Oscar Watch – Supporting Actor

Christopher Plummer - Beginners - 2012 Best Supporting Actor

Christopher Plummer – Beginners – 2012 Best Supporting Actor

The nominees for Best Supporting Actor this year are –

  • Alan Arkin – Argo
  • Robert DeNiro – Silver Linings Playbook
  • Phillip Seymour Hoffman – The Master
  • Tommy Lee Jones – Lincoln
  • Christoph Waltz – Django Unchained

So far the winners in this same/similar category from other shows are –

  • Tommy Lee Jones – Screen Actor’s Guild
  • Phillip Seymour Hoffman – Chicago Film Critics
  • Matthew McConaughey – New York Film Critics
  • Christoph Waltz – BAFTA
  • Christoph Waltz – Golden Globes

Ok, the New York Film Critics are clearly high as a mother f***ing kite so lets ignore that one.  Going by the same logic I would use for Best Supporting Actress that would mean Tommy Lee Jones and I am not ready to go down that dour patch of life.  I am pulling for Phillip Seymour Hoffman on this one but could imagine Alan Arkin snatching this one as well.  Too close to call and I will have to pick a lane shortly.
