2006 Diva Cup Awards: Best Supporting Actor

And the nominees are...

Steve Carell, Little Miss Sunshine
Carell hardly seems to be the first person you would cast as the gay, suicidal Uncle Frank, but he does an amazing job balancing the pathos with the comedy.
Key Scene: Running Into His Ex-Lover While Buying Porn
Eddie Murphy, Dreamgirls
When we are first introduced to him, we understand why Murphy was cast, but along the way he shows us things we've never seen before.
Key Scene: "Fake Your Way to the Top"

Jack Nicholson, The Departed

Nicholson, as always, delivers a deliciously maniacal performance that teeters on over-the-top but somehow manages to stay grounded in reality.

Key Scene: "Enjoy your clams, cocksucker"

Michael Sheen, The Queen

Sheen does an amazing job keeping up with Dame Helen and believably captures Tony Blair's transformation from not liking the Queen to respecting her.

Key Scene: Meeting the Queen

Mark Wahlberg, The Departed

Superior scene stealing in a true supporting role.

Key Scene: Morning Briefing With Alec Baldwin

If Only There Were Six: Channing Tatum, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

Rounding Out the Top 10: PJ DeBoy, Shortbus...Christopher Plummer, Inside Man...Stanley Tucci, The Devil Wears Prada...Jackie Earle Haley, Little Children

Jack Nicholson,
The Departed
Steve Carell,
Little Miss Sunshine
Eddie Murphy, Dreamgirls
