Alternate Best Supporting Actor 2013: Results

7. Colin Farrell in Saving Mr. Banks- Farrell hits the right notes but his film weakens his impact.

Best Scene: Death bed scene.
6. James Gandolfini in Enough Said- Gandolfini gives a sweet natural performance that finding the depth of an average man.

Best Scene: Albert drives Eva home after their awkward dinner.
5. Sharlto Copley in Elysium- An absurd villainous performance by Copley to be sure but a most enjoyable one to watch.

Best Scene: Kruger comes to stop the hijack. 
4. Matthew McConaughey in Mud- McConaughey in his larger supporting role gives a naturally charming and moving portrayal of a desperate but good man.

Best Scene: Mud explains his murder. 
3. Matthew McConaughey in The Wolf of Wall Street- A great one scene wonder by McConaughey that you remember even after the almost three hour film is over. 

Best Scene: Mark Hanna has lunch with Jordan Belfort.
2. Ben Foster in Ain't Them Bodies Saints- Foster gives an extremely moving performance by being absolutely genuine in his character's goodness.

Best Scene: Ruth talks to Patrick about the day he was shot.
1. Ben Foster in Lone Survivor- The year actually came down to the two  performances by the same man. At least at the moment I think I'll give the win to the supporting performance that I feel benefited his film the most during the year. Foster in Lone Survivor gives the intensity and visceral punch needed for the story of soldier's trying to survive that would have otherwise been lacking. It is a moving work that shows the gambit of emotions of the soldier who must fight for his life.

Best Scene: Axe tells Luttrell to send a message for him.

  1. Ben Foster in Lone Survivor
  2. Ben Foster in Ain't Them Bodies Saints

RatedRStar said...

You actually managed to see The Grandmaster =D, so um being that I obviously changed my winning request, what did you make of Leung.

Maciej said...

Louis, what were your thoughs and rankings of the "presidential" preformances in "The Butler"?

Also, what's next? Did you manage to see Nebraska or are you coming back to regular alternate years (I'm assuming you won't do alternate 2013 leading untill you see Dern).

luke higham said...

Louis: I'm guessing Forte is co lead with Dern.

What is your rating & thoughts on:
Bardem & Fassbender in The Counselor
Paul Dano in Prisoners & 12 Years A Slave.
David Oyelowo in the Butler
Harrison Ford in 42
Harrelson & Affleck in Out of the Furnace

luke higham said...

Louis: also ratings for Diaz & Cruz in the counselor.

luke higham said...

Louis: lastly, ratings for your overall supporting actress top 5.

luke higham said...

Louis: You've forgot to add the Star trek guys.
Don't take it personally, Just trying to help.

Anonymous said...

Have you seen Nebraska? I assume your ready to review Dern as there is no year planned.

Michael McCarthy said...

Stacy Keach and Bob Odenkirk are in the rankings, so I think we can all assume he saw Nebraska.

luke higham said...

Louis: I just forgot about this, but what was your rating & thoughts on June Squibb in Nebraska.

Maciej said...

Oh shoot, that's true! Funny thing, I did saw Odenkirk in the ranking and yet I failed to connect the facts :D

Matt Mustin said...

Okay, I did NOT expect Foster to beat Fassbender.

Michael McCarthy said...

Neither did I, and I really didn't think McConaughey in WoWS would be higher than Leto either.

luke higham said...

I think Dern's going to get either a 4 or 4.5.

George Woolf said...

What did you think of Geoffrey Rush?

Matt Mustin said...

What did you think of Side Effects, Louis?

Michael Patison said...

160. Zac Efron in James Badge Dale? I don't think that's what you meant to say.

Anonymous said...

Rate the Batman's .

joe burns said...

I agree about Farrell: He's quite good, but the film's handling of his plot-line is very limited.

Hope you can see Nebraska soon!

luke higham said...

Joe: from the look of the rankings, he's already seen it.

Louis Morgan said...

RatedRStar: Leung was good at being both cool and warm, but I found it strange that despite being the lead the film barely cared about his character.

Maciej:

Liev Schreiber(He was at least he was a bit entertaining. He basically was giving a comedic performance and in doing so he made the whole "one conversation with the butler changes the man" thing work better because he played into the ridiculousness of it)

John Cusack(Basically like Schreiber but less entertaining)

James Marsdan(Just a pretty standard and lame JFK Impression)

Robin Williams(Does not really make any impression with his time)

Alan Rickman (Absurdly awkward, Rickman frankly looked more comfortable falling off a high rise in Die Hard)

Luke:

Bardem 4 (Fun performance that actually found the right way with the rather unwieldy dialogue)

Fassbender 3.5 (His accent was very off, but he was actually quite devastating in the scenes where the counselor must feel the consequences of his actions)

Dano Prisoners: 4(The least mannered performance of his ever and quite an effective depiction of a traumatized man)

12 Years a Slave: 4(Simple character which he handles with the bluntness it should have. Look no further than Alex Perryfer in The Butler to see how such a role could be done all wrong)

David Oyelowo 3(Brought the most genuine emotion to the film, and aged well but he could not overcome the weaknesses of the film)

Ford 3(Not at his most natural, but at least he was trying and brought some nice warmth to the part)

Harrelson Furnace 4.5( He just goes for being the lowest of the low and brings all the uncouth evil his character should have with a great visceral sting.)

