On the Best Supporting Actor Race at the 1956 Oscars

I love Anthony Quinn as an actor and consider his performances in "Viva Zapata", "La Strada", "Requiem for a Heavyweight", and "Zorba the Greek" amongst the very finest. But, I'm sorry, for him to have gotten an Oscar for "Lust for Life", in what was in essence a cameo, when Robert Stack not only excelled in "Written on the Wind" but quite literally stole the show from Rock Hudson and Lauren Bacall was a huge miscarriage of justice, in my opinion.
