There are so many great performances out there that it would be very hard to narrow it down to just one. Performances like:
Tom Hanks ~ Forest Gump
George C. Scott ~ Patton
Heath Ledger ~ The Joker
Liam Neeson ~ Oskar Schindler
BUT, what performance sticks out the most in your mind?
For me, it has to be...
Val Kilmer ~ John Henry "Doc" Holliday
You have named all of the ones that I wouldhave named however I would say....
Tyler Perry " Madea" he is skillful, talented writes, directs , produces and plays in all of his plays and movies.
Agreed. I just saw him perform. His last joke was about porn. As he was waving to the crowd someone yelled "Oh Captain, my Captain!" he was like "Oh quoting from Dead Poet's Society are we? Going from porn to poetry, now that's a leap!"
He is amazing.
how about tk's performance on lita's hub?
wait, that's not amazing. it's pathetic.
What about the women?
Meryl Streep- in everything she's ever done.
Diane Keaton- Annie Hall
Diane Wiest- love her so much- Bullets over Broadway.
Kristin Scott Thomas- I loved you so long.
Penelope Cruz- Volver
Jack Nicholson- As good as it gets.

Okay, how about the entire cast of "Glengarry, Glen Ross" (1992): Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin and Al Pacino?
