Live Poll: Another Kind of 27 Club

Celebrating the 27th anniversary of our favorite website, here are the 31 performances that earned their actors an Oscar nomination (eventually a win) on the year of their 27th birthday.

Which of these performances (ranked chronologically) would you consider your favorite?

http://www.imdb.com/poll/82XuokI5_qA/

Again, I know it's very likely that the actor/actress might not have turned 27 (or 28) before the actual date of the ceremony, but using the same convention as for the last two editions of this poll, only years are considered.

Well, although there are many things I can criticize about the website, if it's not my favorite, I don't know what it is. But maybe it's presumptuous to assume that we all share the same feeling, so maybe I should simply mention IMDb, right?

Elmo, Don't change anything because of my comment. I knew what you were referring to. That was just my lame attempt at joking?  It's just not my favorite website, not even before they shut down the boards.

Oh don't worry, I knew you knew what I was referring to, and I detected the sarcasm, it wasn't a lame joke but some dry humor... with some truth behind. IMDb isn't everyone's favorite website.

Speaking for myself, I maintain that IMDb is my favorite website, in the non-porn category (now, that's my lame attempt at joking)

(or was I joking?)

The mouth is laughing, I don't see the same sincerity in the eyes, was I that funny? My sarcasm-dar is failing me :)

More seriously, where'd you get these pictures, I always find them in forums but is there a source or you just download them from google?

I just Googled 'hysterical laughter' and there are so many good ones to choose from, but I love David Tennant so he's my default choice.

Yes, it didn't last unfortunately but I remember when I saw him for the first time in RD, I thought "now that's a lucky guy, tall, strong and handsome" you can't beat that.

Interesting list, like a cross section of history. I might vote for Vivien Leigh.

Should I change the title for something more explicit about the poll (like I did for the previous editions): Oscar Nominated Performances at the Age of 27 (or something like that) or is it fine the way it is?

I think the title is fine, though in the intro, instead of "eventually a win", I would recommend perhaps "in some cases a win" or something similar.
"Eventually" sounds like you mean they all did win the Oscar eventually.

You have a typo in the Jennifer Jones entry (Since You Went Away).
Although the image you have is from her other Oscar nominated role in Love Letters. She was 27 at the time of that film, perhaps it was that one you meant?

Eventually is one of these "false friends" we used to study in English courses, in French, "éventuelllement" does mean "in some cases".

Since You Wet Away... lol, quite a typo. In fact, I'm glad you noticed it because the film was Love Letters, she was 27 at the time of the Oscar ceremony, I don't know why I mixed up the title.

Merci beaucoup!

Thanks Dan, I love that every time my daughter's N-th birthday comes, I have my N*100th poll and it generally includes IMDb anniversary-related ones.
October is really becoming a "lucky" month.
