    The Supporting Actor Oscar race could be a dogfight this year. There are several actors with strong buzz in high profile roles who could end up in the Oscar race.

    Between the Django guys (DiCaprio, Jackson, Waltz, etc.), Matthew McConaughey, Benicio Del Toro (“Savages”), The Gangster Squad guys, The Twelve Years As a Slave Guys (Fassbender, Pitt) and a slew of others, this is shaping up to be an extremely competitive year for the category.

    Supporting Actor has been painfully weak the past few years allowing one actor to sweep all of the prizes. Maybe this year the industry will spread the wealth since so many seasoned veterans and A-listers are in the mix.

    Also, I know everyone is declaring DiCaprio the early frontrunner, but doesn’t he feel like a lead Oscar waiting to happen? Then again, we said the same about Renee Zellweger.

    Any thoughts?

    Twelve Years a Slave is a 2013 FILM.

    I feel like either Philip Seymour Hoffman or Joaquin Phoenix will go supporting for The Master.  At this point I’m not sure which will go where, but I think these two will be very competitive where ever they are submitted.

    I really hope Fassbender won’t be forgotten for ‘Prometheus’. He truly is phenomenal in the film and absolutely steals the show and has the best character arc to boot.

    Based on trailers, leaked screenplays and history, I have a feeling this category will be between the Django guys (although based on the screenplay I don’t expect to see Jackson generating awards buzz)

    From the trailers, it looks like Leo DiCaprio’s role is like Christoph Waltz’s part in “Inglorious Bastards”. And we know how that worked out. Also Dwight Henry could be a player too. That movie seems like it is a modern day take on Italian neorealism.

    Don’t forget the guys from Argo, Lincoln, Dwight Henry for Beasts of the Southern Wild, James Gandolfini for Killing Them Softly, Jude Law for Anna Karenina, Bill Macyfor The Sessions, The Moonrise Kingdom guys etc.

    Right now I’m going with:

    (alphabetical)
    Russell Crowe, Les Miserables
    Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained
    Dwight Henry, Beasts of the Southern Wild
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman, The Master
    David Strathairn, Lincoln

    ———————————————
    6. Samuel L. Jackson, Django Unchained
    7. James Gandolfini, Killing them Softly
    8. John Goodman, Argo
    9. Jude Law, Anna Karenina
    10. Bruce Willis, Moonrise Kingdom/William H. Macy, The Sessions

    I think Jude Law has a good chance of win if Anna Karenina work out well, his character is really good and he deserves some recognition.

    Supporting actress is the most competitive category with vetrans like Redgrave, Carter, Bening and younger like Hathaway, Adams, Fisher then there is also the potential breakout of Samantha Barks.
