Best Supporting Actor 1968: Results

5. Daniel Massey in Star!- Massey does a slight Noel Coward imitation, and that is it. The film he is in is downright terrible, and he does not rise above that material.


4. Jack Wild in Oliver!- Jack Wild I feel does certainly fully fit the role of the Artful Dodger. Now the role is not that much, but Wild handles it well enough.
3. Seymour Cassel in Faces- A realistically handled and played performance, that works incredibly well in Faces, he adds a good amount to the film, and he an Lynn Carlin work perfectly together.

2. Gene Wilder in The Producers- A performance I will admit may not be for everyone, and it all contingent on whether or not you find his antics funny, which I did.

1. Jack Albertson in The Subject Was Roses- Albertson is truly great as the father of a small dysfunctional family. His performance really contains some truly great acting, and creates a very fascinating character.
Deserving Performances:
Jason Robards in Once Upon a Time in the West
Timothy Dalton in A Lion in Winter

Oh, wow, I am not really familiar with this year.

Do you like Once Upon a Time in the West? We watched it on a media lesson last Monday and it was my third time and I loved it.

I prefer Wilder, but Albertson was also great. He's my #2. I felt that Fonda was more of a leading role and should have been nominated there.
