    Maggie Smith in A Room with a View. Hilariously uptight and condescending.

    Totally agree with this one!

    Someone brought up Maggie Smith - she's brilliant in everything, but my particular favourite is Gosford Park. She plays the role to perfection, combining the subtleties of a woman in an awkward position with delicious relish for the comedic aspects of the role. Robert Altman tends to let his characters improvise to a degree, so one does wonder how much was a great script and how much was her own turn - but either way, it was delivered with excellence throughout every line, gesture and look.

    Kevin Kline in A Fish Called Wanda - his character Otto, the dim-witted, hair-trigger tempered, ex-CIA assassin, stole every scene he was in, and he earned an Oscar for it.

    Ditto for Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny.

    Definitely agree with this. I would go as far as to say the entire cast with the exception of Kelsey Grammer. I don't think that any other group of folks would have been able to do as well.....

    Also have to add Sean Hayes on Will and Grace. He, along with Megan Mullally were the reason I watched.

    Jean Simmons in a somewhat obscure classic comedy, The Grass Is Greener. When you can steal a movie from Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, and Robert Mitchum, you're GOOD.

    Arthur Darvill in Doctor Who(More season 5 than 6. But he still feels more supporting than co-lead.)

    I was raised on a pretty steady diet of old movies with an emphasis on John Wayne movies. Which is why so many of the movies are his. Those are just the movies and shows I remember off the top of my head. If I actually put more effort into it I would probably get more. Especially from the Sci-Fi/Fantasy shows that I watch.

    I'll add Patricia Neal in Hud. Melvyn Douglas also.
    I couldn't remember Mildred Natwick's name earlier. I'll add her for Barefoot in the Park.

    The first thing that came to mind was Alan Rickman in An Awfully Big Adventure. Unforgettable role and acting

    Wow I didn't know he got an Oscar for that but he cracked me up like no one. Dov'è il Vaticano?

    Jared Leto was awesome in Requiem for a Dream. The entire cast was great.

    Don Cheadle in Devil in a Blue Dress. Batshit crazy and perfect at it.

    Judith Anderson as Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca. Creepy.

    Someone mentioned Thelma Ritter. She was great in Rear Window too.

    I've been reading and writing: My netflix list is growing and now I wish there was an awards show just to celebrate these folks.

    Note to Allen: I am embarrassed to say that "The Wire" is one of my all time favorite tv series but I don't know who Felicia Pearson is (yet.)
