Oscar-Winning Baddies

Some of my favorites from the past 20 years. I almost included Jeremy Irons as Claus von Bulow, but innocent until proven guilty, right? Christoph Waltz's Colonel Hans Linda has a decent shot at joining these ranks next March. We'll have to wait and see.
Have I missed any? Who are your favorites? Where does Hans Landa rank amongst other infamous screen villains?

Great list here. It's so tough to label one as "better" than the others, they're all so fantastic. If I was forced under extreme pressure to order the 5 best of these performances, I'd say:

1a. Heath Ledger
1b. Daniel Day-Lewis
3. Denzel Washington
4. Christoph Waltz
5. Kevin Spacey
