Personally, I thought Leo in Wolf of Wall Street was the most enjoyable to watch.

Paul Newman in Color of Money would get my vote though.

Nice poll, but I think you can do better:

- Try to pick images where we have a full view on the character's face, if not 100% facing, at least central enough to look like a character's defining picture, still images can work but it's better when it represents a static position, not the character doing something. If it conveys a particular emotion, it's better so we can have an idea about the performance (since it's the focus of the poll)

- check the definition, some look better than others. And it's better to use the characters' stock pictures, they look cool and are the most poll-friendly in general. A counter-example: get rid of that Joe Pesci picture from "Goodfellas", the picture doesn't do justice to the character though it's a memorable image, and it's obviously a still frame that could have been used just by making a picture out of a computer screen, the quality of the picture is rather poor and it's typically the kind of pictures that get removed from the gallery (trust my experience)

- not an obligation but the order seems random (or was it alphabetical), since there's no reason to start with one movie instead of another, may I suggest you start with the most emblematic ones of each category. Like maybe 1 De Niro, 1 Leo, Two winning (De Niro + Pesci) and maybe DDL...

Hi Elm, thanks for the feedback

Looking back at it some of the images weren't the best, I have updated a few, but in the case of Diane Ladd that is literally the best image of her in that role IMDb has.

The order is alphabetical by surname and then order of nomination if more than one. I chose this order to hopefully not give prominence to any specific role/actor/award.
