Hoffman still breaks my heart.
I will give this to Hoffman but I don’t think it is a runaway for him….I have never been completely sure if I support the win as he does have strong competition from Peter Sellers and Roy Scheider.
For now, I will give it to Hoffman but I do need to rewatch all of these performances.
Often flip flop around the top 3 choices. I think Hoffman is very good, but he doesn’t grab me like the top 3.
2. Lemmon (one of his absolute best works!)
ROY SCHEIDER for me.
Kramer vs. Kramer is such a manipulative movie… I only like Streep about it.
Hoffman. For me, one of the greatest wins in the history of this category.
Hoffman wouldn’t be my own choice but it was a good win anyway. I really like all of the performances from this year except Pacino.
I would have appreciated a nomination for Martin Sheen this year, but Hoffman’s performance is pretty magnificent.
