    Since Supporting has been taken over to such an extent that mostly secondary leads win nowadays….what really small screen time roles stood out to you this year?

    I’d say:

    Jane Curtin, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
    Sam Elliott and Andrew Dice Clay, A Star is Born
    Christian Slater, The Wife
    and don’t know his name but the little boy in Beautiful Boy who plays Chalemet’s brother. The scene where his eight dollars are missing is the most memorable moment in that film for me.

    Joe Alwyn – The Favourite

    Gemma Chan – Mary, Queen of Scots

    Nicholas Hoult – The Favourite

    Jennifer Jason Leigh – Annihilation (wasn’t really that much of a small screen time, but she was the definition of supporting)

    Margot Robbie – Mary, Queen of Scots (I hate how Elizabeth was diminished to such a small role especially with the promotion)

    James Smith – The Favourite

    Tessa Thompson – Annihilation (same as Leigh)

    Henry deserved to be an Oscar nominee for his work in this film. Hands down he would have been my number 1 choice for supporting actor.

    Anyone have the link to that page where it ranks all performances by screen percentage for each past winner in the acting categories?

    I can’t find it.

    Brian Tyree Henry, If Beale Street Could Talk
    Ashlie Atkinson, Blackkklansman
    Clark Moore, Love, Simon
    Daniel Kaluuya, Widows
    Armie Hammer, Sorry to Bother You

    It’s hard to judge where the line between small and really small is drawn though. For instance, the above-mentioned Margot Robbie was very prominent in MQOS so I would never call her role really small. Armie Hammer is a borderline case as well.

    For me it was smaller in screen time than what I expected to the point where I never knew if she was really ever going to show up again, except for that confrontation scene (obviously not historically speaking though).

    True, but she was still clearly the most prominent supporting player in the movie – some would even say co-lead. So not really small by any stretch if you ask me 😀

    Daniel Kaluuya. I am not kidding, he gave me nightmares.

    Also, Nicole Kidman in “Boy Erased,” who has that one standout moment.

    I’m too lazy to look up the names of these actresses, but these two low-screentime performances stood out to me:

    1)The religious fanatic woman who got slapped by her husband in If Beale Street Could Talk

    2)The “Araminta” character in Crazy Rich Asians.

    If Beale Street Could Talk really has so many of these performances. You could add Colman Domingo and Emily Rios to the list. Obviously King too if you consider her a really small role. That movie really should have won sag ensemble.

    Completely agree with Jane Curtin who was fantastic in Can You Ever Forgive Me? I’d also like to mention Dolly Wells who was sublime as Anna in that film.

    Another great small performance in a wildly underrated film was Rachel Bay Jones in Ben is Back. Her scene opposite Julia Roberts was one of the best acted scenes of the year.
