Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1992: Results

5. Samuel West in Howard's End- West handles his part well, but he fails to leave that much of a lasting impression.

Best Scene: Bast first meets the Schlegel sisters. 
4. Steve Buscemi in Reservoir Dogs- Buscemi gives a good performance by giving a realistic depiction of a man who strives to be professional above all else.

Best Scene:  The Mexican standoff.
3. Richard Harris in Unforgiven- Harris gives a strong performance by nicely building up his character's prim pompousness just to have it cut down.

Best Scene: English Bob and Little Bill meet once again. 
2. Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross- Just one great monologue and he delivers it flawlessly.
1. Paul McGann in Alien 3- Good Predictions Michael McCarthy and Psifonian Although it was never in question who would take this year overall, it should be noted that McGann gives a great portrayal of uncontrollable madness.

Best Scene: Golic apologizes for a killing.

Michael McCarthy said...

Dawwwwww freakin Iceland. Okay then Best Actor 1982 then.

luke higham said...

Louis: Your rating & thoughts on Keanu Reeves in Dracula.

Psifonian said...

I dunno -- how about Bruce Dern in 1989 for "The Burbs" as my winning pick?

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I just realized you have to do a year from the 90's still. Can you do 1996 next? I just watched Lone Star and that could fill out a good 3 slots on the Alternate Supporting and DEFINITELY a slot for Lead with Chris Cooper.

Louis Morgan said...

Luke: It's pretty amazing how truly odd his accent it is and more importantly how he manages to make every facial expression and every line reading seem absolutely wrong.

Robert: That will probably be the next year from the 90's.

Matt Mustin said...

Louis, have you seen Frailty? I've heard great things about the film, as well as Matthew McConaughey's performance.

Louis Morgan said...

I recently saw the opening twenty minutes and McConaughey and Bill Paxton's performances both looked very promising as did the film itself. Unfortunately as I was interrupted, but I definitely will try to finish sometime soon.

Matt Mustin said...

Speaking of McConaughey, what's your ratings and thoughts on him and Harrelson on True Detective?

Anonymous said...

Louis seems like you hated devito in Batman , what do you rate him and why ?

Mark said...

Tarantino not in last place? You must have been in a good mood Louis haha.

Anonymous said...

Ratings/thoughts on the cast of Pacific Rim, please? And to boot Oscar Isaac in Drive, and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges in Crash.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Actually, your rating for Ludacris always bothered me. I actually thought he gave the BEST performance in Crash.

Louis Morgan said...

Matt: Both are giving great performances with McConaughey giving his career best.

Anonymous: A 2. It's really the type of performance you have to find entertaining to like, but I thought he went for too much of a broad note. Burgess Meredith forever.

Mark: Well Reeves could not really be denied for that performance could he?


Perlman - 3(Too little to do but I rather enjoyed him and I kinda wanted to follow his whole story instead)

Elba - 3(It's all about the motivational speeches which he does well)

Day - 2.5(I think the scientists were a bit of a missed opportunity with Day seeming much more a sitcom regular here than a scientist)

Kazinsky - 2(Iceman, eh he's no Val Kilmer)

Collins - 1.5(He's just kinda of there)

Gorman - 1.5(Overacting was the right way to go probably but the film needed some one much more talented to do it. Gorman just isn't very entertaining or funny here)

Hunnam - 3(He's enthusiastic and passionate in a very cliched fashion but it works for the film)

Kikuchi - 3(Same as Hunnam)

Isaac - 3.5(Short but effective performance as he really does make you feel sorry for his character)

Ludacris - 3.5(Avoids the melodrama fairly well here, and his often slightly comic delivery was probably the best choice for the overwrought film)

Robert: It was never a real rating I suppose as when I make the lists, which are tad unwieldy at times, I will build it up by going from film to film and listing the casts. Crash was one of the first so Ludacris sort of got lost in the shuffle, also it probably did not help that I listed him as Chris Bridges making it so I forgot who I was even talking about.
