Best Actor #1: Dustin Hoffman
I have been enjoying Dustin Hoffman for many years and he continues to impress me every time I see one of his movies. "Tootsie" was probably the first time I saw him and I was blown away. It's always tricky when someone crosses gender lines but Dustin Hoffman pulls it off incredibly to create a believable female version of himself. He is not an actor you'd expect to be able to look different enough to appear female but he manages to pull it off. I saw him in "Death of a Salesman" where he successfully pulls off the iconic theatre role of Willy Loman, a much older character. And he continued to blow me away with his autistic character in "Rainman." Then just when I thought he was done doing new and interesting roles, he played Captain Hook (in "Hook"). He was the last actor I expected to play this cartoony character but managed to pull it off and even perform better in this silly movie than Robin Williams and Julia Roberts (two fellow Academy Award winners). Recently I saw one of his older movies, Krammer vs. Krammer, and was blown away once again. He has so many great performances and is worthy of being number one on my list of best actors.
