Poll: Oscar Nominees & Winners at 27

Celebrating the 27th anniversary of our favorite website, here are the 31 performances that earned their actors an Oscar nomination (in some cases a win) on the year of their 27th birthday.

Which of these 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)

Again, I know it's very likely that the actor/actress might not have turned 27 (or 28) before the actual date of the ceremony, but using the same convention as for the last two editions of this poll, only years are considered.
