    Obviously a very strange year for the category.

    Critics awards favored Haley and Hounsou.
    Televised precursors favored Murphy.
    Academy favored Arkin.

    I will post my thoughts later after more consideration.

    Arkin won a career award while the best supporting performance from LMS was not even nominated.  I voted for Wahlberg.

    Who do you think was the best in LMS?

    I’m guessing the allusion is to Steve Carell.

    From this lineup…Eddie Murphy. Despite the fact that I despised Dream Girls.

    Arkin was not only a horrible winner, but shouldn’t of even been nominated. Carell did a hell lot more than him and was snubbed.

    I’m surprised Sheen, Nicholson, DiCaprio, and Carell didn’t make the lineup.

    This is what I thought of the nominees:

    Arkin: He was great but I only thought he was the dark horse.
    Murphy: I didn’t like him in the movie and truth be told the movie itself besides J-Hud.
    Djimon: He was my pick to win. 
    Haley: He was excellent and had a shot but I thought and was probably right that he wouldn’t win.
    Whalberg: Let me start off by saying I love that movie. Now, that nomination should have went to Jack Nicholson or Matt Damon for the movie.

    I thought Arkin was great…and even though people may have voted for him on a career basis, I feel the performance stands up.  Also, I wish Carrell has been nominated.

    1. Arkin
    2. Haley
    3, Hounsou
    4. Murphy
    5. Wahlberg

    I think Wahlberg is a good actor, I’m just not sure why he got nominated for this.

    Could it have been his accent? Lol. I really like Wahlberg in his films. Wish he could have received an acting nom for his central work in The Fighter.
    So happy for Jackie Earle as well.  Welcome back!

    I admire Jackie Earle Haley so much as an actor, and particularly for this role. He’s probably one of the more articulate actors when discussing his character motivations and he has the ability to switch from one persona to the next in a way that seems effortless (be it his character in Little Children, Rorschach in Watchmen, or Guerrero in the TV show Human Target). 

    Although I figure that the nomination was a reward in itself for a great character actor finally making his return to Hollywood, he definitely impressed me enough to deserve the win.  It’s a shame Michael Sheen couldn’t have been nominated for The Queen.

    Also, don’t many people around here complain that Hounsou had a leading performance?

    For me this is an amazing line-up. I really like all the performances, but one has stayed with me till this day, and that performance is Djimon Hounsou. He really breaks your heart in Blood Diamond. It’s incredible!

    Alan Arkin was just being himself in LMS; therefore, I don’t think that he should have won the Oscar. I’m trying to choose between Haley and Wahlberg. Haley made a pedophile sympathetic, which is hard to do, so I’m choosing Haley.

    How did Eddie Murphy lose here?   

    Alan Arkin + winning an Oscar =
