best bit performances 2010The Oscars pretty much have the best performances of the year on lock. And while Best Supporting Actor/Actress nominations can come from brief performances -- see Alan Arkin's winning turn in 2006's 'Little Miss Sunshine' -- we at PopEater think there are some true heroes being glossed over.

Those screen sensations are the bit actors. Their parts range from a few minutes to mere seconds, but the performances often warrant a reward in their own right. (Yes, we're talking about you, creepy old 'Shutter Island' woman.)

Without further ado, we present the Bitties, honoring the best bit parts of Oscars season.
