    • Best Actor (Greg Kinnear)
    • Best Actress (Toni Collette)
    • Best Supporting Actress (Abigail Breslin) 
    • Best Supporting Actor (Paul Dano)
    • Best Supporting Actor (Steve Carrell)
    • Best Supporting Actor (Alan Arkin)

    ^I would have nominated Collette and Breslin in supporting (but my winner is still Meryl Streep for Prada). The film didn’t have a lead imo. Carell and Arkin definitely for supporting actor.

    I’m very glad SAG gave these guys the win.

    Now, if we all say Little Miss Sunshine three times, will more Candymen come forth?

    Steve Carell in supporting actor. Greg Kinnear for lead actor wouldn’t have been completely underserved. Other than that, nothing. It’s a true ensemble, but I think Kinnear is the only one who can be considered a lead.

    Carrell was robbed that year of a supporting nod. He and Collette would have been worthy double supporting winners that year a la The Fighter. 

    My noms:
    – Best Actor – Greg Kinnear
    – Best Supporting Actor – Steve Carrell
    – Best Supporting Actor – Alan Arkin 
    – Best Supporting Actress – Abigail Breslin
    – Best Supporting Actress – Toni Collette

    ^

    I agree with you. Kinnear’s Richard Hoover has grown on me. He’s such a ‘nerd’, but I wanted to applaud his actions by the end. That was a year decided early. Nobody was taking it away from Mirren, Whitaker, or Hudson. I laughed out loud when Arkin won, in a good way. You could sense that one coming, at the 11th hour.

    Plus, that was Marty’s year. I’m not sure I would have given a Director nod to LMS, especially over the nominees. Who does one drop to make room for Dayton/Faris? Still, I dont believe a nom here would have been undeserved.

    I would rather have seen LMS win BP, but give the BD win to Scorsese. Happy it won Screenplay however. It’s light and miles apart from its fellow nominees but has something just as compelling  to say.

    Comedies get the shaft so often.

    I never understood the love for Steve Carrell in LMS.  I think he’s good, but nothing great.

    I think I’m also the only person in the world who thinks Greg Kinnear gives the best performance in the movie…

    Collette and Breslin, both in Supporting. 
    Arkin a nom, but not the win [over Eddie Murphy; clearly a career-win over a best-performance win]. But still a good performance by Arkin.

    Supporting Actor: Greg Kinnear (winner)
    Supporting Actor: Paul Dano
    Supporting Actress: Toni Collette (winner)
    Supporting Actress: Abigail Breslin  

    I think Carell was not really good.

    Supporting actor for Carrell and Supporting Actress for Collette, the real stand-outs for me.

    I think Greg Kinnear should’ve been in Lead, especially being a weaker year for leading men.

    Toni Collette is borderline, but I will place her in Supporting.

    Steve Carrell and Paul Dano should’ve been nominated in Supporting.

    Basically the entire cast EXCEPT for the two that were nominated (Arkin and Breslin) should’ve been nominated.

    As for who should’ve won, I’d say Collette would be in a tight race with Catherine O’Hara or Maribel Verdu while Carrell and Dano would fight it out with Jackie Earle Haley.

    I’ve always felt there is only one Lead and that’s Abigail, but I get so much grief over saying this. She’s referred to in the Title fer crying out loud. But that too I’m told is irrelevent.

     Of course it’s an ensemble piece, and one of the great ones too. I think this category “confusion” did the film no favours. And yes I see the merits in calling it Ensemble with no clear leads.

    Steve’s good. He made this just before The Forty Year Old Virgin came out to vast audiences. I’m not surprised he was overlooked for a nomination. Hasnt he been his entire career?

    Btw I dont agree with your assertion re Arkin and Breslin. They’re the first two I would cite for Oscar considerations.
