Best Actor – 1967

Official Nominations: Rod Steiger. Warren Beatty. Dustin Hoffman. Paul Newman. Spencer Tracy

An excellent list of nominees, each deserving of the win, with Rod Steiger picking up the official trophy for his gritty portrayal of a Southern White Cop whose life and beliefs and put in turmoil by the appearance of a Black Detective. Warren Beatty gives one of his most charismatic and iconic performances as Clyde Barrow while Paul Newman runs a gamut of emotions as the similarly iconic Luke. Spencer Tracey shines in his last role, with filming completing a couple of weeks before his death, while newcomer Dustin Hoffman was cast perfectly, and shockingly as the awkward, drifting graduate Ben.

My Winner: Dustin Hoffman

318082-1

My Nominations: Warren Beatty. Dustin Hoffman. Paul Newman. Rod Steiger. Sydney Poitier. Alain Delon.

I’ve added two obvious choices to my list – Sydney Poitier for either Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner or In The Heat Of The Night (my preference being the latter) and Alain Delon for Le Samourai where he perfects the art of the cold, solitary assassin.

My Winner: Dustin Hoffman

    For me, it would be Warren Beatty, but I would have awarded it to Lee Marvin for his performance in Point Blank. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
