Best Supporting Actor 1962: Results

5. Telly Savalas in Birdman of Alcatraz- This performance is nothing because his character is nothing.
4. Victor Buono in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?- Buono gives an effectively humorous performance that is not a whole lot but creates some nice little moments when on screen.
3. Ed Begley in Sweet Bird of Youth- Although the Southern Political Boss is an old role, and Begley does not reinvent anything about it he everything the boss should be from the charisma to the cruelty. 
2. Terence Stamp in Billy Budd- Stamp gives an effective performance that is filled with charm and an incredible ease that fully realizes the purity of his character.
1. Omar Sharif in Lawrence of Arabia- Good Prediction Dinasztie and Moviefilm. Sharif gives a strong supporting performance that works in great harmony with Peter O'Toole amazing work as the lead. Sharif perfectly contrast his characters transition to sanity and understanding, as O'Toole shows Lawrence's transition into insanity and sadism.
Deserving Performances:
Peter Sellers in Lolita
Jose Ferrer in Lawrence of Arabia
Claude Rains in Lawrence of Arabia

=D happy you liked Sharif and Stamp, I wish they got nominated more times than just once.
What about one from the 80s next?

Louis Morgan said...

The funny thing is both should probably have been nominated again in the same year in the leading category. 1965 Stamp for The Collector and Sharif for Doctor Zhivago.

The next year will be one from the 80's.

Thanks xxx =), is the collector any good because I've already seen Zhivago ( I requested it for 65 lol purely cause of Tom Courtenay) so is it any good?

Louis Morgan said...

The Collector is great and Stamp is amazing in it, he might even be my personal pick for that year.
