The Oscar Quest: Best Best Actor Choices

You know the drill by now.

Here is my list of what I consider to be the Best Best Actor decisions of all time.

This was very easy to create. I don’t really think anyone will argue with any of these.

Also, two things to keep in mind. First — again, rankings don’t matter. Focus on the fact that they all belong here Second — take into account the fact that the individual has an Oscar as part of it (especially for 11-15).
