Poll: Actors' Career Years

What is a career year? Well, take 1995 for instance: that was quite a year for Kevin Spacey - three movies, including two iconic roles that made him a star: Se7en (1995), The Usual Suspects (1995) and (to a lesser degree) Outbreak (1995).

Here is a list of other actors' "3-set of major performances from the same year"; which one do you think had the most impressive year?
