When Sam Rockwell won the Academy Award for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ in 2017, he underlined his supporting actor legacy. Known mostly for powerful and subtle supportive character roles in a career spanning more than three decades.
