The Votes Are in: Best Dramatic Actor and Actress of 2007

Because this year was such a good one for dramas, there were many opportunities for some of Hollywood's best dramatic actors to shine, making these polls rather challenging! There have to be winners, however, so here are the actor and actress you've deemed the best of 2007.

Best Dramatic Actor of 2007: Jake Gyllenhaal, Zodiac
The winner for this poll is technically Jake Gyllenhaal, with James McAvoy coming in second place. The most popular write-ins were Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin for No Country for Old Men, and Emile Hirsch for Into the Wild.

I myself chose Denzel Washington, as I thought he was fantastic in American Gangster, though it was hard to not vote for Christian Bale.

Best Dramatic Actress of 2007: Keira Knightley, Atonement
There's a lot of Keira love going around these days, and I must say I, too, think she does a beautiful job in Atonement. Angelina Jolie's performance in A Mighty Heart takes second place with Meryl Streep as a close third. A notable write-in vote went to Cate Blanchett for her performance in I'm Not There.

I simply had to vote for Angelina's powerful, controlled and heart-wrenching performance as Mariane Pearl.

I'm not a big O' fan of Jake Gyllenhaal, but he is a good actor.

i saw a small clip of a mighty heart, and i was not impressed with angelina's performance in that small clip. it just reminded me of reese "I JUST WANT TO KNOW HE'S OKAY!!!!!!!" bad acting in rendition. although i'm very surprise with jake getting first place, but good for him. i loved zodiac. i'm really happy that there is a lot of zodiac love in buzzsugar.
