    Sometimes we have acting line-ups with 5 great performances, but not necessarily all of them are in 5 great films. And sometimes we have 5 great films, but not 5 great performances. But how about years where we have 5 great performances in 5 great films? Name here line-ups in which this happened.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    The Best Actress race at the 90th Academy Awards. Not my favourite lineup or how I would have wanted it to end up but all 5 of Hawkins, McDormand, Robbie, Ronan and Streep’s performances were great (with Hawkins, McDormand and Robbie above the other two by far) and their films all were too imo.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    2017 Best Actress lineup had good performances and they were all in good movies. I thought that it was the strongest lineup in the 2010s. Maybe I don’t have Streep in my lineup but she definitely was worthy in The Post.

    Best Actor 1976:

    Peter Finch – Network (winner)
    Robert De Niro – Taxi Driver
    Giancarlo Giannini – Seven Beauties
    William Holden – Network
    Sylvester Stallone – Rocky

    One of the most consistently great lineups in Oscar history. Stallone is, if anything, the least of a good bunch, and while I’m not crazy about Rocky it is at least iconic and a classic of sorts. As arguably the greatest male lead performance of the 70s, De Niro has to be my pick, but he’s not miles ahead of Giannini who floored me when I first chanced upon Seven Beauties in my local arthouse, not knowing what to expect. That Finch is only third best for me gives some indication of the standard of competition here.
