Haing Ngor was a lead in The Killing Fields

Just watched it for the first time. He's like the star of it.

Who should have won instead? John Malkovitch is surprisingly cute in the film and lost for Places in the Heart to Ngor.

Other nominees: Adolph Caesar, Pat Morrita, Ralph Richardson.

Adolph Caesar was really good

Pat Morita? Jesus.

Was Haing hung?

He deserved to win. Calm down.

The Killing Fields is a damn good movie about the horrors of war. Ngor and Sam Waterston make the movie.

Ironic - he could escape death in the killing fields, but couldn't escape murder in the United States.

Ngor actually has more screen time than Waterston!

My favorite male supporting turn that year was given by Jeffrey Jones as Emperor Joseph II in Amadeus. He enacted the benevolent yet obtuse Teuton aristocratic middlebrow to perfection.