Affleck 4 (Short but makes the impact he needs to have)

Diaz and Cruz - 2

Squibb 4(I enjoyed her performance for the most part, she overdid it at times.

My top five Supporting Actress for 2013 is probably:

1.Kristin Scott Thomas - Only God Forgives
2.Julianne Nicholson - August Osage County
3. Sarah Paulson - 12 Years a Slave
4. Margot Martindale - August Osage County
5. June Squibb - Nebraska

George Woolf: I thought he gave a nice enough performance, but it did not leave that much of an impression on me.

Matt: I thought it was a good thriller with solid lead performances, but as usual I was annoyed by some of Soderberg's stylistic choices.

Anonymous:

West: 4
Keaton: 3
Kilmer: 2.5
Clooney: 1

Michael Patison said...

I'm disappointed you didn't like Melissa Leo in Prisoners enough to put her in your top 5 supporting actresses.

I would give Squibb a 3.5. She was entertaining, but I agree she overdid it. The biggest issue I had was that she was never able to find the right way to express why she loved Woody (or any member of her family for that matter). It was a difficult undertaking considering she's mostly given witty lines and discussions about her high school sexuality, and in my mind she never fully succeeds.

Also, what about the supporting players in Inside Llewyn Davis?

Louis Morgan said...

Michael: Leo's one I feel I should re-watch to see how her performance works knowing the revelations in the film.

Michael Patison said...

Fair enough.

But what about John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham, and etc. in Inside Llewyn Davis?

Louis Morgan said...

I have not watched it yet, but don't worry I definitely will able to for the alternate lead.

Michael Patison said...

Oh I didn't expect that. I hope you like Isaac just as much as me.

Grady Tripp said...

Where is Vithaya Pansringarm (ONLY GOD FORGIVES)?

luke higham said...

Grady: Louis, said Pansringarm would be put in lead instead.

luke higham said...

Louis: what were your ratings & thoughts on Tom Hardy in Warrior & Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
Also Pete Postlethwaite in the Town.

luke higham said...

Louis: Lastly, other than Inglorious Basterds & Fish Tank, which, I think you will review Fassbender in both, I would, Just like to ask on what was your rating & thoughts on him in 300.

luke higham said...

Michael McCarthy: I'm so sorry about your friend, Patrick.

I checked the daily mail, & there is a possibility that his body's been found.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Um... who did Pettyfer play in The Butler again?

Maciej said...

kook160: he played a plot device that raped Cecil's mother and killed his father.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Um, he didn't have enough time to be bad in his performance. He had, what, 30 seconds of screentime and one line? He was so unmemorable I wouldn't even put him in the ranking.

Louis Morgan said...

Koook: For me he pretty much set the tone for the picture with his awkward performance. The way he grabs Cecil's mother is less "I'm gonna violently rape you", and far more "Uh the script says I'm suppose to rape you know so let's go over there".

Louis Morgan said...

Luke: Hardy: Warrior - 4(Kind of goes for combination of Jake Lamotta and Terry Malloy. He is not on the level of those performances but he makes his approach feel natural and it works well for the film)

Tinker Tailor - 4.5(One of the great performances in a great cast. Hardy distinguishes himself way being the most emotionally volatile in the cast showing his character's relative inexperience with the game the rest have been playing for some time)

Pete Postlethewaite 4.5(Terrific one scene wonder and brings as much menace to his villain in one scene than some actors do in a whole film)

Fassbender 3(Very limited part but properly charismatic in the role, and giving the epic lines the epic quality required)

luke higham said...

Louis: some time in the near future, can you add Fassbender's performance in Jane Eyre to your 2011 ranking.

Louis Morgan said...

I'll definitely try to get to it.

luke higham said...

Louis: can I have your ranking & thoughts on the LOTR & Hobbit Films.

Louis Morgan said...

Return of the King(The crowning achievement for the whole series. When it hits high it really hits high pulling the stories together for an appropriately conclusion. I think even the multiple endings are warranted, although I think the fade to black was a mistake. My only major problem is that they really wasted Denethor as a character, although it was not helped by John Noble hammy performance.)

The Two Towers(This one is mainly about the action which it delivers in spades. Aided well by Bernard Hill's grand performance. It even balances it fairly well with the Frodo and Sam parts with Gollum, although I don't think what they did with Faramir was necessary.)

Fellowship of the Ring(Excellent beginning to the series and gets through all of the exposition in quite the exceptional fashion. I would say in this case Jackson's direction does seem a little less assured at times though)

Desolation of Smaug(An enjoyable bit of fun for the most part with the first half of Smaug's appearance being the highlight. I do think it went a bit overboard with the Elves and Orcs, but I did not exactly dislike those elements either.)

