When supporting characters are not that 'supporting' ... when the leads lead a selfish crusade in the name of greed, cruelty or a wicked vision of power ... or when the darkest sides of the human soul inspire powerful and unforgettable perforamances allowing the villain to have a final revenge... and take the Oscar home.

Which of these oscar-winning performances as a real-life of fictional villain is your favorite?

(PS: Vito Corleone isn't included not because he's a good guy but to call him a 'villain' in the film's narrative would make no sense, his son Michael was a villain in the second opus, although a tragic one)

Well, I called it Re-Suggestion because it's obviously a follow-up to the removal of characters-poll, the original was this one: http://www.imdb.com/poll/x6YuVj19ECo/?ref_=tt_po_q2
It took me half an hour to duplicate the poll and I have like 40 like this, so i'm not sure it's really worth it:)

I guess you just do the ones you most want to bring back to life.

"real-life of fictional villain" should be "or"

Sigh, I notice that myself.

I like your use of re-suggestion. I had considered using reprise.

thanks, I considered re-use and re-prise, but I thought it was better to keep the word "suggestion"
