1. Clark Gable - Gone With the Wind
2. James Stewart - Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
3. Robert Donat - Goodbye Mr. Chips
4. Laurence Olivier - Wuthering Heights
5. Mickey Rooney - Babes In Arms
As for the actress it was a great year for actors, all except Rooney was well deserved nominees
There Were Some other memorable performances this year coming from Erroll Flynne in "The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex", Charles Laughton in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", Charles Boyer "Love Affair", Henry Fonda in "Young Mr. Llincon". I Would replace Rooney with Fonda.
Clark Gable gives his best performance ever in this movie, funny, witty, dramatique, he is everything and has great chemistry with Vivien Leigh.
