Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1974: Results

5. Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein- Feldman gives an entertaining and enjoyable performance.

Best Scene: Igor says what his father would say in rough times. 
4. Martin Balsam in The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three- Balsam does a great job of humanizing his hijacker, and makes it easy to follow through his own small story within the film.

Best Scene: Mr. Brown reacts to the first murder. 
3. John Huston in Chinatown- Huston gives a great villainous performance creating a fantastic mystery within his character who acts warmly, but evil seems lurking beneath his grin.

Best Scene: Gittes first meets with Noah Cross. 
2. Robert Shaw in The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three- Shaw gives an excellent performance as a steely cold and calculated villain.

Best Scene: Mr. Blue kills the first hostage. 
1. John Cazale in The Godfather Part II- Good Prediction RatedRStar. Although I do love Shaw's and Huston's performances Cazale does fairly easily win this year for me. He too could be argued as playing a villain, but Cazale turns his character's pathetic plight into a truly heartbreaking portrait of a brother who just was never good enough.

Best Scene: " I'm your older brother Michael"

I had no question that Cazale would win.
Suggestions for 2011 Supporting:
Bryan Cranston in Drive
Mark Strong in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Brad Pitt in The Tree of Life
Alan Rickman in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
Ben Kingsley in Hugo

Since you already reviewed Albert Brooks here, I'm assuming you won't do him again. Or maybe you will, what do I know?

Michael Patison said...

Great write-ups! For 2011:
Albert Brooks in Drive
Tom Hardy in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Brad Pitt in The Tree of LIfe
Andy Serkis in Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Mark Strong in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

You could also do Alan Rickman in HPatDHP2 if you wanted. He's so incredibly poignant for me in that movie.
You could also do Patton Oswalt in Young Adult.

Michael Patison said...

Oh yeah, Bryan Cranston too

Bailey Posey said...

Hey man, you forgot to put Jeff Bridges on the overall list, same thing for Haley Joel Osment on the 1999 Alternative, just saying

Anonymous said...

Bailey, I think he considers them leading.

I hope you do Corey Stoll for Midnight In Paris if you're doing 2011 Supporting next

Anonymous said...

Could you please consider Viggo Mortensen in A Dangerous Method?

RatedRStar said...

Ezra Miller - We Need To Talk About Kevin (im surprised no one mentioned him)
Bryan Cranston - Drive
Mark Strong - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Alan Rickman - Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2
Viggo Mortensen - A Dangerous Method

I would also include someone form these:
Philip Seymour Hoffman - Ides of March (or Moneyball)
Paul Giamatti - Ides of March
Kevin Spacey - Margin Call
Jeremy Irons - Margin Call
John Goodman - The Artist (or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close)
James Cromwell - The Artist
Tom Hanks - Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Some suggestion:
Albert Brooks - Drive (obviously :D )
Brad Pitt - The Tree Of Life
Michael Fassbender - Jane Eyre
Kevin Spacey - Margin Call
Paul Bettany - Margin Call
Jeremy Irons - Margin Call
Viggo Mortensen - A Dangerous Method
Shahab Hosseini - A Separation
Patton Oswalt - Young Adult
Corey Stoll - Midnight In Paris

I'm a little bit surprised that De Niro has dropped to fourth place...
I like your first 7-8 choices, but he remain my undisputed winner.

Maciej said...

My suggestions:
Bard Pitt - The Tree of Life
Mark Strong - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Colin Firth - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Ben Kingsley - Hugo
Sasha Baron Cohen - Hugo

Maciej said...

And I deliberately ommited Brooks for Drive, since you have already reviewed him on this blog - though I'm pretty sure he'll be the winner.

Lezlie said...

Albert Brooks (Drive)
Bryan Cranston (Drive)
Brad Pitt (The Tree Of Life)
Ryan Gosling (Crazy, Stupid, Love)
Andy Serkis (Rise of the Planet of the Apes)
