    To those who’ve been guessing Bradley Cooper as the runner-up to Daniel Day-Lewis in the 2012 Best Actor race, here’s why I don’t think so:

    1. As Tom O’Neil keeps saying “in order to win, you gotta have the most of something. The bigger performance wins the acting prize.” As great as Bradley Cooper was in Silver Linings Playbook, you can still see its Bradley Cooper.

    2. Even in a year without Daniel Day-Lewis in contention, Bradley Cooper probably still would’ve suffered from the whole ‘slap the stud’ syndrome.

    3. It is worth noting that the one major award where Bradley Cooper was not up against Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln (which was the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical), Hugh Jackman beat him for Les Misérables. The last time someone managed to win the Oscar for Best Actor without a prior win at the Globes was 2008. That year, Mickey Rourke had won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for The Wrestler over the eventual Oscar winner, Sean Penn in Milk.

    4. Speaking of Hugh Jackman, I personally think he could’ve won Best Actor in 2012 had it not been for the Daniel Day-Lewis juggernaut. Jean Valjean in Les Misérables is a beast of a role, and Jackman did a lot to pull off his performance, which included shaving his head, growing a beard, and losing weight for the beginning. Not to mention that he did an entire sung-through musical where everything was recorded live on set.

    Now that the 2019 Oscars are behind us, my guesses for the runners-up are Adam Driver (Marriage Story) for Best Actor and Joe Pesci (The Irishman) for Best Supporting Actor.

    Like I did with the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress runner-up, for here, I’m only going to guess as far back as the year I was born:

    Best Actor:
    1990—Kevin Costner
    1992—Denzel Washington
    1993—Liam Neeson
    1994—Morgan Freeman
    1997—Matt Damon
    1998—Edward Norton
    1999—Denzel Washington
    2015—Michael Fassbender

    The following guesses where I disagree with you are:

    1990: While I can see the case for Kevin Costner given that he was starring in the Best Picture that year, Dances with Wolves, I have a feeling that it might’ve been Gérard Depardieu for Cyrano de Bergerac. He was taking on a classic character, and also had the visibility factor that year with his Golden Globe-winning performance in Green Card.

    1992: I think it was Robert Downey, Jr. given that he was playing film icon Charlie Chaplin. Plus, he did win the BAFTA (which is an industry award) that year.

    1993: While I do think Liam Neeson was the likely runner-up given that he was starring in the Best Picture winner, Schindler’s List, it is worth noting that Anthony Hopkins had actually beaten him at BAFTA that year for The Remains of the Day.

    1994: I’m kind of leaning more towards Nigel Hawthorne given his BAFTA win the following year for The Madness of King George.

    1997: I’m leaning more towards Peter Fonda given that he was an acting veteran who prior to the Oscars had won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for Ulee’s Gold.

    1998: I’m leaning more towards Ian McKellen given that he was the only other Oscar nominee that year who managed to win a major Best Actor precursor, which was Critics’ Choice for Gods & Monsters (as well as Apt Pupil). Plus, he was playing real-life filmmaker James Whale in the former movie.

    1999: While Denzel Washington did beat Kevin Spacey at the Golden Globes for The Hurricane, Russell Crowe did so as well at Critics’ Choice for The Insider, which was a Best Picture nominee.

    2015: This is tricky to figure out who could’ve won had it not been for the Leonardo DiCaprio juggernaut. I’m leaning more towards Matt Damon given his Golden Globe win for Best Actor in a Comedy/Musical as well as the fact that he was the only other Oscar contender who was in a Best Picture nominee, The Martian.

    One thing to point out is that Denzel never won at BAFTA, which is another issue in itself, but I do think that Denzel was probably second in 1992 for Malcolm X.

    He’s never even been nominated at BAFTA either.

    You guys are forgetting that back in 90s the BAFTAs were only awarded AFTER the Oscars. so I wouldn’t use it as an argument. I also think Denzel was the runner-up in 1992 for Malcolm X. 

    Bradley was definitely NOT the runner-up. He didn’t even win at GG in a category without Day-Lewis and Phoenix. He was 4th at best. Jackman was the most likely runner-up with Phoenix in 3rd.

    Yeah, I think Joaquin Phoenix probably would’ve at least won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama for The Master had it not been for the Daniel Day-Lewis juggernaut. As for the Oscar, I’m not so sure about that given his comments on the academy at the time.

