Poll: Better actor: Leonardo DiCaprio or Joaquin Phoenix (27 votes)

Leonardo DiCaprio 63%
Joaquin Phoenix 37%

I asked this because DiCaprio was WB's first choice to play Joker before Phoenix in the new movie.

I question how film-savvy the people who voted in this poll are.

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of, if not my favourite, actors. He's fantastic. But Joaquin is far and away the better actor.

This is one of the best acted scenes in movie history:

I’d say Joaquin, but it’s not a big gap between them

Leo's got more range. Leo could play just about any character Joaquin can play, there are some characters Joaquin could not pull off.

Joaquin’s performance in the Master is better than anything Dicaprio’s done.

DiCaprio being weird doesn’t make you a better actor, it just makes you weird.

Phoenix is better at what he does, but Leo is good at a lot more

who's better an Olympic athlete that wins 5 or 6 Silver Medals in different events or a guy who wins 1 or 2 Gold Medals in certain events?

that's basically what this question is asking

DiCaprio has more range and is just as talented in my opinion. Phoenix is great in is his own right though.

DiCaprio. His performance in Django is better than any Phoenix performance in my opinion.

Both are great in their own right. But really Leo takes the cake and has the Oscar to prove it.

Oscars don’t mean anything.

Anyway, Leo due to range.

@socajunkie: Oscars suck but I would tune in if an actor I like gets recognition.

Leo is overrated and overhyped, he's in everything nowadays and always give the same performance with the same style. Phoenix can pull any role with top-notch performance and different style, he'll make you believe he is the character.
