    JK Simmons and Miles Teller look strong here.

    I’ve loved Simmon’s work for such a long time. A nomination finally? If he gains some traction and good notices for this, it’s a foundation down the (immediate) road, if he puts in another (dramatic) performance right afterwards. I’m guessing that no nomination this time, but maybe next. It recalls Jack Black a bit for me, in Bernie.

    I’m so excited for this. The studio is releasing it at the right time, and if they campaign well enough, J.K. Simmons has a strong chance of getting an Oscar nomination. The dude deserves it. He’s not gotten a single nomination for an Oscar, Golden Globe, or Emmy. He’s basically the poster boy for underrated actors.

    J.K. Simmons looks really good in this. Here’s hoping.

     

    My current predictions:

    * Robert Duvall, The Judge
    Edward Norton, Birdman
    Mark Ruffalo, Foxcatcher
    J.K. Simmons, Whiplash
    Tom Wilkinson, Selma

    Give him an nomination, but don’t give him any lemons.

    I think a nomination for him is most definite. It is a sort of situation like with Richard Jenkins in The Visitor. A siuation where the academy decides to give a nomination to the character actor.

    I think it’s very likely. Respected character actor, never been nominated before, acclaimed “best of his career” reviews, the type of tough-love mentor role that does well in this category (Pat Morita, Burgess Meredith, Geoffrey Rush, etc.), 2nd lead (i believe) competing in the supporting category. If the season really fills up than he’ll have to fight tooth and nail to get in, but right now I think he has a great chance

    I’m willing to put him as the frontrunner based solely on that trailer. If he has any sensitive moments to complement that intensity, then I would put some money on him getting nominated. I’m not willing to say that he ‘should’ until I see it, but I certainly hope it’s worthy.

    Looks intriguing!  If the movie does well critically, I think Simmons stands a very good chance!

    I think he is overdue and this looks like it will be pretty good it was a huge hit at Sundance

    I also hope that Melissa Benoist from Glee has some good moments. She is very talented and I hope this is big enough to make her a rising star.

    Look at J.K. Simmons! There’s some strong hints of Schillinger in this performance! First Oscar nomination, perhaps?
