|Ingrid Bergman is in two of my favorite classes.|
I've compiled a list of my favorite groups of personal acting winners by year. These are essentially based on each individual performance and how it compares the rest of the "class" of that year, though making this list wasn't an exact science. It was hard to narrow it down to ten, but here are my favorites right now.
Note: Names rotate clockwise in the photos.
(Bogart, Bergman, Coburn, Baxter)
(Law, Cruz, Mackie, Kikuchi)
(Winstone, Belmont, Cruise, Kidman)
