Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1966: Results

5. Richard Crenna in The Sand Pebbles- Crenna gives a solid performance that seems to create a more complex character then the film even wanted.

Best Scene: The captain tries to prevent a mutiny.
4. Orson Welles in A Man For All Seasons- Welles in one scene gives complex portrait of Cardinal Wolsey that is worthy of the complex man.

Best Scene: Wolsey tries to persuade More to support the King's divorce.
3. Richard Attenborough in The Sand Pebbles- Attenborough gives a moving performance that effectively conveys his character story almost entirely in his physical performance.

Best Scene: Frenchy talks to Maily for the last time.
2. John Hurt in A Man For All Seasons- John Hurt is the perfect weasel informant here by showing the motivation of what makes such a man.

Best Scene: Richard Rich testifies against Thomas More.
1. Lee Van Cleef in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly- Good Prediction Mark feel free to name a year and a performance. This year came down to the comedic and almost leading work of Walter Matthau against Lee Van Cleef's classic villainous turn. Like Wallach against Nakadai this was not an easy choice but I have to choose one so I am going Van Cleef's chilling performance as the titular Bad.

Best Scene: Angel Eyes has Tuco tortured.

For 1987:
John Candy in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Cary Elwes in The Princess Bride
John Lone in The Last Emperor
Steve Martin in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Sebastian Rice-Edwards in Hope and Glory

Some other options:
Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun
Nicolas Cage in Moonstruck
Nicolas Cage in Raising Arizona
Chris Cooper in Matewan
Billy Crystal in Throw Momma from the Train
Michael Douglas in Fatal Attraction
Gaspard Manesse in Au revoir, les enfants
Pelle Hvenegaard in Pelle the Conqueror
Klaus Kinski in Cobra Verde
Matthew Modine in Full Metal Jacket
Mickey Rourke in Barfly
Noah Taylor in The Year My Voice Broke

I expect Nicholson to retain his win, though I can always hope that Albert Brooks will unseat him. I also can't wait to see how William Hurt does on your rewatch of him.

Michael Patison said...

I'm confused. Are you considering Phil Silvers leading or supporting for A Funny Thing Happened?

Louis Morgan said...

Supporting. Such things will happen when one copies and pastes a long title.

Hey!

I know I didn't win anything, but...:P
I saw Mark requested 2006, and I've been planning for a long time if I win I would ask for 2006 too. When you get there, could you please consider Sergi López for Pan's Labirynth in the supporting category? Pretty pretty please? :D
