Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2012: Results

5. Tom Hanks in Cloud Atlas- Hanks plays six different characters and gives four lacking characterizations showing his lack of range as an actor. The two characters in his range though are fairly well handled actually, unfortunately he really misses with the others.
4. James Spader in Lincoln- Spader is a delight in his role as political operative. Creating a unique character and naturally adding a great deal of humor to his film.
3. Sam Rockwell in Seven Psychopaths-Rockwell does his thing to the extreme here, and if you want a Rockwellian performance get Sam Rockwell. Rockwell is great being extremely funny while managing to still bring weight at the same time.
2.Samuel L. Jackson in Django Unchained- Jackson gives a terrific performance giving one of brilliant absurdity but as well a fascinating depiction of pealing behind his character's facades.
1. Javier Bardem in Skyfall- Good Prediction Micheal Patison and RatedRStar. This is is incredible year for supporting actors. Its a shame the academy chose to award three veterans giving descent but not particularly special performances and two leading performances. My choice overall this year goes to Javier Bardem as the greatest Bond Villain of all time. He is fun, entertaining, menacing, as well as even moving in a strange way. A true achievement that is just a performance enjoyable to watch but as well fulfilling character piece.

John Hawkes - The Sessions
Jack Black - Bernie
Richard Gere - Arbitrage
Jean-Louis Trintignant - Amour
Jake Gyllenhall/Michael Pena - End of Watch (I usually restrain myself to give only 5 alternate nominees, but Gyllenhall and Pena were both great and I guess their performances are unseparable)

River Phoenix - My Own Private Idaho (Alternate Best Actor 1991)

I love that you have 132 ranked Supporting Actors, that is epic! Love that Redmayne is so high, he is easily the best part of Les Mis. Disagree about Michael Shannon in Premium Rush, thought he was Razzie worthy (same with James Spader). But nicely done!

My only request for BA: Logan Lerman!

Mark said...

Wow, you really watched every single supporting actor performance out there. I'm going to guess that Christoph Waltz and Philip Seymour Hoffman are going to be in the lead category. Where would they be ranked if you kept them in supporting?

Suggestions:
LIAM NEESON IN THE GREY (PLEASE review him)
John Hawkes in The Sessions
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Looper
Jack Black in Bernie
Matthew McConaughey in Killer Joe

RatedRStar said...

I enjoyed Logan Lerman a lot in Perks Of Being A Wallflower, I would have given him a 4, same with Liam Neeson in The Grey, I liked him but I dont no if id go any higher than a 4 for him.

Michael Patison said...

What about the performances that actually WERE nominated for supporting this year? I see you have Arkin, Jones, and De Niro, but what about Hoffman and Waltz?

As for 2012:
Jack Black in Bernie
Colin Farrell in Seven Psychopaths
Richard Gere in Arbitrage
Jake Gyllenhaal in End of Watch
John Hawkes in The Sessions
Tom Holland in The Impossible
Logan Lerman in The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Jean-Louis Trintignant in Amour

Hmm, how about a year from the 50s to review, but which one? How about '51. Could you review Farley Granger in Strangers on a Train (I already expect you to review Robert Walker so I figured I toss Granger in too.

Michael Patison said...

Or are they both lead for you? I just thought of that possibility.

Michael Patison said...

That was dumb of me. Should've read the entirety of Bardem's final write-up.

Michael Patison said...

Ok, a few more things then I promise I'm done. :)

First, I'm disappointed you didn't like Sacha Baron Cohen and David Huttlestone, especially Cohen, more than just to the point that you thought they were serviceable. I'm sure you would've liked Cohen more if he had been able to do that other song for the Thénardiers but that's beside the point.

Second, just a few spelling things I noticed. The only big one is that it's Walton Goggins, not Walter Goggins, for Lincoln and Django Unchained at #70 and 77. The other, less important, error I saw was: it should be Ben Mendelsohn, not Ben Mendleson for Killing Them Softly and The Dark Knight Rises for #80 and 126.

Great work as usual and I can't wait for 2012 Lead!

RatedRStar said...

ill be voting for Granger for 51 too along with Walker so thers a decent chance he ll get in, plus 51isnt that strong of a snub year so.

Michael Patison said...

No I mean that's my request since I predicted correctly

Michael Patison said...

Oops, found two more. It should be Anupam Kher instead of Anupath Kapur for #111 and Dash Mihok instead of Dave Mihok for #123.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I guess the only two not-nominees I'd request are Logan Lerman and Jean-Louis Trintignat. I'm a little biased concerning Lerman, because I named Perks my #1 of the year. I geuss I'm just sentimental.

RatedRStar said...

I loved Perks, and I loved Lerman, I personally have a soft spot for Ezra Miller cause, well he is kinda cute =D.

Louis Morgan said...

Mark: If they had stayed supporting Hoffman would be first Waltz would probably would be fourth.

Michael: Yikes I seemed to have been auto correcting names to sound more standard for some reason. I'm surprised I didn't write Scott instead of Scoot honestly.

Anyway I consider Granger and Walker lead so I will include them both.

Michael Patison said...

In case you didn't understand my comment about Granger, that's my request for predicting correctly.

What do you think you'd give Redmayne? A 4.5 or a 5?
