You reminded me with your suggestions that I forgot about Forrest Whitaker and Jamie Foxx............. Bird and Ray
Also put in all your suggestions and moved N.W.A. into the top 5 choices.
Thanks

It seems this poll is not restricted to "singers" only (Ike Turner as well as Charlie Parker are in), that's why I suggest to include:
James Stewart as Glenn Miller in The Glenn Miller Story (1954);
Emily Watson as Jacqueline du Pré in Hilary and Jackie (1998);
Don Cheadle as Miles Davis in Miles Ahead (2015);
Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in Born to Be Blue (2015);
There is no chance for them to get the top, but they deserve to be in the list, no matter voted or not.

This movie is very interesting but for non-music matters, so it's for your consideration to include or not:
Mahershala Ali as Don Shirley in Green Book (2018).

And some more options that totally match this poll criteria:
Edda Magnason as Monica Zetterlund in Monica Z (2013);
Eric Elmosnino as Serge Gainsbourg in Gainsbourg (2010);
The Four Seasons in Jersey Boys (2014);
The Sapphires in The Sapphires (2012)

Jersy boys and Sapphire are in.
Pulled Bird. Forgot he's not a singer.
That leaves out Instrumentalists

In the title please lowercase "by an".

Or perhaps you don't need the last part, so it could just be "Best Portrayal of a Singer or Group".

Would like to put it in.
Good suggestion.
Once a poll start it's locked and it would be hard for a late addition to catch up.
Thanks for the reply.

I reckon she played her to a tee. Only a TV movie, but it was pretty good

I don't like short face-offs, but this movie bees in the bonnet: What if Karen Allen?
