Oscar Watching: “It’s So Fluffy”… and Awful?

Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Barkhad Abdi’s lived-in Phillips performance might not even get a nomination since the fact-based thriller is losing steam by the minute. Critical favorite Jared Leto has the momentum, but where does Dallas Buyers Club itself fit into the season? A televised win for the actor-rock singer could seal the deal. Banks needs major… well, bank for Hanks to have a shot, while word on Jonah Hill in Wolf suggests a flashy performance (read: Oscar bait).

1. Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club

2. Michael Fassbender for 12 Years a Slave

3. Tom Hanks for Saving Mr. Banks

4. James Gandolfini for Enough Said

5. Jonah Hill for The Wolf of Wall Street

6. Will Forte for Nebraska
7. Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips
8. Jeremy Renner for American Hustle
9. Bradley Cooper for American Hustle
10. David Oyelowo for Lee Daniels’ The Butler

Also in the running: Jake Gyllenhaal for Prisoners, Matthew McConaughey for Mud, Steve Coogan for Philomena, Harrison Ford for 42, John Goodman for Inside Llewyn Davis, Josh Brolin for Labor Day, Daniel Brühl for Rush, Geoffrey Rush for The Book Thief, Chris Cooper for August: Osage County, Woody Harrelson for Out of the Furnace, Andrew Dice Clay for Blue Jasmine, Alec Baldwin for Blue Jasmine
