Hutton, no question, although I love Joe Pesci's performance too.

Alrightee! My favorite supporting actor lineup, with Hutton the undoubted winner. It is here that I enjoyed all five nominees to a great degree.

Hutton is phenomenal, I honestly don't even remember Hirsch, and Pesci is solid. Definitely a interesting year.

Pesci for me. Without a doubt. Hutton was great too, but I think Pesci did just as much if not more with a more complex character.

i think it's going to be between Timothy Hutton and Joe Pesci; my vote goes to Hutton (some people even consider him lead), but I would also like to praise Jason Robards' stunning acting in Melvin and Howard; in a very brief appearence he created the Howard Hughes persona so memorably. A haunting, indelible performance in my opinion.

Hutton for sure.

O'Keefe is admirable in a rather low-key part.

Hirsch is excellent in a small part that could have been quite saccharine in a lesser performer's hands.

Robards is intriguing in a mysterious cameo.

Pesci okay, doing his Pesci thing in a rather overrated Scorsese flick.

So you took my comment down, huh? Louis, I've always liked your blog and your writing, but you're protecting this cunt? This rat bastard who doesn't even have the balls to show us his own name? Come on man, you're better than that, don't be a ass like him.

Actually the deletion of your comment was merely accidental, I was deleting some spam comments, and accidentally hit yours.

Look, Don, I'm sorry if I've offended you. I was merely offering an opinion, like everyone else on this board. That's what they are: opinions, and not the absolute truth. Let's not get so worked up about this.

No, I'm sorry. Personally, I think Goodfellas is Scorsese's most overrated film.
