From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor is one of the awards given to people working in the motion picture industry by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; the awards are voted on by other people within the industry. As is the customary practice in Wikipedia for listing Oscar results, the winner of the award for that year is listed first. The films below are listed with their production year, so for example the Oscar awarded in 2000 went to the Best Supporting Actor in 1999.
This award was originally a plaque.
From 1943 winners received statuettes like everybody else.
