Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1993: Results

6. Sean Penn in Carlito's Way- Penn gives a suitable enough performance that does not fall into the problems of his later work, but still it is not anything that remarkable.
5. Sam Neill in The Piano- Neill does his best to not fall into his cliches of his sort of character creating a believable portrayal of a man who simply does not understand the woman who he wants as his wife.
4. Christopher Lloyd in Twenty Bucks- Lloyd is so incredible in his short segment of his compilation film to the point that I wish the film had been solely about him. He creates a terrific portrait of a small time criminal who is as efficient as one probably could be in his line of work.
3. Ben Kingsley in Schindler's List- Kingsley gives a very quiet, but very moving performance as the man who desperately tries to save as many people as he can by trying convince another man to do the right thing.
2.Val Kilmer in Tombstone- Kilmer brings to life the role of the larger than life Doc Holliday well combining both the flamboyancy and morose qualities of the man beautifully.
1. Richard Jordan in Gettysburg- Good Prediction RatedRStar. Although this year is a spectacular year for supporting actor I can easily choose my favorite non Oscar nominated performance of the year in Richard Jordan. I really do not cry from watching films but watching Jordan's performance as a civil war General pained by the fact that he must fight his best friend is the closest I have ever come to doing so. His performance is so powerful I am very tempted to give him the whole year.

Next Year: 2003 Supporting


RatedRStar said...

wht films have made u cry Louis?

ermm as for my performance I want reviewed err I have to go with one for Best Actor 2002,

2002 alternate to be fair is a very weak set as I cant think of many oscar snubs, therefore I have to go with a foreign performance in the widely regarded greatest Hong Kong Film ever made called Infernal Affairs which was made into a good but not as good remake,

Tony Leung Chiu Wai or Andy Lau as both r lead for (Infernal Affairs)=)ill let you choose which one =D.

As for 2003 Supporting
Sam Rockwell - Matchstick Men
Kevin Bacon - Mystic River
Sean Astin - The Return of the King
Albert Finney - Big Fish
Paul Bettany - Master And Commander

Michael Patison said...

For 2003 Supporting:
Sean Astin in LOTR
Kevin Bacon in Mystic River
Paul Bettany in MC:TFSW
Albert Finney in Big Fish
Bill Nighy in Love Actually

I guess you could also do Elijah Wood or Andy Serkis in LOTR.

Michael Patison said...

Also, what'd you think of Carlito's Way.

Louis Morgan said...

RatedRStar: Honestly none, but if Richard Jordan's final scene had lasted any longer Gettysburg most certainly would have.

Michael Patison: I thought it was a decent crime thriller.

Also do you change you score for Pete Postlethwaite to a 5 because he has a 4 and a 1/2 score and you've rated him higher than Kingsley who got a 5.

Louis Morgan said...

Yes I did.

Anonymous said...

For 2003 Supporting:
Sean Astin in Return of the King
Kevin Bacon in Mystic River
Albert Finney in Big Fish
Peter Sarsgaard in Shattered Glass
Bill Nighy in Love Actually

Anonymous said...

Oh, another suggestion: Geoffrey Rush in Pirates of the Caribbean

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

For those considered to be generally snubbed in 2003:

Peter Sarsgaard in Shattered Glass (seriously, review this one!)
Bill Nighy in Love Actually
Sean Astin in Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Paul Bettany in Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
Albert Finney in Big Fish

One I'd like to see is James Caan in Dogville (it would be 2003 by your rules, right?).

mrripley said...

my 5 to consider

bobby cannavale - the station agent
ciaran hinds - veronica guerin
bill nighy - love actually
peter sarsgaard - shattered glass
daniel craig - sylvia

Maciej said...

Albert Finney - Big Fish
Bill Nighy - Love Actually
Philip Haldiman - The Room (seriously, his performance as Danny deserves a spot here :D )
Geoffrey Rush - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Sean Astin - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Lezlie said...


Sean Astin (The Return of the King)
Bobby Cannavale (The Station Agent)
Bill Nighy (Love, Actually)
Albert Finney (Big Fish)
Kevin Bacon (Mystic River)

Louis, before returning to leading performances, will you be able to do 2001 supporting? It was one of my previous requests :)


koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Am I the only one who saw Shattered Glass, or just the only one who thought it was brilliant?

Louis Morgan said...

Lezlie: I plan on going through most of the other years in supporting that I have covered in lead. Than I will return to lead, but than on I plan on going back and forth with the same year. I will try to get to 2001 soon though, along with all of the other years that have been requested.
