Greatest Performance by an Actor in a Movie - EVER?
batang uliran Administrator
My votes go to George C. Scott as Patton in Patton and Marlon Brando as Don Corleone in the Godfather. Coincidentally, both actors refused their awards.
It's really hard to choose one. Thanks to Aragorn for reminding me about Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest - great performance indeed. I liked John Malkovich and Dustin Hoffman in Of Mice and Men. (Did I get the actors right?) And I absolutely loved Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption.0
Marlon Brando in 'The Godfather', Anthony Hopkins & Jodie Foster in 'Silence of the Lambs', Robert De Niro in 'Taxi Driver', Ed Norton in 'Primal Fear', Dustin Hoffman in 'Rainman', Kathy Bates in 'Misery', Al Pacino in 'Scent of a Woman', Robin Williams in 'Dead Poets Society'...shiyet dami pa, i would have listed more pero andito na mga asungot so i'll post again later.

yup dustin hoffman won the golden globe for best performance by an actor in a motion picture - comedy or musical. that was in 1983, but he lost to ben kingsley (gandhi) in the 1982 oscars.0
I think Dustin H. and John M. were together in a play turned to a movie called "Death of a Salesman" by Arthur Miller and both had renowned performances. I think it was Gary Sinise in "Of Mice and Men".
My pick would be Jack Nickolson in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Another oldy that I say during one of my english classes was Sir Lawrence Olivier in Hamlet.
there's this movie na sobrang galing but i forgot the actor and the title na. sinned, help me on this one. it's about this son na pianist siya, where his father pounds on him rachmaninoff's masterpiece, until finally nagbreakdown na siya... corny ng summary ko but the movie is good.0
batang uliran AdministratorAre you talking about Shine - the movie about David Helfgott's life? You are right, Geoffrey Rush was pretty good in that pic. He was also pretty good as Javert in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables.0
???§ÎNNëÐ??? Banned by Adminyup Paruparo - the Aussie actor Geoffrey Rush in Shine. He won the Oscars Best Actor in a Leading Role in 1996 beating Tom Cruise (Jerry Maguire), the next favorite actor to win that year, I think.
jinx, umm you mean Morgan Freeman? By the way, Mr. Freeman was nominated for his role in that Shawshank Redemption movie. Tom Hanks(Forrest Gump) won. The year was 1994.0
The best performance by an actor ever is by Christopher Reeves in that "Rear Window" remake wherein he plays a guy paralyzed from the neck down. Galing ng self control niya, he never moved (not even once) all through out the movie. He really played the paraplegic(?) role to a T!!!0
sampaguita no, i'm not for saleLeonardo Di Caprio's acting in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" I thought was really good!
Sally Field did a really good job in "Steel Magnolias". Gosh, I cried my eyeballs out!0
