    2000s

    Jeff Bridges - Crazy Heart

    90's

    Tom Hanks - Forrest Gump (I didn't realize Kevin Costner never won in the 90s. I would've picked him over Hanks for Dances With Wolves or A Perfect World.)

    80's

    Paul Newman - The Color of Money (should've been for Hud or Cool Hand Luke though ; )

    70's

    Art Carney - Harry and Tonto

    60's

    John Wayne - True Grit (didn't he get the award in 1970 though? I wish it counted like that cause there's no one performance I really love from the 70s & two I love in the '60s, Gregory Peck as Atticus was great)

    50's

    Gary Cooper - High Noon (♥ Holden too, but he should've won for Sunset Boulevard)

    I have to acknowledge the Golden Age

    40's

    Jimmy Stewart - The Philadelphia Story (should've been Mr. Smith though ; )

    30's

    Clark Gable - It Happened One Night (should've been for Gone With The Wind ; )

    I think the best actors over all those years would be Jimmy Stewart, Gary Cooper, & Paul Newman (even The Duke if you count The Searchers) but none of them won (for what I believe) were their best performances. Tough call, I just can't pick one.
