Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1999: Results

6. Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix- Fishburne is mysterious in his first scene, and a fine mentor in the rest of the film.
5.  John Malkovich in Being John Malkovich- Malkovich playing Malkovich is rather enjoyable to watch as he portrays Malkovich no matter who happens to be in his head.
4. Christopher Plummer in The Insider- Christopher Plummer gives a strong performance as Mike Wallace portraying the differences between the performer and the man in the case of a television journalist.
3. Alan Rickman in Galaxy Quest- Rickman gives a very entertaining deadpan performance that delivers.
2. Philip Baker Hall in Magnolia- Hall gives a powerful performance as a dying regretful man that stands well among the greatness of his film. 
1. Sam Rockwell in Galaxy Quest-Well no one predicted Rockwell would win so no one wins! Just Kidding. Good Prediction koook160 (Robert MacFarlane). Sam Rockwell actually was easily chosen by me as I loved every moment and every facet of his performance. He makes the most as the former red shirt, who does not want to go as quickly as his character. He is absolutely hilarious in every scene, but even manages to be honestly believable in the fears of his character as well.

  1. Sam Rockwell in Galaxy Quest

Michael Patison said...

Also, is Osment not here for The Sixth Sense because you consider him lead?

Poor Tom. He is my winner... and I'm not so impressed by Rockwell in Galaxy Quest (I saw the film last weekend). I've liked him, but I've prefered Rickman.

For 1974, of course:
Marty Feldman - Young Frankenstein
John Cazale - The Godfather Part II (maybe also for The Conversation)
John Huston - Chinatown
Robert Shaw - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

For the fifth name...
Gene Wilder - Blazing Saddles
Kenneth Mars - Young Frankenstein
Martin Balsam - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
or
Kris Kristofferson - Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

I'm confident for the first 4

Louis Morgan said...

Michael: Yes I consider Osment lead.

Louis after this can you please do 68? I would love to see you review Fonda and Robards for Once Upon a Time in the West

RatedRStar said...

Robert Shaw - The Taking Of Pelham 123
John Cazale - The Conversation
John Cazale - The Godfather Part II
John Huston - Chinatown
Marty Feldman - Young Frankenstein

Maciej said...

John Cazale - The Godfather, part II
John Huston - Chinatown
Robert Shaw - The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
Sam Waterston - The Great Gatsby
John Gielgud - Murder on the Orient Express

I do wonder though - are you going to review Cazale once again? Because you have already written a review of his performance on your other blog... if not, then I'd suggest Marty Feldman (Young Frankenstein) instead of Cazale.

I notice u put wes bentley last at 53.

RatedRStar said...

haha Wes Bentley was pretty poor lol.

Louis Morgan said...

Maciej: Since I have not posted here before I will be taking another look at his performance.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Okay, could you do Robin Williams in Insomnia for 2002 Supporting Actor?

Louis Morgan said...

Most certainly.

Michael Patison said...

For another entry in your performances this year, I'd recommend Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You. It was really his breakthrough role and, while not super-complex, is pretty good. Also, the film is pretty enjoyable and makes for a nice entry into the teen film genre

Louis Morgan said...

I have seen him but I would put him in lead.

Michael Patison said...

So you consider he and Gordon-Levitt as co-leads? Gordon-Levitt's definitely a lead for me but Ledger is really borderline lead/supporting for me.

Louis Morgan said...

Yes I'd put them both in lead.
