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.
A perfect example of the Academy's lack of vision and appreciation of the craft.Kilmer was absolutely superb
Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holiday in Tombstone is the classic. It was so good you felt like you had tuberculosis and were fighting through it to be there for friend Wyatt Earp. His icy demeanor looked death in the eye, drew a pistol and fired straight thru death's heart, then stood over death and lamented that the encounter was "more than death could bare". Wow!
Val Kilmer's role as Doc Holiday will remain as one of the best supporting actor performances of all time, for me. I was crushed when was not even nominated. He got my Oscar, that year. He's our huckleberry.
