    This is hard, because I watched the film for the first time today. I’ll try watch it again, and then vote. But right now, I’d choose between Firth, Cumberbatch and Hardy, but they were all exceptional, and I believe you could make a case for almost any of them.

    Had Colin Firth not won during the last two years, the supporting race would be over for this year. Instead, he won’t be nominated.

    It’s the first time I’ve ever really been excited by one of his performances (mainly because it came in a really superior movie).

    Firth was good…he had no dialogue til nearly the end..  i dont think he would be a nominee even if it was his 1st nomination.
    For me, the best performance was by JOHN HURT.  always brilliant and overlooked since the 70’s and 1980’s elephant Man
    I also like this CUMBERBATCH  actor…hes been around and lately ive enjoyed him in a few films..
    I find T. Jones always Capotesque and annoying…Hardy is riveting as is Oldman…
    I loved this movie alot

    The ensemble is stellar from top to bottom, but I think Tom Hardy was the luckiest in terms of getting the most to work with. His character had one of the few openly emotional moments in the film, so he benefits from getting to be a little more showy than the rest. I thought he was great. And Benedict Cumberbatch has one of the most conspicuous screen presences to rise up in the last few years. He’s sort of a male Tilda Swinton, in that he has an unusually proportioned face, almost alien-like, and it’s hard to take your eyes off of him whenever he’s onscreen. He pulls focus in Tinker Tailor whenever he enters a shot, currently does the same thing in War Horse, and dominates Sherlock. I can’t wait for him to get the truly meaty parts that he deserves.

    Also, Colin Firth’s final scene in the movie has got to be one of the most hauntingly beautiful images put to film in 2011. Stunning.

    LOL! This cracked up, but it’s exactly how I feel about Cumberbatch.

    Quite a stellar ensemble. I quite liked Mark Strong and Tom Hardy. Hardy hasn’t been this good since Bronson! Although, I hear he has a pretty great performance in “Warrior” which I’m bound to check out soon. Something about Toby Jones is utterly terrifying to me.
