Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2008: Results

5. Eddie Marsan in Happy-Go-Lucky- Marsan a good supporting performance through the film, and even helps Hawkins's performance come alive more in their scenes through the extreme differences of their characters.
4. Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight- I would not quite put his performance quite up there with Ledger and Oldman, but on his own he creates his character's journey effectively and gives a strong performance throughout the film.
3. Brad Pitt in Burn After Reading- This is a great performance from Pitt, and  it could not be a better comedic portrayal of an idiot.

2. Gary Oldman in The Dark Knight- Oldman gives a moving performance making Commissioner Gordon a truly three dimensional character.
1. Ralph Fiennes in In Bruges- Good Predictions Lezlie and Michael Patison, feel free to name a year and a performance. Fiennes easily wins this year, and I must say I really did consider giving him the overall. I love every aspect of this performance every one of his scenes are amazing as he is both an imposing villain but as well an always hilarious character.

What kinds of scores would you give to Jason Butler Harner and Liev Schreiber?

As for 1985:
Wilford Brimley in Cocoon
Crispin Glover in Back to the Future
Danny Glover in The Color Purple
Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future
M. Emmet Walsh in Blood Simple

As for my request, there are just so many years with great alternate supporting performances, but I guess I have to start somewhere. So I'll go with 1988 Supporting and go with Tim Robbins for Bull Durham.

When you do alternate 2011 Supporting Actors, I suggest Kiefer Sutherland or Johnn Hurt in Melancholia, Seth Rogen in 50/50, Patton Oswalt in Young Adult, or one of the many fine supporting performers from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

When you do 1993 Louis can I reccomend

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

This really is a great year, with many worthy performances. Congrats Michael for you predictions :)
As for my request, when you get to supporting performances in the 2000s again, would you please do 2001, and review Sean Bean in The Fellowship of the Ring?
