Others that were in the running and why I didn't choose them:
Jackie Gleason in The Hustler (1961): I haven't seen the movie for a while and it doesn't imprint on me as much as it could.
Marlon Wayans in Requiem for a Dream (2000): His part just isn't as vital to the film as those above.
Bill Murray in Lost in Translation (2003): Honestly, I just don't care for the movie all that much.
Monique in Precious (2009): Same as Murray, as good as this performance was, I just didn't like the movie as much as most people.
