Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1964: Results

5. Frank Overton in Fail-Safe- Overton gives a moving performance as a General who must deal with a Nuclear crises as well as a hostile room of men.

Best Scene: General Bogan speaks with his Russian counterpart.
4. Nigel Green in Zulu- Green gives a strong performance as a career soldier who has the utmost conviction in his code.

Best Scene: Sergeant Bourne calls out the roster.
3. Fredric March in Seven Days in May- March gives possibly the best performance of his career in his assured and remarkable depiction of the President of the United States who must prevent a coup.

Best Scene: President Lyman confronts General Scott.
2. George C. Scott in Dr. Strangelove- Scott's performance is pure comedic gold as an off the wall General who he appropriately plays in an off the wall fashion. Scott's whole performance is one great risk that completely pays off.

Best Scene: Turgidson gives his own thoughts on what they should do.
1. Sterling Hayden in Dr. Strangelove - Sterling Hayden gives a hilarious performance where he does not exactly play it straight nor does he play it funny, but whatever he does do it's perfect. My win is Hayden as I enjoyed his performance the most on this watch although if I watched it again I might switch over to Scott.

Best Scene: Ripper asks Mandrake about being tortured.

Would Ustinov have kept his win if you had kept him in Supporting, Louis?

GradyTripp said...

Ah... of course you didn't see James Mason in THE PUMPKIN EATER then. Another great role of his.

GradyTripp said...

Oh, you did! And Finch is in your leading line-up now.

Louis, what did you think of Daniel Bruhl in Rush

Louis Morgan said...

Mark: I suppose would have, but there is nothing supporting about his character.

Anonymous: I have not watched Rush yet.

What did you make to The Train?

Louis Morgan said...

I thought it was a pretty good action film with a very solid lead performance by Burt Lancaster.

Michael Patison said...

What sort of rating would you give to everybody else in your Top 10?

Michael Patison said...

Also, you accidentally linked the results, Green, Scott, and Overton to Best Actor instead of Best Supporting Actor.

Louis Morgan said...

Michael: 4.5 for one scene wonder Wynn. 4 for the rest (although Volonté could probably get an upgrade if I ever see the Italian version of Fistful).
