    Julie Andrews for Mary Poppins

    While I love that movie and think her very good in the role. Personally I would have given it to her the next year for The Sound of Music. I think TSOM is a better movie and has better preformances. But I do love Mary Poppins.

    Vivien Leigh for A Streetcar Named Desire (ditto Karl Malden)

    Julie Andrews for Mary Poppins

    Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook

    Brando for On the Waterfront

    Jack Nicholson for One Flew Over The Cookoo’s Nest

    I respect your opinion but personally I think their performances on this films were better
    .Gone With The Wind
    .On The Waterfront
    .Victor/Victoria
    .Mother!
    .A Streetcar Named Desire
    .Ironweed

    It’s sad/funny how one can make a much shorter list of actors/actresses who won for their best work, rather than those who did not. Unfortunately this is true with too many examples at the Oscars.

    Adrien Brody, The Pianist
    Jamie Foxx, Ray
    Anthony Hopkins, The Silence of the Lambs
    Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight
    Jack Nicholson, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
    Gregory Peck, To Kill a Mockingbird
    Joe Pesci, Goodfellas
    Natalie Portman, Black Swan
    J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
    Elizabeth Taylor, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf
    Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

    My personal pick, but probably not the popular opinion:
    Dustin Hoffman, Rain Man

    While not acting, Gaga’s win for Shallow was so much better than if she had won for Til It Happens to You.

    Sure, this thread is not only for acting.

    I like Shallow, but “Always Remember Us This Way” was the best song in the movie. Actually its Gaga’s best song ever, imo.