Unexpected Journey(Again much like Smaug I thoroughly enjoyed it although again there was more than there needed to be, but again I did not dislike them really)

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I love how upon re-watch you realized I was right about Noble's ACTING(!). Weirdly, I've liked him in pretty much everything else I've seen him in (The Good Wife, L.A. Noire, etc.)

RatedRStar said...

I liked him in La Noire but I thought the game was pretty poor, especially towards the end.

luke higham said...

Louis: what were your ratings & thoughts on Mckellen & Mortensen in The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King.

Matt Mustin said...

Louis, what did you think of The Wolverine, and of Hugh Jackman's performance in it?

luke higham said...

Louis: also, rating for Jackman in Wolverine.

luke higham said...

Louis: lastly, what were your thoughts on Nebraska, as well as your rating & thoughts on Will Forte.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

My question; Who would be your wins for Best Actress and Supporting Actress from 2000 to now?

luke higham said...

Louis: Philomena is online.

Louis Morgan said...

Luke: McKellen - 4.5(Excels again with a more substantial role and nicely shows the certain change in Gandalf to a somewhat colder but perhaps wiser presence.)

Mortensen - 4(Again the rock solid presence he is throughout the trilogy)

I thought the Wolverine was I guess watchable in an extremely standard action movie sort of way.

Jackman - 2.5(He looks like Wolverine should, and he's not bad, but he always seems like an approachable guy which is not the presence Wolverine should have)

My brief thoughts on Nebraska will be in my review of Dern.

Will Forte 3.5(He handles his part well but I do feel he is overshadowed by his co-star, but he does a nice enough job of sort of facilitating the other performance)

koook:

For Actress I still feel I need to see some films for my list to be satisfactory, to me at least, but supporting actress would be:

2000: Harriet Sansom Harris - Memento
2001: Gwyneth Paltrow - The Royal Tenenbaums
2002: Miranda Richardson - Spider
2003: Shohreh Aghdashloo - House of Sand and Fog
2004: Virginia Madsen - Sideways
2005: Emily Watson - The Proposition
2006: Abigail Breslin - Little Miss Sunshine
2007: Cate Blanchett - I'm Not There
2008: Amy Adams - Doubt
2009: Monique - Precious
2010: Jackie Weaver - Animal Kingdom
2011: Jessica Chastain - Take Shelter
2012: Doona Bae - Cloud Atlas
2013: Kristin Scott Thomas - Only God Forgives

luke higham said...

Louis: Can I have ratings of your picks from 2001 to 2012.

luke higham said...

Louis: also, your thoughts on Russell Crowe in Master & Commander.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I understand on Actress. My own lineup is sort of iffy, but here goes nothing. In comparison, my Supporting Actress Lineup and then Lead;

2000: Erika Christensen in Traffic
2001: Carrie Anne Moss in Memento
2002: Samantha Morton in Minority Report
2003: Holly Hunter in thirteen
2004: Patricia Clarkson in Dogville
2005: Amy Adams in Junebug
2006: Emily Watson in The Proposition
2007: Cate Blanchett in I'm Not There
2008: Viola Davis in Doubt
2009: Mo'Nique in Precious
2010: Marion Cotillard in Inception
2011: Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids
2012: Emily Blunt in Looper
2013: Lupita Nyongo'o in 12 Years a Slave

As for Lead-

2000: Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for A Dream
2001: Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive
2002: Jennifer Aniston in The Good Girl (Yes, really, I will stand by this performance to my dying day.)
2003: Evan Rachel Wood in thirteen
2004: Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2005: Michelle Monaghan in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
2006: Maggie Gyllenhaal in Sherrybaby

2010: Natalie Portman in Black Swan
2011: Rooney Mara in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
2012: Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook
2013: Brie Larson in Short Term 12

Matt Mustin said...

You think Michelle Monaghan is lead in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

Yes. She's borderline, but she feels like a Lead to me. I also feel like she does NOT get the credit she deserves for that performance. She managed to leap over the only pitfall in Shane Black's script; its sexism. She took a potentially shallow character/object of affection and made her three dimensional.

Matt Mustin said...

Oh, she's great, but I think she's easily Supporting.

koook160 (Robert MacFarlane) said...

I can see that, but my gut is telling me Lead. Fair warning, my definition of what constitutes a Lead performance is very, very loose.

Michael Patison said...

When will we see Dern's review?

Louis Morgan said...

Luke:
Paltrow - 4.5
Richardson - 5
Aghdashloo - 4.5
Madsen - 4.5
Watson - 5
Breslin - 4.5
Blanchett - 5
Adams - 4.5
Monique - 5
Weaver - 5
Chastain - 4.5
Doona Bae - 4.5
Thomas - 4.5

Crowe(Very interesting performance by Crowe by downplaying his usual intensity to give an interesting portrayal of a strong willed but warm commander)

Michael: I'm working on it.
