1993 Oscar - Best Supporting Actor for Val Kilmer for Tombstone

In 1993 an injustice was done. Val Kilmer was overlooked by the Academy for his role as Doc Holliday in Tombstone.Val didn't even receive a nomination.


The nominees for Best Supporting Actor in 1993 were: Gene Hackman, Jaye Davidson, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, and David Paynor. Gene Hackman won for his role in Unforgiven. On this list, there are some great actors, most notably Jack Nicholson for A Few Good Men. However the rest are forgettable.

Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holliday is beyond iconic, Tombstone was an OK Movie to start with but Val's performance turned the film into a classic. One of the most quotable films of all time, all of which come from Kilmer. It is his singular presence that elevated the film and the other actors, without him I believe the film fails.

If you feel that Val Kilmer was screwed out of an Oscar sign this petition. By signing this petition you are saying that you want the Academy to recognize Val's performance publicly in the 2013 Academy awards. This will mark the 20th anniversary of Tombstone. This will right the wrong that was done 20 years ago. Once the petition time frame is over it will be sent to the powers that be at the Academy Awards.

  • Jason Nichols The reason I don't watch the Oscar shows yearly is because it is a farce. How could they NOT nominate Val Kilmer for this performance? It was iconic.

  • Rhonda M. Johnson All I have to say,is everytime I watch tombstone, I watch to see Doc Holiday. He makes the movie worth watching. One of my favorite part's (I'll be your Huck a berry). And the end.when he get Johnny Ringo. He should have won the best actor. Love that movie:):)
