    My favorite decade for male performances.

    Much better list than that of the 1960s winners.

    #1-Peter Finch (debatable that he could’ve been in Supporting but he was a true life force)
    #2-George C. Scott
    #3-Marlon Brando (Al Pacino should have been in Lead that year)
    #4-Dustin Hoffman
    #5-Gene Hackman
    #6-Jack Nicholson (could have also gone to Al Pacino)
    #7-Jon Voight
    #8-Richard Dreyfuss (decent performance/win but I would’ve given it to Woody Allen)
    #9-Jack Lemmon (good performance but it should have been Pacino)
    #10-Art Carney (should’ve gone to Pacino or Nicholson….or the snubbed Hackman or Gene Wilder)

    1. Nicholson (shoulda been Pacino, but sooooo close)
    2. Voight
    3. Finch (shoulda been DeNiro)
    4. Brando (shoulda been Winfield – yes I said it!)
    5. Hackman (shoulda been Scott)
    6. Hoffman (shoulda been Schieder or Sellers)
    7. Scott (shoulda been Nicholson)
    8. Carney (shoulda been Pacino or Nicholson)
    9. Lemmon (shoulda been Nicholson)
    10. Dreyfuss (shoulda been Allen)

    1) Jack Nicholson
    2) Marlon Brando (would’ve kind of liked to have seen Pacino take this, though)
    3) George C. Scott
    4) Gene Hackman (so hard to decide between him and Malcom McDowell for “A Clockwork Orange”, though he was easily the best of the category)
    5) Dustin Hoffman (could’ve gone to Sellers, as well, though I also would’ve liked to have seen Martin Sheen nominated)
    6) Peter Finch (I might prefer De Niro by just a bit)
    7) Jon Voight (De Niro was very incredible here, as well)
    8) Jack Lemmon (hard to really choose a winner, but I’d probably pick Pacino or Brando)
    9) Richard Dreyfuss (also hard, but I’d have preferred Dreyfuss to win for “Close Encounters”, even though I love this)
    10) Art Carney (Pacino all the way. Then Nicholson. Lovely performance, though)

    I’ll go with Brando, closely followed by Nicholson.

    If he had been in Supporting, would he have won over Jason Robards (All The President’s Men) and who would’ve been taken his place in Lead? Who would’ve won?

    I went with Jack. Finch second. Hoffman third. Brando’s mumbling a begrudging fourth.
