Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1985: Results

5. Danny Glover in The Color Purple- Glover is properly intense in his brutality in his role as an abusive husband, but he is unable to get past the restrictions of the part.

Best Scene: Mister is ridiculed by his father. 
4. Wilford Brimley in Cocoon- Brimley gives the best performance of the cast being the quietly commanding presence of the group, as well as creating the greatest emotional impact of the various stories.

Best Scene: Ben tells his grandson he's going away. 
3. M. Emmet Walsh in Blood Simple- Walsh creates a deliriously evil and memorable villain by beautifully playing up the sleaze and menace of his slimy private detective.

Best Scene: Visser double crosses Marty. 
2. Crispin Glover in Back to The Future- Glover gives my second favorite supporting turn of the year in his absolutely hilarious, but when it needs to be moving turn as the spineless George McFly.

Best Scene: George stands up to Biff. 
1. Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future-Well Good predictions to Paoloduncan, and Lezlie please throw out a year and a performance. Lloyd wins this year as it came to the two Back to the Future performances which I love both. I have to choose one so I will choose Lloyd manic and funny turn creating Doc Brown into a truly memorable character.

Best Scene: Doc reveals he did read the letter after all.

Wow, I made two good predictions in a row :P I tried to think about what to choose, but nothing really comes to my mind in particular, so I'll just throw in 1999 and Laurence Fishburne for The Matrix :P I haven't seen it in quite a few years, I'll do a rewatch this weekend, but I remember him the most from the movie. I'm curious how he'll turn out to be :P And great reviews as usual, btw :)

Lezlie said...

Oh, sorry for doubleposting, I considered him for supporting, just thought I'll make it clear :P

Maciej said...

My suggestions:

Laurence Olivier - Spartacus
Gene Kelly - Inherit the Wind
Fred MacMurray - The Apartment
Eli Wallach - The Magnificent Seven
Charles Laughton - Spartacus

RatedRStar said...

Charles Laughton - Spartacus
Laurence Olivier - Spartacus
Eli Wallach - The Magnificent Seven
Fred MacMurray - The Apartment

Surprise us Louis =)

Michael Patison said...

Great reviews!

For 1960:
Charles Laughton in Spartacus
Fred MacMurray in The Apartment
Laurence Olivier in Spartacus
Eli Wallach in The Magnificent Seven

I don't have any clue for the 5th one, maybe Jack Nicholson in The Little Shop of Horrors or maybe Kelly in Inherit

JamDenTel said...

Poor Eric Roberts. I actually thought he did okay.

Anonymous said...

Can you do 93 after this one Louis please? I reccomend if possible

Gene Hackman- The Firm
Ben Kingsley- Schindler's List
Sean Penn- Carlito's Way
Val Kilmer- Tombstone
Harvey Keitel- The Piano

Grady Tripp said...

Haven't you seen Christopher Walken in A View to a Kill and Roddy McDowall in Fright Night? I miss them in your line-up...

Edward L. said...

For 1960 suppoting actor, I like the suggestions above, and would add:

Martin Balsam in Psycho

Louis Morgan said...

Grady Tripp: I forgot about Walken, and have now added him. I have not seen Fright Night.

Michael Patison said...

Shouldn't that also mean you include Moore in Lead 1985? Unless you already have, of course

Louis Morgan said...

Yes I shall since I simply forgot that it came out in 85.

Michael Patison said...

Also, just FYI, you don't have Roger Moore ranked for 1974 for The Man with the Golden Gun.

Louis Morgan said...

I have never watched that one all the way through.

Michael Patison said...

Okay then nevermind. You're not really missing much though.

dinasztie said...

Oh my GOD :D Lloyd owns this year, obviously. :D

RatedRStar said...

wht did u make of The Breakfast Club?.

Louis Morgan said...

Its pretty enjoyable even with the rather dated parts, like the scene where they run through the halls.

Michael Patison said...

You should see Silverado, Louis. It's really enjoyable and features far better performances than most westerns ever thought of having

RatedRStar said...

Did you ever see Year Of The Dragon (1985) Louis, because it has a great villainous turn by John Lone who was surprisingly nominated for the Golden Globe (who you liked in The Last Emperor)
