Newman almost could have gotte it in ’61. What do people think of the performance he actually won for?
Woods in SALVADOR is the only one that really I could vote for. Newman and Hoskins were good, but not vote worthy.
HURT deserved the oscar for Children of a Lesser God.
he did all the work..it was quite easy for Marlee to be deaf
and of course, the academy went for it, hook, line and sinker..
This was a very weak year for actors..After HURT, my choices were
The other 2 were unworthy of being nominated..
I never see this as a make up award as like Geraldine Page the year before, Newman gives the best performance.
I think he’s better in this than he was in The Hustler and he fully deserved the win.
I am not very passionate about any of these performances. I would almost place Michael Caine for Hannah and Her Sisters in this category instead. My vote would go to Hoskins.
