21 Daniel Day-Lewis - Gangs of New York V 1 Comment
22 Woody Harrelson - The People vs. Larry Flynt
23 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

24 Kevin Costner - Dances with Wolves
25 Ellen Burstyn - Requiem for a Dream
26 Sissy Spacek - In The Bedroom
27 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.

28 R. Lee Ermey - Full Metal Jacket

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

29 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)

30 Nicolas Cage - Adaptation
31 Johnny Depp - Edward Scissorhands
32 Jeff Bridges - The Big Lebowski

Because he is flawless in that role, just like in any of the roles he plays

33 Michael Moriarty - The Stuff
34 Robert Duvall - Apocalypse Now
35 Leonardo DiCaprio - Titanic
36 Robert Downey Jr. - Iron Man V 1 Comment
37 Johnny Depp - Ed Wood
38 Glenn Close - Fatal Attraction
39 Shirley MacLaine - The Apartment
40 Marlon Brando - A Streetcar Named Desire
