Best Supporting Actor 2001: Results

5. Jon Voight in Ali- This performance simply should never have been nominated. He gives a lackluster impersonation that's it.
4. Jim Broadbent in Iris- Broadbent's performance is a good and quiet performance that fully realizes the struggle of his character to come to grips with the illness of his wife.
3. Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast- Kingsley sometimes plays the part slightly stiffly, but most of the time he does give a fairly entertaining villainous turn.
2. Ethan Hawke in Training Day- Hawke gives a consistently effective reactionary performance. It is an easy performance to empathize with, and creates an interesting character development.
1. Ian Mckellen in The Fellowship of the Ring- Mckellen gives a strong performance that fully brings his character life. Mckellen manages to bring the wisdom, the heart, and the power all fully to life in his performance.

How do you feel about Ed Harris in A Beautiful Mind as an alternate?

Louis Morgan said...

He is rather effective in a mysterious role and would have been a far better choice than Voight.
