Thats only question mark in this year’s acting categories at oscars isnt? DiCaprio and Stallone were i think the only ones with Standing O at EVERY big event (SAG, Globes, CC) They are this year’s darlings.January 31, 2016 at 11:13 am #214013
I hope it’s DiCaprio – he’s had significantly better roles and films in his career, I don’t think he’s really put a foot wrong. He is the people’s champion, is using his status for the greater good with his environmental work, and is much more overdue than Stallone.

Leo for sure. He was the only one who got a standing one yesterday. Stallone will get respect but Leo is one of the best ever and a megastarJanuary 31, 2016 at 11:24 am #214015
He’s still relevant after all of these decades, can make a BP winner on 5 bucks, and there will be those in the crowd whom he helped make and resurrect their careers.
I sure hope he wins.

We all know DiCaprio has the better career, pedigree and stardom. But I guess Stallone’s one would be the longer, mainly for an age matter. He’s been a Hollywood presence much, much longer than DiCaprio. DiCaprio is still young and clearly not a veteran.
Anyway, I don’t like SOs. They’re supposed to be special. Now simply everyone gets one for the sole fact of winning.January 31, 2016 at 11:33 am #214016
Supporting actor award is always first to hand so Oscars will start with BANG.January 31, 2016 at 11:53 am #214018
I hope it will be DiCaprio because Sly doesn’t deserve all those awards and standing ovations.January 31, 2016 at 2:04 pm #214019
Stallone because he has the better narrative. He was the American dream when he made Rocky – a guy who had nothing under his name but a script to what would be the Best Picture of that year and an icon with a statue in Philadelphia. The film was showered with honors except for Sly himself.
DiCaprio’s losses over the years were deserved, and this “narrative to Oscars” was essentially made up by his fans and the internet. He’s far from being the biggest loser in Oscar history.January 31, 2016 at 2:09 pm #214020
Stallone. It’s not just about him as Rocky, but also for Rocky the character in general. People love both way too much apparently, even 40 years later.January 31, 2016 at 2:33 pm #214022
Inevitable wins are hurt a little bit, so Stallone has the advantage because he lost SAG and will lose BAFTA.
DiCaprio will be giving speeches all of the time, so it is less of a surprise. Stil, DiCaprio deserves a longer one.January 31, 2016 at 2:34 pm #214021
I do think it will be Stallone. I half expect him to run up to the stage and raise his arms like Rocky before grabbing the statue.
I do wonder what would happen if they were in the same category though. I’ve been quite surprised that there’s been no mention of category fraud with regards to Stallone, even though I’m fine with him in supporting. But he does play basically the exact same role as Eastwood’s lead actor nominated performance in Million Dollar Baby, and is essentially a co-lead in Creed. If they were against each other, this race might have actually felt competitive.January 31, 2016 at 2:37 pm #214023
Mark Ruffalo – 38 mins (32% of film)
Christian Bale – 35 mins (29% of film)
Mark Rylance – 38 mins (29% of film)
Tom Hardy – 35 mins (24% of film)
Sylvester Stallone – 53 mins (42% of film)
It’s more than anyone else, but it’s not overwhelming, so I think the supporting placement is justified.January 31, 2016 at 2:40 pm #214024
