Best Supporting Actor
1. Brad Pitt, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood
2. William Defaoe, The Lighthouse
3. John Lithgow, Bombshell
4. Matt Damon, Ford v Ferrari
5. Sterling K Brown, WavesSeptember 14, 2019 at 4:59 pm #1203075026
Why people are so high on Brown? his movie wont get other nominations and its hard to be lone nominee in supporting categories. you have to have film in best picture usually. Unless you are legendary actorSeptember 14, 2019 at 5:23 pm #1203075056
I’m only predicting Brown because it’s very possible Waves is top 3 people choice at TIFF and Ford vs Ferrari has a worse MC score than Rush. If Waves doesnt hit top 3, I’ll probably readd Dafoe. I also have no confidence in Irishman.September 14, 2019 at 5:44 pm #1203075117
Well Dafoe had been pretty much locked up that year until Rockwell, a non-factor prior won at the Globe, along with the movie also winning big at the Globe. I mean I did envision Janney to upset Metcalf (the favorite then) because she’s still a veteran and long and well-liked enough in the industry. But never did I think about Dafoe losing to Rockwell at the Globe (I didn’t even think Rockwell would win anything), it was just so unthinkable to me. And it did happen. So yes, it was indeed Dafoe’s year until the Globe. And please don’t get me started on Mahershala. Supporting actor that year was just incredibly dull and dude was just really lucky.
I predicted Rockwell was gonna win the night I saw Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. His Globe win only solidified that. I actually thought Christopher Plumber was gonna take the Globe. It just felt like something they’d do. Moving back to Rockwell, I thought his win was one of the most deserving of the decade. It’s one of those roles that could’ve easily fallen flat in another actor’s hands, but Rockwell made it work beautifully.
As for Mahershala, I strongly disagree. That was not a weak lineup. I didn’t see Michael Shannon, but Dev Patel, Jeff Bridges, and Lucas Hedges all gave wonderful performances. Ali’s work may not be very showy, but it’s layered and emotional in a way that resonated strongly with many people. While he was only in the first third, his performance and character still looms over Chiron’s story till the very end. He earned that trophy.September 15, 2019 at 3:34 am #1203075978
I was told by someone who saw FvF that if one of them is to run in supporting it should be bale, huhSeptember 15, 2019 at 4:11 am #1203075995
Well, Supporting is his best chance imo. Lead Actor is stacked. Supporting isn’t stable yet since e.g. we have no reviews yet for The Irishman men.September 15, 2019 at 6:25 am #1203076171
Darlings, Tearing K. Brown is winning a la King.
I think the same. He’s the only black contender I can see winning at this point of the race and the AMPAS wants to sell the “embrace diversity” idea. Best Actress will be Zellweger or Johansson, Best Actor will be Phoenix or Driver and Supporting Actress keeps without a clear front-runner, but I don’t belie Zhou (Asian) or Lopez (latina) will win. And Brown has the stellar reviews

September 15, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1203077153
- Brad Pitt, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
- Tom Hanks, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
- Christian Bale, Ford v Ferrari
- RDJ, Avengers: Endgame (yes, I know)
- Sam Rockwell, Jojo Rabbit
I was told by someone who saw FvF that if one of them is to run in supporting it should be bale, huh
It’s crazy how divided everyone seems to be on this. I believe it was Anne Thompson on the Indiewire podcast who said if Bale goes supporting it would be the worst case of category fraud.
