Alternate Best Actor 1991: Results

5. River Phoenix in My Own Private Idaho- Phoenix gives a good performance even if it is somewhat muted by the film's direction and his co-star.

Best Scene:  Mike thinks about his mother.
4. Raul Julia in The Addams Family- Julia gives an entertaining enjoyable performance which shows that an actor can overplay and underplay a role.

Best Scene: The Mamushka.
3. Viggo Mortensen in The Indian Runner- Mortensen gives an effective intense performance that brings to life the unpredictable nature of his character.

Best Scene: Joe tries to convince Frank to turn his life around.
2. Val Kilmer in The Doors- Kilmer gives an excellent performance by becoming the role of Jim Morrison through his brief highs and his considerable downs.

Best Scene:  Any of Morrison's performances.
1. John Turturro in Barton Fink- Although Kilmer was great my favorite of year goes to John Turturro's portrayal of Barton Fink. Turturro leads through his incredible film in a brilliant fashion in both realizing his particular character but as well stands as an honest humane portrait of a normal man in this strange world as well.

Best Scene: The Life of the Mind.

Not exactly. He is both really. I personally find him leading, though I understand how people could put him in leading. I was just surprised.

Some people think Brando was Supporting in The Godfather lol.

RatedRStar said...

I dont think I need to suggest any 91 supporting since a whole lot of them got mentioned in some of the 91 reviews lol.
