Oscar Watching: HUSTLE for 12 YEARS

Best Actress in a Supporting Role

Remember how I – and many others – said Oprah Winfrey should walk away with the Globe despite the HFPA’s lack of love for The Butler? Well, she missed out on a nod, so that’s not happening. She should, however, make the Oscar lineup along with her fellow SAG nominees: Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts, and June Squibb. Lawrence gets the Globe, probably, but Nyong’o should take SAG and Oscar (and BAFTA). Roberts, by the way, might not stick.

1. Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave

2. June Squibb for Nebraska

3. Jennifer Lawrence for American Hustle

4. Oprah Winfrey for Lee Daniels’ The Butler

5. Julia Roberts for August: Osage County

6. Sally Hawkins for Blue Jasmine
7. Octavia Spencer for Fruitvale Station
8. Scarlett Johansson for Her
9. Margo Martindale for August: Osage County
10. Sarah Paulson for 12 Years a Slave

Best Actor in a Supporting Role

Naturally, Barkhad Abdi picks up SAG and Globe nods as soon as I write him off. Still, it’s Jared Leto’s award to lose unless Michael Fassbender has something to say about it; his lack of a campaign suggests he doesn’t. Tom Hanks’s Banks performance missing with the guild means something; even more telling is the HFPA’s dismissal of his Walt Disney performance. Oh, and Daniel Brühl apparently returns to contention.

1. Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club

2. Michael Fassbender for 12 Years a Slave

3. James Gandolfini for Enough Said

4. Jonah Hill for The Wolf of Wall Street

5. Barkhad Abdi for Captain Phillips

6. Will Forte for Nebraska
7. Bradley Cooper for American Hustle
8. Daniel Brühl for Rush,
9. Jeremy Renner for American Hustle
10. Tom Hanks for Saving Mr. Banks


John Ridley should take adapted screenplay, but who win original?
