Think that Cazale was AMAZING in two-first Godfathers, maybe better than Pacino, Caan or Duvall...
Good list

well done!!that was a very good list!!

Some fantastic choices. Glad to see John Cazale in two very good roles represented here.

WOW, freaking impressive list. Kudos to you!

Also, how about William Hurt in Mr. Brooks in addition to A History Of Violence?
Posted: 4 years, 1 month ago at Oct 15 19:03
For Jackie Earl Haley I would his role in Watchmen. Still can't get over him not being nominated for that performance.

Think you should add Casey Affleck in The Assassination of Jesse James as well. :)

Really nice list.

I love how Kevin Spacey stole the show in Se7en and it was only there for 15 minutes.
Posted: 3 years, 12 months ago at Nov 26 2:41
i only scrolled half the list before realizing most of these aren't supporting performances but lead performances. Maybe I'm wrong but if if they are the main gendered performance who are they supporting? Example...Philip Seymour Hoffman in doubt
Posted: 3 years, 12 months ago at Nov 26 3:28
all of them are supporting perfomances
seymour hoffman in doubt is supporting
meryl streep is the main
thanks for your suggestion
Posted: 3 years, 12 months ago at Nov 26 17:05
very nice list...i'd add alec baldwin in glengary glenross, and r. lee ermey from full metal jacket...
Posted: 3 years, 10 months ago at Jan 8 7:23
Great List... Maybe Diane Keaton From Annie Hall?
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at May 24 7:55
Amy Adams in The Fighter .

Some nice choices here, my friend. Glad to see Ben Foster for 3:10 to Yuma (though I'd personally add his role in 30 Days of Night).

Isn't Marge Gunderson the lead role in Fargo though? Frances McDormand won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