    Like I did with the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress runner-up, for here, I’m only going to guess as far back as the year I was born:

    Best Supporting Actor:
    1990—Al Pacino
    1991—Tommy Lee Jones
    1992—Jack Nicholson
    1993—Ralph Fiennes
    1994—Samuel L. Jackson
    1995—Ed Harris
    1996—William H. Macy
    1997—Burt Reynolds
    1998—Ed Harris
    1999—Haley Joel Osment
    2000—Joaquin Phoenix
    2001—Ian McKellen
    2002—Christopher Walken
    2003—Benicio Del Toro
    2004—Thomas Haden Church
    2005—Jake Gyllenhaal
    2006—Eddie Murphy
    2007—Tom Wilkinson
    2008—Josh Brolin
    2009—Woody Harrelson
    2010—Geoffrey Rush
    2011—Jonah Hill
    2012—Tommy Lee Jones
    2013—Michael Fassbender
    2014—Edward Norton
    2015—Sylvester Stallone
    2016—Dev Patel
    2017—Willem Dafoe
    2018—Richard E. Grant

    The following guesses where I disagree with you are:

    1990: I’m leaning more towards Bruce Davison given his win at the Golden Globes for Longtime Companion.

    1996: I’m leaning more towards Edward Norton given his Golden Globe win for Primal Fear.

    1998: The Best Supporting Actor race that year appeared to have been quite a toss-up as different people were winning different precursors. Ed Harris had won the Golden Globe for The Truman Show, Billy Bob Thornton won Critics’ Choice for A Simple Plan, Robert Duvall won SAG for A Civil Action, and Geoffrey Rush won BAFTA for the Best Picture winner, Shakespeare in Love. Yet, they all lost the Oscar to James Coburn for Affliction.

    1999: For the second year in a row, the Best Supporting Actor race appeared to have been quite a toss-up as different people were winning different precursors. Tom Cruise had won the Golden Globe for Magnolia, Michael Clarke Duncan won Critics’ Choice for The Green Mile, the eventual Oscar winner Michael Caine won SAG for The Cider House Rules, and Jude Law won BAFTA for The Talented Mr. Ripley. With those factors in mind, I think Haley Joel Osment might’ve finished in fifth place for The Sixth Sense.

    2000: While I can definitely see the case for Joaquin Phoenix given that he’s in the Best Picture winner of that year, Gladiator, Albert Finney was the overdue veteran who had won SAG for Erin Brockovich leading up to the Oscars.

    2004: I’m kind of leaning more towards Clive Owen given his wins at the Golden Globes and BAFTA for Closer.

    2005: While I can see the case for Jake Gyllenhaal (especially given his BAFTA win for Brokeback Mountain), I’m leaning more towards Paul Giamatti since he did manage to win the Critics’ Choice and SAG for Cinderella Man.

    2008: I’m kind of leaning more towards Philip Seymour Hoffman given that unlike Josh Brolin, he was nominated by every single precursor for Doubt. Robert Downey, Jr. was for Tropic Thunder as well, but I’m not sure if that’s the kind of performance that would go all the way.

    2011: I’m kind of leaning more towards Kenneth Branagh given that he was playing the legendary Laurence Olivier in My Week with Marilyn. Plus, he was the only other Best Supporting Actor nominee that year who was recognized by every single precursor.

    2013: While I can see the case for Michael Fassbender given that he was in the Best Picture winner of that year, 12 Years a Slave, it is worth noting that the only major precursor where Jared Leto wasn’t even in contention for Dallas Buyers Club was BAFTA since at that point, the film itself hadn’t been released in the U.K. yet. Meanwhile, Barkhad Abdi was able to win there for Captain Phillips in his absence.

    I know many of you want to believe that Timothee was runner up but I’m not buying it. CMBYN completely underperformed while Phantom Thread exploded. Not to mention it got into categories that no one saw coming. It was Day-Lewis last movie and he’s was one of the most respected and beloved actors (still is). Timothee was still very unknown to most of the Academy and he was very young (the Academy seems to have an issue with young male actors in the lead category).

    This year, I think it’s clear that the runner-up for Best Actor was Chadwick Boseman for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. As for Best Supporting Actor, I’m guessing Sacha Baron Cohen for The Trial of the Chicago 7.
