Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

November 13th Update.

While there aren't many drastic changes in this category, we have a new #1 and a few others change positions. Daniel Bruhl falls out of the top 5 due to Rush failing at the box office and being overshadowed by other films. Again, I'm including the changes from last time at the end of each write up.

1. Jared Leto- Dallas Buyers Club

Jared Leto has been getting terrific early notices as a transgender HIV patient in Dallas Buyers Club. He also went through a tremendous physical transformation as well, weighing as little as 116 pounds during filming. (Previously #2)

2. Michael Fassbender- 12 Years a Slave

Fassbender plays the evil slave owner in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. Fassbender has gained a lot of respect the last few years. The villain role has been a staple for Best Supporting Actor, and I expect Fassbender to be rewarded here especially after the outstanding reviews. (Previously #3)

3. Tom Hanks- Saving Mr. Banks

Tom Hanks looks poised to rejoin the Oscar race for the first time in 13 years with top performances this year. Hanks plays the iconic Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks. I'm mostly dropping him a few spots because I feel he's more likely to be nominated for Captain Phillips. (Previously #1)

4. Jonah Hill- The Wolf of Wall Street
Oscar Predictions Best Supporting Actor, Jonah Hill, Jonah Hill Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorese, Leonardo DiCaprio
Jonah Hill will star in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. It's a high profile film. Hill managed to pull off a nomination for Moneyball. Now he gets to work with one of the best. We'll see what happens. (Previously #5)

5. Barkhad Abdi- Captain Phillips

Abdi seeming came out of nowhere. He was fantastic opposite Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips and with great reviews, he has a real chance for to make some noise here. (Previously unranked)

Other Possibilities

6. Daniel Bruhl-  Rush (Previously #3)

7. Joshn Brolin- Labor Day (Previously #6)

8. Bradley Cooper- American Hustle (Previously #8)

9. James Gandolfini- Enough Said (Previously unranked)

10. Jake Gyllennhaal- Prisoners (Previously unranked)
