    IMO one of the most competitive years in Supporting Actor. Especially since theres rarely any competition in that category. Also I think Nicholson, Pacino, or Davidson would’ve made worthy winners that year. Though I have yet to see Hackman.

    Where is David Paymer?

    I really love Gene Hackman and he definitely was strong in Unforgiven.

    Also, Al Pacino was WAY better here than he was in his leading performance in Scent of a Woman.

    For me, I was not a fan of Jack Nicholson or of A Few Good Men.

    Jaye Davidson may not have had a career (which was really his choice in many ways) but I can’t help but feel like he created such a truly mysterious and intriguing in character which, while it had juiciness on paper, still could have been bland, but he pulled it off; his work (and the film) stays with me. He gets my vote.

    Hackman definately deserved it. Its the most complex character of the 4.

    Jaye Davidson is really overrated in The Crying Game, flat and wooden with absolutely zero complexity. Its the nature of the role that tricks people into thinking it was some kind of great acting feat when it was just great casting. Plus his performance doesnt really hold up against Steven Rea’a excellent and more subtle work.

    I think its ridiculous people make it out like Hackman beating Davidson was some kind of travesty anyway, especially when Hackman won most of the critics awards that year. Davidson was lucky to be nominated.  This isnt like when Tommy Lee Jones beat both Fiennes and DiCaprio.

    Hackman just barely over Pacino

    1. Hackman
    2. Pacino
    3. Davidson
    4. Paymer
    5. Nicholson

    Love Nicholson, but this performance was not all that special IMO.

    This reminds me of Stephen Rea’s perf. He was far better than the winning perf that year imo.

    I went with Hackman.

    Probably David Paymer’s performance wasn’t worth mentioning because he was in a terrible film. He didn’t have a chance at winning to begin with.

    2. Pacino
    3. Nicholson
    4. Davidson
    5. Paymer
