Best of 2006: Best Supporting Actress

Dig in, StinkyLulu, and all the rest of you, too. I've already gabbed so much about three of these five women that there's less surprise in this announcement, but I hope you'll still find something to say in response. Next up: Best Director and Best Foreign-Language Film.

Meanwhile, Goatdog makes a great case for Amy Smart in Crank as his own pick for this year's Best Supporting Actress. If you've seen the film, you'll know exactly what it means, even if none of us would have phrased it this well; if you haven't seen the film... well, why haven't you?

Wow. Watson, Baldwin and Morse are all on my (forthcoming) list too. I figured no one else would be citing them. Bravo.

Admit it, J.J.: You're just happy that the Prada women didn't make the cut. ;)

This is such a great party! I only wish I had the sodding time to stick mine up properly. Can you bear to wait until after Berlin? In this category I've got two of yours, one of your runners-up, one I've blogged about, and one wild card hardly anyone will have seen. Brydon just missed the cut for supporting actor last year. I'm so pleased Morse is getting this amount of love -- not sure he's ever been better.

YES! So glad to see Fiona Shaw showing up places. So too for Seema Biswas. That scene at the train station was such a great ending. I know it's sorta stolen from a whole lot of other movies, but I don't care.

Watson was one of my favourite things about The Proposition - a movie I didn't actually care for that much.

@KC: I didn't care for The Proposition, either. Seemed too portentous and heavy, and I never much cared about the whole outlaw plot with Guy Pearce and the other guy and the tiresome Danny Huston. But, Ray Winstone and Emily Watson were superb in it, which has kept the film alive in my mind.

Yes, Winstone too. He was the standout of the movie. And yes, I'm happy you left Blunt off. I'm assuming you omitted Meryl too...

Agreed on The Proposition. Winstone and Watson were honourable mentions in my 2005 awards (it was a 2005 release here).

The Proposition gets better when you watch it again. Honest. I think my original grade from Toronto 05 was a C, but now I really quite like it...
