Best Supporting Actor

With the Academy Awards this week, I thought I’d have the audacity to tell you who should win if they gave acting awards for all the movies (well, all the movies I’ve seen and can remember) from 1980 to 2010.  This time, the Best Supporting Actor (which, by the way, is the most difficult to choose):

Honorable Mention:  Ed Harris in Apollo 13, Chris Cooper in American Beauty, Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda, Tom Cruise in Magnolia, Cuba Gooding Jr. in Jerry Maguire, Edward Norton in Primal Fear, Kevin Spacey in The Usual Suspects

Nominated: Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, Denzel Washington in Glory

The Winner:  Christian Bale in The Fighter
