Best Supporting Actor 1942: Results

5. Frank Morgan in Tortilla Flat- Morgan is by far the best part of a bad film bringing a lot of heart to his role of the dog lover.
4. Henry Travers in Mrs. Miniver- Travers portrays his usual nice old man role in his usual nice old man fashion. It is not a stretch for him, the part is very limited, but Travers does it well.
3. William Bendix in Wake Island- Bendix's whole point in the film is to be funny, he is funny enough, and he is perfectly fine.
2. Walter Huston in Yankee Doodle Dandy- Huston gives a good performance as the warm and wise father. He is convincing in the vaudeville scenes, but his role is a little too limited for Huston to really do anything  special in the role.
1. Van Heflin in Johnny Eager- Good prediction RatedRStar. Heflin very very easily wins this year. Heflin simply gives an outstanding performance. He absolutely steals the entire film, he brings genuine emotions, and an original character to a film that certainly needs it.
Deserving Performances:
Claude Rains in Now Voyager
Roddy McDowall in The Pied Piper

Im shocked how many times I get it right on best supporting actor lol compared to best actor haha =D. Glad to see my hero in the deserving category =)

I reckon 51 or 75 will be next.

Before you chose this year I actually thought Huston would win easily since he had won for the three other nominations =)

I am also for 1975. :)

Can you do '75 next? :)

Louis Morgan said...

75 is the clear favorite for the next year, but I want to save it actually. This is only because out of the years I have left it is the only one commonly described as a strong year, and I want to end with a strong year.

How about 2006?

What'd you think of Joseph Cotten (for supporting) and Tim Holt (for leading) in The Magnificent Ambersons/Have you seen The Magnificent Ambersons? If you haven't seen it, I strongly recommend it.

I haven't gotten around to Ambersons yet.
