    1990, 2001 and 2015 were among the most mentioned for the worst lineup for best lead actor.

    What about best supporting actor? Which lineup was the most disappointing? Surely the most recent one is not a contender for this title. 🙂

    1990, 2001, and 2015 as in the years the films were released? Or as in the years the ceremonies were held for films released in 1989, 2000, and 2014?

    For the early days of Oscar, the year would have to be 1939 where hindsight supports recognition of the enduring work of Leslie Howard as Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind and the quartet of gifted and beloved actors from The Wizard of Oz: Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion, Ray Bolger as the Scarecrow, Jack Haley as the Tin Woodsman and Frank Morgan as the Wizard of Oz.

    In later days of Oscar, the year would have to be 1991 when voters snubbed Samuel L. Jackson as the crack addict Gator Purify in Jungle Fever, Brad Pitt as the sexually charged hitchhiker J.D. in Thelma and Louise, Gary Oldman as presumed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK, River Phoenix as the narcoleptic hustler Mike in My Own Private Idaho, and finally Laurence Fishburne as the caring father Jason (Furious) Styles in Boyz N the Hood.

    2014 was a fairly easy win for JK Simmons, due to a lack of any significant competition.

    We go by release dates unless otherwise stated.

    I actually really like the 2014 lineup minus maybe Duvall because I never saw the judge but Hawke and Norton would have been pretty good winners and Ruffalo was very good in Foxcatcher.

    You forgot about Ted Levine in The Silence of the Lambs AND John Goodman for Barton Fink.

    1960, 1985, 1991, 2003, 2005 and 2006 all leave me yawning in Supporting Actor.

    Agree with 2006 especially but that seemed to be an all-around dull year anyway…

    I find 2016’s lineup really lackluster. The best one (Bridges) was a clear co-lead, and Hedges, Patel, and Shannon were all mediocre/bad.

    Ali was decent though.

    When people list years without context, I get confused as to whether they are referring to the year in which those films were released or the year in which the ceremony took place.

    I find it almost criminal that they snubbed Aaron Taylor-Johnson in favor of Michael Shannon for Nocturnal Animals. Sure, Bobby Andes is a more interesting character on paper, and if they decide to do a sequel, prequel, or TV spinoff I can easily see Andes becoming an icon of whatever medium he ends up on. But Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Ray Marcus is lightyears ahead of Michael Shannon in this movie when it comes to acting quality.

    If they nominated Shannon, then they should’ve also nominated Jake Gyllenhaal and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and possibly also Isla Fisher and Ellie Bamber. All four of them had more charisma than Michael Shannon in this movie.

    I thought the general consensus on GD was that we go by release dates, I haven’t seen it being questioned here for a long time now…

    I think 1994 slightly dropped the ball with ignoring the actors of Four Weddings and a Funeral plus choosing Scofield over Turturro was kinda weird. How funny that 2 years later Golden Globes nominated Scofield for The Crucible but they didn’t for Quiz Show.

    2001 would have been better had Steve Buscemi been nominated for Ghost World (a film I liked a lot less once I read the far superior and three dimensional graphic novel).
