Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1991: Results

5. Samuel L. Jackson in Jungle Fever- Jackson gives a very good performance playing his crack addict quite effectively, and is easily the best part of his film.

Best Scene: Gator tries to get money from his mother one time too many. 
4. Laurence Fishburne in Boyz N The Hood- Fishburne gives a strong performance portraying both the kind wisdom and the strength of his character's authority in equal measure.

Best Scene: Furious gives his son words to live by. 
3. Ted Levine in The Silence of the Lambs- Levine goes for playing Buffalo Bill as just downright disturbing and succeeds at being so.

Best Scene: You know the line. 
2. Gary Oldman in JFK- Oldman gives a compelling performance as Lee Harvey Oswald that accomplishes making him into a fascinating character despite only appearing in brief and often silent flashbacks.

Best Scene: The flashbacks of Oswald on the day of the assassination. 
1. John Goodman in Barton Fink- My pick of the five and win overall goes to John Goodman for his portrayal here. Goodman is absolutely brilliant in his portrayal that is charming, humorous, heartbreaking and chilling all as the same character.

Best Scene: The Life of the Mind.

Great list of supporting actor performances from 1991. I also liked seeing Ice Cube at 11 on your master list.
