    I can't believe Finney didn't happen for this, it would have been a genuinely deserving chance to honor his career (and especially over the middling Robbins). Sarsgaard also fantastic. Between those two for me for sure.

    I'm not a fan of Albert Hammey in general, but he should have been nominated for this (and possibly even won - it was a wonderful performance). I think Big Fish deserved much more in general, one of Burton's very best films.

    Seeing Macy in the poll, I'm always shocked when I realize that Bridges barely got any traction for Seabiscuit. He had a pretty substantial role, and the film was a major hit that got a bunch of nominations across the seasons - and he had the overdue factor going for him, so it would've been such an easy win for him had they actually paid attention. Peculiar that Macy happened at GG, Cooper at SAG and Bridges at...the Satellites

    Oof, I count zero great performances (Sarsgaard unseen).

    None of the 5 I've seen did much for me, but Robbins was ok in a difficult role, and I love the film, so him.

    Robbins is one of the worst winners in history. Between Finney and Watanabe it's Watanabe for me.

    Sarsgaard’s the only nomination-worthy here.

    Bridges campaigned in lead. He had no chance to beat Robbins though, it's a much weaker role and laid back performance. One of the least interesting performances in his career, tbh. Thankfully we were spared another Seabiscuit nomination!

    Oh really? I was so sure he went supporting (as evident by the Satellite nomination), but that does make sense.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think he deserved to win for it, I was just saying that based on the success of the film and his narrative for being overdue, it could've happened for him

    Yeah, I think this is why he eventually didn't pan out. The movie wanted to portray him as an adorable old kook when he was actually a narcissistic manipulator. I remember many reviewers, Ebert included, who took issue with that.

    Um, I have to rewatch Shattered Glass 'cause I saw it years ago and I don't remember anything too noteworthy about it, Saarsgard included.

    Only loved Finney and Watanabe.

    1. Watanabe is an easy win for me in a great movie. I know it's common to attack movies for white saviorism and cultural appropriation, but Hollowood made an awesome samurai movie, and it wouldn't have happened without Tom Crooze in the lead. And Watanabe was clearly pretty happy with it...
    2. Sarsgaard is a close second, shame the Academy missed this. Not an Oscar role on paper, but putting such an inherently weird actor in a dull role actually made the character interesting.
    3. Is this the only time Baldwin did Mob enforcer kinda role? Seems so obvious for him. On the one hand, the character is genuinely brutal, giving him real edge. While he also genuinely cares about Macy, essentially giving his life for him in the end, thus giving the audience a reason to care about him. Also, his portrayal of a fading way of life as Vegas gets sanitized is an easy one for us to root for. A lesser actor would have either softened the character OR hated the character. But the more interesting way is in between. Maybe I like this one more than I thought...
    4. Robbins, great actor, great movie, great role. Haven't seen it in 20 years, maybe I should view it again... Still, these four deserved their spots!
    5. Macy... cute cameo, but insubstantial next to the others
    NS Finney, but I hear he's great.

    As for other contenders, I'm a big Djimon Hounsou fan, but never saw this movie. del Toro was excellent, but it's hardly the movie that comes to mind when I think of him. Bill Nighy got his breakout role.. in a movie I will likely never see. With 20 years retrospect, some people were trying to make Sean Astin or Andy Serkis happen for LOTR... yeah, maybe one of them should have gotten in...
