    I saw Steve Jobs twice loving Jeff Daniel’s performance and left the theater thinking he could go all the way and win an Oscar for this role. But since he was snubbed by the SAG awards does that mean he has no chance?

    Supporting actor seems like a big jumble of mess haha. I think anything is possible.

    I don’t think he was ever a contender to begin with. Only Fassbender and Winslet have a shot, I reckon.

    Unfortunately, as good as he was, the field is too crowded and frankly, there’s better performances out there.

    You say this like he had much of a chance to begin with.

    Tony’s not the only person who thought Daniels had a chance – there are some I’m seeing who are still holding out for him. But the race is tightening, and good-not-great performances (or ones that lack flash) are being shoveled off.

    He really needed this nom more than any other. I would have never predicted that Bale or Shannon would get a nom before Daniels (for their respective films), especially with Steve Jobs on SAG’s radar (i.e. Noms for Fassbender and Winslet). Tremblay is a surprise too, but we know his performance is being seen because of Larson’s frontrunner status. 

    I feel like there is a role awaiting Daniels that will give him a near sweep with critics and the televised awards shows. Sort of like J.K. Simmons last year. For now, he can set his sights on his Broadway play and maybe it’ll result into a Tony win.

    Daniels never had much luck at the Oscars. Despite a fine performance, he was the only major player ignored during the sweep for Terms of Endearment.

    He replaced Michael Keaton mid production in Woody Allen’s The Purple Rose of Cairo, but his sensational work only scored a nomination at the Golden Globes. Same was true for Something Wild and The Squid and the Whale.

    Daniels’s category is seriously in flux. Anything’s possible at this stage.

    Daniels’ 

    I would like him to pop up somewhere but I’m not counting on him. Just too many players in this Supporting Actor field
