    Vulture Magazine just published a piece about the best working character actors. They disqualified if they meet one of the following criteria.

    <u>The Jenkins Rule</u>: If a performer has been nominated for an Oscar, that performer is ineligible.

    <u>The Dowd-Martindale Rule</u>: If a performer has won a lead or supporting-actor Emmy, that performer is ineligible. (Winners of an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor are permitted.)

    <u>The Hahn Rule</u>: If a performer currently works primarily as a lead, that performer is ineligible.

    This is actually a decent list for once lol. I like the Wong, Abbass and Coolidge mentions.

    I assume Tracey Ullman and Fiona Shaw were ineligible?

    Michael Stuhlbarg should have two Oscar nominations by now. For A Serious Man and Call Me By Your Name. 

    A damm shame.

    Someone who I personally would have added is David Tennant (who has the most incredible range and is underrated af) . Although I assume he is ineligible per the Hahn rule.

    Jennifer Coolidge

    Beth Grant: loved her in Donnie Darko.

    Lorraine Toussaint: love her as the best villain in “Orange Is The New Black”

    • Hiam Abbass

    • Walter Goggins
    • John Carol Lynch
    • Tzi Ma
    • Denis O’Hare
    • Lois Smith
    • Michael Stuhlbarg

    Favorites. I thought Denis would be discounted since he’s gotten awards recognition for AHS before.

    Also… I love Camryn Manheim.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Pretty good list. I wonder why actors like:
    Kaitlyn Dever
    Jena Malone
    Julianne Nicholson
    Jesse Plemons
    Jovan Adepo
    Carrie Coon
    Freya Mavor
    Jean Smart
    Helena Howard
    Miranda July
    Hannah Murray

    wouldn’t be on here. They haven’t won any major prizes and are almost always or usually supporting actors, shouldn’t they be eligible?

    I do actually. She’s comedically very gifted even if she has the Rebel Wilson-like shtick that is kind of the same everytime. But even beyond that, she’s really good in tiny roles like in this year’s PYW.

    I love Jean Smart, but she won Supporting Actress – Comedy in 2008 for Samantha Who?
