As previous mentioned, this year's Golden Globe ceremony honored Steven Spielberg with the Cecile B. DeMille award, honoring him for his life-time of achievement in cinema.
Yet, I was thinking today about all of Spielberg's great films and realized that he has never lead a single actress or actress to win an Oscar. Yet, the roles and characters he creates end up being famous...far more for the stories then the big acting sequence. But I thought I would do my best to create a a list of 10 performances in Steven Spielberg films. Feel free to disagree, suggest amendments, and create your own list.
1. Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth in Schindler's List
2. Whoopi Goldberg as Celie Johnson in The Color Purple
3. Tom Hanks as Captain John Miller in Saving Private Ryan
4. Liam Neeson as Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List
5. Leonardo DiCaprio as Frank Abagnale Jr. in Catch Me if You Can
6. Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park
7. Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook in Hook
8. Drew Barrymore as Gertie in E.T.
9. Samantha Morton as Agatha in Minority Report
10. Tom Sizemore as Sgt. Mike Horvath in Saving Private Ryan
Who'd make your list?
