  • English -

    #s 4 and 6 -- There is no such word as "actings" -- use "performances" in #4 and "actors' performances" in #6.

    Everything else is fine.

  • English -

    Same applies to #3. Use "acting."

  • English -

    And that changes the be verb. Since acting is a non-countable, it takes the singular form, "was."

    (Sorry for the double post).
