Poll: Oscar Nominees & Winners at 29

Celebrating the 29th anniversary of our favorite website, here are the 29 performances that earned their actors an Oscar nomination (sometimes a win) on the year of their 29th birthday.

Which of these 29 performances (ranked chronologically) would you consider your favorite?

After the vote, you might discuss the list here (oh, and the * refers to a supporting role)

As usual, it's very likely that the actor/actress might not have turned 29 (or 30) before the actual date of the ceremony, but using the same convention as for the last four editions, the age 29 is simply the result of a simple subtraction of years.
