Best Supporting Actor 1955: Results

5. Joe Mantell in Marty- There is nothing wrong with Mantell's performance, but there just is not much to it either.
4. Arthur O'Connell in Picnic- O'Connell most certainly has a certain charm to his performance, and does not fall into the melodramatic overacting of some of his co-stars, but on a whole he still does not do anything substantial.
3. Arthur Kennedy in Trial- Kennedy spends a little too much effort to be noticed in this film but having said that he still does give an effective performance.
2. Sal Mineo in Rebel Without a Cause- Mineo gives a very strong quiet performance, that conveys the troubles of his character.
1. Jack Lemmon in Mr. Roberts- Good Predictions Eddie, and Moviefilm. Lemmon is my choice of the year with his very entertaining and enjoyable performance. It is very easy to do comedy like this poorly, but Lemmon hits all the right notes, as well manages to bring the more dramatic aspects of his performance to life as well as the comedic ones.

Funny that you gave Lemmon two wins: his two actual wins. You seem to be in total agreement with the Academy as far as he's concerned.

what about 1999 or 2005 next maybe, happy that Lemmon and Mineo were top two

dinasztie: For me Lemmon is an actor who awarded absolutely for the right roles.

RatedRStar: Those will be relatively soon, but I have already planned the next year.

Still Sal Mineo wins for me, but you can't go wrong with Lemmon!
