Paul Newman was nominated eight times for the Academy Award for Best Actor over a span of nearly 40 years before finally taking home the coveted statuette for reprising his role as "Fast" Eddie Felson in The Color of Money (1986). However, many people, including Newman, felt this was the Academy's way of 'compensating' for snubbing him time and again in what was one of the most frustrating quests for the award in film history. He had often stated it was also one his least noteworthy performances. 

For which role do you believe Newman should have taken home the Academy Award for Best Actor before his eventual win?

Live poll:

Not sure why the movies he was nominated for aren't in the text of the option.  Please amend that.

NOTE: Could an admin please add in the "Live Poll" link in this thread - the title has been updated to Live Poll but it seems the actual Poll URL was accidentally left out.

Thank you in advance.

You lost me at Betty White. That's such a stupid option, and should never be included.
