Which actor or actress do you think gave the best acting performance and why? It doesn't have to be your favorite actor.

For me it's Russell Crow Gladiator. First I didn't want to give that movie a chance, it looked boring to me, second I didn't know who Russell Crow was so that's another reason I didn't care to much for the film. Then I actually watched it and it was simply amazing, Crow did an amazing job portraying his character, and the passion he showed in that film was amazing. Just a supperb job in active from his part.

What about you guys?

I'd say James Gandolfini for the entire Sopranos series as Tony Soprano. His ability to display an entire range of emotions was amazing. He really made Tony Soprano feel like a real person, and that's definitely not an easy character to be.
