Hi, Pencho.
This is a cool list. But I see it a little critical to mix up acting-Oscar-nominees with other Oscar-nominees. Taika Waititi is an Oscar Nominee, but not for acting. He was nominated for best short film, live action in 2005, only. First impression: When I read the intro, I have the impression that all should have been acting nominees.

Yes, but apparently he also plays someone in the film.

I'd vote for Tilda, because she's the most talented.

Sure. I think that way, because he also had a very minor role at the franchise, while the others had a bigger role in at least one movie. But ok, he is like a cameo. So like when Stan Lee or Hitchcock appear in the movies.

Indeed, he is actually a director and made a place for himself in Thor Ragnarok playing a character that also appeared in Endgame. It is the only person in that situation.

While he is not an essential character and is mainly added for a joke scene, he does have more screen time than other like Natalie Portman, William Hurt or Marisa Tomei.

Great poll idea,

I don't have a problem with Taika Waititi being on the list. I would bet if the Marvel marketing department were trying to sell it, as a film filled with Oscar nominees, they wouldn't have a problem sticking "Oscar Nominee" tag under his name either.

I was surprised to see Natalie Portman on the list, as she has said she will never do a superhero movie again. Natalie Portman Is “Done” with Thor.  Low and behold she was true to her word, as Natalie Portman Didn't Really Return For Avengers: Endgame.

Since male and female actors don't compete for the same Oscar, I'll pick one of each, i.e. Samuel L. Jackson and Tilda Swinton

Thanks. It's corrected.


Robert Redford and Tilda Swinton are my favorite actors on the list.

Tilda would probably get my vote because I also love her performance as The Ancient One., while Redford's Avengers role is not better than others in the saga.
