Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2005: Results

5. Jeff Daniels in The Squid and the Whale- Daniels is terrific at being one of the most self indulgent character's ever, he never strives from the indulgence instead reveling in it creating a rather entertaining performance.
4. Val Kilmer in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang- Kilmer is just excellent in giving a deliciously amusing and cynical performance that compliments Robert Downey Jr's leading work marvelously.
3. Mickey Rourke in Sin City- Rourke unlike so many of his co-stars finds just the right tone for the material giving an effective turn that is easily the best part of the film.
2. Barry Pepper in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada- Pepper is great here giving a moving performance as a foolish man who is forced to change when confronted with his crime.
1. Ed Harris in A History of Violence- This was an extremely difficult year to choose as I loved all of these performances, and the top two of Pepper and Harris were very hard to choose just one. For the moment though I will go with Harris who despite having the least screen time out of all gives performances he has just as great impact with his powerful villainous turn in this film.

Guys, Keston is a clear Supporting player. Just because he's the title character doesn't make him the lead.

So many performances to choose from... My 5 would be:

Leslie Nielsen - The Naked Gun
William Hurt - Tha Accidental Tourist
Willem Dafoe - The Last Temptation of Christ
Bruce Willis - Die Hard
Bob Hoskins - Who Framed Roger Rabbit

but some other worthy performances would also be:

Tom Cruise - Rain Man
Willem Dafoe - Mississippi Burning
Eric Bogosian - Talk Radio

Oh please, please, please, please, please review Noiret in Cinema Paradiso for 1988. He's so amazing and fantastic, and the movie is top 10 ever for me.

Also:
John Cleese in A Fish Called Wanda
Kevin Costner in Bull Durham
Daniel Day-Lewis in The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Bob Hoskins in Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Tom Hulce in Dominick and Eugene
Jeremy Irons in Dead Ringers

Willis also works.

Just FYI, your #42 should be Corbin Bernsen, not Corbin Benson. His defining work is on television, especially L.A. Law.
