What movie was carried by the supporting actor? The movie would have sucked w/o him.
The one that comes to mind for me is “Smokey and the Bandit”. Jackie Gleason carried that movie, unless he is not considered a supporting role, since he is the Smokey.

I think it’s more of a general rule than not that a movie is only as good as its supporting cast.

That’s why I think the division between Oscar acting categories are kind of arbitrary and meaningless.

Brad Pitt is totally playing a supporting role in Once Upon a Time... But he’s always playing the best role.

As much as I love this movie and love SLJ, he didn’t carry the movie. It was carried by all the actors equally.

Disagree. Reynolds and Field had great chemistry. Gleason did not carry them. He simply made the movie better.

I didn’t mean to say he carried them because he didn’t have scenes with them (other than the brief one in the diner). He carried the movie. His scenes were 100x better than theirs.

"Donnie Brasco" would not have been the same without Al Pacino playing Lefty Ruggerio.

He should have won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in that film.

Also, how about "Dog Day Afternoon" with John Cazale playing Sal, the hapless accomplice in crime with Al Pacino.
