These are the Best Supporting Actor nominees for 1999. Feel free to vote for your pick.April 14, 2016 at 7:32 am #1201674204
Wasn’t a fan of this line-up. Duncan and Osment are well-cast but awfully one-note, Law is just kind of there and I’m not a fan at all of Cruise’s hammy work in “Magnolia.” Ultimately, I’m sympathetic to the Caine win, even if it’s not really among his best work.
Christopher Plummer should’ve been here and won for “The Insider.”April 14, 2016 at 8:20 am #1201674211
This was a phenomenal year for Supporting Actors but the line up did not represent that. Chris Cooper should have been here for American Beauty, Christopher Plummer for The Insider, Chris Klein for Election, Michael Clarke Duncan for The Green Mile, and John Malkovich for Being John Malkovich. So out of the group above I obviously went with DuncanApril 14, 2016 at 9:56 am #1201674228
I agree that this is a weird line-up. Law would have been my vote of the nominees, but even in his own film I prefer Phillip Seymore Hoffman. I’ll also add Stephen Rea and Peter Sarsgaard to the list of actors I would have preferred be nominated.April 14, 2016 at 10:24 am #1201674233This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 14, 2016 at 2:24 pm #1201674267
Jude Law was on fire but I have got to hand this one to Cruise. By far his fiercest performance.April 14, 2016 at 7:21 pm #1201674322
1. Brad Pitt- Fight Club
2. Wes Bentley- American Beauty
3. Philip Seymour Hoffman- Magnolia
4. Michael Clarke Duncan- The Green Mile
5. Jude Law- The Talented Mr. RipleyApril 15, 2016 at 8:24 am #1201746461
1. Brad Pitt- Fight Club
I would have nominated him in lead (though I understand the case for supporting), but I agree, it is a bold, iconic performance that in a dream world would have been handsomely recognized but in the real world is exactly the kind of a role the Academy never rewards.April 15, 2016 at 10:05 am #1201746475
I prefer Phillip Seymore Hoffman.
I second that. Coming off of a haunting performance in a minor role in Boogie Nights the previous year, PSH had an amazing year in 1999 with stand out performances in Magnolia, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Flawless. A brilliant actor.
I would also add his brilliant work in 1998’s “Happiness.”April 16, 2016 at 10:20 am #1201746616
Chris Klein for Election
No.April 16, 2016 at 9:59 pm #1201746744
Chris Klein in Election? I absolutely love the movie, but Klein was nothing special.
Brad Pitt would have been awesome, but we are still years away for the Academy to recognize those kind of unconventional roles.
For me the one that should have won was Chris Cooper in American Beauty. I still don’t get how he was snubbed (I was too young then to know if he even was in the conversation).
But among the nominees … Law for me was nothing, as said before, he was just .. there, Cruise was overperforming, Osment was in the wrong category (I will always think he was absolute lead in Sixth Sense), so it was between Duncan and Caine. I prefer Duncan since his role was truly remarkable, lovable and is, unlike Caine’s one, now iconic.April 17, 2016 at 7:53 am #1201746796

Chris Klein in Election? I absolutely love the movie, but Klein was nothing special
