lots of actors to choose from here. My personel choice would have to be Gary Oldman. He has not had any real leading roles warrenting even a nomination in quite a while. Was great in BatMan and could have got the nod in Sid & Nancy. Dracula? Nah.... Beethoven was great but some thing seems to be missing in his leading roles. Lots of great roles and last of the "method actors". Maybe a life time award first then that elusive Oscar.

Well the only major Award I recognize is the Oscar. So you have the likes of Edward Norton, James Dean, Tom Cruise, and Peter O' Toole.

Define "major award" please.

He is one of the greatest of our time I think hands down. He really has very few movies that weren't stellar.

Amazing movies with Dicaprio:

What's eating Gilbert Grape
Basketball Diaries
The Beach
Gangs of New York
The Departed
Blood Diamond
Shutter Island

(Inception looks like it will be amazing)


Has Jonny Depp won an Oscar? I know he's made some stinkers, but the movies where he is on are amazing. I think his role in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is some of the finest acting I've ever seen.

Absolutely. He is the reason I still watch "Roseanne".
