    Sorry its been so long since my last poll. My last poll saw Kevin Spacey as more Supporting with 63% of the vote, now I’m intrested in what you guys think of Gyllenhaal. I consider this a earlier version of Carol, both movies with gay characters with two leading performances and someone is forced down into supporting, shame.

    I don’t think Gyllenhaal’s placement is quite as egregious as Mara’s but yeah, I’d say Lead.

    To my way of thinking, a true supporting performance is one that could have been deleted from the story without seriously damaging the narrative arc of the film. Granted, it would probably have made the film MUCH less interesting, but it could have survived. Without Gyllenhaal the story collapses, which to me signals an automatic lead placement.

    There are hundreds of undeniable supporting performances where that doesn’t apply. Basically any catalyst to the plot character.

    I’m not sure if that definition works. Mark Rylance gave an undeniable supporting performance in Bridge of Spies, and you couldn’t have that movie without him or his character.
