    Classics and Comedies for me:

    Peter O'Toole
    John Candy
    Steve Martin
    Dan Ackroyd
    Richard Burton

    O'Toole is the most deserving person EVER to receive an Oscar, he is the finest actor of the modern era and one of the greats.

    Thanks to peer pressure from Bliss, I'll throw Johnny Depp in the mix. Agree with O'Toole, Edward Norton. Gary Oldman perhaps. Can't pick out a particular performance but for overall variety. Sigourney Weaver? Poor old 'wrong genre' Jim Carrey. Pretty much every actor I admire already has an Oscar. Tough one. :nod:

    I love Norton and Winslet. I'm surprised they never got any Oscars yet.

    I also wondered why Al Pacino (although he has an Oscar) has never gotten an Oscar in any of the three Godfather movies he made.

    Me and Bliss were talking about that just now. Absolutely! Fell in love with him after seeing them. One of my absolute favourites.

    Tom Cruise did a wonderful job in Rain Man, if you haven't the movie yet, I suggest you to watch it. It's hard to admire his performance because Dustin Hoffman stole the show, but he did a great job.

    I believe if Brad Pitt given a good roll, he a tremoundous actor. Even though I don't think he deserves an award for this movie, he still did a great job in Troy.

    I too can't believe Al Pacino didn't win an Oscar for any of the Godfather films. What on earth happened there?
