Tom Hiddleston portraying Hank Williams in 'I Saw The Light' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1490785/
It was a great performance which never got  the credit it so richly deserved, and Tom did it all -  including the singing!Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston in I Saw the Light 2015

I thought that he was nominated. How did they forget him, his performance was unbelievable.

Don't know if voices can be nominated, but if they can: Liam Neeson as Aslan in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
If it has to be live action, then Arnold Schwarzenegger as Roman Melnyk in Aftermath.

I have decided that I will make one poll for actors and one poll for actresses; do you have any male performance you would like me to replace Masina's with ?

Paul Giamatti...Miles from Sideways (2004)

Maybe consider making this a two parter: one for actors and the other for actresses?
Amy Adams...Louise Banks from Arrival (2016)

I know my female choice but I'm going to have to deliberate a while on my favorite male performance.

rubyfruit76goddangwatir you know... 

Count McAvoy as my pick, then. Whole trilogy is super underrated in that regard, Samuel L. Jackson easily deserved at least a nod for best supporting in both Unbreakable (2000) and Glass (2019)

Alright, added !

Who should I credit McAvoy as though ? After all, he does play a plethora of characters in said movie, and I have not seen it, so I don't know who he is portraying in a frame.

I was thinking of using this photograph for the poll, and I would be very thankful if you told me who he is playing in it.

goddangwatir, well... Collectively the entity is bascially Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Horde, as The Horde nickname encompasses all 24 personalities. On the picture in question he's the elusive 24th personality, which is a thing of its own - The Beast. :)

So many great ones to choose from and a hard choice to make, but on my first watch of 'Dead Ringers' Jeremy Irons' performance, in a contender for the definitive portrayal of identical twins on film, left a big impression on me. On subsequent watches, I still love the film and his performance still blows me away. That he was not even nominated is inexplicable and as brilliant as his Oscar-winning performance in 'Reversal of Fortune' is, I am with the general consensus that his performance in 'Dead Ringers' was the better (and braver) one. I think even Irons himself thinks so judging from his acceptance speech.

Thank you for the intersting backstory !

Since he plays two roles, and I have not seen Dead Ringers, it is very hard for me to know whether he is Beverly or Elliot in a photo. Could you send me the link to a photograph that I can use in the poll and leave a note of who Irons is portraying in it?

It would be much appreciated :-)
