Good one!

Does your question mean who is your favorite actor of the three or which is your favorite portrayal of a singer?

All three are good actors who gave good performances. No matter what the precise question is, it will be a tough call but I'm leaning toward Zellweger either way.

I know it's confusing. I tried to word it in different ways, but it was worse.
Favorite "Actors Portrayal", seemed to sound correct.I used plural. If I had used singular "Actor", then you would be picking your fave actor.
What do you think?
Even if I have the perfect wording some will pick the actor and some will pick the portrayal. A Catch-22.

Gaga and Malek were both nominated last year, so how is this three years in a row?

Also, Bradley Cooper was also nominated and also played a singer.
