Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1988: Results

5. Tim Robbins in Bull Durham- Robbins gives an entertaining performance finding the endearing qualities within his rather unintelligent character.

Best Scene: Nuke offers his words of "wisdom".
4. Philippe Noiret in Cinema Paradiso- Noiret gives a moving performance that nicely conveys the warmth and wisdom his character has.

Best Scene:  Alfredo says goodbye to Toto.
3. Christopher Lloyd in Who Framed Roger Rabbit- Lloyd gives an effective villainous turn by putting so much conviction in his performance even when saying the most absurd things.

Best Scene: The Freeway speech. 
2. Alan Rickman in Die Hard- Rickman creates a deliciously evil villain and is effectively amusing and imposing sometimes even in the same scene.

Best Scene: Hans pretends to be a hostage. 
1. Michael Palin in A Fish Called Wanda- Good Prediction Lezlie. My favorite this whole year is Michael Palin, although it was close between his Oscar winning co-star and Alan Rickman. Despite loving all three though Palin's performance, which succeeds in making assassination and dog killing funny, is my favorite.

Best Scene: Fish and Chips.

Martin Sheen- Bad lands
Gene hackman- Scarecrow

Al Pacino- Scarecrow

Michael Patison said...

Great write-ups and I'm really glad to see Noiret at least make it into the nominees.

Harvey Keitel in Mean Streets
Steve McQueen in Papillon
Michael Moriarty in Bang the Drum Slowly
Ryan O'Neal in Paper Moon
Martin Sheen in Badlands

It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I've always seen Newman as a supporting player in The Sting. Yes, he plays an equivalent role in the actual sting, but his screen time is more limited, or so I recall.

Mark said...

Dang, so close. Oh well, I got the 1988 Lead at least.

Shit, crowded year. Umm...

Robert Mitchum in The Friends of Eddie Coyle
Martin Sheen in Badlands
Harvey Keitel in Mean Streets
Edward Fox in The Day of the Jackel
Donald Sutherland in Don't Look Now
James Coburn in Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid
Malcolm McDowell in O Lucky Man!

Lezlie said...


For 1973, I would suggest:
Michael Sheen (Badlands)
Harvey Keitel (Mean Streets)
Paul Newman (The Sting)

As for my request, could you please review Javier Bardem for Mar Adentro when you get to 2004 leading?

I saw Zero Dark Thirty last night, those of you who have already seen it too, what did you make of Jessica Chastain's performance?

Can you please include the Scarecrow actors Gene Hackman and Al Pacino. Its some pf their best work

dinasztie said...

I'm so glad about this outcome. Palin is a killer and I also think he even outdoes Kline. :)

Maciej said...

Richard Deryfuss - "American Graffiti"
James Coburn - "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid"
Kris Kristofferson - "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid"
Harvey Keitel - "Mean Streets"
MArtin Sheen - "Badlands"

Hackman and Pacino in Scarecrow
Newman in The Sting
Kietel in Mean Streets
Sheen in Bad Lands

Thats all I can think of right now. I guess Brando's Last Tango was a 72 performance

RatedRStar said...

Al Pacino - Scarecrow
Gene Hackman - Scarecrow
Harvey Keitel - Mean Streets
Paul Newman - The Sting
Martin Sheen - Badlands

RatedRStar said...

ive seen Zero Dark Thirty and I thought Chastain was brilliant and definately worthy of the best actress gong, Mark Strong and Kyle Chandler were also my favorites of the great supporting cast.

Lezlie said...

I agree with you RatedRStar, I would be glad is she wins the Oscar, although I'm not confident she will.

RatedRStar said...

I think Jennifer Lawrence may win but if she doesnt then I see Silver Linings Playbook being the big loser at the oscars like True Grit or Moneyball where itll get about 7 nominations and lose all of them.
