Best Supporting Actor 2004: Results

5. Morgan Freeman in Million Dollar Baby- Freeman gives a painfully standard performance, that is horribly uninspired.
4. Jamie Foxx in Collateral- Foxx gives a functional performance some of the time, but he also fails to capitalize any scene that requires more from him.
3. Alan Alda in The Aviator- Alda has very little to do but still his performance is effective as he shows both the charm and the cruelty of a career politician.

2. Clive Owen in Closer- Owen although has strong elements particularly in portraying the harsh bluntness of his character, but also lacks in terms of his onscreen relationships with his female co-stars.
1. Thomas Haden Church in Sideways- A very easy win for Church who easily gives the best performance of the five through his great achievement of finding a way to make what technically should be just a despicable character, a endearing one instead.

I'm surprised at Owens score, but Haden Church is a worthy winner =)

What about doing 2008 next? Or at least soon. I´m really interested about your opinion on Ledger, Shannon, or Downey Jr. :)

He is great!

It seems 2004 was a weak year for many, but not for me. Eternal Sunshine, Sideways, and Million Dollar Baby were all movies I really like.

What did you think of the Golden Globes? They surprised me in a lot of ways!

I was hoping the Globes would have surprised me more since Supporting Actor, Actress, and Actor seem on the way to being completely sewn up.
