Best Jon Voight Performances

The Top Ten

1 Midnight Cowboy

He was perfection in this movie. His performance as Joe Buck is one of my favourite performances by an actor or actress in general. I still believe that he should have won an Academy Award and not just an Oscar nomination for this one.

2 Runaway Train

He was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Actually this is a very suspenseful and interesting movie. He did a great job here, as well.

As much as I love The Champ, Runaway Train is definitely his best film. Absolutely brilliant. The ending is so bittersweet.
Great list! - Britgirl

Best Voight performance for me.Incredibly convincing as hardened criminal Oscar Manny Manheim.Brian Law.

3 Coming Home

He finally won his first Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

He was perfection as a man who id dealing with his past


4 The Champ

What an emotional movie and another great and memorable performance from Jon.

"I want Champ... I want Champ! " - Britgirl

One of his best performances. A true classic.

6 Ali

He is unrecognizable in 'Ali'. Naturally, he received his fourth Oscar nomination for this movie.

7 Conrack

What an underrated movie and performance, Simply riveting!

8 Rosewood

If you haven't seen this one, you should find a way and watch it. It's a marvelous film.

9 Catch-22

A very peculiar movie, I found his performance very memorable in Catch-22.
