For almost 30 years Gary Oldman has been one of the most dedicated character actors working in Hollywood. Often times changing his facial features, body type and voice to fully encompass a role, Oldman -- often best in eccentric supporting roles -- has given us some extraordinary performances (though sadly he's never been nominated for an Oscar).

Oldman's devotion to his craft continues with his latest role in the post-apocalyptic thriller 'The Book of Eli.' Starring opposite Denzel Washington, he plays a crazed despot of a makeshift town who wants the book that Washington's character possesses.

But it doesn't matter if he's playing a villain, a historical figure, or doing unforgettable cameos, Oldman always stands out. Join us as we list our top 10 Gary Oldman performances.
