Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2002: Results

5. Richard Gere in Chicago- Gere throws himself completely into the role which certainly offers some entertainment even if he over does it at some points.

Best Scene: Give em the old razzle dazzle.
4. Dennis Quiad in Far From Heaven- Quiad is somewhat restricted by the writing of his character but he excels in his portrayal of a very repressed man.

Best Scene: Frank tells his wife about his early vacation.
3. Andy Serkis in The Two Towers- Serkis creates a unique and very interesting character through his portrayal Gollum and his multiple personalities.

Best Scene: Smeagol and Gollum face off.
2. Robin Williams in Insomnia- Robin Williams gives probably his best performance giving a chilling performance as a killer who seems absolutely genuine in his innocence even while admitting he is completely guilty.

Best Scene: Walter Finch tells why he murdered the girl. 
1. Bernard Hill in The Two Towers- This is another very personal choice but I love Bernard Hill's work in the Two Towers. He takes a character that could have been a complete throwaway but instead brings such humanity and power into his role of King Théoden.

Best Scene: King Théoden mourns his son.

Yes! Hill for the win! Bow down before me, Doubting Thomases! :)

In all seriousness, though, glad to see he managed to win out. Such a wonderfully underrated turn.

1950 Lead Actor:
Toshiro Mifune - Rashomon (my win)
Sterling Hayden - The Asphalt Jungle
Edmond O'Brien - D.O.A.
Broderick Crawford – Born Yesterday
James Mason – One Way Street

@Psifonian: WE ARE UNWORTHY!

Not surprised that Hill won out of the 5, but certainly surprised that he took down Walken.

For 1950:
Marlon Brando in The Men
Sterling Hayden in The Asphalt Jungle
Toshiro Mifune in Rashomon
Toshiro Mifune in Scandal
Sidney Poitier in No Way Out (I'd say he's borderline as a sort of secondary lead, much like Pearce in The Proposition)
John Wayne in Rio Grande
Richard Widmark in No Way Out
