Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1996: Results

5. Gene Hackman in The Birdcage- Hackman steals the film with his hilarious dead pan performance.

Best Scene: Senator Keeley talks about foliage.
4. Pete Postlethwaite in Brassed Off- For most of the film Postlethwaite gives a very enjoyable performance in bringing such a conviction and pride in something so seemingly small, and then he successfully transitions to a true emotional poignancy at the end of the film.

Best Scene: Final speech.
3. Robert Carlyle in Trainspotting- Carlyle gives a very entertaining and intense portrayal of man who gets his kicks out of kicking a certain something out of any unlucky fellow in his way.

Best Scene: Begbie's final bar breakdown.
2. Derek Jacobi in Hamlet- Claudius easily could have been a throwaway role but Jacobi gives an excellent portrayal of Claudius as both an imposing villain but as well an honest the portrayal of guilt.

Best Scene: Claudius asks for forgiveness.
1. Steve Buscemi in Fargo- Good Prediction koook160.  Steve Buscemi gives a great portrait of idiotic criminal and is terrific in every one of his scenes, and it's only better due to his perfect chemistry with his partner in crime played by Peter Stormare who is also my very close number two for this year.

Best Scene: Carl negotiates with Wade.

Also, what are your ratings and thoughts for Charlton Heston in Hamlet, Harry Belafonte in Kansas City, Clifton James in Lone Star and the two leads for the Birdcage?

Matt Mustin said...

He already talked about the two leads in The Birdcage in the comments for Hackman's review, and he talked about Heston elswhere.

Kevin said...

Oops my mistake

Michael McCarthy said...

Gary Oldman-Sid and Nancy
Jeff Goldblum-The Fly
Harrison Ford-Mosquito Coast
Michael Rooker-Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
River Phoenix-Stand by Me

Michael McCarthy said...

DAMMIT Rooker's out until 90...

Matt Mustin said...

Something I've been wondering Louis; based on your usual criteria and your placement of certain performances, why do you consider Barry Pepper Supporting in The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada instead of co-lead with Tommy Lee Jones?

Anonymous said...

Gene Hackman- Hoosiers
Gary Oldman- Sid and Nancy
Jeff Goldblum- The Fly
Harrison Ford- Mosquito Coast
River Phoenix- Stand by Me

Michael Patison said...

RatedRStar said...

Chow Yun Fat - A Better Tomorrow

luke higham said...

My suggestions are pretty much the same as Anonymous's.

Maciej said...

Apart from my requesr of Hackman in "Hoosiers" I'd like to suggest:

Sean Connery - The Name of the Rose
Jeremy Irons and Robert DeNiro - The Mission
William Petersen - Manhunter
Wil Wheaton/River Phoenix - Stand by Me

luke higham said...

I forgot about The Mission Guys, so I would consider them as well,leaning towards Irons.

RatedRStar said...

I thought The Mission was a pretty poor film lol, with no thrills and its also far too heavy handed, plus the story is just dull, I also thought De Niro overplayed it a tad.

Louis Morgan said...

Kevin: Belafonte - 4(The only good part of a rather dull film. He mainly there is to give rather evil monologues which he delivers with a chilling delight)

James - 4(A surprisingly subtle performance from the man who specialized as the stupid hick Sheriff. He gives an effective and moving portrayal of man with too much of a past. He reflects well both the joy of nostalgic elements of the past and the weight troublesome parts of the past)

Matt: Watching the film I never thought he was leading rather always was supporting Jones's character's story.
