Intriguing line-up:1. John Turturro2. Val Kilmer3. Viggo Mortensen4. River Phoenix5. Raúl Juliá
My guess:1. Phoenix2. Turturro3. Mortensen4. Kilmer5. JuliaLet's see if you think as highly of Phoenix's swan song as other critics.
1. Tuturro2. Mortensen3. Phoenix4. Kilmer5. Julia
Turturro gave the performance of his life in Barton Fink.
I actually just watched some of Phoenix and I'll change:1. John Turturro2. River Phoenix3. Val Kilmer4. Viggo Mortensen5. Raul Julia
Phoenix is nearly perfect, except one problem Keanu fucking Reeves who is absolutely fucking useless in the film.Kilmer doesnt have that problem and thats why im going for him, Turturro was great, I always thought Goodman kinda stole the show from him though.1.Val Kilmer2.River Phoenix3.John Turturro4.Viggo Mortensen5.Raul Julia
Reeves was actually pretty good in a movie called Thumbsucker. Hilarious, in fact.
RatedRStar: Oh, Goodman absolutely steals the show, and it's his best work too.

Hi!1. John Turturro2. Val Kilmer3. Viggo Mortensen4. River Phoenix5. Raul Julia
Oh, no place for Jeff Bridges in "The Fisher King"? That's sad! =/But oh, well... My predictions!^^1- Turturro2- Phoenix3- Kilmer4- Mortensen5- Julia
I remember Louis mentioning he wasn't that impressed with Bridges in that one. Funny, I found him to be the only impressive thing about The Fisher King.
Well the last spot for me came down to Julia, Bridges and Costner. I decided just to go with my favorite actor of the three. As for Bridges I did think he was the best part of the film, but honestly I did not like the film all that much.
Are you going to review him for The Fabulous Baker Boys?
It seems very likely considering few leading performances stick out as obvious nominees for 89.
89 leading seems really weak, these were what I had as the alternate nominees for 89Matt Dillon - Drugstore CowboyJohn Cusack - Say AnythingMatthew Broderick - GloryChow Yun Fat - All About Ah LongJeff Bridges - The Fabulous Baker Boys
John Candy in Uncle Buck?
I'm digging up some 1989 contenders right now (in addition to the ones mentioned);Michael Gambon in The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, Her LoverStephen Lang in The Last Exit to BrooklynJames Spader in sex, lies, and videotapeMichael Douglas in The War of the RosesMichel Blanc in Monsieur Hire
Spike Lee in Do the Right Thing is also a great option. I personally really like Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, but I know that's probably not a popular sentiment. Other than that, I love Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally... Bridges, Dillon, and Spader are all really good options as well.
good thing now is that Louis now has a bunch of performances to choose from lol when he gets to 89 lol =D.
Lee was the only bad part of Do the Right Thing.
Then we must agree to disagree completely on this one.
You didn't think he was wooden, even slightly?

Um, I know this is a little early (like a week), but here's some suggestions for 1991 supporting actor while they're fresh in my head:Laurence Fishburne in Boyz N the HoodSamuel L. Jackson in Jungle FeverGary Oldman in JFKJohn Goodman in Barton Fink (probably a foregone conclusion that he'll win)Donald Sutherland in JFKIce Cube in Boyz N the Hood (Depends on who you ask it seems. You can wither fault him for playing "himself", or praise him for giving a performance of quality he never would do again)Someone from the huge-ass cast in The Grand CanyonChristopher Lloyd in The Addams FamilyRoy Scheider in Naked LunchRussell Crowe in Proof (might be lead)Alan Rickman in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (delicious ham)Ted Levine in The Silence of the LambsChristopher Plummer in Star Trek VINed Beatty in Hear My Song

On an unrelated note, I recently saw the 2005 Merchant-Ivory The White Countess and thought it, and Ralph Fiennes, were both quite good. I like Merchant-Ivory productions more than most, but I thought this was one of their better efforts, especially in their later years (this was their last, I believe). I think it would definitely be worth the time.
Honestly, I wish Helena Bonham Carter would go back to her Merchant-Ivory roots instead of playing her husband's gothic Lolita sex doll in everything.
I completely agree. He two best performances undoubtedly were in Howards End and The Wings of the Dove, which while not Merchant-Ivory certainly has the feel of one of their movies. She's also not shabby in A Room with a View, though her inexperience shows some.
I'd give her the wins in both of those years (1992 Supporting and 1997 Lead).
