SPECIAL TO THE FAC: BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR 12 DAYS OUT
In what is generally considered a two horse race, at this point Christopher Plummer seems to have the edge over Albert Brooks and then it’s a battle for the other three spots. Here’s the latest compilation with the only Telluride #38 contender in bold and large).
The following has been collated using publicly accessed information from:
Thompson on Hollywood
Rope of Silicon
Scott Feinberg/The Hollywood Reporter
Dave Karger/Entertainment Weekly
1) Christopher Plummer/Beginners
2) Albert Brooks/Drive
3) Kenneth Brannagh/My Week with Marilyn
4) Jonah Hill/Moneyball
5) Nick Nolte/Warrior
In the Running:
6) Armie Hammer/J. Edgar
7) Patton Oswalt/Young Adult
8) Max Von Sydow/Extremely Loud
8) Viggo Mortensen/A Dangerous Method (tie)
10) Andy Serkis/Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Others getting notice:
Asa Butterflied/Hugo, Ben Kingsley/Hugo, Kevin Spacey/Margin Call, Corey Stoll/Midnight in Paris, Robert Forster/Descendants, Brad Pitt/Tree of Life.
HOT: Hill, Hammer, Mortensen and Serkis
NOT: Von Sydow
THOUGHT: In addition to Plummer and Brooks, Brannagh appears to be a lock for a nomination. Currently, Hill and Nolte appear to be fairly comfortable as well.
Tomorrow, I’ll take a look at the race for both types of screenplays.
