    I may make my list later, but I disagree with some choices you made.
    1. I like to believe that Dafoe’s nomination had enough support to, at least, be over Viggo Mortensen.
    2.Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl was top three, or maybe a long distant runner-up.
    3.Clint Eastwood was NOT fifth on his category. He was in the Best Picture winner.
    4. Even though Hanks already had two oscars, I’m pretty sure that SPR eas enough to give him some passion votes. I think Nolte was fifth that year.
    5. John C. Reilly had a HUGE year when he was nominated. He was in three out of five Best Picture nominees, including the winner. There is no way there wasn’t enough votes that recognized his work.
    6. Pretty sure Geoffrey Rush wasn’t fifth either.

    If you’re speaking of Castaway the big problem there was many voters hated the film.

    Btw great work OP. The reason why I haven’t added my 2 cents is because of all the work this entails, and rudimentary typing skills.

    There’s no way Dafoe had more support than Viggo. Like you said about Clint, Viggo was in a Best Picture winner.

    And Redmayne was definitely dead last. He had just won the year before, and that win wasn’t exactly popular. There’s no chance he was ahead of Fassbender and Damon. Maybe there’s the possibility that he was ahead of Cranston, but the industry’s overwhelming love for him, and Redmayne undeservedly winning the previous year means that Cranston was very, very likely fourth place.

    Dafoe/Viggo was tough for me to pick, but even though Dafoe is easily the better performance, I doubt enough people saw it to vote him over Viggo. See previous comments for Redmayne. Eastwood I think was 5th because people wanting to reward him could easily vote for him in Director, and while I could see arguments being made for Depp or Cheadle, I think they both would have gotten more than him. I doubt Nolte was last – if anyone else, it would be Norton, since that race seemed to be McKellen vs Nolte up until Benigni started running away with things. Reilly was another tough choice, since I honestly could see the case being made for all four other nominees that year as the runner-up (Walken and Newman as veterans, Reilly in 3 Best Pictures like you said, and Harris as overdue on his 4th nomination in 7 years), so I went with Reilly purely since he was the surprise nominee. Rush I put as 5th because he had just won two years prior, and I don’t think he would have gotten more than Harris or Duvall. Maybe Thornton though.

    I made a similar post in the Actress one but I think certain picks fail when they confuse small performances with passion with broadly liked performances without passion. A lot of these picks are one that reasonably cane 5th in nomination voting but likely have a more loyal and passionate base that would rank it number 1. This goes for the indies, critical darlings and foreign language performances imo.

    But also, it’s important to look at Alternatives, because voting is about the favourite. So in the 2018 race I think (not sure) but Willem might’ve beat Viggo because Willem is more
    Of an ALTERNATIVE to the winner than Viggo. The voter who liked Viggo probably also liked Rami and voted there. To determine last place you need to look at which of the non clear runner ups is less of an alternative to the winner. Rami stole more of Viggos fans than Willem’s so those that didn’t like Green Book and Boheminan crap would lean more Willem than Viggo.
    Just my thinking.
