Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1971: Results

5. Bruce Dern in Drive, He Said- Dern does not have much of a part but he does make himself the best part of his film through his energetic performance.

Best Scene: The Coach reorganizes his team at half time.
4. Jack Albertson in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory- Albertson gives a nice warm supportive turn even if he is overshadowed by Gene Wilder for a large chunk of the film.

Best Scene: Grandpa Joe surprises Charlie with a Wonka bar.
3. Fernando Rey in The French Connection- Rey's is a minimalistic performance that realizes his French crime lord as an effective villain.

Best Scene: Frog one waves Popeye goodbye.
2. Andy Robinson in Dirty Harry- Robinson is a great villain by being both incredibly pathetic and exceptionally threatening.

Best Scene: Harry tortures Scorpio.
1. John Hurt in 10 Rillington Place- Good Predictions Mark, Moviefilm, and Michael McCarthy. This was a landslide victory for John Hurt as I did not have to think twice to give the win to him for his absolutely devastating performance as man who faces one tragedy after another that perfectly complements the terrifying lead performance by Richard Attenborough. I can sort of understand the academy's oversight of Attenborough because of their timidness for completely despicable characters, but there was no excuse for ignoring Hurt especially with the filler nominations given to Leonard Frey and Richard Jaeckel.

Best Scene: Timothy finds his wife after the murder.

I am choosing a best supporting actor 2007: John Travolta - Hairspray

Anonymous said...

@moviefilm: That's an interesting choice. I don't think he'll review him but I'd like to see where he ranks.

Michael Patison said...

@Anonymous: The nature of getting a year correct and then requesting a performance is that Louis will review it when he gets to that year.

Anonymous said...

@Michael: Oh. Well that frankly seems like a waste of a review then.

Michael Patison said...

Anonymous: That's your opinion. In my opinion, the requests are best utilized to request performances that probably wouldn't get nominated otherwise. Performances that you really like, even though they may not be spectacular. Stuff like that. Personally I'm unsure whether I think it's a waste. I think he's very funny in a somewhat underrated film, and it's most certainly one of his best performances (after SNF, Pulp, and possibly Grease).

1. Ron Livingston, Office Space

3. Forest Whitaker, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai
4. Tom Hanks, The Green Mile
5. Guy Pearce, Ravenous

Pitt better get a 5.

JackiBoyz said...

ill be quite surprised if he gets a 5 lol I think Carrey might get a 5, I think Pitt and Norton if they are nominated will get the same score, probably 4.5 I imagine.

Michael McCarthy said...

Norton was great in Fight Club, but I think Pitt stole the show.

Mark said...

Michael McCarthy: I agree. Brad Pitt's performance is one of my favorites.

RatedRStar said...

I think Carrey will win for one of his snubs (Truman, Man or Eternal Sunshine) but im not sure if its gonna be this performance that wins it for him.

Mark said...

Hopefully not for Truman. Nothing against Carrey, but Edward Norton in American History X is just almost unbeatable.

Anonymous said...

Mark: I agree about Norton.

As for Carrey, I love all three of those performances but Eternal Sunshine is far and away his best in my opinion. I've heard he's also very good in I Love You Phillip Morris, but I haven't seen that one.
