1974, probably the greatest year in cinema history, with all the greats of the 1970s doing their career greatest performances, but who rose on top??? Which one is the greatest performance of 1974???
Vote.December 14, 2020 at 11:27 am #1203919474
I admittedly haven’t seen the other films but I doubt anyone could top Gene Hackman in The Conversation. What an incredible performance! It’s a crime that he wasn’t nominated for Best Actor that year.

Pacino by far.December 14, 2020 at 11:50 am #1203919556
Pacino, easily.December 14, 2020 at 11:56 am #1203919577
Despite some pretty great performances here, I didn’t hesitate voting for Gena Rowlands.
I know she was ineligible but a strong second for me would’ve been Liv Ullman for SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE.

Gena Rowlands, definitely. It’s not even my favorite performance of Rowlands or even my favorite performance from Rowlands for a Cassavetes film, and yet she deserves the vote here.December 14, 2020 at 12:09 pm #1203919632

Haven’t seen Rowland’s film so Pacino was a pretty easy pick

Anyone else find it funny that Art Carney is completely absent here?December 14, 2020 at 1:52 pm #1203920006
Tie between Pacino and Rowlands.
It’s insane that the former never won anything during his legendary three-year run from 1972-1975 (The Godfather, Scarecrow, Serpico, The Godfather Part 2, Dog Day Afternoon).December 14, 2020 at 2:21 pm #1203920089
Ellen Burstyn, Alice Doesn’t Live Here AnymoreDecember 14, 2020 at 2:25 pm #1203920098
It’s not letting me vote for Ellen Burstyn?
But Burstyn then Hoffman then Rowlands then Pacino for me. Ullman is my favourite of 1974 though but she’s not included in the poll.
