The guidelines are strict on this one. You only get to name one perfromance which, in your opinion, tops all the performances you have ever seen in your lifetime. Does not have to be an Oscar performance - just your opinion.
If you list more than one actor, your entry will be disqualified and you could receive a severe verbal thrashing.

You've got quite the sadistic sense of humor, don't you? But then, I like that in a girl.. I'll go with the first one that came to mind.. DeNiro in Ragin Bull..

The kids in "The Class". So good I actually genuinely thought it was a documentary at first. Then Bruno Ganz in "Downfall".

I 2nd DiCaprio in "Whats Eating Gilbert Grape". That was the first time I saw him and I thought he was really mentally impaired.



Ha, I am going against the OP and mentioning some others. Thing is, acting and movies play on our emotions, so one day, depending on how we feel emotionally (and spiritually and mentally) we may say one performance is best, then next day, we would say another, then on another day, someone altogether different, so there isnt really just one but several that stand out as "best" performances. Here they are:

Adam Sandler in "The Waterboy"
Rob Schneider in "The Hot Chick"
Samuel Jackson in "Pulp Fiction"
