Best Supporting Performance (Male), 2007

Javier Bardem, No Country for Old Men (126 points/17 votes)

“Descriptive adjectives have flowed like booze when describing this year's most deserved Best Supporting Performance by an Actor: unforgettable, chilling, intense, sociopathic, evil, systematic, terrifying, frightening, magnetic, patient, fearsome, virtuoso, transcendent, flawless… you get the idea. I couldn't think of any fresher, more accurate adjectives myself, so I thought, what better way to honor the brilliant character portrayal of Anton Chigurh by taking an irreverent cue from our 2008 Academy Awards host, Jon Stewart, and kick it with a parody song for the incredible Javier Bardem. A classic song for a classic performance. Feel free to sing along!”

(sung to the tune of "Strangers in the Night")

“Jav-i-er Bar-demmmm
exchanges glances
Jav-i-er Bar-demmmm
coin flips for chances
who'd have ever thought
His hair could look like thattttttt?

Something in his eyes
Is so hynoptic
something in his mind
Is so psychotic
Something in his heart
tells him he must kill youuuuuuuuuuuu

Jav-i-er Bar-demmmm
As Anton Chigurh
He is Jav-i-er Bar-demmmmmm
Until that moment
When he meets the right "friend-o"
little do they know
Death is just a flip a-way
A cattle prodding blip a-way, and

Thanks to Coens' knack
Bardem's been winnin'
Best Supporting Act
for dopest villain

It's been muy bien
For Jav-i-er Bar-demmmmm” ~ Jenny Sekwa

No way, I was the only vote for Irfan Khan in "The Namesake"? He was by leaps and bounds the best thing about it, and it was pretty good already!


Jason, I think it's that Supporting Actor was maybe the best category of the entire year... I had at least nine choices that I was trying to choose between, only two of which (Bardem, Holbrook) were thoroughly secure.
