As the trophies are being handed out at this weekend’s Academy Awards, can we take a short moment to consider the category Oscar has never deigned to recognize? Sure, Daniel Day-Lewis is monumental in There Will Be Blood. Yeah, Cate Blanchett makes an awesome Bob Dylan. But what about the great actors who make the most out of one-, two-, and three-scene roles? What about the scene-stealers, the actors who sweep a movie up in five minutes and walk off with it in their back pockets? Who will stick up for the little guys?
Vulture, that’s who! We’re proud to present the First Annual Vulture Award for Best Performance in a Bit Part.
And the nominees are…
Daniel Brühl, The Bourne Ultimatum
