21 Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York V 1 Comment
22 Woody Harrelson - The People vs. Larry Flynt
23 Ellen Burstyn - Requiem for a Dream
24 Sissy Spacek - In The Bedroom
25 Nicolas Cage - Adaptation
26 Johnny Depp - Edward Scissorhands
27 Kevin Costner - Dances with Wolves
28 Edward Norton - American History X

The best Edward Norton performance EVER! The look of pride on his face when being arrested after killing 2 people was so believable it was chilling to watch!... who walked off with the oscar that night? Roberto Bennini? What?!... Who remembers that clown?! Should have gone to Norton?... HE WAS ROBBED!

One of the greatest performances of all time, the look of evil on Derek's face after he got arrested = so believable and priceless. That film was snubbed for nominations as well.

29 R. Lee Ermey - Full Metal Jacket

great performance, only a golden globe nomination, come on! - roblist

30 James McAvoy - Atonement

He all suffered with Robbie in Atonement

He was amazing in both. I still don't unterstand why Forrest Whitaker won the Oscar for best Male Role, when it was James Character who was the main person in the Film (not that I think he didn't deserve it - but for supporting actor)

31 Tom Cruise - Jerry Maguire

I wonder despite of films like TOP-GUN, JERRY MAGUIRE, VALKYRIE, INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and of-course MI-series... He has not grabbed even an OSCA
