    Every year it seems like some out of nowhere performance gets nominated at the Oscars with out any to little talk or nominations from anywhere else (in terms of Globes, SAG, BAFTA, Critics Choice) 

    2013- Jonah Hill “The Wolf of Wall Street”
    2012- Jacki Weaver “Silver Linings Playbook”
    2011- Max Von Sydow “Extermely Loud & Incredibly Close”
    2010- Javier Bardem “Biutiful”
    2009- Maggie Gyllenhaal “Crazy Heart”
    2008-  Michael Shannon “Revolutionary Road” 
    2007- Tommy Lee Jones “In the Vally of Elah”  

    I’m not going to go all the way but feel free to add some others that kind of came out of no where. 

    Who do you think has the potential to do so this year? In what category?

    What about William Hurt for A History of Violence? His performance was insanely good in an insanely short period of time but personally I wasn’t expecting him to factor a nomination! This year I’m thinking Katherine Waterson, Carrie Coon or Miles Teller could get surprise nominations. Also Sienna Miller.

    Sienna Miller for American Sniper. It’s obviously too early to know what doesn’t get in at precursors, but I have a good feeling about this movie, and her character seems strong. I think it’s foolish to not consider her a contender.

    He was actually nominated by the Screen Actors Guild before the Oscar.

    Harrison Ford, 42. Oh wait, he wasn’t nominated. Blah.

     

    Maybe Carrie Coon this year?

    I’d also include Laura Linney in The Savages. She didn’t even get an Independent Spirit Award nomination. 

    This year, hm. It’s always hard to say because you never know what will seem like an out of nowhere nomination on nomination morning as opposed to months beforehand. Dave Karger used to be the authority to go to in his final nominations on who that would be (I remember him calling Linney, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Sydow and Weaver), but it would seem that Scott Feinberg has recently overtaken that mantle (having called Hill last year). 

    Some potentials:
    Josh Brolin for Inherent Vice
    Anne Dorval for Mommy (if they give it a qualifying release) 
    Kristen Stewart for Still Alice
    Channing Tatum for Foxcatcher

    To answer a few of you guys of name mentions: 

    I thought Linney was nominated for a Globe so that’s why I didn’t include her but when I looked her back up apparently she didn’t. Thanks for that add

    Like someone said Bichir was nominated at SAG

    And I must have over looked Hurt as well. 

    I think like in the past few years this will happen in a Supporting category.

    I’m still not sure why GD underestimates Jonah Hill. I predicted him both times with reasonable confidence.

    I was more weary of my Christian Bale pick than anything else.

    Matthew McConaughey for Interstellar – defending champ in what will likely be the year’s biggest box office/critical triumph that is CLEARLY beloved in Hollywood. It doesn’t hurt that the actors branch will most likely see the movie due to the buzz surrounding Chastain. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if Hathaway nabs the 5th slot in actress.
