    The options are my personal favorites, I have included “Other” if you disagree.

    Shout-outs:

    Victor Buono – What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
    Willem Dafoe – Shadow of the Vampire
    Robert Duvall – Apocalypse Now
    Robert Forster – Jackie Brown
    Jackie Earle Haley – Little Children
    George Segal – Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
    Billy Bob Thornton – A Simple Plan

    My top 3 choices are Jackson, Fiennes and Davidson, with Jackson having a slight advantage. I wouldn’t fault anyone for choosing any of these three.

    Some amazing performances here but Ralph Fiennes losing to Tommy Lee Jones still remains one of the worst calls in the history of the Academy Awards.

    I said Ralph Fiennes. I haven’t even seen The Fugitive, but I can’t imagine Tommy Lee Jones’ performance being superior to Fiennes’.
