Best Comedic Performance

This week's evening comment diversions have all been devoted to acting performances, and I hate to break that up. So, tonight's last acting-related diversion asks this: What is the best comedic performance by an actor or actress? Bit part, sidekick, or lead? Comedic actors often go unappreciated, but a really solid comedic performance is as hard or harder than effectively playing a dramatic character. And yet, the MTV Movie Awards are the organization that rewards it, and that barely even counts.

So what do you say? For my money, I'd have to go with a recent performance: Robert Downey, Jr. in Tropic Thunder probably would've won a best supporting actor Oscar in any year that he wasn't pitted against Heath Ledger.
