Looking at the list I like how Hanks is the only actor to have won twice in a row. :)

And what has he done since? The Lady Killers and Terminal.


From the greats of those 2 films to utter rubbish. :P



EDIT: And why is Gary Cooper on the list twice?

Fill seems pretty interested in this' date=' but then he probably does remember most of the films on the list being released :P.[/quote']

At least I enjoy spending time going out, rather than staying in and watching TV all of the time. :D :D


Theres no Bill Murray here & yes he is an oscar winner.

He was nominated for Lost in Translation, but he didn't win the award. Sean Penn took that one.

And also as far as i can tell Bill Murray has never won an oscar, and has only the one nomination for Lost in Translation.


am i the only person that doesnt really like Tom Hanks? I would never rush out to see a film he's in, i understand (sorta) why people think he's great but i just never really saw it.

Spencer Tracey won it twice in the 1930's ah how i loved Northwest passage.Anyway "The Duke" John Wayne has to win:)

No way i can see at least 5 names on that list that are better actors, and leading men than those two.


How about Peck, Pacino, De Niro, Stewart and Olivier just for starters!


I've never really rated Washington, much int he same was as Hanks.
