    I haven't seen the half of these movies, but from what I saw

    you see, it's not even the performance that usually matters, performances can be equally great, but the character, the Academy does the same, the actor shares the Award with the character. All actors from your list did their job and played okay, but it's mostly the character that we choose.

    who do I think would win


    Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca

    why: the Academy frigging loves this dude, they'd give him awards for asking what time it is if they could


    Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's

    why: same as Bogart's why

    but if it was my decision to make

    Peter O'Toole for Lawrence of Arabia - a very inspirational character and great performance

    Whoopi Goldberg for The Color Purple - same here :))) and I just LOVE her lol, I know you said no favorites, but what the heck!
