Tom Hanks is one of two actors, including Spencer Tracy, to win consecutive Best Actor Oscars (“Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump”). He is certainly one of the best actors of his generation, but is he the best?

Anthony Hopkins terrified the world with his sinister Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” nabbing the Best Actor trophy despite only spending 12 minutes on screen. He will live on in film history as one of the best villains of all time, but does he top all actors?

Sidney Poitier became the first African-American to win Best Actor for “Lilies of the Field.” Poitier helped pave the way for diversity among film actors, but does he stand alone at the top?
