as a matter of fact two of my favourites are on that list, Mark Rylance and Joel Grey. And I wouldn’t take Al Pacino’s Godfather loss too hard seeing as he was in the wrong category to begin with (and apparently boycotted the ceremony because of it). 

    I think my least favourite recent acting win in any category is Jared Leto. “Wasn’t he amazingly transformative as that transgender guy? Wait, what? What do you mean, he’s not a guy?!” Lol.

    I also hate the fact that Walter Brennan won three in such short succession. Not because he was undeserving – I haven’t even seen any of his winning performances – but because it was clearly a result of his popularity with the Union of Film Extras, who were consequently barred from voting. And also because he was the most notorious twat.

    Absolutely Jared Leto, who was 4th on my nominated list that year, only ahead of Cooper. Mark Rylance doesn’t deserve to be on that list- his performance was understated and brilliantly subtle.

    Christian Bale. He’s so dull in everything except of “The Illusionist” where he’s average. He’s the most overrated actor of all time.

    Mark Rylance is a perfect winner.

    Cuba Gooding, Jr.. He was fun, but in no way, was he Oscar-worthy. If anyone should’ve won for that film, it was Tom Cruise. Also, and this is likely an unpopular opinion, but I think Jared Leto’s win was overrated. Michael Fassbender, or even Barkhad Abdi, should’ve won.

    Christopher Plummer did nothing award-worthy in ‘Beginners’. Broadbent’s win is pretty bad as well.

    Plummer didn’t have any competition

    Jim Broadbent won because he was in Moulin Rouge and Bridget Jones’ Diary alo that year.

    I never got how Michael Caine beat Cruise. They just must not like Cruise. His loss to Daniel Day-Lewis was kind of a big shock at the time.

    The 60s were a weird decade. Lots of strange wins.

    Caine won because he wasn’t present at the ’86 Oscars and the Academy wanted to see him make an acceptance speech. Supposedly. That, and the Academy wasn’t exactly head-over-heels for “Magnolia.” Wouldn’t surprise me, actually, if Michael Clarke Duncan was runner-up…

    1. Cuba Gooding Jr. (Just awful) 
    2. George Clooney (If we have to live with Clooney’s only acting Oscar is for Syriana, I’ll be depressed. What an embarrassment) 
    3. Jack Palance (what the hell did he do excpet ride a horse?)
    4. Dom Ameche (First of all, lead performance. Second of all, Cocoon?!  What the hell?) 
    5. Sean Connery (Love him but he does nothing interesting in The Untouchables) 
    6. Melvyn Douglas (Being There. Boring) 
    7. Walter Matthau (No where near on the top of his game for The Fortune Cookie) 
    8. Gene Hackman (Boring) 
    9. Benicio del Toro (Boring) 
    10.  Christian Bale (Does nothing remotely noteworthy in The Fighter)

    I think Joel Grey is one of the BEST winners in this category EVER. Pacino shouldn’t win, he’s the clear lead of his film, and deserved to win in the category he belonged.

    I’d say Cuba Gooding Jr. (don’t even think he’s funny) and Don Ameche (the most explicit “honorary-in-competitive” oscar case).

    I think that’s one of the biggest snafus in history. If Pacino was lead, he would have won and none of this Scent of a Woman nonsense would have happened
