For 1999, I would have picked Noah Fleiss in Joe the King or William Eadie in Ratcatcher. I think Lucas Black also does a great job in Crazy in Alabama, even if it's not a brilliant film.

HJO would come fourth for his performance in The Sixth Sense. It's a fine performance, but nowhere near as impressive as everyone says it is. There are hundreds of performances that impressed me more.

Shall we move on to 1998?

I'm going to go with Mason Gamble, for his supporting role in Rushmore. One of my favourite performances ever.

I'm with Tom on 1999. I would've taken Haley over Cameron Van Hoy (Pups) and Samuel Haus (Tsatsiki) with a special supporting nod to Jeremy Blackman in Magnolia.

I can't go with Mason Gamble for 1998 mainly because his role in Rushmore wasn't large enough. It was absolutely memorable though and his best role as a boy.
My 1998 pick would be Miko Hughes for Mercury Rising over Kieran Culkin (The Mighty), Clément van den Bergh (Class Trip) and the amazing Joseph Cross (Wide Awake).

--------------------------------------------------------

This leaves me with 1997. Reviewing my list, I think I need to see more 1997 movies. I would pick Robert Ri'chard for In His Father's Shoes over Georges Du Fresne with William Snape grabbing the memorable supporting role honors.

Zab, have you seen The Butcher Boy? The film may not be your cup of tea, but it's an absolutely amazing performance by Eamonn Owens. Really amazing acting, I think. That would've been my pick for 1997.

I have and your summation of my taste regarding that film is dead on.
I concede the film's quality but I personally didn't care for it. I knew someone else would bring up Eamonn Owens for 1997.

I'm with you. Great choice!

Nothing against Haley's performance, he was excellent and played the role to perfection, however, Mohsen Ramezani in 'The Colour of Paradise' was unforgettable in an equally unforgettable film.

I agree with Josephk on 1997:

It's a lay down mizzare: Eamonn Owens in 'The Butcher Boy' would probably make it into my all time top ten performances by a boy actor.

1995 Joseph Mazzello 'The Cure'

Joseph gave a number of noteworthy performances over the years. So in a relatively light year (I stand to be corrected) I'd give him the nod for his very believable and moving performance in this film.

Brad Renfro in the same film was also very good, and in light of his early demise this film takes on an extra dimension.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Agree with Tom on Lucas Black in 'Sling Blade' for 1996.

I agree with you! (except the spelling should be Stahl)

But I was also thinking of
