Best Supporting Actor Oscar 1994?

Who do you guys think was the most deserving winner out of those nominated. Landau and Jackson were the stand outs but I think they got it right picking Landau, its probably one of my favorite wins ever and such an inspired pick. I might be doing more of these best supporting actor oscar threads running through random years

Fifteen years later, Jackson's performance is the one that stands out as making the strongest impression, so fifteen years later, I'll say Jackson should have won.

Good or bad....a Jackson always gets an impression.

For me it's Sinise or Jackson...but...Jackson had the better job, IMO.

Jackson. Very Memorable. I believe it so wellwhen he said he was going to leave Marsalis and "walk the earth".

I loved Jackson in PF... but Landau locked this up easily.

Sinise? Really?

I hated Forrest Gump, but thought Sinise was the best thing about it lol. Good performance just way behind Jackson and Landau

I loved Jackson but Landau as Lugosi was amazing (Pull the strings!!!!).
To me the others don't even come close.
Not even Sinise.

Re: Best Supporting Actor Oscar 1994?

I know 'Forrest Gump' has a great deal of haters, and I understand to a degree, even though I still do like the film, BUT saying Sinise didn't deserve a nomination compared to who was nominated isn't quite fair.

He did quite a good job. Scofield is the least memorable to me, and I did see 'Quiz Show', it just didn't leave all that great of an impression. I think some people in 1994 were 'prisoners of the moment' with 'Quiz Show'.

Has to be Jackson out of who was actually nominated.

I might still go with Jackson over others I think gave a great performance like- Freeman in Shawshank, one of the actors out of Chungking Express, or Shaq in Blue Chips...

Pulp Fiction is my favorite film of all time, but Landau's performance in Ed Wood is simply amazing.

The Oscars are culturally biased.

Very happy that Landau won but would have like it to have gone to Samuel L.

"Quiz Show" was slightly better than Pulp Fiction, a better film that Shawshank and worlds ahead of Forrest Gump by far. Gump doesn't even belong anywhere near "Best Picture". Total ego masturbation for self-absorbed loser Baby Boomers (redundant). Anyway, to say that people who lauded "Quiz Show" were "prisoners of the moment" is unearthly ignorant. But to each their own.

I think Sam Jackson had better scenes but Martin Landau had a better performance. I still crack up just thinking about the scene where Bela is told he was a great sidekick to Boris Karloff. "Karloff? Sidekick?Fuck You! Karloff did not deserve to smell my shit. That limey cock sucker can rot in he'll for all I care."

Samuel pretty much played his usual Samuel L. Jackson role so I would give it to Landau.

Didn't Martin Landau already win this? Why the hell are we still being asked to vote on it?

I'm still pissed that Landau didn't thank Bela Lugosi in his acceptance speech.

I know, but that's no excuse. He should have thanked Bela first, before going on and on about his family, his acting teachers, etc.
