  • Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress
    • All the King’s Men (1949)* – Broderick Crawford; Mercedes McCambridge
    • On the Waterfront (1954)* – Marlon Brando; Eva Marie Saint
    • Separate Tables (1958) – David Niven; Wendy Hiller
    • Elmer Gantry (1960) – Burt Lancaster; Shirley Jones
    • Network (1976) – Peter Finch; Beatrice Straight
    • Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)* – Dustin Hoffman; Meryl Streep
    • My Left Foot (1989) – Daniel Day-Lewis; Brenda Fricker
  • Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor
