Farnsworth. And Stanton and Spacek are in my top 5 supporting.August 23, 2016 at 12:03 pm #1201912342
Haven’t seen Crowe or Washington (can’t believe I still haven’t seen The Insider) but I adore Farnsworth’s performance in The Straight Story. I’m pleasantly surprised by the support for him on this thread so far actually. Unfortunately he died horribly less than a year after his nomination, by shooting himself after battling with prostate cancer.August 23, 2016 at 2:31 pm #1201912410
Richard died the same way he did in Misery with a shotgun wound.August 23, 2016 at 6:19 pm #1201912488
All of the nominees are very good this year, but Richard Farnsworth stands out. I loved his work.
Crowe is immersed and not “Crowish”; Denzel is Denzel, Penn is Penn and Spacey is irreverent Spacey.
Seems as if Bruce Willis just cant buy a break. He’s understated and convincing in The Sixth Sense.
Nothing unworthy in Matt Damon’s Ripley either. I would have loved seeing someone from The Matrix in the mix somewhere.
Fat chance I suppose.August 24, 2016 at 8:45 am #1201912729
Brad Pitt in Fight Club is a tour de force performance that should have won every award under the sun.
But since he’s not listed, I am going with Spacey.August 24, 2016 at 9:36 am #1201912763
I haven’t seen Farnsworth, but if he’s as great as everyone has always said, I’d probably go with him. I’ll certainly still include him in my nominees, and for now, I’ll say Spacey.
Kevin Spacey, American Beauty
Richard Farnsworth, The Straight Story
Russell Crowe, The Insider
Matt Damon, The Talented Mr. Ripley
Denzel Washington, The Hurricane
Jim Carrey, Man on the Moon
Haley Joel Osment, The Sixth Sense
Edward Norton, Fight Club
Tom Hanks, The Green Mile
Brad Pitt, Fight Club
Bruce Willis, The Sixth SenseAugust 25, 2016 at 12:44 am #1201913128
Denzel Washington… his performance is heartbreakingAugust 25, 2016 at 5:47 am #1201913177
Spacey. One of the very best Best Actor wins
