For me it was all downhill once Drew Barrymore exited the film..
I’ll add Clifton Collins jr for Capote. He is remarkable!
Guess I’ll add Jason Statham from SPY Since, who else would mention him? Lol.
Bill Murray. Zombieland.
Albert Finney. Skyfall.
Many others. I’ll have to ponder it. Love this question.

I watched The Last Picture Show for the first time the other day and I’d say Ben Johnson fits this description. He reminds me of Mahershala Ali in Moonlight. A heartwarming mentor whose not in the film for long, but he makes a great impression on both the main character and the audience, and you leave the film wishing he was around for longer, and you knew more about him.
His win is pretty impressive I’ve when you remember that his co-star Jeff Bridges was also nominated, and had a much bigger role. I like it when a supporting actor gets recognized even when there’s another supporting player from the film who had more to do. It’s a sign of voters thinking about quality, not quantity.
Another example from that film of a great performance in a small role is Ellen Burstyn. Like Johnson, she’s not around for super long, but you find yourself drawn to her, and while you learn a bit of her backstory, you wish you learned more.April 6, 2020 at 1:25 pm #1203413039

Betty Gabriel in Get Out. Her no, no, no scene was perfect.
I was fighting so hard for her to get that BSA nod but everyone on here was calling me crazy. Every time she was on screen, it was all about her. I was hoping she would have pulled a Beatrice Straight.April 8, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1203416433

I wished she had gotten a bigger screentime. She was definitely a stand out in that movie.April 9, 2020 at 4:19 pm #1203418299
