    My choice is Hoffman, who may be lead but I think hes the best of the bunch here followed by the amazing Christoph Waltz.

    Waltz was unreal in Django. De Niro was his best since the late 80’s in Silver Linings. Jones was a major standout in Lincoln. Haven’t seen The Master but judging by the trailers, amazing. Alan Arkin’s nomination is a joke. Any of the first four deserve to take it.

    1. Waltz
    2. De Niro
    3. Jones
    4. Hoffman (only because I haven’t seen the film)

    5. Alan Arkin

    In terms of pure performance quality I think Philip Seymour Hoffman desreves to win this one, I don’t think he’s ever been better.

    My problem lies with him not ACTUALLY being in a Supporting Role. Either way, I do hope he wins, both to reward his incredible work, and make the film an Academy Award winner, which would be nice.

    Hoffman wasn’t really supporting but he wasn’t really lead as well. He was Co-lead/Supporting

    Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christoph Waltz were both brilliant but leads in their film so I will go with the best SUPPORTING performance in this group which is Tommy Lee Jones who was darkly hilarious as a man burning with disdain for his fellow man.

    Hard for me to decide between Waltz and Jones, but I think I ultimately lean toward the former.

    Hoffman very easily. He blows all the other nominees away by a mile. I think it really is his best performance. Everybody will talk about Joaquin, rightfully, so, but Hoffman is absolutely brilliant.

    I don’t think Tommy Lee Jones deserved to get in at all. I like Arkin, but if it wasn’t for “Argo F yourself” he wouldn’t be in the line-up. I thought Affleck actually was the best actor of the bunch.

    I really enjoyed DeNiro in Playbook. A vulnerable side that we usually never see from him. Waltz was also fantastic, but I think DiCaprio should have gotten in instead of him. No slack on Waltz who absolutely is wonderful, but I would have liked to see Leo get nominated.

    As for who’ll win? I honestly think every one of them has a chance. Jones emerged as a frontrunner, but has won nothing. If Lincoln turns out to be the jauggernaunt that 12 nominations suggests it might, he will probably slide in. Hoffman, like I said should win. He has appeared at every guild and won the BFCA award, but as this year proves, precusors don’t matter. Waltz seems unlikely, but that Globe win really changed the race. He did get nominated over heavyweights like DiCaprio and Bardem.

    Arkin did virtually nothing in his role and Jones was forgettable in Lincoln (a film whose only actor I’d nominate would be Daniel-Day Lewis).

    I liked the other three nominees, but Waltz is lead, and I wouldn’t call de Niro Oscar-worthy for this particular role, so Hoffman (who gave an astounding performance) gets my vote!

    Jim Broadbent, by a MILE; although, imo, he’s a Lead.

    Having now seen them all I’d vote cancelling the whole category this year. Worst line up in any acting category I can ever remember. Some one is going to win a 2nd (Or 3rd) Oscar for some really mediocre work.
