    I’d be shocked if this result isn’t 100% Lead.

    The quintessential case of category fraud.

    I don’t know what to do with anyone who finds this to be a Supporting performance. Ordinary People is Hutton’s story, above all else. He drives it, and the effectiveness of his performance carries it through.

    You could definitely argue that Sutherland and Moore are co-leads with him (especially compared to Judd Hirsch’s and Elizabeth McGovern’s more definitively supporting performances), but I’d say that’s as far as one could go.

    My category fraud radar is highly sensitive, but with a case as egregious as this it simply self-destructs. A lead nomination would’ve been a far grander gesture towards Hutton’s performance than a compromised he’s-young-so-put-him-in-supporting win – and it robbed Joe Pesci.

    The academy had no alternative in 1980 since
    there was no other viable choice for the supporting award.
    joe Pesci was not going to win with DeNiro..His performance
    was totally 1 note and saying fuck every other word was not
    going to sit well with academy members back then..Some would
    argue that with HUTTON actually being 19 and in his first starring role
    opposite SUTHERLAND  who was at the peak of his career, it was
    therefore OK to place HUTTON in supporting and clear the way for
    an easy victory…The best actor race was stacked that year judging by
    SUTHERLAND’S own ommission when he was brilliant as well..
    My 5 wouldve been
    DENIRO IN RAGING BULL
    HURT IN THE ELEPHANT MAN
    SUTHERLAND IN ORDINARY PEOPLE
    HUTTON IN ORDINARY PEOPLE
    JACK NICHOLSON IN THE SHINING

    Duvall was great but it was actually seen on TV at the same time
    so i wouldve left him out…O’Toole was good and Lemmon was good
    but those 2 performances arent 2 of their best…

    Didn’t De Niro basically do the same? As well as “your mother’s c**t”.

    DeNiro got most of his praise for the physical transformation.

    You always have to remember when dicussing Raging Bull and Oscars that the film wasn’t particularly well received when it first came out. The aclaim only grew as time went by.  It was just too profane and violent for people back then.

    So… do the people who voted supporting want to make their case?

    I sure hope the people who voted supporting did so as a joke. I mean, how is this even up for debate. He’s the lead. Mary Tyler Moore and Donald Sutherland are both supporting.

    To be honest one of those supporting votes is mine. I wasn’t paying close attention and hit the wrong box.
