Top 10 Actors Who Deserved Their Oscar Win

Beatlesboy9

The Top Ten

1 Tom Hanks - Forrest Gump

No, Tom Hanks, great actor, should have gotten an Oscar for Cast Away (2000), however, I hate this movie, to because it's a drama or anything, just because it's so damn sappy. - BeatlesFan1964

Tom Hanks is a great actor who definitely deserved his award for his performence in this role... Yay

2 Anthony Hopkins - The Silence of the Lambs
3 Jack Nicholson - One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest

The best!

4 Denzel Washington - Training Day
5 Kevin Spacey - American Beauty

Finally, something I agree with. - BeatlesFan1964

6 Dustin Hoffman - Rain Man

I've seen Rain Man, the best performance of 1988 was Bruce Willis in Die Hard. - BeatlesFan1964

7 Robert de Niro - Raging Bull
8 Marlon Brando - The Godfather

Definitely - BeatlesFan1964

9 Christian Bale - The Fighter
10 Christoph Waltz - Inglourious Basterds

Totally. - BeatlesFan1964

The Contenders

11 Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight
12 Daniel Day-Lewis - Lincoln
13 Ben Kingsley - Gandhi
14 J. K. Simmons - Whiplash

Nobody can portray a ruthless lunatic like day Lewis did. I shiver every time when he says "I drink your milkshake"
