Best character actor

Timothy Carey or Thelma Ritter. Or you suck. Choose or face the consequences. And discuss.

I vote Thelma Ritter for one flick, the Sam Fuller one.

Thelma by a wide margin. She was great in her very first (uncredited) appearance in Miracle of 34th Street and could be counted on to give a great performance every single time. And six Oscar nominations ain’t chopped liver, even though the Academy never gave her a win.
