    When it comes to APOCALYPSE NOW, it was always Dennis Hopper that left a bigger impression on me when compared to the other small supporting performances.

    I love the mentions of the ALIEN cast, particularly Ian Holm.

    Paul Dooley would’ve been a good contender as well.

    For the actual nominees, I’d almost consider just giving it to Duvall as a consolation prize since I’m not super wild about the other nominees but I did also like Forrest and even Henry.

    Frederic Forrest in The Rose is my pick – whatever became of him? After One From the Heart I never really saw him in anything again…

    Paul Dooley and Dennis Quaid in Breaking Away, Melvyn Douglas in The Seduction of Joe Tyanan, Frederic Forrset in Apocalypse Now – but I would still choose Frederic Forrest in The Rose (:

    I rewatched The Rose a couple of weeks ago for the first time since its release and Frederic Forrest’s performance has aged beautifully. Alas the film itself has not, nor surprisingly Midler’s performance which overwhelmed me on back in 1980 but was really nothing special this time around. Still a wouldn’t dream of taking the nomination away from her for a minute. Fully earned. I think he kept working just no in high profile films. He is about 80 now so he is probably retired. It’s always good to see the Academy give a nod to a ‘working actor’ who isn’t a star.

    My rankings:
    1. Robert Duvall, APOCALYPSE NOW
    2. Frederic Forrest, THE ROSE
    3. Melvyn Douglas, BEING THERE
    4. Justin Henry, KRAMER VS. KRAMER
    5. Mickey Rooney, THE BLACK STALLION

    My personal nominees:
    1. Robert Duvall, APOCALYPSE NOW
    2. Paul Dooley, BREAKING AWAY
    3. Ian Holm, ALIEN
    4. Michael Palin, THE LIFE OF BRIAN
    5. Frederic Forrest, THE ROSE

    Any of the supporting cast from “Alien” really could have made it for me. With all that there was for sure no room for Melvyn Douglas, even though he did good work in both of this films that year.
