Live Poll: Face-Off Gary Oldman vs. Colin Firth

Two English actors, two Oscar winners. They both played members of the British goverment in the early days of World War Two making decissions that would shape the course of history.
As a stutterer King George VI, Colin Firth showed us the United Kingdom declaration of war on Germany in The King's Speech.
As Winston Churchill, Gary Oldman showed us how the Prime Minister convinced the parliament to refuse surrender and keep fighting the Nazi Germany in Darkest Hour.

Which of them gave the best performance?

Good one.

Typos:
decissions - decisions
goverment - government

Perhaps "British leaders" is better than "members of government" since the king is probably not usually called a member of government.

'Good poll! May I suggest just three small edits to the intro? ('below in bold: the first is just an added comma, the second just an added apostrophe, and the third is a deleted "the")

Both performances were so good but I'd probably vote for Oldman.

Thanks for bumping these Ruby, I was thinking about doing it soon going into Oscar season.


I have made the three changes.

Colin Firth forever! I loved Gary Oldman's Churchill, but Colin Firth was magnificent in The Kings Speech!
