Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1950: Results

5. Louis Calhern in The Asphalt Jungle- I hate to put Calhern fifth as I really liked everyone in this line up. Calhern gives an effective performance bringing a nice complexity to his role as an amoral lawyer.

Best Scene: Emmerich tries to double cross the Doc.
4. Alastair Sim in Stage Fright-Sim gives an entertaining performance that up shows the entire film around him.

Best Scene: Eve Gill brings Johnathan to Commodore Gill's home.
3. Takashi Shimura in Rashomon- Shimura performance gives an interesting and moving performance as a seemingly moralistic woodcutter who might be hiding something himself.

Best Scene: The woodcutter is called out by the commoner.
2. Richard Attenborough in Morning Departure- Richard Attenborough gives a very strong turn being appropriately intense as a man who goes to extremes due to fear, but as well quite tender as the very same man who finds courage within himself.

Best Scene: The remaining crew play a game of cards.
1. Masayuki Mori in Rashomon- Good Prediction Psifonian feel free to name another year and performance to go with it. Mori gives an incredible performance giving four different perceptions of the same doomed man. He is able to be chilling then heartbreaking, brave then cowardly, and his reserved style here works perfectly in creating a very memorable dynamic with Toshiro Mifune's flamboyant turn. I will keep Sanders as the winner for the moment but I will say he is on thin ice. I will have to get around to watching All About Eve again as that will make or break his placement over Mori.

Best Scene: The samurai tells his version of the story.

I believe Oskar Werner in Fahrenheit 451 is already a lock due to RatedRStar's request:
Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Burt Lancaster in The Professionals
Lee Marvin in The Professionals
Paul Newman in Harper
Max von Sydow in Hawaii
Eli Wallach in The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

RatedRStar said...

Oskar Werner - Fahrenheit 451 (one of my winning requests, thanks Michael)
James Mason - The Deadly Affair
Eli Wallach - The Good, The Bad and the ugly
Jean Louis Tringinant - A Man And A Woman
David Hemmings - Blow Up

RatedRStar said...

In my opinion, I think Clint Eastwood would be a waste of a choice since its just the usual man with no name performance that he does which is good but nothing 5 star.

Lee Marvin - The Professionals
Burt Lancaster - The Professionals
Jack Lemmon - The Fortune Cookie

I agree on Eastwood. He's a 4.5 in this one, for me. Same withFaFDM. AFoD is 5, though. I just hadn't written anybody else down for that year and didn't want to take the time to look.

RatedRStar said...

=D its cool Michael, I just don't like it when a double nomination happens unless they are 5 star, especially if Louis has already seen the film cause it means unknown gems could often get shut out and never seen on the rankings.

Mark said...

I hate to sound pushy, but I requested 1999 Lead a while ago. When will you get to that?

Louis Morgan said...

Mark: I apologize for the delay, but the years in the 90's seem to get the most requests. I will do 1999 lead when I return to the 90's this time though.
