I love the picks, but I disagree with some of your "best performances" lists.

Nick L. said...

Hooray for Peck, Spacey, and Landau (who is even more awesome in real life)! (I just had to rub that in your face again) (Because I'm a bitch) (insert parenthetical text here)

I'm loving your list Jeff:)!! Well done!!

Aditya Gokhale said...

Awesome work man! This is the first time I've seen any such list feature the likes of Martin Landau! I can imagine the effort it must've taken..

Jeff SC said...

Thanks everybody! I wish I could have put Landau higher, but sadly I haven't been able to find more of his movies, so I was kind of limited with how high I could have him. And Aditya, it has taken me a looong time, haha ;D

Jericho Aguado said...

I love this list though I think Spacey should be higher. Interested to see who else tops these guys

Sara C said...

Errrr I hate Michael Douglas, I think if I could think and then rank 100 actors I like...he would still not make the cut. Gosh Kevin Spacey this high up, I'm getting increasingly excited for the reveal of your top 10!!! I love Jim Broadbent too!

Sara C said...

Haha just read Nicks comment...

Jeff SC said...

Haha, what's wrong with Michael Douglas? Have you seen him in these movies? And yeah, Nick is an annoying little bugger, isn't he? :P

OMFGITSROHIT said...

Fatal Attraction is Douglas' second best imo. You seen it?

Sara C said...

I think it has something to do with his voice and face. They both annoy me and it doesn't matter what the rest of him does, I just can't get on board with him!
