Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2003: Results

5. Albert Finney in Big Fish- Finney gives a fairly simplistic performance, but appropriately so. He fills his role with the right charm and warmth necessary.
4. Peter Sarsgaard in Shattered Glass-Sarsgaard gives an understated and effective performance in his depiction of a editor who slowly sees his popular writer for the liar he is.
3. Kevin Bacon in Mystic River- This was the battle of the subtle, and understated really. I must say that this is most certainly a toss up, really I hate to put Sargaard fourth but I don't really feel him as fourth. I really liked all four equally and I basically just had to pick one. Bacon is my choice at the moment giving a moving performance, that is again very understated, that finds a way to give the best performance of his film.
2. Paul Bettany in Master and Commander- Bettany another good understated performance this year as a quiet source of reason and warmth on a war ship.
1. Sean Astin- The Return of The King- Astin capitalizes on his work from the previous film fully realizes his character with a powerful passion.

  1. Sean Astin in The Return of the King

Let's see, 1984 is a toughie:

James Woods in Once Upon a Time in America
Robert Englund in A Nightmare on Elm Street
John Candy in Splash
Jeffrey Jones in Amadeus

I can't think of a fifth.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Also, John Noble would have been bottom of the list for me.

Michael Patison said...

For 1984:
Anthony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles
Jeffrey Jones in Amadeus
Rob Reiner in This Is Spinal Tap
Denzel Washington in A Soldier's Story
James Woods in Once Upon a Time in America

I really couldn't think of a 4th or a 5th so I just threw in Denzel and Reiner

Michael Patison said...

And Noble would be about where you've ranked him. I thought he effectively portrayed the inability his character has to understand his own situation and his own children and I came to truly despise him and I actually think I cheered when he jumped off the cliff. I thought he was effective.
