    For the next entry in this poll series, I figured I’d do another Supporting Actor category after covering the 2010 BSA category. This time, I’ll do the one from 2014 where competition was very sparse with the same names announced at every precursor (Duvall, Hawke, Norton, Ruffalo, Simmons). But that’s what polls like this are for. From this lineup, my pick would be Ben Mendelsohn for Starred Up in spite of the film being ineligible. It’s been a year since I’ve seen the entire film yet Mendelsohn’s performance still lingers on me. 

    How about you guys? Who would you say is the biggest snub?

    Other, because no one on this list deseved a spot.  I’m betting Serkis wins this poll easily

    Channing Tatum, Foxcatcher. Even though he was the 100% lead of that film

    Voted for Mendelsohn, even though at times the performance felt like an Animal Kingdom rehash.

    YES. I would’ve nominated him in lead and Carrell in supporting personally with no nomination for Ruffalo not doing anything

    Brolin and Ahmed are my #1 and #2, respectively. How Duvall got in over either of them is atrocious.

    Agree to disagree. Sure, both characters are crooks. But his character in Animal Kingdom was much colder and more psychopathic imo.

    That Josh Brolin never gained any traction was perhaps my biggest disappointment of last year’s derby.

    Are there really people who want to hear the phrase “Academy Award nominee Tyler Perry”? I mean, yes, it would have prevented #OscarsSoWhite, but I feel like it wouldn’t have been worth it. I think Riz Ahmed is a great choice, and having just rewatched Nightcrawler, it is still a standout performance that did get a bit of traction. If the film had done better overall at the Oscars, he would have easily been nominated. Fassbender in Frank is another one that could definitely have been on the list. The physicality of the performance, the last few scenes, but particularly his use of body language to actually give an idea of what he was thinking behind the mask, all of it was brilliant. I wouldn’t put anyone above Simmons last year, but both of them would have been fine nominees.

    I went for other. Miyavi in Unbroken, and Logan Lerman in Fury both deserved wider recognition. Both cracked my top 5 alongside Simmons, Norton and Hawke.

    Other, I would have to go with someone like Neil Patrick Harris for his spinechillingly creepy performance in “Gone Girl”.

    I would half to add, that Brolin, was the best part of “Inherent Vice” and that Albert Brooks stole the show in “A Most Violent Year”.
