"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Tommy Lee Jones in JFKLet's discuss Oscar hiearchies,again.This one is ultra specific but we're doing it for balance sincewe did the supporting actresses last week.Who are Oscar's 10 favorite supporting actors of all time?We'll work the ranking like so: Supporting nominations count most,with wins acting like half a nomination to help determine rank.The tiebreaker is the spread of time of nominations which can denote either long term fandom on the Academy's part or shortlived enthusiasms.

In contrast to supporting actress where the leaders were clear and the nomination counts higher but among fewer people,very narrow statistics separated all of the runners up from the top ten.Though if you must know,the unlucky #11 was Tommy Lee Jones,who would have ranked 5th on the top ten had he won the Oscar forLincolnAS HE SHOULD HAVE.But we'll discuss Tommy and the 7 other working actors who almost made the list after the top ten under "who's next?".But for now a shout out to the departed.They left behind great performances and almost made this list:

  • Gig Young (1951,1958,1969*)
  • Martin Landau (1988,1989,1994*)
  • Charles Coburn (1941,1943*,1946)
  • Melvyn Douglas (1963*,1979*)
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman (2007,2008,2012)
  • Charles Bickford (1943,1947,1948)
  • Anthony Quinn (1952*,1956*)

okay on to the top ten list...
