    how?

    I can't vote against Nicholson.

    Stewart is my nominee and the best actor of all times.

    Chinatown. Raging Bull. Taxi Driver. Heat. The Shining. Godfather II (although I know you didn't like the first one, his performance here is amazing).

    Added to the top of my list!
    And if you think Stewart is the best actor, how come you don't want to vote for him? Do you think Nicholson is just as good? Or better?

    Feev, are you thinking of De Niro?

    I hated As Good as It Gets
    And I've seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but it's been forever. I'll have to watch it again.

    I have. We watched it in high school cause we had to read the book. I barely remember it, and I remember hating the book, so maybe that's why I've never watched it again. I will rectify that soon

    Nobody is better than Stewart. Or can possibly be.

    It's just that my paw won't move in the direction of voting against Nicholson. It just won't.

    ... quite unexpected...

    ETA: I hated Ken Kesey's book, too. Never finished it, actually.

    Stewart... as much as I love Nicholson, still an easy choice for me

    Nicholsons best role ever was Five Easy Pieces if you ask me. A Tour de force.

    I love Jimmy, but he's never given me the impression of being a great actor. He's been in amazing films, but he's not an amazing actor.

    Nicholson on the other hand, I'd pay just to watch him read the instructions to a toaster.

    I agree, you're right. And yet, for some reason, if a clip of Stewart reading the instructions to a toaster surfaced, I would most definitely pay to see that.
