Alternate Best Actor 1987: Results

5. Mickey Rourke in Barfly- Rourke is all about his unique creation of his character of the Barfly and although unorthodox it does work quite effectively for his film.

Best Scene: Henry first goes home with Wanda
4. Bruno Ganz in Wings of Desire- Ganz is again mostly about conception and like Rourke it works wonderfully well for his film.

Best Scene: Damiel, now fallen, meets with Peter Falk.
3. Gary Oldman in Prick Up Ears- Oldman uses his chameleon abilities in a terrific fashion to giving a complex portrait of a writer whose talent, ego and appetites grow faster then his partner can take.

Best Scene: Orton becomes the dominate one in his relationship with Halliwell.
2. John Candy in Planes, Trains and Automobiles- John Candy gives a great performance that is very entertaining on the surface but also quite a heartbreaking portrait underneath.

Best Scene: "You wanna hurt me?"
1. John Lone in The Last Emperor- My favorite performance of the year belongs to John Lone's portrayal of the Last Emperor of China. Lone gives a fascinating and very moving portrayal of the journey of a ruler who did not even have power over himself.

Best Scene: The elderly Puyi visits his old home.

Going off of Kevin's request, I definitely think you should look at Will Patton in No Way Out. Not necessarily review him, since that's a performance I'd think you'd either love or hate, but for that reason I think he deserves a look.
