How about John Savage instead of Christopher Walken in The Deer Hunter. Savage’s performance always stayed with me more. Disagree?April 24, 2020 at 8:45 pm #1203446317

Florence Pugh in Little Women over Laura Dern. Pugh was the best of the nominees though.June 21, 2020 at 8:52 pm #1203545463
This is only at the Globes, but the late and great Gary Beach reprising his Tony winning role in The Producers was definitely more deserving of a nomination than Will Ferrell. While the show didn’t translate well to the big screen, Beach was still an absolute riot and effortlessly lovable.
It’s a shame that the film didn’t work out, cause even if they tried making another film version (which I’m sure they won’t) to do the show justice, nobody is ever gonna be able to top Nathan Lane and Gary Beach’s hysterical performances.June 21, 2020 at 9:15 pm #1203545486

Michael Lerner instead of John Goodman for Barton Fink
Barton Fink should’ve been the double supporting actor nominee for 1991, not Bugsy.
One that’s always mystified me is Jack Kruschen over Fred MacMurray in The Apartment, though it did occur to me MacMurray may have been pushed lead as stars often did back then no matter what. Kruschen was still great so I’m not too fussed.December 25, 2020 at 8:39 am #1203944830
