2023 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions

As with leading men, the winner of Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars is usually one of the more seasoned competitors. Of the 86 winners to date, only four Best Supporting Actor champs were in their 20s and just 15 were thirtysomething, including 2021 champ Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Messiah”). The 2022 winner, Troy Kostur, was 53 when he prevailed for “CODA.” He joined 14 previous winners who were in their 50s when they took home the trophy. (Scroll down for the most up-to-date 2023 Oscars Best Supporting Actor predictions.)

Eleven more men were in their 60s when they won Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards. For eight fellows, it took till they were in their 70s to win while two (George Burns for “The Sunshine Boys” and Christopher Plummer for “Beginners”) were north of 80 when they took home their only Oscars.

At the 2019 Academy Awards, Mahershala Ali claimed the prize for “Green Book.” He had won this same category just two years earlier for “Moonlight.” He was the 31st (and 29th) winner of this award to be in his 40s. Sam Rockwell, who won in 2018 for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” was the 30th, having picked up this prize eight months before he turned 50.
