1966 Alternate Oscars

I started listing my favorite performances in a Western and the list went on forever — it's probably my favorite genre. So I whittled it down to the top five (no slight intended if your favorite didn't make the cut).

In chronological order:

John Wayne (The Searchers)
Walter Brennan (Rio Bravo)
Eli Wallach (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)
William Holden (The Wild Bunch)

the dog in Big Jake.
Lot of great acting there, but the dog is the only one in the bunch I'd trust to do my taxes. If you've seen Big Jake, you know what I mean. And if you haven't, well, let me just say, John Wayne as an animal trainer makes Cesar Millan look like a crazy cat lady.

My choices are noted with a ★. A tie is indicated with a ✪. Historical Oscar winners are noted with a ✔. Best foreign-language picture winners are noted with an ƒ. A historical winner who won in a different category is noted with a ✱.
