The last poll was for Jessica Lange in Tootsie with 70% of you voting her as supporting, now I want to know what you guys think of Spacey’s amazing performance, and imo he is a lead
This is an ensemble film. Spacey is supporting
He’s kind of the lead it’s not an egregious category fraud or anything.
I’d say everyone is supporting.
Lead – the sheer bulk of screentime taken up by Spacey’s interrogation scenes seals the deal for me. His 5th place billing is inconsequential (in fact I think the top 5-billed actors may intentionally be in alphabetical order). But I wouldn’t protest his supporting categorisation that vehemently, at least compared to some other more egregious cases.
Supporting. Byrne was the lead.
