Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1984: Results

5. Robert Preston in The Last Starfighter- Preston gives an entertaining enjoyable performance doing his usual thing that perfectly fits his character.

Best Scene: Centauri's introduction.
4. Jeffrey Jones in Amadeus- Jones gives a funny little performance with his reactions throughout the film, but does convey the right command of his character.

Best Scene: The Emperor gives his opinion on Mozart's new opera. 
3. Richard Burton in 1984- Burton gives a swan song performance being properly oppressive and cruel as his torturer character.

Best Scene: O'Brien tortures Winston. 
2. Hector Elizondo in The Flamingo Kid- Elizondo gives a very moving performance and effectively is the heart of his film.

Best Scene: Mr. Willis meets Mr. Brody. 
1. James Wood in Once Upon a Time in America-Woods wins this year easily as he gives the most complex and compelling performance. He creates an incredible depiction of one man's journey of ambition and where it leads him to.

Best Scene: Noodles meets Secretary Bailey.

Ralph Fiennes- The Constant Gardener
Viggo Mortensen- A History of Violence
Tommy Lee Jones- The Three Burials of Melqiuades Estrada
Christian Bale- Batman Begins
Robert Downey, Jr - Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Mysterious Skin
(yes, I know that's six)

I would consider Jeff Daniels supporting in The Squid and the Whale

Michael Patison said...

For 2005:
Russell Crowe in Cinderella Man
Jeff Daniels in The Squid and the Whale
Ralph Fiennes in The Constant Gardener
Nathan Fillion in Serenity
Tommy Lee Jones in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
Viggo Mortensen in A History of Violence
Cillian Murphy in Breakfast on Pluto (I think you would classify this as 2005, but it may be 2006)

You could also maybe do Colin Farrell in The New World, but I don't really remember whether he's lead or not it's been so long since I last watched it.

Maciej said...

So, except my request for TLJ in "The Three Burials...", my list would be:

1.Bill Murray - Broken Flowers
2.Nicholas Cage - Lord of War
3.Cillian Murphy - Breakfast on Pluto
4.Ralph Fiennes - The Constant Gardner

Hold on, scratch JGL. First non-festival release was 2006.

Anonymous said...

Oh crap, I forgot about Ray Winstone! PLEASE review him! PLEASE!

houndtang said...

you missed Haing S Ngor off your final round-up for this year :)

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

He considers Ngor lead, like he should.

Michael Patison said...

Ngor is #2 on his lead page, behind Abraham of course.

Michael Patison said...

Louis, what did you think of The Bounty? Personally, I think it's the best version of the story.

Louis Morgan said...

I quite liked it and it is my favorite version as well. I really liked the more complex version of Bligh.
