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?
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.February 13, 2019 at 8:21 pm #1202775366
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)February 13, 2019 at 8:39 pm #1202775373
Jesse Plemons- Game Night
Brian Tyree Henry- If Beale Street Could Talk
Molly Shannon- Private Life
Nicholas Hoult- The Favourite
Rupert Friend- The Death of Stalin
Andrea Riseborough- The Death of Stalin
Dale Dickey- Leave No Trace
Sam Elliott- A Star is Born
Gemma Chan- Crazy Rich Asians
Maura Tierney- Beautiful BoyFebruary 13, 2019 at 8:43 pm #1202775374
The only correct answer is Brian Tyree Henry. If Beale Street Could Talk.February 13, 2019 at 9:52 pm #1202775459
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.February 13, 2019 at 9:55 pm #1202775461
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.February 13, 2019 at 10:09 pm #1202775469

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).February 14, 2019 at 5:08 am #1202775769

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 😀February 14, 2019 at 10:35 am #1202776077
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.

Aunjanue Ellis – If Beale Street Could Talk (the way she says “that chiiiiild” give me chills”)
Brian Tyree Henry – If Beale Street Could TalkFebruary 14, 2019 at 11:10 am #1202776138
Teyonah Parris was great in If Beale Street Could TalkFebruary 14, 2019 at 2:07 pm #1202776329
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.February 14, 2019 at 3:22 pm #1202776384
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.
