Best Supporting Actor 1993: Results

5. Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive- Jones does what he needs to as a Federal Marshall in charge of a manhunt and fulfills his role.
4. John Malkovich in In the Line of Fire- Malkovich finds an effective way to be creepy as Mitch Leary, but he also adds more than just creepiness to makes his performance interesting.
3. Leonardo Dicaprio in What's Eating Gilber Grape- Dicaprio gives a performance filled with tics and mannerisms but he never makes them seem forced or strange but instead they help create his memorable character.
2. Pete Postlethwaite in In the Name of the Father- Postlethwaite is always a powerful presence in the film, and he and Daniel Day-Lewis create some very strong scenes together.
1. Ralph Fiennes in Schindler's List- Fiennes gives an incredible performance as the Nazil Commandant. He is truly chilling, but he also makes Goth into a real person, even if that person is incredibly disturbed.
Deserving Performances:
Ben Kingsley in Schindler's List

Just as I expected :)

Is 2008 next? I'd like to see your thoughts on Don Ameche won is beyond me...

Yeah, I don't understand that win at all, other than it was the sentimental factor. But usually even when it's a sentimental vote, the performance is at least halfway decent.
