    Throughout the history of the Oscars, there have been six people nominated for playing Presidents or First Ladies. Though none of these nominations have resulted in a win.

    However, which one do you think was the best? Sound off below and vote!

    I went with Frank Langella. I was so tempted to vote Joan Allen, though.

    What about Anthony Hopkins in Amistad? He played John Quincy Adams.

    I wanted to mention Kevin Kline for Dave, but he received a Globe nom, not an Oscar.

    I picked Joan Allen…

    But you did forget two performances:

    Alexander Knox in WILSON as Woodrew Wilson
    Greer Garson in SUNRISE AT CAMPOBELLO as Eleanor Roosevelt

    ^ When I originally made this poll, I only put 6 contenders as possibilities (forgot about Hopkins as Quincy Adams and Greer Garson), but I had Knox. Later when I was reminded of Hopkins as Adams, I took out Knox, who had zero votes, and put in Hopkins.
