alan arkin

I notice that alan arkin is pulling ahead.  jeez, I still think of him in "the defection of simas kudirka."  His best work?  No, but is that what we're voting on here?...


Arkin did kind of steal Miss Sunshine though. Or, in stand up comedy terms, he "killed." Not his best work no (heck, I would've voted for him for The In Laws) but he was still pretty memorable. Now if the little girl from that film wins, bless her heart, then I may be more shocked.

Tucci + Damon + Iwo

Stanley Tucci in Devil Wears Prada was also excellent in a supporting role. And Matt Damon in Good Shepard, although I guess that should be lead actor.   And many members of the cast of Iwo Jima could have rec'd consideration (as well as Adam Beach in Flags of Our Fathers), but oh well.
