The Whopper Awards 2006 - Part 3

Today it's the turn of the supporting performers whom without, a production would be nothing.

The Nominees For Best Supporting Actor:
Michael Caine (Children Of Men)
Willem DaFoe (Inside Man)
Robert Downey Jr. (A Scanner Darkly)
Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica)

While Sir Michael Caine should be mentioned as he delivers the best rendition of the old “Pull my finger” gag in Children Of Men, the winner is Michael Hogan who gave the performance of his life in the current season of Battlestar Galactica as Colonel Saul Tigh who looses his eye, his wife and his very dignity after galvanising the resistance movement against the “Toaster”’s occupation of New Caprica before returning to the drunken state he’s grown all too used to. Magnificent work.

The Nominees For Best Supporting Actress:
Valeria Golino (36)
Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III)
Scarlett Johansson (The Prestige)
Pauley Perrette (NCIS)

The winner is Michelle Monaghan a Whopper winner last year who shines again, albeit in a different category. This year in Mission Impossible III, she convinced us that she could do much more than look good by portraying Julia, Ethan Hunt’s feisty fiancĂ©e whom we assume will convince him to leave the spy business for good and pave way for a superior actor for the Mission Impossible franchise :)
