It is not possible to win the Academy Award for Best Actor with every movie. An actor's spectacular performance in a movie is not enough to take the Oscar statuette home. The movie he starred in also needs to be a magnificent production at Oscar standards so that the actor can fully reveal his performance.
In order for the actor to put on an Oscar-winning performance, the script must be written for it and the character must have been created accordingly. If we look back and take a look at the performances that won the Best Actor Oscar, we see that a significant part of them were biographical performances in movies based on true stories. This reveals the importance of the story of the portrayed character.
A screenplay with the potential to win an Oscar has been put forward, and it features a standout character. A director, who handled the subject so successfully that it caught the attention of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also took the lead of the project. This is where the talent of the actor comes into play. Out of hundreds of performances in movies released over the course of a year, only one of the actors who dazzled with his performance and managed to touch hearts is able to win the Academy Award for Best Actor.
While it may seem like an award for the performance of a single person, each Oscar is a testament to the success of teamwork. Just as a movie wins the Academy Award for Best Picture with the joint effort of the entire cast and crew, the entire team contributes to winning the Academy Award for Best Actor.
