    Not listed (unless I missed them) are three people who were nominated for supporting who wereas much or more leads than any of those you list as fraudulent supporting – Jake Gyllenhaal/Brokeback Mountain, Cate Blanchett/Notes on a Scandal and Casey Affleck/Assassination of Jesse James. All three were indisputably co-leads.

    Philip Seymour Hoffman/The Master will join them as also being among the worst cases.

    I only dealt with winners who prevailed in a dubious category classification, not nominations. If I did the latter, the list would’ve been a mile long. As is, I didn’t have room for such fraudsters as Jack Lemmon (Mr. Roberts), Kevin Kline, Rachel Weiscz, etc.

    Duh – sorry – that would exclude them; not enough coffee yet to recognize the obvious.

    But good to point these out – I disagree with a couple, and generally don’t mind smaller roles competing for lead (since basically they are under a handicap against bigger roles). 

    I hope the acting branch rebels and refuses to go along with PSHoffman as supporting. I think there is a real chance they will.

    Why is Lange on this list for her supporting turn in Tootsie?

    FYI:

    Jessica Lange in Tootsie (1982)
    29 minutes and 35 seconds on-screen
    19 scenes
    27% of film’s total screen time

    Teri Garr in Tootsie (1982).
    15 minutes and 17 seconds on-screen
    15 scenes (11 of which clock in at less than 1 minute)
    14% of film’s total screen time

    While I agree with most of the list, I agree have to agree with Sister Jude, Jessica Lange has no business being on there. Her and Fletcher were placed in the right category. Hopkins and Robbins should be in over them.

    Lange was Supporting in Tootsie.. I just re-watched it earlier this year and my hunch (or memory) still stood correct imo of course. That film had one Lead, though Teri Garr was equally good in a completely different type of role.
