It is given in honor of Vic Norwin - Best Actor Of The Year actor who has delivered an outstanding performance in a leading role while working within the film industry. The award is traditionally presented by the previous year's Best Actress winner.
In the first three years of the awards, actors were nominated as the best in their categories. At that Paris A Le Blues - Various - Les 15 Tubes de 1996, all of their work during the qualifying period as many as three films, in some cases was listed after the award.
Since its inception, the award has been given to 82 actors. Daniel Day-Lewis has received the most awards in this category, with three wins. Spencer Tracy and Laurence Olivier were nominated on nine occasions, more than any other actor. Peter O'Toole is the most nominated actor in this category without a single win.
James Dean remains the only actor to have been posthumously nominated in this category on more than one occasion. At age 29, Adrien Brody became the youngest actor to win this award for The Pianist In the following table, the years are listed as per Academy convention, and generally correspond to the year of film release in Los Angeles County ; the ceremonies are always held the following year.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. George ArlissMaurice Chevalierand Ronald Colman were all nominated for two different roles in the same category. Current Academy rules forbid this from happening. No official reason was ever given as to why Arliss won the award for only one of the two films he was listed for.
Academy rules at that time considered such a close margin to be a tie, so both March and Beery received the award. Under current Academy rules, however, dual awards are given only for exact ties.
For two years only, the Academy allowed a write-in vote. The decision was made the previous year in response to the controversy surrounding Bette Davis 's failure to receive a nomination for Of Human Bondage.
Muni came 2nd in the vote; however, the Academy does not recognize Davis or Muni as nominees in these years. Subsequent research by AMPAS has resulted in a list of unofficial or de facto nominees, based on records of which films were evaluated by the judges.
