Alternate Academy Awards

Love the site. I agree with your choices for supporting actors for Alternate Academy Awards. Particularly Bill Sage. His role in Mysterious Skin was as creepy as he was compelling. It was as if the ghost of "coach" permeated the entire film. He is as seriously hot as he is talented. I recommend seeing Evenhand if you haven't done so already. Bill Sage is accomplished with a large body of work. Art over commerce of course, but I would love to see him in something really big and win some serious recognition for it.
