    One of the great Nicholson vs. Pacino battles. I have to give it to Nicholson this time.

    This is such a hard decision…and yet the category is missing two other amazing people: Gene Hackman for The Conversation and Gene Wilder for Young Frankenstein.

    Had Al Pacino been nominated for lead in 1972, he would’ve gotten my vote. Pacino would also get my vote in 1973, so maybe I will give this one to Nicholson. 1975 is just another strong battle between the two of them.

    Top 3 are superb!!!  Pacino gets it by a smidge over Nicholson, even though I think CHINATOWN is a far superior film than GODFATHER PART II.

    1. Pacino
    2. Nicholson 
    3. Hoffman
    4. Carney
    5. Finney

    I give it to Pacino but it’s very close between him and Nicholson.  Carney gets a lot of crap for his win and somewhat understandably given the legends he beat but his performance is excellent as well as is Hoffman’s in Lenny. Finney had no business being nominated though; If Gene Hackman had taken his place for The Conversation this would be the greatest Best Actor lineup of all time, but even as is it’s in the upper tier.

    Should’ve been a tie between Jack and Al Pacino. Hell the next year in 1975 it should’ve been a tie between those two as well lol.

    Why do you blame on Carney? Blame on AMPAS, who were the people that voted for him.

    Pacino

    Hackman gave the performance of the year in The Conversation. As much hate as Carney gets I still think he was better than Dustin Hoffman in Lenny. I love Hoffman but I found his performance in Lenny to be really off, it felt like I was watching a ‘performance’ and he came off as too mannered especially compared to the mroe natural and effortless grace of Nicholson, Pacino and Carney.
