Best Supporting Actor 1961: Results
4. Peter Falk in A Pocketful of Miracles- Falk is the only good thing about the movie, and he tries his best to be funny but his performance just is pushed too much in the background to over come the terrible film he is in.
3. George C. Scott in The Hustler- Scott is brilliant as Burt showing his manipulations in a brilliantly, realistically, and as cruelly effective as possible. He never ever false as Burt and that is what makes his performance all the more effective.
2. Jackie Gleason in The Hustler- Gleason gives a great performance through a relatively simple character by the fantastic way he creates something legendary out of simply playing pool.
