Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2010: Results

5. Sam Rockwell in Conviction- Rockwell gives the best performance in his film giving some poignancy to his character's situation even though the power of his performance is limited by the film's problems.
4. Andrew Garfield in The Social Network- Garfield plays the emotions of his role a little to heavily at times but still gives an effective performance with a few stand out moments.
3. Chow Yun-Fat in Let the Bullets Fly- Yun-Fat gives a very entertaining villainous turn even if he could have brought just a little more menace to his role. 
2. Pierce Brosnan in The Ghost Writer- Brosnan gives a strong performance effectively creating the different faces of a career politicians with too many secrets.
1. Ben Mendelsohn in Animal Kingdom- Good Prediction Fisti. This might not be a great year for great performances as I don't give anyone a five, but it is a great year for good performances. My personal winner came down to the two criminal uncles of Mendelsohn and John Hawkes in Winter's Bone.

RatedRStar said...

Im very happy you liked Cillian Murphy (a very underated actor), what did ya like about his work in Inception.

Lezlie said...

Hi!

Very interesting ranking.
For 2001:

1. Gene Hackman - The Royal Tenenbaums
2. Ewan McGregor - Moulin Rouge!
3. Gael García Bernal - Y tu Mamá También
4. Diego Luna - Y tu Mamá También

Mark said...

What are the best alternate lead and supporting performances you've reviewed so far, Louis?

Michael Patison said...

For 2001:
Gael García Bernal in Y tu mamá también
Gene Hackman in The Royal Tenenbaums
Jack Nicholson in The Pledge
Kevin Spacey in The Shipping News
Billy Bob Thornton in The Man Who Wasn't There
Elijah Wood in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

RatedRStar said...

I really liked Gael Garcia, the only reason I didnt suggest him is because well, Y tu mama tambien is very um, kinky lol and I dont know if Louis would like it XD =D.

RatedRStar said...

ill change my suggestions a little slightly

Billy Bob Thornton - The Man Who Wasnt There
Ryan Gosling - The Believer
Gene Hackman - The Royal Tenenbaums
Jake Gyllenhaal - Donnie Darko
Gael Garcia - Y tu mama tabien


John Cameron Mitchell was good in Hedwig, but the film is just really poor, not that funny and the romance between him and Michael Pitt doesnt work at all.

Louis Morgan said...

Mark: This is not a definitive statement but I'll say:

Lead: Jeremy Irons in Dead Ringers

Supporting: Richard Jordan in Gettysburg

RatedRStar: Murphy actually made me care about the central mission giving it sufficient emotional weight through his character, who frankly could have been just a throwaway.

Also I don't recall having an aversion to kinky material.....

The way you feel about Murphy, Louis, is kind of how I feel about Watanabe.

Am I the only one who really enjoyed Mickey Rourke in Iron Man 2?

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Yes. He bordered on hilariously bad.

Louis Morgan said...

I love that you remembered David O'Hara as well.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

He was great despite having his voice dubbed over. A good testament to his ability as a character actor.

moviefilm said...

OK, Ewan McGregor for Moulin Rouge! and Billy Bob Thornton for any of his films he did that year are certain, I think (and hope). But what about Elijah Wood for The Fellowship of the Ring and Daniel Radcliffe for Harry Potter? Just for fun... :D

I actually would have given my vote to Mickey Rourke this year (no kidding). Such an unexpectedly deep, cool, ironic and stylish performance. It's some sort of a short summary of his role in The Wrestler for me, but it worked.
