    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.

    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.

    Imagine not voting for Gena Rowlands.

    Like imagine having absolutely no taste.

    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.

    1. Pacino
    2. De Niro
    3. Dunaway
    4. Nicholson
    5. Burstyn
    6. Rowlands

    N/S the other two.

    I would also vote for Ullmann, if included.

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

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Anyone else find it funny that Art Carney is completely absent here?

    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).

    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.

    FYC OSCARS : PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. ACTRESS – Carey Mulligan AND ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY — EMERALD FENNELL), VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", ESSIE DAVIS FOR "BABYTEETH"
