Not sure, but I call THE SPY WHO LOVED ME one of Moore's weaker performances. How come he gets two nominations? Never was a big fan of Connery in GOLDFINGER myself, for the same reasons as with SPY. Too damn smug.

Connery in TB with Dalton in TLD winning honorable mention.

I would rate Connery in FRWL and Craig in CR as the best Bond performances. I would rate Moore's best performance as FYEO.

Kind of surprised that Moore's performance in Octopussy is leading right now. Personally I think Dalton's best film was TLD, but his strongest performance was in LICENSE TO KILL, though just barely. He was great in both, but the vengeance factor in LTK gives him the opportunity to go darker than he was in TLD.

Dalton in LTK. Moore in OP I think is sharp but Dalton's my favourite and his performance in LTK was just as, well, sharp.

This.

I GF and TSWLM: too smug
OP: Moore's better performances, but not his best.
LTK: Angry Bond?
CR: Bad Boy Bond.

I'd take Connery in DN over any other Bond performance, with FRWL, TB, TMWTGG, FYEO, AVTAK, TLD, TND, TWINE, DAD and QOS being the top Bond performances.

How is Connery's DN performance not on the list? It's the quintessential James Bond performance. And I would have voted for that btw.

Not an easy choice for a long-time Moore fan, but CR's torture scene throws it in Craig's favour.

I also agree that Dalton's TLD performance was more enjoyable than watching him grimace his way through LTK.

Connery was at his most confident in GF. That was Bond with a capital B, but as far as depth of acting goes, he was surfing at the time, not scuba diving.
