    Actors that had small roles yet were scene stealers and maybe even deserved Oscar noms or wins? They could have been there for one scene or popped in and out or all throughout the movie but wasn’t one of the leads. My picks are: Beatrice Straight (Network), Toni Collette (The Hours), Viola Davis (Doubt), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina), Maria Dizzia (Christine), Gloria Stuart (Titanic), Greta Gerwig (Jackie)

    What are your picks? What do you think of my picks?

    Heather Morris in Glee. She stole the show so much that she eventually became one of the series leads.

    Edit: Just realised this was a film thread.

    Jennifer Garner in Juno.

    In what world did Greta Gerwig steal Jackie?

    I echo the poster that said Jennifer Garner in Juno.

    I didn’t necessarily mean actors that literally stole the show or scenes, just actors that were great in their small roles. Some actors I listed I thought either stole the scenes they were in or did great with the little that they had to do. In Jackie I definitely think Natalie Portman was the standout throughout but the few times Greta was on screen in it I thought she really good with the little she had to do.
