    I never realised that the Globes nominated John Turturro for Quiz Show. As terrific as Paul Scofield was in the same film it is Turturro that should have been Oscar nominated. I also love David Paymer's work in the film.

    Either way Landau was in peak form and gave the performance of his life which is saying something as he'd already given a list of great ones.



    1. Landau
    2. Turturro
    3. Jackson (shame the film isn't as anywhere near as great as Jackson's performance)

    4. Sinise
    5. Bacon (I've never 'gotten' Kevin Bacon in anything aside from My Dog Skip)

    SLJ, Landau and Turturro are astonishing in some of the best films of the year. I could have gone with any of them, but Sam is absolutely iconic, so he got my vote (even though I put him in lead in my personal ballot)

    A good opportunity to mention that Quiz Show is the best American film of 1994, and should be much more widely seen. It could not be more different from the stuffy, stoic period dramas that people seem to think it is. A dynamic, vibrant and hilariously twisted thriller that satirizes the media better than most films from the era.

    Jackson, Landau and Turturro are amazing. This was a hard choice, but I had to go with Jackson.

    As much as I love Jackson my pick is Landau. Best win in the category that decade.

    Turturro is an amazing actor and Jackson’s performance is astonishing but Landau is otherworldly.

    Bacon, actually.

    1. It was a super fun and thrilling performance.
    2. I suspect he won’t get much love from the voters here.

    Is this the first time SLJ loses on a poll like this one?

    Turturro would get my vote in most years, but not over Landau's GOAT work. The other 3 are fine. SLJ was better in Jungle Fever though.

    Those River Wild nominations were so weird. There's nothing wrong with Meryl and Bacon's performances, but it's a middling commercial thriller that wasn't even a huge hit.

    I can't believe the Academy snubbed Turturro and for his own co-star at that.

    Landau, Jackson, and Sinise are the three essential nominees.
    Don't mind that someone from QUIZ SHOW got a nomination. I preferred Scofield, but no complaint with Turturro.
    I love Bacon and Curtis Hanson, but this nomination is weird. This is the one time they decide to recognize him?
    Palmintieri was fine, but that nomination was s surprise at the time, and I don't know that it's a performance anyone really remembers.

    Should have been in here: Bruce Willis for PULP FICTION, Tom Arnold (yes, him) for TRUE LIES.

    Landau gets it out of this lineup.

    Although I find Pulp Fiction to be greatly overhyped (Jackie Brown and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are the two Tarantino films that are the best), Samuel L. Jackson is one of two elements I love about that film and he is excellent in it. (The other is the brief off-the-wall turn by Amanda Plummer). He's second here.

    Turturro is third. Quiz Show is the best film of 1994, but I prefer Scofield and Fiennes in the film.

    Sinise is too overbearing in Forrest Gump, and Bacon (and Streep) cannot change the fact that The River Wild is a grindingly predictable, completely forgettable thriller by numbers.

    I hate Forrest Gump as much as the next guy, but I've always thought Gary Sinise was amazing in it. He brings a much needed dose of bitterness, grit and reality. And he's perfect at it, really, and he's my winner, both of the nominees, and in general, of this year.

    Meanwhile, Jackson is one of my favorite actors alive. but I've always thought Pulp Fiction isn't really among his best. He's fun, but he kinda can do it in his sleep.

    Landau is brilliant, and if it couldn't be Sinise, I'm glad he was the winner.

    I have mostly forgotten Turturro, I guess he's his solid reliable self in the fine but forgettable film that is Quiz Show.
