Live Poll: IMDb Poll Board Favorite Performances by Actors

I had this poll idea and it turned out that Kirk-Picard started this idea a while ago on the IMDb Poll message board. He gave me the permission to continue with this poll idea.

Please contribute if you like! Whose male acting performance is your favorite?

My list: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls025266776/#1

Poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/GYUz-EFTIs8/


Description: These are the favorite performances by actors of IMDb Poll Board members. Whose performance is your favorite?

See here the thread for actresses: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-imdb-poll-board-favorite-performances-by-act...

I've never actually considered what my favorite performance is, but this is one I really like, so it will be my pick:
Kevin Spacey as Prot in K-PAX (2001)

Thanks! Your choice is added to the list. Good one!
Would be nice if you also can pick someone for the Actresses poll.

These are difficult questions. :). I'm thinking Brando in On the Waterfront, De Niro in Taxi Driver or The Deer Hunter, and so many more, but I'll go with Sean Penn in Mystic River.

Leo in Departed? Really? In fact, he's mentioned twice.

This is hard but some of my picks would be:
Kevin Spacey in American Beauty
Malcolm McDowell in Clockwork Orange
Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump
Bale in American Psycho
Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler
Anthony Hopkins in SOTL
And then the list is incomplete without Godfather. Or you could add Brando for On the Waterfront and Al Pacino for Scent of a Woman.

It’s not up to me which performance gets on the list. They are chosen as favorite’s by the members of this forum. So it would be nice if I can add one for you. Would you Ike to pick one? Brando in Godfather...?

I don't think Keljin and Kakunamatata were ever active participants of the poll board. The problem with these types of polls, especially on the old poll board, was that anyone with any motivation could post a suggestion. When I first did this type of poll, I copied from cocoken, who was a prolific poll author but is no longer on IMDb, and set up guidelines about who could "nominate" a favorite: something like someone who has posted on the poll board at least twenty times prior to when the poll was first suggested and leaves thoughtful and considerate feedback. I stopped doing that, to try to be more "democratic," but I think it's a fair guideline and I might add that to my "performances by child actors" poll, although trollers and so-called "fanboys" are less likely to come onto GS, fortunately.

You are right. I also think they were never active on the poll board. I removed those two:
Leonardo DiCaprio as Calvin Candie in Django Unchained (2012) - Kelljin's favorite
Leonardo DiCaprio as Billy in The Departed (2006) - Kakunamatata's favorite

I'm still contemplating that one.  Not an easy job.  Plus Jodie Foster and Silence of the Lamb is listed already.

I wish I could pick more than 1.  


I'll go with unpopular Jim Caviezel in The Passion of the Christ (2004).  


Someone else will probably pick Liam.



2nd: Liam Neisson in Schindler's List
Tie with Jim Caviezal.

3rd. Brett Morris in X-Men (2000)
Very heartbreaking and powerful for both kids and adults.

Unfortunately there wasn’t time to add your choice before this poll went live. If you want I can do a re-push. I leave it up to you.
Great choice by the way! I liked his performance to.

Hoekkie,

Now that your poll has gone live, you will likely get more suggestions. You might was well wait for those.
