Considering I really wanted Anna Kendrick to win awards for her amazing turn in Last 5 years, I just thought it would be nice to talk about the tiny performances we stumble upon that you will reward.
Mine this year is Sarah Paulson in Blue Jay. Oh I would give the world for this to win her an Oscar. Of course, it is too late but damn!
Also, if she had more scenes Melissa Benoist in Patriot’s Day.December 13, 2016 at 12:28 am #1201968264
Completely agree on Sarah Paulson, she was excellent in Blue Jay.
I also loved Jesse Plemons in Other People, Ralph Fiennes in A Bigger Splash, Gillian Jacobs in Don’t Think Twice, Ed O’Neill in Finding Dory and Alicia Vikander in The Light Between Oceans.December 13, 2016 at 8:01 am #1201968359
Greta Gerwig in 20th Century Women and Peter Sarsgaard in Jackie.
How these two performances arent getting traction is sad and infuriating. Two perfect “supporting” performances that totally anchors their respective films. 20th Century Women would be dull and campy without Abbie (Gerwig), and Portman’s entire crescendo and superb grief buildup would be forced and extremely cringeworthy without Bobby Kennedy’s steadfastness and presence.
Both Gerwig and Sarsgaard did amazing work.December 13, 2016 at 8:24 am #1201968371
It is not a tiny performance and I got quite a few mentions when the film came out, that was a lone time ago though, but Alden Ehrenreich still remains one of my top few supporting performances of the year for his dim cowboy in “Hail Caesar!”. He steals the film from some very capable people. Ralph Fiennes was also hilarious in the same film and his role is borderline teeny-tiny. You wouldn’t have known until recently he was so damn funny since so much of his work is serious as a heart attack.December 13, 2016 at 9:06 am #1201968384

Thus far, my fav performance of the year is Renner in “Arrival”.December 13, 2016 at 11:55 am #1201968471
As average as this supporting actor year is, the only standouts I’ve seen were Jeremy Renner and Michael Shannon. How Renner is getting no buzz what so ever is beyond meDecember 13, 2016 at 11:02 pm #1201968882
Renner did nothing in Arrival. He was a prop.December 13, 2016 at 11:24 pm #1201968888
Don’t want to turn this into politics, but sure go ahead call Clinton the liar, while a melted orange is poised to next sit in the Oval Office.December 15, 2016 at 11:04 pm #1201970638

Just saw Gillian Jacobs in Don’t Think Twice the other night. That moment where she just whispers to Keegan-Michael Key that she belongs in the well was beautiful. It is a shame she and the film showed up nowhere, not even at the spirits, except Critics Choice.
