    Anyone who hasn't seen The Pawnbroker should sit this one out. Devastating performance by Steiger, an all-timer for sure!

    Sharif but Poitier is great too, never cared for Steiger there.

    "And there on top of his head were faces like she had seen only in a dream, almost too beautiful to be recognized as people at all:
    the most beautiful woman and the most beautiful man in the world, she the female version of him, and he the male version of her
    "

    I love Poitier so much, but he really doesn't do much in A Patch of Blue this man did so much better work (including The Slender Thread this very year), and this is one of the few times I'm fine with him being snubbed, especially since the film isn't particularly good, and Shelley Winters gives one of the worst Supporting Actress winning performances ever, beaten only by Estelle Parsons two years later.

    This should have been Steiger's time to win the Oscar. His 1967 win (for a supporting role) clearly a make-up win for losing here. Absolutely brilliant work that breaks my heart every time I see it.

    Absolutely repulsive nomination, and I normally love Olivier.

    Seriously. I can never resist watching that Othello trainwreck when people post those videos. I maintain the acting itself is even more depraved than the blackface. Even if he were not in black face and if he were playing a white character, the acting would be crimes against humanity. THE HAND AND ARM WAVING (AND HEAP SHAKING!?!?) between minute 4:49 and 5:00 is perhaps the vilest 10 seconds of acting in history. Perhaps tied with that monologue in which he crosses eyes for whatever reason. And perhaps tied with Kate Winslet performances, too.

    It's remarkable how good Frank Finley and Maggie Smith were in that film considering that they had to deal with acting opposite that.

    Two really outstanding performances, and HABSY™ solves the issue with truth:

    Best Actor: Rod Steiger, in The Pawnbroker
    Best Supporting Actor: Oskar Werner, in The Ship of Fools

    No one is lead in The Ship of Fools (Signoret wins in supporting as well)



    I love Sharif as Zhivago more than most, however he'd still be far behind these two.
