    Oh, good point – but I preferred him in Dog Day Afternoon

    6) Robert Shaw, Jaws
    7) Orson Welles, The Third Man
    8) Nick Nolte, The Thin Red Line
    9) Eli Wallach, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    10) Steve Buscemi, Fargo
    11) Brad Pitt, The Tree of Life
    12) Stephen Boyd, Ben-Hur
    13) Peter Sarsgaard, Shattered Glass
    14) Lee J. Cobb, 12 Angry Men
    15) Alan Rickman, Die Hard
    16) John Goodman, Barton Fink
    17) Orson Welles, Touch of Evil
    18) R. Lee Ermey, Full Metal Jacket
    19) Jason Robards, Once Upon a Time in the West
    20) Ray Bolger, The Wizard of Oz
    21) Kevin Spacey, L.A. Confidential
    22) George C. Scott, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb 
    23) Fred MacMurray, The Apartment

    ^^^ Great list.  Robert Shaw not being nominated for Jaws pains me.

    Sean Connery, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.  A perfect and very memorable supporting performance.

    Even though these performances aren’t as good as the ones in the poll, I thought Sam Rockwell should have been nominated for The Way Way Back, and James Gandolfini should have been nominated for Enough Said this year.

    Oh and I think Steve Carrel should have been nominated in 2007 for Little Miss Sunshine.

    I voted other with these performances in mind:

    John Cazale, DOG DAY AFTERNOON
    Daniel Day-Lewis, MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE
    Sterling Hayden, DR. STRANGELOVE
    Bertl Lahr, THE WIZARD OF OZ
    Peter Lorre, THE MALTESE FALCON
    Edward G. Robinson, DOUBLE INDEMNITY
    George C. Scott, DR. STRANGELOVE
    Robert Shaw, JAWS 
    Orson Welles, THE THIRD MAN 
    James Whitmore, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION 

    Scott would be my choice with Robinson, Shaw & Welles close behind…

    From the offered list these guys could inter mingle with my list: Cazale, Cooper, Hopper, Kingsley.

    That is another one I was pretty close to including. Though I have to admit, of all the 1989 Supporting contenders, I’m pretty partial to James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams. My line-up would’ve probably replaced Landau, Brando, and Aykroyd with the two of them and Alan Alda for Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    Oh, I love James Earl Jones in Field of Dreams.  He and Burt Lancaster added so much weight to that film.  I would give an edge to Connery since he did more with the role, playing comedy and drama in a way only he can.  But Jones definitely should be in the conversation.  That monologue on baseball really puts Field of Dreams a cut above other sports movies.  Actually, all three of these actors are pretty similar, with fantastic voices and screen charisma; Lancaster was a huge fan of Connery’s and was the first person to stand up when he finally won an Oscar.
