    *Battle of the Oscar Winners*

    With the battle of the current bands & NRL stars over, it's time for another; the battle of the oscar winners.

    I've taken the last 32 male and female best oscar winners to start the battle (2006-1975). Once we get down to the last 16, I'll set up a poll to find 16 more performances that weren't included in the original list to come up with the final 32 to playoff for the finest cricketweb rated Oscar performance ever.

    There will be four performances each round. You can vote for 2.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Might be an idea to have the battle of voting for the actors overall not the specific performances as you're not going to get a whole heap of numbers for the latter, imo.

    Yeah this should definitely be voting for the actors rather than performances.

    I'll second that emotion; though Dexter Fletcher would have been preferable.

    Oh well, doesn't matter then. Bit gutted 1971's George C Scott missed the cut as well Marlon Brando in 73. Anyways enough complaining from me.

    Jack Nicholson in one of the greatest performances ever. Thought Louise Fletcher was abit overrated, can't really see what all the fuss was about, Helen Mirren on the other hand...
