    Interesting to see that people are placing Murray as second in 2003 despite the fact that he was not well-liked, did not campaign and only had the Globe. Depp had the SAG, the fan factor and was seen as somewhat due after snubs for Edward Scissorhands and Ed Wood.

    Murray, if I remember correctly, had a slew of critic awards: Globe, BAFTA, National Society, New York, LA, among others. So I’m pretty sure he’s well-liked, at least his performance was, and pretty much gives him runner up status. The only major award he lost was SAG. He was my personal pick.

    2012 – Joaquin Phoenix, The Master – I know that sounds crazy, but I think supporters were very passionate about this performance, and probably swayed a lot of Cooper/Jackman voters post-nominations after watching the films.
    2011 – George Clooney, The Descendents
    2010 – Javier Bardem, Biutiful
     – again, another one of those passionately-supported performances that might have rounded up a lot of other voters. In a year when the frontrunner was miles ahead of the others, with probably a majority of the votes (like Daniel Day-Lewis winning for Lincoln this year), it wouldn’t have taken much to push someone like Bardem in the 2nd place position (maybe about 15%).
    2009 – Colin Firth, A Single Man – BAFTA winner
    2008 – Mickey Rourke, The Wrestler – no question about it. I’m curious to know how close the vote was between him and Penn.
    2007 – Viggo Mortensen, Eastern Promises
    2006 – Peter O’Toole, Venus
     – Even though all signs were pointing to Forest Whitaker winning that night, I still had the same inkling that O’Toole could upset in the same way I had an inkling that Crash might upset Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture. He was way overdue, and most voters probably knew it was their last chance to award him.
    2005 – Heath Ledger, Brokeback Mountain – although it wouldn’t surprise me if Phoenix or Strathairn were in 2nd place either
    2004 – Leonardo DiCaprio, The Aviator – Depp probably had a lot of votes due to not winning the year before, and Eastwood was the respected veteran, but DiCaprio had the Globe and the most buzz of the remaining nominees.
    2003 – Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean – just because of the SAG win. I think it was very close between him and Bill Murray though, and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if Murray was in 2nd.
    2002 – Daniel Day-Lewis, Gangs of New York – SAG winner
    2001 – Russell Crowe, A Beautiful Mind
    2000 – Tom Hanks, Cast Away
     – but perhaps Ed Harris had built up the same momentum that got Marcia Gay Harden the Oscar?
    1999 – Denzel Washington, The Hurricane
    1998 – Ian McKellen, Gods and Monsters – only because he won Critics Choice. This is a tough one to call. Jim Carrey won the Drama Actor Globe and wasn’t nominated at the Oscars, and Benigni won BAFTA and SAG.
    1997 – Peter Fonda, Ulee’s Gold – I suppose, since he won the Golden Globe Drama
    1996 – Ralph Fiennes, The English Patient – very tough call (it could have easily been any of the other men), but I give Fiennes the edge as the only BAFTA nominee, and being snubbed for Schindler’s List 3 years earlier.
    1995 – Sean Penn, Dead Man Walking – you could also make a strong case for a posthumous win for Troisi
    1994 – John Travolta, Pulp Fiction
    1993 – Liam Neeson, Schindler’s List
     – on the strength of the film at the Oscars that year
    1992 – Denzel Washington, Malcolm X
    1991 – Nick Nolte, The Prince of Tides

    1985: Jack Nicholson, Prizzi’s Honor

    Travolta was the least voted in 1994. I’m sure

    And it’s hard to imagine a second place in 2007, but why so many of you think Mortensen was the runner-up? Small movie, very anti-academic and the nomination was the reward. I don’t see him in the 2nd place, at all.

    Murray was the 2nd place in 2003, that’s for sure. Overdue veteran in a BP nominee and winner of most the critics awards + GG + BAFTA. Depp’s win for Pirates of Caribbean was a fluke.

    87 is a interesting year. I would say… Mastroianni?

    Travolta was the least voted in 1994. I’m sure

    While you very well may be correct on that, I’m curious to know why you’re so certain he came in last place.

    And it’s hard to imagine a second place in 2007, but why so many of you think Mortensen was the runner-up? Small movie, very anti-academic and the nomination was the reward. I don’t see him in the 2nd place, at all.

    Before it became evident that Day-Lewis was going to win, I was actually quite sure that Mortensen would win an Oscar for the transforming role in Eastern Promises, for which he stripped down for and was fresh off of the success of Lord of the Rings.  I had the same feeling when I saw a clip of George Clooney in Syriana, that it would win him an Oscar (even if I later changed my prediction to Giamatti!). Speaking of which, I think Clooney’s supporting actor win was far too recent for the Academy to want to vote for him to win for Michael Clayton, however it was probably close between Mortensen and Clooney for the #2 and #3 spots. Both were nominated at all of the important groups (SAG, BAFTA, Globes, Critics Choice). Johnny Depp only had Globe and Critics Choice nominations, and Tommy Lee Jones had nothing.  Mortensen won Satellite, Toronto, and was runner-up to Day-Lewis at New York and San Diego, while Clooney had National Board of Review, San Francisco, Washington DC (but no Satellite nomination), and was runner-up to Day-Lewis at Southeastern Film Critics and Dallas-Fort Worth. So, a runner-up position for Mortensen is entirely possible, and if not, a close 3rd.

    Depp’s win for Pirates of Caribbean was a fluke.

    How was Depp’s SAG win a fluke? Were there mass DVD screeners sent out for Pirates?
