Alternate Best Supporting Actor 1961: Results

5. Anthony Quinn in The Guns of Navarone - Quinn gives a solid performance that overcomes his technical miscasting far more effectively than his co-stars. 

Best Scene: His introduction.
4. Burt Lancaster in Judgment in Nuremberg - Lancaster might not give the best performance in the film, but he still gives a powerful portrayal of a man consumed by despair.

Best Scene: Janning's speech.
3. Eli Wallach in The Misfits - Wallach technically has probably the most thankless role out of the main cast, but is quite remarkable by giving such a honest portrayal of his character.

Best Scene: Guido tells Roslyn about his wife.
2.  Karl Malden in One-Eyed Jacks - Malden is easily the highlight of his film giving a striking performance where he cleverly subverts his usual unassuming screen presence.

Best Scene: Dad and his men confront Rio.
1. Tatsuya Nakadai in Yojimbo - Good Prediction Michael McCarthy. Nakadai gives a great and so brilliantly smug villainous turn that perfectly complements Toshiro Mifune's heroic turn.

Best Scene: The Final Duel.

Luke: Stephens - 4.5(A very effective performance as his performance keeps the mystery alive by balancing between acting just the honest child type mischief along with a mischief of a far more sinister nature. The performance works even further as he allows the interpretation either that the evil is supernatural or that of just a very emotionally damaged boy)

RatedRStar: I never really changed my mind as I always saw it as an equally good sorta thing for 61 supporting. I do think out of all them that Clift does make the most lasting impact.

I dunno about you, but I found Daisuke Kato oddly charming in 'Yojimbo'.
